Petition to Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders Campaign IMMEDIATELY Address Systemic Democratic Primary Election Fraud
Open Letter to Bernie Sander's Campaign from Supporters: We, as your supporters/volunteers/donors and advocates for the People's movement are DEEPLY concerned about what appears to be systemic election rigging within the Democratic primary and the failure of the Sanders' campaign to address problems as they have revealed themselves. State by state, we have witnessed serious issues with caucus rigging (video evidence emerging showing Clinton staff miscounting votes/allowing Clinton voters to go into caucuses unregistered, misinforming caucus participants of rules resulting in invalidating Sanders votes). The violations were so severe in Iowa that the editorial board of the newspaper that endorsed Hillary Clinton for the Presidency, the Des Moines Register called for an independent audit and full investigation to determine what went wrong. In Nevada, we have video of Clinton supporters being allowed to vote in the caucus unregistered and miscounting vote. The concerns about manipulations by the Clinton campaign in Nevada resulted in Nurses United (the Nurses' union that endorsed Sen Sanders) to request independent polling monitors be brought in to oversee elections in remaining primary states. In addition, we have seen a consistent trend of exit polling not matching election outcomes in Arizona, Massachusetts, Missouri, Iowa and Illinois indicating wins for Senator Sanders in these states. Additionally, exit polls in other states indicate much closer outcomes than reported results. In Massachusetts, we witnessed unadjusted exit polls indicating a double digit win for Bernie Sanders and hand counted precincts in Massachusetts going to Senator Sanders by 17% over Hillary Clinton. In Arizona, exit polls conducted by the Daily Courier indicated Sanders winning by 62% over Clinton’s 37% yet current results are indicating an inexplicable double digit win for Clinton. Exit polling has been consistently correct in predicting Republican primary outcomes from the same outlets conducting the Democratic polling. This is a major red flag. We also have video evidence that Bill Clinton broke the law by campaigning INSIDE Massachusetts polling places and shutting down polling stations for several hours as he canvased these precincts. Despite this being against state law, the severe disruption in voting that occurred, and a petition of over 100,000 people demanding that the state take legal action against Clinton for these violations, nothing was done. This emboldened Bill Clinton to repeat the same behavior in precincts in Illinois, and Hillary Clinton was seen campaigning at a precinct in North Carolina during voting on that state's primary day. Voters felt enormously disrespected that the Clinton's interfered with our voting process and upset the Sanders campaign did not hold them to account for illegally disrupting our voting process. Additionally, there is a serious concern about purged voter rolls with voters in every primary state thus far reporting incidents where individuals were either removed from the rolls or did not have their registration update changes in status that would have allowed them to participate in the 2016 Democratic primary. Florida and Arizona was the most egregious in voters reporting removal from the rolls with many citizens being denied the vote entirely or only allowed to vote on provisional ballots. Additionally, in Arizona we witnessed mass suppression of the vote as the state provided only sixty polling places for participation in contrast to the 200 that were available for the 2012 uncontested Democratic primary election. Voters reported waiting in lines for up to six hours. The mainstream news media predicted a victory for Clinton with available exit polling data indicating a Sanders win and thousands of voters still waiting in line to cast a vote. This reeks of wag the dog politics, and we have zero faith that the outcome in Arizona is any way indicative of the actual results of that election. Additionally, we are finding that vote by mail and absentee ballot registration is consistently favoring Hillary Clinton THREE to ONE and this is occurring EVEN in states where Sen Sanders is winning in double digit blow out margins over Clinton. This is a short list of the issues and problems that have been reported in the Democratic primary thus far. Please refer to this blog for sources, videos, documentation, and video evidence compiled by state. The claims made in this petition are documented on this site. https://electionfraud2016.wordpress.com/ As supporters of this movement, we are troubled by the failure of the campaign to address these issues as they have arisen. We are puzzled why hand recounts of sample precincts were not requested in states where exit polls and election