Petition for Congressional Bipartisanship

    2. Petition by

      Michael Bonham

      Tigard, OR

I'm a proud son of a veteran, a senior in college, and an American, but I’m worried about the future of our country.

Over the past few years we have seen a disturbing and growing divide in our political system. Our elected leaders have become irresponsibly uncooperative and as a result, frustrating stalemates and filibusters have become the new status quo. This must stop.

Congress needs to hear this. They need to know that we are tired of hearing no, can't, won't, and later. They need to know that we want to start hearing yes, we, can, together and now.

This is a petition to get Washington working together. Now more than ever we need Congress to work as a team and to find solutions for some of the biggest challenges this country has ever faced including the looming fiscal cliff, mounting national debt, a struggling middle class, immigration, tax reform, bloody overseas conflicts, jobs and much much more. The stakes couldn't be higher.

Please sign this petition and tell Congress that we want them to start working together not as Democrats or Republicans, but as Americans. Congress needs to hear our voice and know that we want compromise and bipartisanship to replace our now ugly and embattled political system.

If our leaders continue to be more concerned about their party affiliation than what is best for our country then we can be confident in the future downfall of this great nation.

Our only hope in preserving the quickly dying American dream is to work together to find the solutions to the great challenges of our day. These issues affect everyone and must be solved by everyone for everyone. I believe that we all have a hand in this great democracy and if we all lend a hand for the betterment of this country, we will overcome these challenges and ensure our future prosperity.

Please take this opportunity to sign this petition and to remind our elected leaders of the responsibility that rests upon their shoulders, that we’re behind them and that we’re going to do what ever it takes to get this country back on track together as a nation not as Democrats or Republicans, but as patriotic Americans. Thank you.
