On Shaker Heights Issue 95
November 8, 2016
GET BIG MONEY OUT OF POLITICS!
Tell Washington that:
· Money is not free speech! Big money (and secret money) in politics should be controlled.
· Corporations are not people entitled to Constitutional rights intended for human beings only.
VOTE YES if you are FED UP with money from wealthy donors, corporations, unions and Super PACs drowning out the voices of ordinary voters.
Join a national movement of over 600 communities and states working to pass a non-partisan Constitutional amendment that will limit the corrupting effect of huge political contributions and end unintended rights of corporate “personhood.”
REJECT “CITIZENS UNITED”!