outcomes did not match. The machines we vote on are subject to tampering and remote hacking and election results have been shown to change by simple calibration of these machines. We are disturbed that the campaign failed to follow up with recounts in Missouri when exit polls showed a clear Sanders win in this state, and election precinct totals showed statistically improbable changes to favor Clinton in larger voting areas such as St Louis. If the campaign did not want the voters to incur the cost for a full recount in this state, it would have been prudent to request hand recounts of ballots in precincts that presented red flags. Our concern in Missouri, and indeed all the primary states, is not to pick up one or two extra delegates, but reveal what we believe could be mass election fraud. Given the amount of evidence, it has come to the point of irresponsibility by the campaign to continue to ignore this issue. Volunteers and supporters have given literally hundreds of thousands of man hours and millions of dollars in donations to drive this campaign to success. We have a right to expect the campaign will employ every possibly means of safeguarding our vote. Therefore, we request the campaign: Fully contest the election results in the state of Arizona. The amount of voter suppression and problems in this state demand a full revote. File for hand counts in states where exit poll results did not match election outcomes where it is legally allowed. If the campaign does not want to pay or recount entire states, we implore the campaign to request counts in states that presented red flags in reporting statistically improbable changes that favored Hillary Clinton. (St Louis in Missouri, Chicago in Illinois, etc). Immediately pursue any redress available in Massachusetts to the full extent of the law Conduct exit polling in future primary states and immediately request sample hand counts of precincts if election outcomes do not match polling results to document for any possible fraud and challenge results wherein such fraud is documented. Immediately respond to any future illegal behavior from the Clinton campaign (Bill Clinton illegally canvassing polls, video evidence of caucus rigging from Clinton campaign) and reports of mass voter purging or vote suppression by pursuing any/all legal avenues to provide redress. It is the campaign's duty to ensure that they utilize every avenue available to protect our vote and ensure that our movement to elect a People's representative to the Presidency isn't thwarted by illicit or illegal tactics from any entity. URGENT UPDATE: After the Arizona debacle with reports of thousands of Sanders supporters being purged from the voter rolls, voters in upcoming primary states started double checking their registration status. We are getting reports from voters in Wisconsin, New York, California, Washington, and other upcoming states and some have had their party affiliation changed from Democratic to another status or found they are no longer on the rolls. If you are voting in an upcoming primary or caucus state, DOUBLE CHECK your voter registration status and bring documentation to the polls of your eligibility. If you are purged, also contact the Sanders campaign. The Sanders campaign should make available an immediate hotline for reporters to report this issue AND issue a statement to warn voters to check their registration status. UPDATE 2: As the campaign now continues to ignore the signatures of over 13,000 people, we have reports of ballot stuffing and irregularities in Wyoming. In Laramie County alone, Sanders had 689 votes to Clinton's 111 votes at the caucus however Clinton ended up winning 620 votes were added in absentee surrogate ballots. We implore the campaign to get representatives on the ground to examine the ballots to determine if these were legitimately cast votes. It is IMPERATIVE that the campaign address this issue as officials in Lancaster County in Pennsylvania have ordered 300,000 absentee ballots for the upcoming Democratic primary election. Absentee ballots in primary elections for this county in PA typically run about 3,000! Just printing this grotesquely excessive amount should be a HUGE red flag. ADDRESS immediately: http://lancasteronline.com/news/local/officials-lancaster-county-voters-will-get-absentee-ballots-this-week/article_910ff458-fc33-11e5-b804-671601f80af5.html "More than 2,900 ballot requests have been received so far, including a few hundred already sent overseas to comply with a federal law.That far outpaces the 1,922 and 1,176 requests seen in the 2012 and 2014 primaries." Update 3: The New York State Democratic Primary election was a blatant exercise in voter suppression and fraud. A very SMALL sampling of issues that occurred in New York: In Brooklyn, 126,000 voters were purged from the registration rolls (dropped or party affiliation changed from Democrat to