ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's insights on the need for the U.S. Democratic Party to build a mandate for reform to avoid corporate-dominated policy-making and to regain credibility in the country. He relates the decision of the Supreme Court on the case of Citizens United which reflects the corruption in the political system. He suggests that high-dollar donors should give nothing to any group created by Citizens United while Americans must urge Democrats to embrace election reform.
