Petition to Charles Schumer, Democratic National Committee

Tell Democratic Party leaders they must respect Hillary's legacy!

In a recent interview with the Washington Post, Democratic Senate Leader Chuck Schumer chided Hillary Clinton for the loss to Trump in last year’s presidential election: “When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things – Comey, Russia – you blame yourself”. Sen. Schumer’s comments are coded sexism at its worst, part of a disturbing trend of disrespect toward Hillary taking hold in the Democratic Party leadership. Hillary’s campaign inspired millions of women to stand up, take power, and believe in their own potential. Most of the Democratic rank-and-file still support her. Hillary's loss to someone as offensive as Trump proved that sexism is still alive and kicking. Instead of denouncing this injustice, Schumer wants Hillary to shut up, get lost, and blame herself for the discrimination and election interference that undermined her. As the highest-ranking leader of the Democratic Party in government, Sen. Schumer owes Hillary and the party more respect! Tearing down Hillary Clinton as a foundation for Democrats’ 2018 message supports and perpetuates sexism in the party and the nation and potentially undermines future campaigns of Democratic women. It offends the majority of Democrats who are still with her. Hillary did have an affirmative message, despite Schumer’s claims to the contrary. Most Democrats, women and men, still believe that we are “Stronger Together”. Schumer must reaffirm this message of unity by reversing his position on the reason for the Democrat’s loss. Sign this petition demanding that Schumer publicly acknowledge the historic importance of Hillary’s campaign and admit that un-examined sexism robbed her of victory.

Together Let's Change American Presidential History in 10 Days!

This may be the most important document you ever read in your lifetime. By signing it you may be able to change and avert a political catastrophe. Right now we are being manipulated and intimidated into voting for either of two candidates that over 60% of the country does not want. Removing all partisan analysis, most American voters are honest and caring people who want America to come together and follow an agenda that reflects commonality of purpose, that allows the center of America to prosper. The choices we have been given reflect a representation of moneyed, undemocratic power elites for whom protecting foreign and domestic power, revenue flow and keeping taxes and regulations low at the cost of public safety are the dominant motivators. They are shameless in presenting these views. Primarily most Americans want a President with a moral compass to lead our great nation. A person who children can look up to and believe in. Without sinking to the level of current campaigning lets just say the two lead candidates do not reflect the minimum standards that most American children would want in a sports team captain. Let's leave it at that. We all know why we dislike both of these candidates, the question is what can we do about it? The system, on the surface fair, most feel has incorrectly pushed two candidates forward that the majority of American voters would not want in the office- the process seems inexorable, but its not. The Republican Convention is a done deal. The Democratic Convention appears to be a freight train out of control. Here is the ONE crack these political ward bosses have left. Ostensibly Bernie Sanders has endorsed Clinton so he and his delegates will be "allowed" to attend the Convention. There, the same super delegates who were picked from the beginning, will nominate Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders beats Trump in most local and national polls. If he was elected he would get little or nothing done as both Branches of Congress would be gridlocked and forced to coalesce to get even the most simple things done. If you sign this petition you are sending a message to the Democratic Super Delegates that this is not only your wish, BUT YOU WANT CONTROL OF YOUR POLITICAL SYSTEM BACK AND YOU EXPECT MORAL LEADERSHIP SELECTIONS IN THE FUTURE. If a hundred thousand people sign this it will have no effect. If 14 million people sign this it only means that the Bernicrats thought it was a good thing. If 20 million people sign this and they sign it before the super delegates vote in Philadelphia it means that AMERICA IS MAD AND IF THEIR WILL IS IGNORED THERE WILL BE DIRE CONSEQUENCES. So if you are a queasy Democrat or a Republican of good faith, real moral standing and believe in the common welfare and thoughtful political leadership of a President who should have high moral character- SIGN THIS PETITION. Then contact the super delegates and your own political representatives and tell them to put pressure on the super delegates to nominate Bernie Sanders. We have a choice- allow the race to continue unchanged and shame us, or take this moment in history and make it one we will all be proud of sharing,  I know Sanders is not the majority's first choice, but as a messenger of the voice of the American people he is a demonstrated point. There WILL not be a second chance to stop this- if either side gets their leader you won't believe the disaster that ensues, and you know it! Sign it now and circulate it to your friends. The time for individual courage is fast upon us and if you reflect too long- that reflection may turn to a larger legacy of regret. We have only one chance remaining to reclaim America's moral direction- let's not waste it.

HELP A FATHER SEE HIS CHILDREN PLEASE.

