Hey all! democrat or republican, this is a resolution to serve you!.
Wolf pac has been going strong since 2011, and, with your help, can only get stronger.
As most have become aware, money has gathered incredible influence over our political system, and, as a result, mostly our politician don't truly represent us, but instead represent the corporations.
How will we do this? By adding ink to the constitution and presenting a new amendment to restore free and fair elections! The problem is to get an amendment passed, normally, you'll have to go through congress. Well, congress is the problem. Thankfully, thanks to article V of the constitution, we can call for an amendments convention by getting things done on the state level! That means that me and you can make history and bring the power to the people! So let's show them that our bite IS as bad as our bark and get signed on and helping!
Remember, things as simple as a phone call will make a tremendous difference. So even if you can't get too involved, simply signing on and making a call to your reps and senators will do a world of good, and it's quick and easy!

Money runs elections? The 2012 and 2014 elections beg to differ. PACs might help get you noticed, but they don't get you elected.

There's more to it than just pacs. In 2001, former CEO of the multi billion dollar company, Halliburton -- Dick Cheney chimed in on a 2000 EPA study. He asked that Congress exempt fracking from the Safe Drinking water Act and Clean Air Act. Reynolds American, a tobacco company has spent more than $700,000 in politican contributions and more than $1,000,000 in lobbying. All of that money goes to the politicians and from there goes to their adds.
I remember hearing a story from a guy with a friend in office. He asked his friend if they ever have lunch with the apposing party, and his friend said "Lunch? I don't have time for lunch. If I'm not spending half my time calling companies and trying to get money from them, I'm not doing my job right." What do you think happens when those companies five our politicians amounts of money that me and you could never afford? You don't think there are any silent promises made?

How much, exactly, do they get? You bring this up, but ignore that Unions (aka civilian lobbyists) are the highest donating group in the world. you say civilians have no voice because corporations pay Congress, but people have their own lobbyist groups that control congress and corporations.

Again, forgetting that Unions are the top donating faction among lobbyists. You and me? We aren't massive groups like corporations, but we have massive groups paying congress for us. If corporations can't donate money, neither can our unions.
