We denounce the entrenched politicians and lobbyists:

-for engaging in all manner of corrupt practices to remain in office at any cost, attain money and accrue personal power;

-for continuously violating the public's trust and general welfare of the People of the United States of America by auctioning public policy to the highest bidder;

-for abandoning the precious covenant between those who govern and the People based upon an oath to protect and defend our Constitution;

-for placing petty partisan political interests above all other concerns including the short and long term interests of the People of the United States of America and the very continuation of this planet as a viable ecosystem for our children; and

-for failing to govern with integrity, equity and ethics absent all self-serving conflicts of interest.

WHEREFORE, the aforementioned Continental Congress 2.0 will ratify a Petition for Redress of Grievances that may or may not include grievances and solutions demanding: 

An End to Corporate Personhood
