Since he didn't use a multicolor font this time, I'll help.

Initiative 735 will make Washington the 18th state to ask Congress to overturn Citizens United.

Quote:
New Section. Sec. 3. POLICY & PROMOTION
The voters of the State of Washington urge immediate action by the current and future Washington State congressional delegations to propose a joint resolution for an amendment to The Constitution of the United States clarifying that:
1. The rights listed and acknowledged in The Constitution of the United States are the rights of individual human beings only.
2. The judiciary shall not construe the spending of money to be free speech under the First Amendment of The Constitution of the United States. Federal, state, and local governments shall be fully empowered to regulate political contributions and expenditures to ensure that no person or artificial legal entity gains undue influence over government and the political process.
3. All political contributions and expenditures shall be disclosed promptly and in a manner accessible to voters prior to elections.
4. This act does not limit the people’s rights to freedom of speech, freedom of the press, free exercise of religion, or freedom of association.
New Section. Sec. 4. RECOMMENDATION TO CONGRESS
In accordance with the U.S. Constitution, the voters of the State of Washington urge the Washington state congressional delegation, and the U.S. Congress generally, to include an amendment ratification method which will best ensure that the people are heard and represented during the ratification process.

CA has a proposition for that, too. I forget what number, though.

The quote is above. It's there and neither of your examples directly applies.

They want to stop the humanoids from speaking out against them. Sure, Hillary wanted to silence a movie about her in an election year which is bad, but rich people are spending money !!!! zomg, we cant have that if its not fair !

Did you know that you can dislike things about one candidate, like the way another candidate does it, and yet not have borderline hallucinatory religious experiences on the internet while doing so?
