This petition asks that you assist in combating a major threat to that promise: the Private Industrial Complex. When former President Dwight Einsenhower warned that we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military–industrial complex, he was forewarning American citizenry about the looming dangers that are now a reality. A failed economy, increasing national debt, decreased civility and a crumbling democracy are products of what President Eisenhower established as the disastrous rise of misplaced power. This petition calls on Congress to acknowledge that the conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry has eroded free market enterprise and American democracy. This petition reminds Congress of THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE to abolish or alter its constitution to ensure the continuing happiness and general welfare of the people. To this end, we are request that Congress recognize that the weight of this Private Industrial and Military combination continues to endanger our liberties and democratic processes. By doing so, we ask that Congress comply with OUR PEACEFUL METHODS AND GOALS (refer to the twelve point agenda) SO THAT SECURITY AND LIBERTY MAY PROSPER TOGETHER. As a first step in this process, we are petitioning United States Park Service as well as Congress to allow free and fair trade fairs, markets festivals & retreats operate within the National Park Service in support of this cause. The purpose of these markets are to stimulate the local economy by connecting visitors to local merchants, vendors, craftsmen and other local business. By doing so, we look to encourage local industry by creating accessible marketplaces to buy, sell and trade American made products, goods and services.

Make America Great Again: Fulfill The Dream
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness...That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness..." The People's Assembly is cooperative community of local, independent business owners working together to create local and regional sustainability through cooperative community enterprise. We believe in the promise of our country, that every citizen has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This petition asks that you assist in combating a major threat to our country's promise: Corporate Capitalism / Industrial-Military Complex. What former President Dwight Einsenhower warned our country about has become the prime reason behind a failed economy, increasing national debt, decreased civility and a failing democracy. This petition calls on Congress to acknowledge this as problem #1, and to begin building peaceful solutions to return the control of the American economy back into the hands of the American people. We the people, do hereby exercise our rights to assemble to make a prudent and justified decision to alter our government in order to grow safe and sustainable communities, such that American communities have ready access to: A. Safe, comfortable, secure and sustainable ways of living and housing; B. Healthy, nutritious and organic foods; C. A network of technical and professional expertise; D. Hands-on skill building and workshops in desired industry; E. Safe, reliable and viable community markets to exchange goods and services; F. Community associations engaged in community development; G. Community wellness programming focusing on living well; and H. Positive and productive community relationships fostering community wealth and well-being. ... Such has been the patient sufferance of these United States by the institutions which has rule over it, and such is now the necessity to alter these former Systems of Government in support of bolstering the growth of a new government owned and operated by the People. In full faith of the Constitution of the United States of America, we kindly request of government cease and desist tyrannical activities, such as the follow:; The open violation of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution as evidenced by National Security Agency's spying on American citizens (including the sponsor of this petition); The mass incarceration of poor, minority and otherwise marginalized American citizens; The Threat to Life of unarmed, innocent and otherwise targeted and oppressed black, brown and marginalized peoples. We, The American People, will enact our powers as the empowering agency of our government to suspend the powers of our President of the United States of America. Until these conditions are met, we The People, will host a series of community events geared towards creating actionable items to achieving The American Dream.
