DAILY OFFERING: The Amend-O-Matic Bus Tour

The Move to Amend coalition and Ben Cohen of Ben & Jerry’s have teamed up to launch the Amend-O-Matic bus tour in an effort to gain support for a Constitutional amendment to abolish corporate personhood.

The machine is described as “a public art spectacle, information center and money stamping machine.”  Visitors will be able to insert a dollar bill and have it stamped with one of three phrases:

  • “Corporations Aren’t People. Money Isn’t Speech.”
  • “Not to Be Used for Bribing Politicians.”
  • “The System Isn’t Broken, It’s Fixed.”

The bills will go into circulation in hopes that they will bring attention to the project’s cause.

The project is already fully funded, earning $32,000 after setting a goal of just $20,000.  The original goal was met in 4 days.  (!)  There are 19 days left in the campaign.  $20 contributions are rewarded with copies of the stamps.  For $100 contributors receive all 3 stamps and a signed card from Ben Cohen himself.

The project has set a goal to raise $50,000 by the end of the campaign in hopes of launching a second tour in 2013.  You can check for the most up-to-date list of cities here, but as of now the cities they’ll be visiting are as follows:
