  • 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

  • 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.

  • Public Financing for All Major Election Campaigns!
    Our democracy is dysfunctional. Wealthy interests underwrite the campaigns of their favorite candidates, then these elected officials become their servants rather than servants of the common good. How else could a few Americans have oppressed the rest of us with credit default swaps, health insurers able to rescind sick patients, and economic policy tilted towards the few wealthiest citizens? A single legislative initiative will restore a vital democratic process in America. We need a constitutional amendment making all House, Senate, and Presidential campaigns entirely publicly financed.

  • Congressional Reform Act of 2011
    Take a look at this and tell me it won't fix Congress. It will! One thing that is abundantly clear is that Washington DC, and Congress in particular, is very messed up. This legislation will create a substantially different atmosphere for our elected ones, and they had better be there to SERVE US AND NOT THEMSELVES!
