• Truth in Political Advertising
    People try to sell us things all day and night on television. Those same people HAVE to tell the truth about their product. They can't (by law) say that it does something that it doesn't do. What I want is for the Truth in Advertising Act to apply to political adds. If you are like me you are tired of propaganda in our electoral process. You are tired of adds about bills that are total fabrications with no basis in fact. And I am tired of polititions lying and NEVER being called on it.

  • Proposed 28th Amendment
    We do not have an elite that is above the law. American law should apply equally to all of it's citizens!!! For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform.... in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical.

  • Campaign Finance Reform
    Campaign finance reform would ensure that money will not "buy" an election. All candidates would operate from an equal playing field, with no one "owing" favors to any special interest group or corporation.

  • discontinue Corporations having a vote as citizens
    Our government is virtually (if not literally) run by the large corporations, out "elected" president having some bargaining power at best. A Republican supreme court passed this no doubt, at the behest of their backers. We need to take a stand and put our government into the hands of the people and this is but one small step back.

  • Stop the Prosecution and Persecution of Thomas Drake
    Why is Mr. Thomas Drake, one of America's heroes and true patriots, being prosecuted and persecuted by the Obama administration? I am very concerned that we have become--not turning into--a police state. Here is the New Yorker article regarding Charges Against the N.S.A.’s Thomas Drake at: http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2011/05/23/110523fa_fact_mayer?currentPage=all Something should be done about this. I realize that my lone voice is no more than a grain of sand on a large beach and can easily be considered insignificant and discounted by our politicians. But, nonetheless, this insignificant voice is shouting for a cause that affects every single voice and every single man, woman, and child--including our politicians--across this vast country of ours. If this shameful and unwarranted prosecution and persecution is allowed to proceed AND our public officials--our Dam of Freedom--whom we depend on to help safeguard our freedom and liberties remain timid and silent, then God Helps Us All! Tell our representatives and the Obama administration it's time to do the right thing and stop this prosecution of one of America's true and great patriots. A lone voice, Pierre Coupet

    Professional lobbyist are and have been a scourge on how the government works. It is because of the lobbyist that the government in Washington D.C. has become owned by the special interests. This petition is designed to correct this and bring the power back to the people; where the power should rest.

  • legalize marijuana
    every year at tax time we should be able to pay a grow tax fee per house hold that would permit us to grow our own marijiana so the federal goverment would have let say we pay 250.00 out of our taxes every year to grow our own. Then the money people use to buy it will now be put back the money into the economy. selling is still illigal.

  • Basic Knowledge Prerequisite
    This petition will force legislators and lawmakers to know what the basic civil rights of each individual are. This is a good idea because it will eliminate ignorant or uneducated candidates from the election process, leaving voters with intelligent and ethical politicians.
