Video: 4 Questions with Chris McDonald

The legally granted right to unchecked political spending by corporations, unions, special interest groups, and wealthy individuals is silencing the voices of citizens and corrupting our ability to freely and fairly elect a representative government of, by, and for the people. American Promise exists to empower, inspire, and organize Americans to win the 28th Amendment to the Constitution. This lasting reform aims to re-balance our politics and government by putting the rights of individual citizens before the privileges of concentrated money, corporations, unions, political parties, and superPACs. Meet American Promise's new Empowerment Coordinator Chris McDonald as he discusses the organization's mission.

Video: The Role of Business in the Democracy Reform Movement

Corporations don't vote in elections, but they have a big impact on our democracy and society, for better or worse. Four business leaders from American Promise's National Business Network discuss how free enterprise and the open exchange of ideas are too often replaced by "pay-to-play" and "crony capitalism", where firms and special interests compete for favors based on political spending. In this video discussion, The Role of Business in the Democracy Reform Movement, they also discuss the controversial question of the proper role, if any, of American corporations in politics, and how business leaders can best serve their country and their business in this challenging time.
