Synopsis

Anger at Washington is at an all-time high. Occupy Wall Street on the left, the Tea Partiers on the right, the supporters of Get Money Out of Politics, and others from every point on the spectrum agree: ourgovernment is corrupt, our politicians are being bought by the 1% in exchange for special favors and tax breaks, and this insanity is destroying our nation and our planet. The problem (as quoted by Lawrence Lessig in Republic,Lost) is: “Legalized bribery has become a part of the culture of how this place operates.”—-Leon Panetta “Almost a hairline’s difference separates bribes and contributions.”—-Russell B. Long “I was participating in a system oflegalized bribery. All of it is bribery, every bit of it.”—-Jack Abramoff This radical book proposes that change is possible. Not coming from the left, nor the right, nor from a new party that combines the two, but founded on a newsystem. A system where no politician who has used corporate or PAC funds, or larger sums of anyone’s money, returns to office. A system where regular people can run for office and take back our country. Only with leaderswho represent the 99% and not the 1% can we reverse the deterioration of our country and the devastation of our environment. It’s time for all of us to stand up! The solution? Vote only for candidates who agree with thefollowing pledge: The Money Out of Politics Pledge: “I agree to accept no money from any corporation, lobby, PAC, or entity other than a person, and I agree to accept no more than $100 from any individual.”