different party), a fourteen percent drop in that one city alone. Registration purging was reported across the state. Polling locations in Brooklyn reported broken machines, lack of full compliment of machines, and one polling location opened hours late after it was failed to be staffed. CNN exit polling showed a four percent difference between Clinton and Sanders for the final results. Clinton is now currently holding a sixteen point lead with the majority of precincts now reporting. CBS exit polls showed a five point difference between the two candidates. CNN exit poll had a margin of error of 2.6 percent. Exit polls are a reliable mean of ascertaining election outcomes and are used as a means globally to detect for suspicious results. New York is just the latest in a long series of states where reported results do not match the reported results (MA, IL, AZ, MI). A hand count is necessary to ensure the machine tally provided accurate results. Sanders must step up and demand that a hand count sample audit of precincts be conducted in New York state. Issues were so severe that the New York City comptroller called for a full audit of the Election Board due to 'hundreds of thousands of reported problems'. Unfortunately, there is a serious conflict of interest with Scott Stringer (NYC comptroller) leading an audit; he is the top delegate for Hillary Clinton on the New York State primary ballot. See our Election Fraud Blog for all the New York updates at:https://electionfraud2016.wordpress.com/ for MUCH more complete information. Update 4: MAJOR evidence of fraud and vote manipulation in the state of California. Please view the evidence as compiled here for specifics and details of individual examples AND pending legal actions for redress. California was Ground Zero for the Fraud - the silence, Senator Sanders (from the campaign) in the wake of the level of evidence and issues occurring in California is DEAFENING. One does NOT remain silent when constituents of the Democratic party are blatantly having their will subverted. Fear of having allegations of sore loser or sour grapes thrown by a corporate media apparently colluding to propagate the fraud is not a valid excuse not to act. In fact, it sends the message that all that is required to perpetuate a successful crime against the citizenry is to intimidate, bully, shame and cower the victims into silence. We can NOT be complicit in theft of the People's will out of fear that those who seek to subvert it may call us a name. https://electionfraud2016.wordpress.com/category/california/ In solidarity The People.
Petition to Bernie Sanders
Watch Cowspiracy, Forks over Knives, and Earthlings.
Animal agriculture creates three problems for our society: 1. Destroys the environment 2. Causes deaths from heart disease, diabetes, cancer, among others. 3. Creates a system of unnecessary violence towards animals However, because of powerful lobbying by the meat industry, 63% of food subsidies currently go to meat and dairy while only less than 1% goes to fruits and vegetables. Bernie Sanders should join the fight for equality to all, regardless of species. Bernie can easily address the three issues by simply taking a stand against corrupt meat and dairy subsidies. We know if Bernie commits to watching these three documentaries, he will change his mind and have the courage to stand up to the corrupt agricultural corporations. Bernie, would you watch these documentaries and take a stand against corrupt agricultural subsidies? Cowspiracy (the environment) Forks over Knives (health) Earthlings: (ethics) Sources: http://www.economist.com/news/united-states/21643191-crop-prices-fall-farmers-grow-subsidies-instead-milking-taxpayers http://www.pcrm.org/health/reports/agriculture-and-health-policies-intro http://www.pcrm.org/health/reports/agriculture-and-health-policies-unhealthful-foods
Petition to Bernie Sanders
Encourage Bernie Sanders to Run For President as an Independent or Third Party Candidate
Encourage Senator Bernie Sanders to run as an Independent or Third Party Candidate in the 2016 Presidential Election, if he is not the Democratic nominee. Several closed primaries in key states have disenfranchised voters and excluded registered Independents from voting for Bernie. Early registration deadlines, Arizona & Puerto Rico eliminating over half of their polling stations, the overall rigged delegate/superdelegate system and the corporate media's blatant misinformation, have all suppressed Senator Sanders' campaign from fairly winning the nomination as a Democrat. There is no doubt, if given a choice on the ballot between Senator Sanders, Secretary Clinton and Donald Trump, Bernie would win the 2016 Presidential Election! Let's get as many signatures as we can and have this petition ready before the Democratic National Convention. Please sign the petition & share this with your friends and family now!
