Believe it or not, many Americans still don’t know about the TPP or even about money in politics. You can’t really blame them because Big Media chooses not to cover the stories. So what to do? Ben Cohen (co-founder of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream) is suggesting we all legally stamp our dollar bills with ink stamps provided by StampStampede.org. The ink stamps have message like, “Not to be used for bribing politicians” and “Not to be used for buying elections” and includes a brief mention to amend the Constitution so corporations are not people and money is not speech. Every dollar bill stamped ultimately reaches 875 people. Hear what’s going on. Change can’t happen without you.
