• Stop Oil Market Speculation and Manipulation
    Oil prices are being driven by wealthy invesment speculators who have no connection to the oil industry other than making a profit off of the price moves in the oil markets. Require oil investors to have a business that is directly related to the disposition of the oil either in the production or the refining or the deliveryof it. Banks like Goldman Sacs have no business investing in oil markets

  • Evict Wall Street Insiders from the White House
    Timothy Geithner and Ben Bernanke aren't part of the solution to our nation's economic fix; as alumni and protectors of Wall Street, they are part of the problem. We need advisers such as Krugman and Galbraith to press for regulations with teeth and for effective investigations of fraud and price-fixing. President Obama: for real change, get rid of Geithner and Bernanke!

  • Save the California State Parks
    The State of California is proposing budget cuts that would include the closing of 70 state parks throughout the state of California. These closings would include popular destinations such as Limekiln in Big Sur, Jack London's Cottage in Jack London State Park, and the wildlands of Henry W. Coe State Park. These parks are fundamental to the education process of residents and visitors to the state of California. Please let the California Governor Jerry Brown and the California State Legislature know that you do not agree with these cuts and want California to find alternative ways of solving the budget crisis.

    Taxpayers that make $75,000 and over are not allowed to deduct student loan interest payments. This $75,000 range affects the middle class. Deleting the phaseout amount will help our economy; and allow students to payoff loans faster.

  • Let Georgia Residents Install Solar Panels: Overturn HOA bans
    Georgians have a right to choose their energy source, including solar. But many Georgia homeowners associations ban or heavily restrict the installation of solar panels. At a time when energy prices are increasing sharply and fossil fuel use is increasing the emissions of greenhouse gases and pollution, the bans and heavy restrictions on solar panels should be overturned by state legislation once and for all, matching progress in many neighboring states. Please feel free to forward this to others! Thank you.

  • Reinstate Bankruptcy Protection on Private Student Loans
    Student loans are well known by Americans as an excellent way to provide for those who would otherwise not be able to afford college. In 2008, the banking industry petitioned to remove all basic consumer protections for these private loans, and won. Student loans have since surpassed the National Credit Card Debt, and this occurred due to of the lack of basic consumer protections. The ability to apply for bankruptcy if there is a need is a basic right all other forms of loans currently possess. We are calling our Senate and House representatives to reinstate the basic protections on Private Student Loans that have been overlooked for much too long.

  • Undo Corporate Advantage
    Corporations were recently awarded person-hood, but one major difference between man and them is that they seldom die, giving them great institutional advantage over each generation that comes along. They outlast any foes and are able to monopolize on any weaknesses. They need to end just like humans do.

  • Modernize America's Public Education System
    Our nation's public school funding, structure, and methods are stuck in 19th Century economics. If we are to compete economically as a nation, we must convert to a science-focused system and curriculum NOW. This is eloquently elaborated by Dr. Michio Kaku in a 4 minute video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xke_ddc2C8s

  • 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.
