Petition to U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, President Donald Trump
Legalize Lyme Disease
Lyme disease has reached epidemic proportions. It is the fastest growing infectious bacterial disease in America. Generally contracted through a tick bite, new evidence shows it is also contractable via mosquito, spider, or fly bite , from mother to child in the womb , or potentially through unprotected sex . The CDC admits that it does not know how many people have Lyme disease. Estimates vary between 300,000 and 1.5 Million new cases diagnosed per year . These figures do not include tens of thousands of undiagnosed or misdiagnosed cases. 25% of all Lyme cases are children. When Lyme disease is not treated early it can be debilitating, even fatal. The spiral-shaped bacteria (Borrelia) bore their way through every tissue, organ, or bone, causing damage wherever they go. The bacteria knowingly avoid treatment areas in the body and by changing their shape, mimic non-threatening cells. They create intelligent biofilms to protect themselves from antibiotics and their host's natural immune response. Studies now show that 1 in 5 cases may go on to become chronic due to Borrelia "persisters" . Unfortunately, the CDC-approved test available for early detection fails approximately 50% of the time . And due to abysmal funding for research, effective treatments are experimental and often long-lasting. The CDC's illegal preferential treatment of out-of-date and inaccurate Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) Lyme Treatment Guidelines  support a government narrative that chronic Lyme does not exist. Thusly, insurance companies are not required to cover treatment costs and patients are left to pay for long-lasting treatment out of pocket. Lyme Literate Medical Doctors (LLMDs) who practice life-saving medicine for Lyme patients are forced to operate outside of the insurance industry, for risk of being shut down. Such little information and training is available to physicians across the country, patients are left to suffer for years before they even receive a diagnosis . By then, many have been misdiagnosed with any of the 300+ diseases that Lyme mimics . They have lost their jobs and are on disability. Some (including children and teens) are heavily affected by the neuropsychological effects of the disease and succumb to suicide . Others have died simply due to ignorance of doctors . This cannot continue. The CDC and IDSA have failed to control Lyme disease. As sufferers, care-takers, friends, family, and co-workers of those who are suffering, we urgently request from the President and all members of Congress: 1. Legislation Expanding The Definition Of Lyme Disease To Cover Chronic Lyme And Co-infections 2. Legislation Protecting Doctors Who Treat Chronic Lyme And Co-infections From Insurance Industry-driven Investigation And Shut-down 3. Heavily Increased Funding For Research Into Chronic Lyme Disease And Co-infections 4. Greatly Improved Testing With High Accuracy Rates (As Seen With Ebola And Other Infectious Diseases) 5. Education Of Doctors And The Public Regarding Symptoms And All Treatment Options -- This petition was originally featured on the We The People petition site. Thank you for signing and sharing with friends, coworkers, spiritual leaders, family members, loved ones, and strangers. It is time to Legalize Lyme disease, including chronic stage and co-infections! -- Sign to add your voice to establish proper legislation and funding of this global epidemic.

Petition to President of the United States
Put Donald Trump's face on Mount Rushmore
Donald J. Trump is the personification of the American dream. He is a true patriot and successful businessman. Every day, he offers ordinary Americans hope to make America greater than ever before. In the political field, he has been doing things that have never been done before. He has single handedly reshaped American politics forever and political analysts will be studying Trump's campaign and presidency many years from now. It is our wish that Mr. Trump's face be put on Mount Rushmore.

Make President Donald Trump ban the Furry Fandom in the US
Furries are people that dress up as anthropomorphic animals and roleplay as them. They have sexual encounters with their fursuits and grope kids while wearing them. They are very toxic to our society and must be stopped!

Stop Russian Cyber War on Our Country
The subversive Russian activities, notably the cyber-attacks taken against our country, significantly distress those of us signing below. What further elevates our concerns is our federal government’s lack of action in protecting our country against these and future attacks. LTG H.R. McMaster’s recent emphatic statements echo are position: “Russia employs sophisticated strategies deliberately designed to achieve objectives and still fall below the target state’s threshold for a military response. Tactics include infiltrating social media, spreading propaganda, weaponizing information, and using other forms of subversion and espionage…. We cannot be passive, and hope that others will defend our freedom.” Unfortunately, our President has not mobilized the country, inaction that is in stark contrast to the intense bi-partisan response after the attacks on September 11, 2001. Where the response to 9-11 unified this country then, the Russian cyber-attacks divide us now. Though American lives are not immediately at risk, our state and local election systems are. Our intelligence agencies have found that Russians “obtained and maintained access to multiple U.S. state and local election boards” and that numerous voter rolls have been accessed. We are also aware that our power grids, including conventional and nuclear power plants, may be compromised. In addition, our President is far more interested in attacking our Justice Department, FBI, intelligence agencies, and prior administration than he is in criticizing Russia and its leaders. These attacks are damaging our democratic institutions in ways that may not be totally apparent to us for years to come. We are grateful for the strong, but very belated sanctions taken against Russia, but we have grave concerns that these sanctions, though necessary, are insufficient to ward off future cyber-attacks. In our opinion, what is needed is more effective presidential leadership and engagement to forestall further Russian interference. CALL FOR ACTION: In the absence of said leadership, we call on you, our Senators, to give us assurance that Congress will urge stronger protections against external and internal threats. Specifically, we ask that you: 1. Urge the Senate to press President Trump to take stronger action. 2. Encourage your Senate colleagues to censure the President for dereliction of duty should he neglect or refuse to act. 3. Encourage the Senate to enact legislation to protect upcoming elections and our national infrastructure against future Russian cyber-attacks by mobilizing key federal agencies, supporting state governments, and assuring the integrity of social media including Facebook and Twitter. Recommendations to safeguard against foreign meddling in the 2018 primary season made by the Senate Intelligence Committee on 20 March 2018 represent a good start, but much more aggressive legislation is critical to protect our election process. 4. Advocate for our democracy by urging your Senate colleagues to speak out, visibly and concretely assuring that Mueller’s investigation into the Russian cyber-attacks will continue unimpeded until completion. To this end, support passage of the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act.

While he is being investigated, President Trump must not seat a Supreme Court justice
The United States has a blatantly pro-Russian President who is being investigated for collusion with Russia during the election that put him in office. Because his nominee may be called upon to rule in cases connected to this matter, President Trump must not be allowed a SCOTUS pick until the issue of possible collusion is legally and completely resolved. We, the undersigned, ask the U.S. Senate to postpone advice and consent of any Trump judicial nominee until such time as this has been achieved.