My ex wife and I lost 4 children from 2003-2006. We later discovered that it was because of an incompetent cervix. The losses were traumatic on both of us. However, in 2006 my ex wife started accusing me of domestic violence charges that were not true as a means of coping. Twice I have faced the rest of my life in prison because of her accusations. There was never any proof against me in any of the cases just her words. In 2006, I was facing 52 years of prison and was coerced to take a plea. The same thing happened in 2013. What made the 2013 case even worse no due process was followed from arrest to conviction. I was arrested outside in a parking lot by the Marietta police. The officer told me that her story didn't make sense because he saw no signs of violence. When I asked him why he was putting handcuffs on me his exact words were, "I don't know, I have to go to my car and figure this out." Officer Goworek. No Miranda rights were read, I was handed a warrant 8 hours later inside Cobb county jail that stated I falsely imprisoned my wife by holding an apartment door shut and not permitting her to leave. That is a 10 year felony. Because of this accusation, I incurred two counts of cruelty to children second degree felony for a felony being committed in front of them. Those charges were 10 years for each child. That was 30 years worth of charges. They added an obstruction of a 911 call to the charges stating I took my wife's cell phone and prevented her from calling the police. The police never took a phone from me. I wrote several motions to ask for a probable cause hearing. Never got one. I was held for 120 days with no hearing. Finally, my wife was subpoenaed to testify against me at a probation violation hearing. Keep in mind that the Georgia law States that a spouse's testimony is "inadmissible in any criminal proceedings" She testified under fear and changed her story again. By this time, she had filed for divorce and was seeing her coworker who she is married to now for her 6th marriage.  She told the judge in the hearing that I assaulted her by choking her and that I drove down the highway with the whole family threatening to kill everyone including myself. The judge chose not to believe that part, but he verbally stated that he believed I choked her. Keep in mind that none of this was on the warrant for my arrest which was all basked on my wife's story to police. I was offered a plea deal that day for three years in prison. I turned it down. Days later, I was written two love letters by my wife giving me her new address and telling me she had been promoted on her job as if she did not just testify about me trying to kill her. I submitted several motions to the court with her love letters attached. They were all erased from the court record and I was sent to prison for violation of probation and the judge sentenced me that day to the balance of my probation for not taking the plea deal. I filed motions from prison and filed a habeas corpus. I was still denied the police report in my case which none of my lawyers could get either. The case was indicted twice in less than 90 days apart giving the indication that the indictments did not go through proper procedure. It was whatever the a.d.a. wanted to charge me with. I was finally told if I didn't take the plea deal of 10 years with 4 to serve in confinement, I would get 32 years in prison. After having the courts ignore all evidence, cancel court dates, ignore appeals, and public defenders curse me out, I felt like I had no choice but to take the plea. My argument here is that their abatement of due process is a form of coercion which are grounds for a reversal of judgment and a writ of restitution.  Since my release from prison, my divorce judge originally gave me normal visitation rights having full knowledge of every charge on record. I made numerous attempts to see my children in accordance with the final divorce decree. My ex-wife kept texting me to meet her in places then changing her mind at the last minute. I contacted the sheriff's department in Marietta and came with a police escort. She still refused to open the door. I was given a police number and was told by the officer that all I had to do was show the judge the number and she would be held in contempt. My ex-wife obtained a lawyer from legal aid and he convinced the senior judge to suspend my visitation rights using my plea date to give the judge the impression that a new event took place since the divorce. I was still incarcerated when I took the plea, but the petition reads like my ex-wife was assaulted on that day. This gave the appearance that the final divorce decree needed to be changed. This is deception and fraud. The senior judge went with it, ignored the fact that I came with a police escort to see my kids, and ordered that I would have to come to an agreement for supervised visitation. I went through an organization called Georgia Preferred Services which my ex wife chose. They denied me supervised visitation because I had on a word document that I was going to pray with my kids. Although I PRAYED with the executive director and her officer, she testified in court that my prayer was long and made her uncomfortable deeming me not a good fit to see my kids. The judge changed my child support to 1100/month after the hearing which was well above what iI brought home to further make it financially impossible to see my kids. I have not held my children since 12-9-2012. Ronald David Boykin Jr and Faith Destiny Boykin were 5 and 2.  When I last spoke to my son he said, "Daddy how come you haven't come to see me?" I said daddy lives kinda far and I don't have a car. His next words were, "Well daddy, can you walk?" If I didn't hear those words, I wouldn't bother anyone with this petition. I hold a master's degree from Princeton Theological Seminary, I graduated 4th in my class at Lincoln University, I was recently under consideration for the senior pastor position at former president Jimmy Carter's church. I have been railroaded by a biased court system that has ignored all evidence to vindictively prosecute me with a willful disregard for law. Now my children have suffered as an end result. Please sign this petition so that these unlawful practices can be brought to light. I cannot get a job that will pay me enough to pay 1100/month for child support, probation fees, and enough left to live. It is not that I am not qualified, but the false accusations have barred me from all forms of employment.

Keep America from keeping kids parents and families away from each other with deportation

My father got deported from America when I was 6 years old ( in 2005 )  for something he did way back in 1992. He lost his business, kids, family, house, cars, clothes everything they sent him to the Bahamas with nothing and made him sit in a cell before they took him there. They told him he couldn't come back until ten years. Since then my father would miss everything in his kids and families life because he couldn't come back to America. So then I got Cancer. When I had cancer they finally let my dad come to America to come see me, his other kids, and friends and family. After a while when I got better they told him he couldn't come anymore even after he waited the ten years they told him he had to wait. So now ever since then he has missed several events and me and my brothers and sisters life's, Graduations, first time getting a job, teaching us how to drive, birthdays, party's everything and just physically being there in are lives ya know. And I'm sick of it I'm sick and tired of not being able to see my dad here anymore. I'm tired of them keeping my father away from me when he doesn't even want to be away. So I made this petition for kids, parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, just all families with the same or a similar problem I am having today. I really miss my dad being in my life like crazy and the fact that I haven't really been with him since 2005 I can hardly remember a lot of the stuff we done. and he wants to be in my life more then I want him in it so I don't think its fair that he cant come to America to see his kids and his family when there's people out there that don't even care about there family or care about there kids and my dad is the one dad that would do anything to be in his kids lives. So anyone reading this I need your help to make this a real cause, I need you to help me get this message out to the world, out to everyone so they can help me with this problem I would really love and appreciate ever and anything you guys can do to help. Thannk you so much !
