Below is the wording for a change in the American Constitution. This is very short and to the point. If adopted and implemented, it could reduce the visible flow of money from groups and individuals that have used money to steer legislation in their favor.
What a thought! Politicians working for the people and not for the big donor.
As things stand now, this is not law; and it has a long way to get there, but it could be.
Here’s what will become the 28th Amendment:
To advance democratic self-government and political equality, and to protect the integrity of government and the electoral process, Congress and the States may regulate and set reasonable limits on the raising and spending of money by candidates and others to influence elections.
Congress and the States shall have power to implement and enforce this article by appropriate legislation, and may distinguish between natural persons and corporations or other artificial entities created by law, including by prohibiting such entities from spending money to influence elections.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange marks two years in Ecuadorean embassy
Sitting around, kicking his heels, and still the detention order from Sweden is in place. This is in contrast to the efforts to have it removed by the same courts that put it in place. Confused.
The French have this month granted Assange citizenship. That is no help, because if he steps out of the Ecuadorian embassy, he will be detained and repatriated to Sweden.
US scientists unethically sold blood
A study was carried out on an indigenous group of Indians in Ecuador. This study was found to have taken some 3500 blood samples from the Indians without permission.
A number of these samples have been sold to pharmaceutical companies. This group of Indians is known for a unique genetic profile and disease immunity.
This happened despite Ecuador's constitutional ban on the use of genetic material, making this a violation of human rights.
