I learned about Common Cause when I attended Power Shift in 2011. This was after the recent Citizens United court case, and it was the first time I became truly aware of the power of money in politics. Ever since then I've been very conscious about the issues involving the corrupting influence of political money. I agree with Common Cause's goals to remove corporate money from politics, and until that is accomplished, I don't believe it will be possible to achieve true democracy.
