Do what's right on initiative vote


Doing what is right is a noble daily practice.

An activist court has given corporations personhood rights without going through the people. The U.S. Constitution prescribes how changes should be made… through the amendment process. If you believe that corporations should have the same rights as natural persons, then let’s follow the Constitution and do it correctly.

Until then and speaking as a democracy and not a corporatocracy, please vote “yes” on the proposition and add your voice to the others in hundreds of communities around the nation.

George Washington, in his farewell address in 1796, said “If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates.”

  Give this your best thought and do what is right.
