I’ve lost faith and trust in any candidate running for office. They [the candidates] aren’t fighting for me any more. They were bought and paid for by huge moneyed interests who write their own legislation and hand it to our elected representatives.
The nonpartisan Move To Amend Rock River Affiliate group is petitioning in Watertown from now through Nov. 24 to get a question on the ballot for the April 7, 2015, election. The group is collecting signatures at Veterans Memorial Park, Riverside Park, around town and door-to-door. They will also be outside the polls during the Nov. 4 election asking for signatures.
Move to Amend is beginning a petition campaign in the City of Watertown on September 26 to gather signatures to place the question of a U.S. Constitutional Amendment on the Watertown ballot April 7, 2015.
The Move to Amend amendment basically states:
1. Only human beings, not corporations, unions, non-profits, or other such organizations are entitled to personhood rights, and
2. Money is not speech.
The Milwaukee County Board decided to let the voters have a voice on the subject of money in politics by overriding County Executive Abele's veto.
In November 2014, the County will be voting on whether there should be a U.S. Constitutional Amendment stating that money is not speech and a corporation is not entitled to Constitutional Rights. A yes vote will mean you want to reverse the narrow 5:4 Citizens United Decision by the Supreme Court, not change the Constitution, as some want us to believe.
