• Right to Vote Act
    It would divide the City of Irvine(CA) into 4 council Districts and a citywide Mayoral district. There are no representatives from some parts of the city and dividing the city would allow more equal representation. It would also make it more affordable to run, since you would only have to win the majority of your district. Right now only the rich can afford to run.

  • Examine Oaths and Pledges to get Party Funding by the Congressional Ethics Committee
    95% of Republican Congressmen have signed an oath not to raise taxes, which is a virtual prerequisite to get Republican National Committe funding, and have also had to sign, in many cases, the right-wing purity oath for same. It is our view that, not only does this impair the excercise of the integrity of personal independent judgement in the exercise of their duties as congressmen, it can be in violation of their sworn oath to defend and protect the Constitution. We move that this and all oaths that hamper individual judgement to be exercised in the performance of public office be examined by the Congressional Ethics Committees in hearings to determine whether this be a breach of ethics that conflicts with the exercise of their sworn duties as Congressmen.

  • Justice For Harrisburg
    Harrisburg is in fiscal collapse, Monies were borrowed for projects that had no hope of repaying the debt. Public officials and well paid professionals told the world that the bonds -- now almost $300 million on one project alone -- were self-liquidating, when they had to know that was impossible. To date, no one has been held to account. We demand accountability, fairness and justice. We ask the U.S. Justice Department to fully investigate these dealings, charge those who ignored the law and report to the world what really happened.

  • Stop Gov. Walker's Redistricting Power Grab
    Instead of doing their job and listening to their constituents, Scott Walker’s GOP lemmings are changing the game and rigging the rules so they can’t be held accountable for their own actions. They are doing this by drawing undemocratic, hyper-partisan districts that kick many Democratic legislators out of their own districts! Stop the power grab. Raise your voice. Sign our petition for a fair and balanced approach to redistricting.

    Petition sponsored by: The Beer Party South Carolina Chapter South Carolina has been under Republican rule far too long. Now the "Tea Party" is influencing Governor Nikki Haley and Senator Jim DeMint. If this continues, they will most certainly destroy our beautiful state. Lt. Governor (Ken Ard) is charged with 107 ethics violations. SC Superintendent (Mick Zais) has refused to obtain federal grants for our children's education. Our Recall Petition will be presented alongside Reps. James Smith, Bakari Sellers & Boyd Brown's proposed Recall Bill to the SC House and SC Senate. Let our elected officials know that their constituents support this bill for passage.

  • Department of Defense assault on FOIA
    Undersigned citizens request that our representatives not allow the Department of Defense to water-down the Freedom of Information Act by putting a provision into the Defense Authorization Act of 2012 that would prevent the public from accessing information having to do with Emergency Response and safety concerns effecting communities adjacent to Federal Facilities. This new legislation is the Department of Defense response to a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Milner v. Navy. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Milner as the Navy could not use the exemption put forward and that the community had a right to know the risk to their community. The public has a right to know about explosives, harmful chemicals and emergency response plans for military bases. Section 1044 would allow the Department of Defense to withhold records essential for Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) requirements. The Department of Defense is not exempt from these regulations. By signing this petition you are letting your representatives know that you want an open transparent government that allows the public access to information concerning their safety and well being.

  • Drug Test Congress
    The "War on Drugs" in it's 34 year history has not only failed, but failed spectacularly. While we test factory workers and store clerks and such, public officials are exempt. Who can cause more harm than the people who spend trillions of dollars of taxpayer money, and send our children off to war? ALL public officials should be subject to drug testing, the more important you are, the more often you get tested. Test Congress, Supreme Court and President & staff at least daily. No more GUI (Governing Under the Influence!) If we're going to have a drug ware, lets at least do it sensibly.

  • Abolish the Electoral College
    It is time that each individual vote actually counted. One person, one vote - a true democracy. The electoral college stands in the way of this idea. It was designed to protect the rich & powerful interests in government.
