- Proposed statement, directed at media organizations:
- "Public campaign finance is the only way to get lobbying money out of Congress and restore its integrity. Congresspeople have to spend 85% of their time fundraising, up from 70% before Citizens United v. FEC because the candidate spending the most money wins 94% of the time. So please ask your CEO, [publisher,] and board to support appropriating e.g. $10 million campaign funds to the top two contenders six months before federal elections. The resulting campaign advertisements will directly benefit your company and indirectly benefit everyone."

I've been watching http://www.reddit.com/r/internetdefense/controversial/ that used to list https://boycottplus.org/ which seems rather drastic (but potentially very powerful and effective) but which is now listing http://stopthetrap.net that does seem like a very important issue which places the continued existence of the Foundation, Wikipedia and wikis in general at considerable risk.
