Letter: Question that we weren’t asked during election

To the Editor:

Thank you for the fine coverage of the recent election. One thing I would like to have seen on the ballot is: “QUESTION: Should the United States Constitution be amended to establish that regulating political contributions and spending is not equivalent to limiting freedom of speech, by stating that only human beings – not corporations, unions or PACs – are entitled to constitutional rights?”

The people of Eau Claire County, Wis., had that to vote on. I’m sad that the people of DeKalb County did not.
