  • Pres. Obama do not allow Repubilicans to take America Hostage
    Republicans refuse to raise the debt ceiling unless Obama makes large spending cuts, while opposing any tax increase whatsoever. If we hit the debt ceiling, the government will have to stop paying the spending currently financed by borrowing. Will it stop sending out Social Security checks? Stop paying doctors and hospitals that treat Medicare patients, or the contractors supplying fuel and munitions to our military, or the interest on the national debt? The President must stand up to this "taking America hostage;” he must defend the Constitution and not give control of government to a party with a majority only in the House. outcome about. In effect, they will have ripped up the Constitution and given control over America’s government to a party that only controls one house of Congress, but claims to be willing to bring down the economy unless it gets what it wants.

  • Tax Fracking Now
    Almost all gas-producing states impose a severance tax of some kind on natural gas drilling, because once the resource is gone, it's gone--and hydrofracturing can leave behind serious damage just as the coal industry did. A "frack tax" will make sure that Pennsylvania has the resources to respond to these challenges.

  • Require labeling of GMO food products
    Currently, the USA has no requirement to require Monstanto and their ilk to tell us when they're using genetically modified (GMO) agricultural products in things we eat or things that animals that we eat, eat. The EU and most civilized countries have this requirement, and further, don't allow imports of GMO agricultural products. The US consumer has the right to know that what they're eating may have been genetically modified. Let us make our own minds up on this: GMOs are an ongoing experiment on the population of our country and a heart-wrenching manifestation of corporate power run amok.

  • Eliminate Corporate Campaign Funding
    As long as big business finances (buys) elections, politicians will put their interests above the people's. Case in point; 80% of Americans think the Citizens United decision was a huge mistake, yet over a year later, no bill has been introduced to stop unlimited and anonymous corporate donations. Our government has been privatized, and until this is changed, we will not see the meaningful change that this country needs and that it is capable of.

    This is actually a test of our new e-delivery system but I need about 15-20 signers. You should leave some suggested names in the comments field. Last I heard, she is a little short on boy names.

  • Replace Obama with a Democrat or kiss my vote goodbye!
    President Obama has spurned his mandate and cemented the worst of the Bush legacy, filling his administration with corporate insiders, making backroom deals with industry special interests, and readily conceding every battle to the far right. Right-wing, corporatist "Democrats" like Mr. Obama will continue to take our vote for granted and ignore America’s needs UNLESS we make it crystal clear that we WILL abandon them in 2012 (a Bush-Lite Democrat who lulls the country to sleep while savaging the middle class and curtailing our civil liberties is NOT the “lesser” of two evils).
