  • No New Nukes; No Relicensing Old Nukes!
    In light of the unpredictable and deadly releases of radioactivity that are still coming from Fukushima, it's time that the US changed course about nuclear power. Congress is about to vote on a $36 Billion subsidy to the nuclear industry, and they need to know that we want a clean and sustainable energy future for our children and grandchildren. The US is producing highly radioactive nuclear waste to the tune of 105,000 metric tons per year, and there's nowhere to put it. Stop the madness. Stop nuclear power.

  • Stop cuts to HIV/AIDS services
    AIDS service organizations have endured over a decade of flat funding and 3 years of dramatic budget cuts, stretching their resources over an ever-growing population in need of HIV prevention education. The current PA House Republican budget proposal for 2011-2012 purposes an additional 25.4% cut in the AIDS Programs.

  • Stop Scott Walker's attack on same-sex couples' rights.
    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is trying to undo a law that gives same-sex couples a few basic protections like visiting each other in the hospital, taking leave to care for a sick partner, and making end-of-life decisions. This isn't Walker's first anti-gay move. Before he was governor, he vetoed a county resolution to give benefits to county employees' same-sex partners, and he voted for a 2006 ban on same-sex marriage or substantially similar arrangements. Walker claims to oppose the new law on constitutional grounds, saying it violates the 2006 ban. But make no mistake: this isn't a principled stand like President Obama's decision not to defend DOMA – it's a political move by a man who's been undermining equality for years, including on the campaign trail. The new law doesn't violate the ban because it's not remotely similar to marriage; it doesn't even extend basic protections like joint tax filing or adoption. Walker needs to know the whole country is paying attention. Tell Governor Walker: Stop attacking same-sex couples!

  • Stop the Keystone XL Pipeline Stop Importing Tar Sands Oil
    The oil sands are now the largest industrial project in the world. Extracted from Canadian forests, this process is causing devastation the size of Belgium, with up to 7,000 liters of water wasted to produce one barrel of oil. Such toxic waste water is stored in tailing ponds which can be seen from space. America is the main consumer of tar sands oil, imported through the Keystone pipelines.

  • 100% Voter-Owned Democracy
    $$$ ruling political campaigns did not begin with Citizens United; it only exacerbated the evil. Our experiment in democracy will only survive if we demand 100% publicly funded elections. Plenty of local/regional models to follow. I'm with the MoveOn supporters who feel MoveOn should stop "putting out fires" and focus on reframing the debate: launch big bold campaign to capture the public imagination...100% publicly financed elections, for example...hire people who know how to message...otherwise we'll forever be the obedient serfs to giant corporations and their Madison Avenue minions.

  • Impeach Clarence Thomas
    My petition concerns removing Clarence Thomas from the Supreme Court for high crimes and misdemeanors, just one example being his failure to recuse himself in cases involving issues for which his wife is a lobbyist. People should sign this petition because the current makeup of the Court clearly has an activist right-wing bias. We need fairer judges who can recognize that corporations should not have the same rights as do people and the there is no basis in the Constitution for the "Citizens United" decision. We need an organization (or two) that can reach a national audience to lead this effort.

  • 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.

  • Gone too far: Gov. Walker wants to ban same-sex visitation
    Scott Walker continues his assault on the rights of Wisconsinites. Now he's targeting the rights of same-sex couples to have the most basic and human of experiences - the ability to visit a loved one in the hospital. Let him know that hatred is not okay.

  • Put single payer on the table!
    Our huge deficit is forcing terrible cuts across the country. Yet we are not addressing the root cause - out of control health care costs. Rather than bankrupt America, it is time to put for-profit health care out of its misery and give us the only rational way of controlling health care costs and cover all Americans.
