Change the rules


Among these rights is “free speech,” and recent Supreme Court decisions on campaign finance have tried to establish the inane notion that the act of donating money to a campaign counts as “speech” and should not be regulated. (This would include, for example, getting rid of disclosure requirements.)

So many efforts are now underway, led by various coalitions, groups and individuals, to add an amendment to the Constitution to override these decisions, clear up these troublesome points and restore proper balance to our political system. One of these groups is called Move to Amend (movetoamend.org), and a local chapter of this group has been established in Wayne County (movetoamend.org/pa-wayne) under the name “Wayne Citizens to Reclaim Democracy” (WCRD). You can learn more about this critical issue, and Move to Amend’s proposed remedies, by coming to the Upper Delaware Unitarian Universalist Fellowship’s (UDUUF) service on Sunday, June 1, at 10:15 a.m. (I’ll be among the speakers, along with other members of WCRD.) The UDUUF meets at the Berlin Township Community Center, 50 Milanville Rd. in Beach Lake, PA.
