Petition to President of the United States, US House of Representatives
Let People Vote Out Presidents By Majority Vote
America is a democracy, correct? For the people, by the people, right? All Americans get to vote once every four years for the President of the United States. Well, kinda - sorta in a round about way. Why however, can't Americans vote him out again if he's not fulfilling the people's will? If he makes laws after law destroying our country? Why should we be stuck with a leader who doesn't represent us? The solution is simple. Allow in cases of mass protest or other extremely low approval ratings for there to be a way for us to call a people's vote. To pull out our "Trump Card". It would be a vote held where every American Adult gets to vote either: * YES - Keep the President. * NO - Have him resign and conduct a new vote. You can either make it majority wins. Or make it like 60% NO and he's out. It's simple. It's easy. It's fair. It's a way for the people of America to say to their highest leader: "You're Fired!" Yes, it may take a while to get it passed into law and amend the constitution to allow it, but it's one of the major oversights of the American System. The people should have a Trump Card. If the people wish to veto a presidency they should have the legal right to do so if this is supposedly a democracy. Why do we have to protest and protest and tweet and tweet and NOTHING gets done. I may not know the exact steps to get it done, but I know it can be done and it will be done! This single change would make politicians accountable to the people and would assure that in cases where there are no checks and balances the people would still always hold the final *Trump Card*. This is their right to vote; their right to Veto him out of office and force a resignation, essentially firing him for not doing his duties! I feel powerless in the face of this madness since such a veto law does not exist. I know I'm not alone. Please help us change it together. Thank you. Sincerely, One Immigrant and the rest of the People of the United States of America Petition By: Empress HayaH (@ OneSpirit77) I'm only the one Hyping & Typing it, the #TrumpCard belongs to all of us together. Consider sharing it with only two other people and having them do the same! :) Ps: Republicans, don't be afraid to sign this petition since this "Trump Card" protects you too. Politics can change faster than our profile avatars, so let's protect our interests and Democracy. See I was even nice enough and named it after him!

Protect and Preserve Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
As a result of the recent election, the time to preserve vital progress in our nation has come. President-elect Donald Trump’s anticipated immigration plans pose a significant threat to undocumented immigrants nationwide. Undocumented high school graduates wishing to go on to college to further their education, wanting nothing more than to contribute to their communities and to the United States, face a harsh reality after graduating high school. DACA presented hope for a future for many undocumented students across the country. Young children and young adults with aspirations of becoming future doctors, teachers, lawyers, and countless other career paths were given an opportunity to pursue their dreams when Obama announced the DACA program. Donald Trump plans to terminate this, effectively ending all young undocumented students' hopes of obtaining driver’s licenses, work permits, and a college education and putting them at an increased risk for deportation. What is DACA?“Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a kind of administrative relief from deportation. The purpose of DACA is to protect eligible immigrant youth who came to the United States when they were children from deportation. DACA gives young undocumented immigrants: 1) protection from deportation, and 2) a work permit. The program expires after two years, subject to renewal. PLEASE NOTE: DACA does not grant a path to permanent residency or citizenship. The DREAM Act, which would lead to permanent residency, has NOT passed.” http://undocu.berkeley.edu/legal-support-overview/what-is-daca/ “On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. They are also eligible for work authorization. Deferred action is a use of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period of time. Deferred action does not provide lawful status.” https://www.uscis.gov/humanitarian/consideration-deferred-action-childhood-arrivals-daca DACA Eligibility RequirementsYou may request DACA if you: 1. Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012; 2. Came to the United States before reaching your 16th birthday; 3. Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time; 4. Were physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012, and at the time of making your request for consideration of deferred action with USCIS; 5. Had no lawful status on June 15, 2012; 6. Are currently in school, have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, have obtained a general education development (GED) certificate, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States; and 7. Have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor,or three or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety. DACA is not amnesty, nor a direct path to citizenship. DACA allows eligible immigrants to obtain a driver’s license, obtain a work permit, and stay in the country to work toward a path to citizenship without great risk of deportation. Thanks to DACA, these immigrants can share their experiences and talent while developing their skills and education as they work to establish themselves as U.S. Citizens. Pew Research Center estimates there are 11.1 undocumented immigrants in the country while the Department of Homeland Security estimates there are 11.4 undocumented immigrants in the United States as January of 2012—the number only continues to increase. These immigrants are our friends, neighbors, classmates, coworkers, and students. President Obama’s announcement of DACA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RXSlMu5EDI Obstacles Faced by Immigrants · “Most immigration lawyers charge between $5,000 to $7,500 to accompany a client through the green card process.” (http://abcnews.go.com/Business/story?id=87996&page=1 · “Some cases can cost closer to $15,000 before adding on application fees and any potential family members.” (http://abcnews.go.com/Business/story?id=87996&page=1 · “Applicants can spend years marked by a feeling of lost opportunity and helplessness as they wait for the process to conclude.” (http://abcnews.go.com/Business/story?id=87996&page=1 · Many colleges do not accept DACA students · Out of state tuition for many DACA college students if they can find a college that accepts them · FAFSA cannot be utilized by undocumented students and many scholarships cannot be awarded to undocumented students, putting them at a major disadvantage when it comes to the college application process. · Constant association and comparison to terrorists and criminals—including racial profiling. While terrorists and immigrants with malicious intent do get into the country, this is a very small proportion and must not be overgeneralized to the population as a whole. Immigrants, legal or undocumented, tragically face a growing hatred that has been inspired by negative framing of immigrants, use of misleading information, and the strategy of using them as scapegoats. · Immigration raids in their communities · Being forcibly taken or separated from their families. Children are often separated from their parents because of the deportation process. Without DACA:• According to the Migration Policy Institute, there are an estimated 1,932,000 DACA eligible immigrants in the U.S. If Donald Trump carries through with his plans to end DACA, these almost 2 million immigrants will be unable to obtain driver’s licenses and work permits, will not be able to work toward their educational dreams, and will be at great risk for deportation • We will be ending the work, progress, and achievements of young immigrants. All of their hard-work and progress will essentially be destroyed • According to the American Psychological Association, there are one million children under the age of 18 who are undocumented and 4.4 million under the age of 30. Those who currently are in the DACA program or are eligible for DACA, will be at major risk for deportation if DACA is ended. • We will be ending the educational paths of future doctors, businessmen and women, skilled trade workers, teachers, and more • We will be tearing apart and ruining families who only wish to work toward becoming U.S. citizens Please pledge your support to prevent the termination of this vital program and show Donald Trump we do not want to see these young, hardworking, patriotic immigrants separated from their families and forced out of our country. Let us show President-elect Donald Trump that these young students want nothing more to contribute to our country by protecting the program that allows them to work toward their ultimate goal of becoming U.S. citizens. Please remember that DACA is just one program that is in place to help immigrants assimilate into our nation. With Donald Trump’s election, this is only one facet of the immigration progress that is at risk. There is much more that needs to be done. This is just one step. Please share this with friends, family, and coworkers, and remember that we must all come together as Americans or watch our great nation continue to grow divided and crumble before our eyes.

