A NEW DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
You are the first wave, if you agree, its up to you. Send this to everyone you know.
The Freedom Amendment is a call for the next logical evolution of the democracy envisioned by the founding fathers. The mission and vision of The Freedom Amendment is to make that idea, that democracy, that dream of liberty and freedom for all, where "We the People" actually rule our nation, a reality. This is not about “class warfare,” it is about securing equal rights, regardless of wealth. The Freedom Amendment is a civil rights movement for everyone, a New Declaration of Independence. Our mission is to clearly define a person as an individual human being under the Constitution and remove the corrupting influence of big money from the governance of our nation. We propose to create a separation of commerce and state, preserving the free enterprise system, following the same wisdom separating church and state in the original Constitution. We will do this by peaceful and lawful means allowed under that constitution. We the People, exercising our right to amend our Constitution when we deem it necessary. In that spirit we propose the 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution presented here in abridged form.
THE FREEDOM AMENDMENT
