CITIZEN ADVISORY PETITION
NOT a formal Citizen Initiative
To the San Juan County Council:
We The People, residents of San Juan County, Washington, hereby request a Resolution, to urge the Washington State Legislature and the United States Congress to amend the United States Constitution to clearly state that:
(1) Corporations are not human beings, and only human beings are endowed with Constitutional rights.
(2) Contributions and expenditures for political purposes are not Constitutionally-protected speech. Therefore regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting political speech.
(3) Congress and the States shall have the power to regulate contributions and expenditures for campaigns and ballot measures, and to require public disclosure of the sources of such contributions and expenditures.
We ask for the enactment of a Resolution by which the San Juan County Council shall call upon the Washington Legislature and the U.S. Congress to amend the Constitution with provisions as outlined above.
