2016 Presidental Election
Petition to Bob Corker, Lamar Alexander
TN SENATORS: Investigate Election Interference and the President's Possible Ties To Russia
The Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election was an attack on our nation to influence the election in its favor. The issues which demand immediate answers are: 1. Why did Donald J. Trump publicly call for the Russian Federation to hack DNC websites during the Presidential campaign? 2. Did Donald J. Trump have direct knowledge that the Russian FSB would work in concert with Julian Assange's Wikileaks to hack DNC websites to desciminate confidential information and false news to influence the 2016 election in his favor? 3. What motivated the Russian Federation to attempt tipping the balance of the 2016 election in favor of Donald J. Trump? To what advantage is a Donald J. Trump victory for the Russian Federation? 4. Did Donald J. Trump make any agreements with the Russian Federal government in exchange for clandestine influence on the election? 5. Why was Donald J. Trump so resistant to considering that the Russian Federal government was the hacking source, going so far as calling into question the professional reputation of multiple US intelligence agencies and accusing them of behaving like Nazis? 6. Why has Donald J. Trump gone to such great lengths to personally defend Vladimir Putin's reputation, deflecting his characterization as a killer by stating that the United States has behaved in a similar manner as a matter of policy. 7. Does Donald J. Trump have undisclosed business ties in Russia that could influence his decisions as President of the United States which may not put the best interests of the United States first? We, the undersigned Tennesseans, are appalled that neither the Senate or House of Representatives of the United States have shown the necessary alarm or immediate action to investigate this attack on our endowed right to freely elect our leaders without foreign interference, and possible conflicts of interest that the President of the United States may have in connection with it. We call on Senators Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker to set aside partisanship, act on behalf of the interests of all Americans, and take the lead in the United States Senate to initiate a full, fair, and open investigation of the aforementioned unanswered questions to ensure that: 1. the Russian Federation, or any other country, does not interfere in future US elections, 2. the Russian Federation, or any other country, does not exert undue influence on the Office of the President of the United States, 3. the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, publicly releases his tax returns to assure the American people that his performance as President is not compromised by business conflicts of interest with Russia or any other country, and 4. an investigation be carried out to determine any other potential evidence of prior interaction or collusion between Donald J. Trump and the Russian Federal government to interfere in the 2016 Presidential Election. We citizens of the Volunteer State make this call upon our elected Senate officials to set an example of leadership by bringing clarity to, and resolution of, this dire transgression upon our United States.
Petition to Donald Trump
Invert US flag on 4th of July to protest Trump (on facebook or house)
Our democracy is in danger and in distress. Displaying an inverted US flag is recognized as a distress signal. I'll hang my flag upside-down (or post one as my facebook pic) on 4th of July to protest and request Trump to resign.
Petition to Members of Congress and the Government Accountability Office
Stop taxpayer funding of Trump's weekends in Florida
I am an individual who worked hard all his life to afford the luxury of taking my family on vacations and weekends away from home. I would like to know why we taxpayers must now fund the extravagant costs of Trump's weekends in Florida week after week. For the most part these do not seem to be working weekends but more like golf outings. I ask that if Trump feels the need to keep following this pattern that he be made to foot the bill personally rather than at taxpayer expense. There are far more pressing and worthwhile needs requiring tax funding than this. Please ask that your Senators and Representatives act to stop the hard working American public from continued funding of this travel.
Petition to Mayor of Anaheim - Tom Tait
Make Anaheim, CA a Sanctuary City.
With the new president, we have seen an increase in racist rhetoric, which is, unfortunately, nothing new. We have a xenophobic history as well. This means more and more doors are closing on the most vulnerable of people sometimes quite literally. They get turned down and turned in to ICE agents for their inability to prove citizenship. But if these people who are law-abiding citizens get charged just for living in a country they did not have the privilege to be born in then there is more harm done to America than them. They tend to not report crimes in fear of being incarcerated themselves and they do not travel as often as natural born citizens which lowers the movement of economic circulation. If deported, America would lose the one thing that keeps it rich both culturally and economically. Undocumented citizens pay $10.6 billion dollars in taxes to fund programs that they do not get to reap the benefits of through all of America. They join the low-skill, low-wage workforce that not only increases productivity but also creates on average 7 other jobs. Since it is usually poor conditions the desirability for these jobs are minimal and they are the ones who take them. With this said Anaheim should state their status as a sanctuary city

A day of No Trump
For the last two years nearly everyday we've heard the name of Donald Trump, the country needs a break and a breath, so I am asking the news media to not talk, tweet or write about President Trump or anyone in his administration or the White House for one day, President's Day
