Small Business Owners and Corporate "Free Speech"


A whopping 66% of small business owners think Citizens United is bad for small business by giving large corporations  too much freedom to spend money to influence elections. Only 9% felt the reverse.

Small business owners get it: giving mammoth corpses greater "free speech rights" amplifies their voices while drowning out the voice of small business owners -- not to mention the rest of us.

Reversing Citizens United, and ending never-intended constitutional rights for corporations and the doctrine that money equals speech is one way to expand self governance.