Petition to Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders: PLEASE Watch Earthlings and Cowspiracy!
Senator Sanders:You have SO many animal lovers and environmentalists behind you and rooting for your presidential victory. We are Feeling The Bern, not just in the U.S., but all over the WORLD. We want you to win, but we also want a COMPASSIONATE and consistent president who puts his heart where is mouth is.You once said that "When we reject science, we become the laughingstock of the world." Science has proved time and time again that one of the biggest contributors to pollution and carbon emissions is animal agriculture. We would like for you to look further into why animal agriculture is so terrible for the environment. Watch Earthlings and Cowspiracy. Do your own research. The future of our natural world and the human race depends upon it. Even the United Nations has been urging citizens to stop eating meat to save the planet. THEIR report has stated: "With 60% of our daily intake of nutrients coming from animal products, experts have warned that pollution will continue to rise unless we stop our over consumption of meat." And with all of the wonderful meat and dairy alternatives we have today (many of them also Organic/GMO-Free), it is just unnecessary to continue eating animal products.Let's look at the facts... Livestock produces 40% MORE Greenhouse Gas emissions than GLOBAL transportation. Raising animals for food (including land used for grazing and growing feed crops) now uses a staggering 45% of the Earth's land mass. Nearly half of all water used in the United States goes to raising animals for food. It takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of beef, while it takes only 25 gallons to produce a pound of wheat. The 16 pounds of grain that is used to produce 1 pound of animal flesh could be used to feed 10 people per day, if the grain was used to feed the people directly. There are children and families starving in other countries because they are forced to sell their grain to the US for meat production. The 760 MILLION tons of grain used to feed animals for meat production could feed 11 billion people and end World Hunger 14 times over. Producing and consuming animal products is simply not sustainable.Again, don't take our word for it! You can find these and many more facts about the devastating effects the animal agriculture industries have on the planet in these documentaries, as well as online and in many books. Not only is abstaining from animal products great for your body, the environment and the human race...It is also detrimental to the innocent animals, themselves. You believe that "All animals must be protected from all forms of cruelty, suffering and abuse, whether in captivity or in the wild." Are you forgetting that Chickens, Pigs, Fish, Cows, Turkeys, etc. are ALSO animals? Do they not deserve to be protected from cruelty, suffering and abuse? There is no "humane" way to kill an animal who does not want to die. A person who eats a Vegan diet saves approximately 1,100 gallons of water, 45 pounds of grain, 30 square feet of forested land, 20 pounds of CO2 equivalent and 1 animal's life....EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.You have also stated that Americans like bacon... You might remember that Americans also used to "like" owning slaves until President Lincoln came along and showed them how wrong it was. Many Germans "liked" the idea of sending Jewish peoples to concentration camps. The comparison of animal slaves and human slaves is never meant as an insult. It isn't right to enslave people and it isn't right to enslave animals. We are all the same. We all SHARE this planet. We all deserve to live free and happy. We are activists, just like you! Discrimination is discrimination and slavery is slavery, no matter the species. And many of us were so disappointed to see you turn away animal rights activists at your rally when they asked to make a statement. We are fighting for justice, just like you did. PLEASE help us do this. For the planet, for people, for the animals. "As the nation at last confronts global warming, it is no time for denial, greed, cynicism or pessimism."You have been fighting tirelessly, for many years, for the rights of women, people of color, those in poverty, the LGBT community and even for "companion animals". And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being so progressive. But, now we must ask you to extend your compassion to the other innocent beings who are trapped and dying every day for the sake of greed and taste buds. They have no one (in power) to speak out for them, either. And their farming, deaths and consumption are DESTROYING our planet. PLEASE open your mind and open your heart. If you truly care about the global climate crisis and your fellow man, PLEASE take the time to watch these documentaries. We thank you SO much for your time and we wish you the best of luck in your campaign!
Petition to Bernie Sanders
Draft Bernie for a PEOPLE'S party!
