Summary of the Problem,  Governor Gavin Newsom in addition to Governor Jerry Brown have declared California a Sanctuary State, importing illegal immigrants to replace the people of California, and give them California's tax payer funded goods and services in order to alter the voting demographics against Americans, and in favor of Democrats. Recently, in 2019 within months of taking office, Governor Gavin Newsom pulled troops off the southern border when President Trump attempted to stop illegal immigrant caravans from entering the United States which threaten all of the United States not just California, and continues to allow immigrants to flow into California threw the Southern border. Because Democrat Governor Jerry Brown and his Lieutenant Governor, now Governor Gavin Newsom declared California a Sanctuary State.  These policies have rapidly increased California prison population and homeless encampments with illegal immigrants, and impacted public schools, and prohibit State Law Enforcement to cooperate with Federal Law Enforcement, ie ICE who's job is to deport illegal immigrant criminal offenders. Californians did not vote for Sanctuary Cities, or for California to feud with President Trump to bring in illegal immigrants to replace Californian citizens.  Therefore, here is a petition to Recall Governor Gavin Newsom.  If you agree please sign the Petition.

Petition to Brian Kemp, Georgia State Senate, Georgia State House

NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION (RETURNING CITIZENS' RIGHT TO VOTE)

We believe in “No Taxation Without Representation.” Over 266,000 law-abiding Georgia citizens who are on parole or probation are denied representation by being denied the right to vote. They go to work, pay their taxes, and are contributing members of society, and yet they are denied a voice in the growth and direction of their own communities. They can't vote because of the Reconstruction Era creation of a new Georgia Constitution in 1877, designed to restrict the newly received rights of slaves. (Article II, Section I, Paragraph III.) https://ballotpedia.org/Article_II,_Georgia_Constitution The power of the vote is the power of self-determination. Casting a vote gives citizens a deciding voice in what we believe to be best for ourselves, our families, and our communities. To deny access to government and the distribution of the power that exercises authority over us, while at the same time imposing scores of taxes upon us, is fundamentally unjust and unamerican and needs to be corrected immediately. Representation in exchange for taxation was one of the founding principles of the United States of America. It embodies our national resistance to tyranny. Yet in 2020, centuries after the U.S. gained freedom, justice, and democracy, Georgia has more people on parole and probation than any other state, and remains one of 30 states that does not restore voting rights upon release from prison if under supervision. Such denial makes a mockery of the American democratic experience. Join us in eradicating this State sponsored second class citizenship by calling upon our Georgia state legislature to bring back dignity to hundreds of thousands of our fellow citizens (neighbors, friends and family members) and fully restore their right to vote. Our goal is to reach over 266,000 supporters. Sign this petition today!

Petition to Fulton County Board Of Elections, DeKalb Board of Elections, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger

Provide Clear Mail-In Voting Guidelines for Georgia Voters

My name is Katherine, and I’m a voter in Atlanta, GA. This past November election was the 3rd presidential election that I’ve voted in. Even though all of the votes in the November election have been counted, there is still more work to be done for the runoff election. As you all know, this has been the first time in a long time that Georgia has been a battleground state. Furthermore, with the runoff election set to take place in January, that means that Georgia’s voter turnout will be instrumental in shaping the country’s political climate for the next several years. It has never been more important than it is now that every vote is accounted for. The situation with Georgia’s mail-in ballots a couple of weeks ago was disorganized, to say the least. I feel that this is the case largely because the guidelines for submitting absentee ballots are very unclear. See details from my own personal experience below.” “I have family members that are immuno-suppressed and I work with public school students, so I knew mail-in voting was the safest choice for me. I filled out my ballot and took it to the ballot box near the Waffle House in Decatur Square. I moved to Decatur—which is a part of Atlanta that’s in DeKalb County—earlier this year from another part of Atlanta in Fulton County. After carefully preparing my ballot and mailing it in ample time to be counted for the election, I was not made aware that if it is dropped into a box outside of the county that the vote is designated for, it may not get forwarded to the appropriate county. I spent hours calling voter protection offices in Fulton County, Dekalb County, and one for the state of Georgia. They couldn’t even agree on whether it was safer to put the ballot in the regular post as opposed to the official dropbox. My Fulton ballot is now in DeKalb’s possession. And I’ve been told that the Fulton ballot can only get home to be counted if DeKalb decides to do so, meaning that my ballot is at risk of not being counted. I’ve been on the line with both counties and the state voter suppression folks.” Georgia voters deserve to have their voices and votes heard—especially in this election as it comes down to the wire. When election officials take the time to count and verify every ballot, that’s a sign that our democracy is working as it should. My goal is to create simple, clear instructions about how to properly submit an absentee ballot. It should be very easy for the average voter to follow the instructions and fully expect their ballot to be counted. I am not entirely sure how this should be done, but voter suppression via inaccessible mail-in voting is clearly an issue and needs to be resolved. This will be necessary for future elections as well. No matter what we look like, how much money we make, who we love, or how we worship, every one of us should feel confident that our votes count and our voices are heard. My ancestors died for me to be able to vote. We didn’t have answers on election night this year. This is going to be a long process and we must be patient. At the end of the day, the only number that counts is the one certified by the state, and my state owes it to voters to make sure every single ballot is counted. We must be prepared to be patient and wait for every vote to be counted. Sign this petition if you believe that election officials should post clear, simple instructions on how to cast an absentee ballot.

Petition to John Joyce, Mike Kelly, Scott Perry, Guy Reschenthaler, Lloyd Smucker

People should take a civics test before voting for government officials.

I am a young citizen of the United States; during this last election i had a better understanding of the government and became fascinated with politics. I knew most people were voting for one side or another with no true understanding of why they were voting for them. Many U.S. citizens do not know the basic history of our nation or our constitution. I feel people should be tested on their knowledge of government before they get registered to vote.  So many people of our society take things for granted including our government. Our political parties are so different from what they once were and they are still changing to this day. I also believe that our school system is failing to teach kids the non-biased way to learn/teach about history and our government. If we can change the way kids are taught in schools about our nations government then they will be better prepared for voting in the future. Even voters today that already were registered should be tested on their knowledge of the US. When John Adams and Thomas Jefferson ran for president in 1796 they both clearly stated what they believed was the best options for our country.  Today politicians will tell people what they want to hear but don't often live up to what they promised. If we test the people of the US and better educate them then they are less likely to vote for someone out of emotions instead of knowledge.
