Ballot Question for Watertown: Vote Yes

March 27, 2015

Do you agree that...  Only human beings have constitutional rights, and that we the people should be able to regulate political spending?

CITY OF WATERTOWN MOVE TO AMEND CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT REFERENDUM

Shall the City of Watertown adopt the following resolution:

Be it Resolved, that We the People of the City of Watertown, Wisconsin, call for reclaiming democracy from the expansion of the rights of artificial legal entities and the corrupting influence of unregulated political spending. We stand with the communities across the country and Move to Amend supporting an amendment to the United States Constitution stating:

1) Only human beings are endowed with constitutional rights – not corporations, unions, non-profits or similar associations; and

2) Money is not speech, and therefore regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that we hereby instruct our state and federal representatives to enact resolutions and legislation to advance this effort.
