Renaming of the US Capitol Building to "Hall of Shame", sending a message to D.C.
This petition had 337 supporters
The foundation of the United States Government is not only the Constitution, but the power and will of We The People. Most elected officials have been infected with the idea that once you get elected, you can stop listening to, or fully representing that power or will. On the verge of a potential nuclear war, the time has now come to end special interests, congressional and executive infighting (regardless of party), and place that representative power back to where it rightfully and legally belongs. Restored within the American people.
This petition is not for a permanent change. It is a message to be sent to Congress as a test. Over half of this country wants an independent investigation of Russian influence and connections to the election. A percentage of Americans (large enough to confirm a supreme court justice WITHOUT changing the rules mid game, mind you) want Donald Trump's tax returns released. The message to Congress is this: Pass this temporary change until after the November 6, 2018 election. We The People will use this as an opportunity to measure the true level of representation of American citizens in Congress. Any politician who chooses to vote against this measure is surely not in the position for the American public, but instead their own special interests. This will force those representives to walk into a building with the title "Hall of Shame" for every meeting, speech, news conference, and most importantly VOTE on issues that effect us all, all the while reminding them of who they truly work for. The list of detractors regarding this measure will be used to rid ourselves of these "non-representives" in the coming election.
Please join me in a non-partisan forceful reminder of who these elected officials work for. The people. Not big businesses and donors. Not billionaires with a new "toy". No amount of money in the world can buy enough votes to influence the entire electorate. We are the ones in power. Choose to vote against us, and we will rid ourselves of you. In the meantime, they can work under the label of shame.
***Democracy, noun, "a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives. 1
a : government by the people; especially : rule of the majority
b : a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections". If we no longer hold the power, and our elected officials no longer represent us, our democracy is dead.
