Country Music Star, Distinguished Advisory Board Promote TBOR

March 30, 2016 @ 5:32 am
by admin
Auburn, AL – Wednesday’s announcement of distinguished Advisory Board Members from throughout the United States comes the day after a visit from Country Rocker Donica Knight, whose song Love Ain’t A Prize was the No. 1 iTunes new country release late in 2015. We appreciate Donica already spreading the word about www.takeback.org as she has a few more followers than us (140,000 YouTube views the first three days she released her first song is a little hard for us to top). Beth Coulson will chair the National Board of Advisors for Take Back Our Republic, an independent nonpartisan group that [...]

Breitbart's excellent piece on the "Democracy Spring" effort to call attention to money in politics included a well-written summary of the founding and mission of Take Back Our Republic, as well as another paragraph on one of our Board Members, Richard Painter. While I realize there is some sensitivity about protests because of the ones centered around political events in recent weeks, the author did a nice job of laying out the case that this is not the case in the Democracy Spring effort. Rather it is an attempt to call attention to the price we all pay for a [...]

“What makes this broken process so troubling is that in 2013 alone, the U.S. government spent roughly $460 billion on federal contracts with $177 billion going to just 25 companies. And all of those taxpayer dollars were handed out to contractors who have the ability to quietly funnel money to politicians and political parties without having to tell a soul about their contributions.” Take Back ED John Pudner was recently quoted in The Salem News article.

Three updates that will debunk myths people use to avoid supporting Take Back Our Republic's conservative solutions to campaign finance reform: 1) a political indictment in San Diego for $500,000 in illegal foreign contributions, 2) our Florida chapter came together quickly with the backdrop of party gatherings and back-to-back Presidential debates during which 3) almost every Presidential candidate addressed campaign finance reform. Here are the photos, followed by the recap. 1. Myth: There is no need for HR4177 to pass Congress because there is no proof foreign money is being illegally funneled into US elections. Fact: After Take Back’s West [...]

Miami Debate 1 Recap

MIAMI - As Our Regional Coordinators from the West Coast (Francis Johnson) to the Southeast (Joe Comerford) and I converged in Miami along with all six Presidential candidates and their supporters, the first debate featured the candidates being prevented from talking about campaign finance reform. Many complain about politicians not coming up with real solutions for money in politics, but the debate here tonight was an example of the moderator being the problem. Univision debate moderator Jorge Ramos certainly asked hard-hitting questions on other issues, but when campaign finance reform came up in tonight’s debate here he did the opposite [...]