The two major parties in the U.S. are not able to offer representative choices that a majority of Americans can embrace. Roughly only half of the eligible voters went to the polls in the 2016 presidential election. Many of them voted against a candidate they disliked rather than for a candidate who inspired them. During his Democratic primary campaign, Senator Bernie Sanders energized millions, especially the young, to mobilize and get involved in politics. We believe that a political revolution requires a party that represents working people. We call on Bernie Sanders and others to organize a new political party that is funded by the people, not special interests, and to continue the political revolution to make government work for all. For more information go to https://draftbernie.org/ The time is NOW!
Petition to Iowa State House, Iowa State Senate, Iowa Governor
Single Payer Healthcare for Iowa
Yes, the Affordable Care Act was an important improvement. and step toward universal health care. Because of the ACA, more than 17 million Americans have gained health coverage. Millions of low-income Americans have coverage through expanded eligibility for Medicaid that currently exists in 31 states. Young adults can stay on their parents' health insurance until they're 26. Further, all Americans can benefit from increased protections against lifetime coverage limits and exclusion from coverage because of pre-existing conditions. Nevertheless, the U.S. is failing its citizens when it comes to healthcare. Even with the ACA, many Americans cannot afford the copayment, deductibles, payroll deductions and denials. Many people skip their prescription medications and avoid going to the doctor because they do not have the money to cover the deductibles. Even further, of the 1.4 million Americans who file for medical bankruptcy each year, 75% have health insurance. The ACA increased the number of insured Americans. Unfortunately, according to the Congressional Budget Office, by 2023, 31 million people will still lack coverage. But as stated above having insurance does not solve all the problems because having insurance does not guarantee access to need care or protection from financial ruin due to health care costs. These people are considered "underinsured." these individuals cannot afford their deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance and thus do not go to the doctor or seek medical attention until their condition is too severe to ignore. Personally, just one of my mediations, Procysbi, costs over $72,000 for a 30-day supply. This was a 2,400% increase compared to the original drug (Cystagon) (1). Procysbi, is the primary medication that treats the rare disease I have cystinosis. The medication has the same ingredient as Cystagon (cysteamine bitartrate), which is the immediate-release form. The only difference between Procysib and Cystagon is that Procysbi has an enteric coating over the active ingredient which makes it a delayed release drug. Procysbi was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2013. Unfortunately, because of the high cost of this medicine (Procysbi), insurance companies fight not to cover the drug, and I am left without the drug sometimes for weeks. A recent survey of 50 insurers and pharmacy benefit managers by J.P. Morgan which found that medicines for the rare disease are increasingly subject to scrutiny and possible restrictions on use, as mine are (2). The American people need a health care system that works for all. We need a system where all people can get the care they need to maintain and improve their health when they need it regardless of age, color, creed, economic status, ethnic identity, familial status, gender identity/expression, genetic information, marital status, national origin, physical disability, race, religion, sex, and sexual orientation. That system to solve all of these problems is single payer health care and because the federal government seems unable to act, the State of Iowa needs to take a stand and protect their people. The State of Iowa must create a state administered single-payer health care program. The program must cover the entire continuum of health care, from inpatient to outpatient care; preventive to emergency care; primary care to specialty care, including long-term and palliative care; vision, hearing and oral health care; mental health and substance abuse services; as well as prescription medications, medical equipment, supplies, diagnostics and treatments. 1.

Petition to We need a viral group of 20 million registered voters.
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.
Petition to MSNBC
Fire Joy Reid for repeated inflammatory comments.
We feel that Joy Reid creates division with her tweets and broadcasts. We feel that she's no longer reporting news, but rather using your organization as a springboard to launch an unwarrented attack on Bernie Sanders and his over 14,000,000 voters. In a climate that is already tense, we feel her repeated comments threaten the delicate balance we're trying to form left of center to eventually take on republicans in 2018 and beyond. There's simply no room for such condescending rhetoric in our living rooms anymore.
