Join the “We The People” campaign against corporate power. From their online petition:
I pledge my support for America’s founding principle of government of, by and for the People. I believe that a corporation is not a person, money is not speech, and corporate money should not be allowed in our country’s elections. I pledge to work with other Americans to free today’s politics from the corrupting power of what Thomas Jefferson called “the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations.”

John Kitzhaber met with Occupy Salem demonstrators Tuesday in Willson Park, showing some support for their cause.Occupy Salem leaders said the governor and several of his staffers stopped by about 4:30 p.m. They didn’t know he’d be coming, said Peter Bergel, director of Oregon PeaceWorks.”He said a number of things along the lines of ‘I think you guys are doing a really good thing here, keeping it peaceful and focused,’ ” Bergel said. “He acknowledged we’re not damaging the park in any way; that we’re using the park the way it was meant to be used.”
