I'm closing every petition that I have created at change.org People who have signed it just have not gotten enough of their friends to sign these petitions. However I still have a web page where you can send letters and demand the legislation that we want.
Go to http://www.democratz.org for actions to get a strong public option and other needed legislation by sending emails that people can send threatening boycotts of conservative funders.
To learn more about the Liberal Democratic Party of the United States please read our blog at http://blog.democratz.org
I WANT YOU TO GET EVERYONE THAT YOU CAN TO SIGN THIS PETITION. BECAUSE IF YOU DON'T, THEN THIS PETITION WILL NOT GET THE RESULTS WE WANT. WE NEED 100,000 PEOPLE TO SIGN THIS PETITION TO MAKE AN IMPRESSION ON OUR OPPOSITION.
After you sign this petition sign these too.
This petition appears active and will not expire until 2010.
I want to welcome the members of http://www.Change-Congress.org which appears another fine organization which wants to remove the link between large donors and control of the legislation process. I recommend that you visit their site.
Congress and the President must
enact S 703 single payer universal
health care and set up a new
prescription drug benefit in
Medicare Part B covering 80% of the
cost of all drugs with no extra
monthly premiums, no extra yearly
deductible, no means tests, no
coverage gaps, and remove the means
test for Medicare Part B and until
that happens, I refuse to buy ANYTHING

I have seen and spoke to a lot of well meaning Democrats wanting to make change in Washington and they issue petitions that do not include a boycott of the friends of those who would block progressive action and legislation. Such Democrats unnecessarily tie their left hand behind their backs. I urge people to consider boycotting the friends of those conservatives in congress in order to force them to sit up and take notice and capitulate to our demands. In our country money appears an important factor in getting action done. We need to go on a purchasing strike against the friends of regressives in order to force them to cooperate with us. It appears peaceful and legal in an atmosphere of legalized bribery in congress. We need to take back control over our purchases and how the profits get spent especially how they get used for legalized bribery in congress. We indirectly fund conservatives in congress through our purchases. We need to set conditions for our purchases through targeted boycotts.
If you don't like a particular TV program, you call their sponsors and tell them you will boycott them until the program either goes off the air or changes to your liking. This works similar with political parties, politicians and their sponsors (campaign contributors).
If you have a blog please post this on your blog. I want to get at least 100,000 people to sign these petitions, the first one which you can demand single payer health care and a fix to the Medicare prescription drug benefit.
Boycott this bank. Spread the word on other email lists and your private email lists. They provide those Republican backed Health Savings accounts and also a favorite of Karen Ignani's AHIP, the organization blocking single payer. I have found AHIPS achilles heel.
Contact this bank and tell them, you will not bank with them, either as a current customer or as a prospective customer until they get Karen Ignani of AHIP to Support S703 Single payer Health Care. Flood them with polite but firm emails. You can bcc to email@example.com
I found the following on AHIP's web site.
HSA Bank serves customers in every state and was one of the first financial institutions nationwide to offer health savings accounts. In 2006, HSA Bank was named to the Kiplinger's Personal Finance "The Best List" as the "best health savings account." HSA Bank combines convenience, service and savings with low account maintenance fees, high interest rates, investments, 24-hour account access online or through an automated telephone system and outstanding personal service.

CUT UP YOUR AMERICAN EXPRESS CARD. SEND IT TO SEN. MAX BAUCUS. TELL HIM AMERICAN EXPRESS GAVE YOU $50,000 FOR YOUR CAMPAIGNS, ENACT S703 SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE OR WE WILL NEVER USE AN AMERICAN EXPRESS CARD AGAIN. TELL YOUR FRIENDS TO DO THIS.
Update: Doctors and nurses, please get those who see you for medical treatment to sign this petition and also tell them not to do business with Republican contributor Rite Aid Pharmacies. If a person cannot stop buying medications from Rite Aid then at least tell them to not buy consumer items from Rite Aid Pharmacies. The person can still sign the petition.
Everyone: Since Senator Baucus still blocks any notion of enacting S 703, if you will, please in your personal comments indicate that you will also boycott some of his contributors General Electric, American Express, Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield. The main target remains Rite Aid Pharmacies. The petition letter does go to Senator Baucus too, so he will get the message.
May I ask you for a favor? Can you get 1 new person to sign this petition each week? I hope you can do this. If every person gets just 1 new person to sign this each week, we can double the amount of signers every week. Thank you for signing this petition.
I have included the email address for the Rite Aid Board of directors as a recipient of your email too.
Democratic Senator Max Baucus stands in the way to single payer universal health care. He refuses to allow single payer to get enacted into law. The following companies gave money to Max Baucus's campaigns.
Call these companies and tell the person, you get your CEO to get Max Baucus to get S 703 single payer unversal health care enacted into law and a fix to the prescription drug benefit as described above, and UNTIL then we refuse to buy your products and refuse to do business with you
