U.S. Congress: Citizens Petition and Pledge to Raise the Debt Ceiling and Prevent America from Defaulting on its Loans

     Government paralysis is threatening the economic welfare of all Americans, regardless of party affiliation. We, the citizens of the United States of America need to remind our representatives TODAY that they were hired to serve our best interests.

     Our government has become increasingly paralyzed due to ideological differences. We have reached a point where these differences are standing in the way of basic government functioning. The deadline for raising the debt ceiling in order to avoid defaulting on our loans is mere days away, yet it appears that members of our congress cannot work together to avoid this crisis that would cause increasing economic hardships for all Americans.

     We, citizens of the United States, regardless of party affiliation, demand that our elected officials, represent our interests by preventing our country from defaulting on its loans, which would cause needless harm to our economy for years to come. Further, we the people pledge to fire, through refusing to reelect, any member of the House of Representatives or Senate that, from either action or inaction, blocks or fails to vote for a bill to raise the debt ceiling thereby resulting in America defaulting on our loans.


We ask all American citizens to please sign this petition and pledge to help us avoid defaulting on our loans.


*   We at the Rationalist Society of America ask you to be true to your pledge as it is the only way to bring sanity back to our government. This petition and pledge will be sent to the House of Representatives and Senate on Thursday, October 17th. Please send the link to this petition to as many people possible over the next couple days and let’s see the power of a common cause!

Results will be posted on our site ( after any votes.
