Scott Walker, please take time out on Monday to familiarize yourself with our constitutions. And stop trampling on our rights.

At the start of this year, some of our nation’s top state legislators joined hands in Washington, D.C., with the legal institute of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) to undercut the 14th Amendment. (FAIR has been listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.)
Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the majority, threw out decades of Supreme Court precedents so as to coddle corporate expenditures on elections. If we are to obtain even the semblance of democratic self-rule, we need a constitutional amendment overturning this decision.
