• Eliminate All Campaign Advertising
    Candidates for public office depend on large donations to pay for radio, TV & print ads to win elections. The more money they raise, the better their chances. In this way, issues they support or don't support are often influenced by wealthy corporations that—partly due to the Supreme Court's "Citizen's United" decision—can donate unlimited amounts of money to their campaigns. This amounts to a sort of legal political corruption. Signing this petition is a step toward returning our political process to a fair system as the authors of our constitution intended it to be. Also, political ads are often misleading and extremely annoying.

  • IMMIGRATION REFORM
    ANYONE who drives in American must be given a driver's license and have proof of insurance. That protects us all. Immigration status be damned! If a person is gainfully employed and producing for our country and paying his or her bills, they are supporting the economy of this country and must be allowed to be here and have the right to become citizens. There are no arguments against this, unless you are a racist or ignorant - which is both.

  • De-criminalize marijuana Nationally
    A recent informal poll indicated that 6 out of 10 of American voters think that marijuana should be legalized or decriminalized and taxed like that other drug, alcohol. At the very least, MEDICAL marijuana should be legalized federally so that patients and dispenseries and grow facilities can conduct their business without fear of prosecution.

  • Save Medicare from the heartless--and extend it to senior retirees abroad.
    Medicare does not cover millions of qualified seniors because they live outside the US---even though care would cost less. (Excellent health care in Mexico, for example, costs about 50% less.) So when chest pains strike, there are only two choices for many retired expatriates: (1) immediate treatment causing bankruptcy or (2) passive suicide. than forcing them to return to the US for treatment.

  • Help Protect Lakota Indian Children from Uranium Contamination
    Reservation life in North and South Dakota among the Lakota/Sioux Indian people is extremely difficult with 90% unemployment, life expectancy of age 48 and America's deepest poverty. Complicating life is the discovery of unchecked uranium and other heavy metal pollution in the water and air and on the land. The people have not been informed of this danger and no precautions have been taken to test wells or bring in safe water. Cancer rates are soaring.

  • List all MSG additives on labels
    MSG is a additive found in many processed foods. A large percentage of the population is allergic or sensitive to it. It aggitates numerous health conditions. Some reactions are severe. The companies who manufacturer MSG have created mulitple names for it. Leaving many unaware consumers ingesting it even though they shouldn't. "In 1993, FDA proposed adding the phrase '(contains glutamate)' to the common or usual names of certain protein hydrolysates that contain substantial amounts of glutamate. For example, if the proposal were adopted, hydrolyzed soy protein would have to be declared on food labels as 'hydrolyzed soy protein (contains glutamate).'" ... Unfortunately, for those with asthma, migraine, and atrial fibrillation, MSG as free glutamate remains a hidden food ingredient. This FDA labeling proposal was killed by a powerful food lobby. Please help me get this changed!
