Enforce Sarbanes-Oxley


  In 2002, in response to the Enron scandals, the Republican House and Senate under George W. Bush passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.  It was intended to clean up the way corporations were governed in order to protect investors.  It provides that CEO's and CFO's of all corporations must review the corporation's finances and certify that the information being given to the investing public is true and correct.  It is not a "mamby pamby liberal" agenda item.  The law was made by what is arguably the most conservative government we have ever had.  Why, then, is it not being enforced?  Remember the big "housing bubble" and all the people who lost money in it?  You may have lost money then yourself.  Do the people who sustained these losses not deserve justice where there was misreporting involved?  Do you not deserve justice if you were victimized yourself, perhaps through a 401K?

  Call or write your Representatives and Senators and demand that Sarbanes-Oxley violations be investigated and prosecuted.  If they do not listen, let us know!  We are here to give the people's voice back to the people.  Only by getting the corrupting influence of campaign funding out of the political process can the people begin again to control the nation's governing agenda.

A company is a piece of property, not a person.  A person is a living being with needs, hopes, dreams, and non-monetary relationships.  The government is intended to be a democracy, of, by and for the people.  Government of the people, by and for a piece of property is just  plain wrong!  Reverse Citizen’s United and end corporate personhood.  You can contact us in person at the Hamilton County Courthouse at 625 Georgia Ave., Chattanooga
