• 1-day General Strike for Campaign Finance Reform
    Whereas our corporate-owned Congress will not concede power to the American electorate, be it resolved that citizen organizations in favor of genuine democracy (e.g., Contract for the American Dream signatories, all unions public and private) will coordinate and pledge to stage 1-day general strikes, monthly, until Congress enacts constitutional amendments reversing Citizens United v. FEC and enacting public financing for campaigns.

  • Wall Street Responsibility
    I believe that incredible damage was done to this country by the irresonsibility that was exhibited by Wall Street prior, during and after the crash of 2008 which nearly took down our entire country's economy. There has not been one person charged, not one grand jury convened and no justice for the many who have suffered the aftershocks of Wall Street Greed.

    We elect people to go into state and federal government to represent us and our interests. They don't! Too many of our elected representatives act in the interest of corporate America, whose self interest is international, We are finally holding our elected officials accountable. We are watching. It's them-- the corporations or us-- the people. Stand up for the American people or we will act at the polls! We have had enough!

    As a result of heavy industry lobbying, the Obama administration decided not to allow the EPA to strengthen air quality standards. Lobbyists claimed that higher air quality standards would hurt the economy. The administration agreed to retain the weaker Bush administration standards.

  • AT&T: Stop Giving Our Money to Rick Perry
    AT&T gave $462,739 to Rick Perry since 2000. Refuse to support Rick Perry's anti-choice, anti-GLBT & anti-environmental stances, to name but a few of the many issues progressive voters care about and Rick Perry fights against. Switch phone companies AND demand AT&T stop subsidizing radical politicians like Perry.

It is imperative that progressive Attorney Generals like George Jepsen raise their voices at this key time.