Petition to Donald j. Trump
President Trump Must Support Russia Cyber-War Investigations
Dear President Trump: We ask that you, as commander in chief, condemn Russia’s cyber-warfare against the 2016 election for what it was: an invasion of America’s democracy. Our democracy is the bedrock of citizens’ constitutionally guaranteed freedoms. Should our democracy become compromised, our very way of life would be at risk. Russia’s aggressions are targeting not just one election. They are tactics in Vladimir Putin’s long-term strategy to subvert American democracy itself by dissolving public faith that our government is prepared to protect our dearest freedoms. We are extremely concerned that you have failed to publicly support investigations into Russia’s transgressions by the FBI and the Congress. We find it unfortunate that you have even labeled Russia’s cyber-warfare as “fake news”. Unless the United States fully understands the nature and scope of Russia’s actions, and takes measures to prevent their recurrence, Russia is likely to attack again in the future.

Petition to President Donald Trump
Stop President Trump and U.S. from Withdrawing from COP21 Paris Agreement
In December 2015, more than 190 countries adopted the Paris Agreement, the most ambitious climate change agreement in history. In order for the agreement to take effect and enter into force, at least 55 countries representing at least 55 percent of global emissions needed to formally join the Agreement. On Setember 3, 2016, the United States and China deposited with United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon their respective instruments to join the Paris Agreement, marking a significant contribution towards the early entry into force of the Paris Agreement. That action by the United States and China to formally join was a significant step towards entry into force this year with countries representing around 40 percent of global emissions having now joined and more than 55 countries having already joined or publicly committed to work towards joining the agreement by the end of 2016. (Whitehouse.org) Shortly thereafter, on October 5 2016, the threshold for entry into force of the Paris Agreement was achieved. The Paris Agreement entered into force on November 4, 2016, thirty days after the date on which at least 55 Parties to the Convention accounting in total for at least an estimated 55% of the total global greenhouse gas emissions have deposited their instruments of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession with the Depositary. (Unfccc.int) The Agreement represents years of international diplomacy and hope for the millions of people across the planet imminently threatened by the impacts of climate change. It is an unprecedented achievement for the environment and one in which the United States showed extraordinary leadership. Climate change is a matter of international concern. It threatens global security and human rights across the planet. It poses a critical threat to countless natural resources. It is one of the single greatest threats humankind has ever faced. The unity demonstrated by the Paris Agreement, both in its negotiations and its ratification, are an illustration that when joined together, we are a thoughtful, powerful transnational community of citizens that can courageously and collectively work together to tackle critical global problems. The work begun in Paris must not be derailed now. It cannot be. The world cannot afford it. The United States must not withdraw from the Paris Agreement. We are asking Americans and members of the international community to join in sending a strong message to President Donald Trump that any consideration of withdrawing from the Paris Agreement is unacceptable.

"STATE OF EMERGENCY" (DRUG EPIDEMIC / NORTHERN NEW MEXICO) HELP SAVE OUR CULTURE
With national statistics, data , and high numbers of deaths,illnesses attributed too drugs and as well our failing public schools, as direct links to the "Drug Epidemic", in Northern New Mexico, we have been placed at the top of national graphs and state counties as one of the worst places for drug overdose, suicide and illness in the country. Thus, we the undersigned concerned tax paying citizens are "Demanding a "State of Emergency" be declared in the county of Rio Arriba, in the state of New Mexico. For several decades we have been in a heavily oppressed, repressed and dire situation in regard too loosing large numbers of souls too include : Teens, young and old adults as well as elderly citizens too the drug infestation, both legal ( narcotic/opiate, ect... ) and illegal ( heroin/meth/pink/cocaine, ect..) drugs. As the Federal Government and DEA cracks down on prescription drug dispensing, the adverse effects have increased the use of heroin and thus, increasing higher incidences of Hepatitis-c, AIDS, Crime, and Criminal Activity in all facets our livelihood. The age groups of addiction has scattered in both directions, currently it has trickled down too adolescence and gone up in some cases too great-grandparent ages. Its is no longer a "FAD" or a "TREND" in many circles it is becoming a "RITE of PASSAGE" and a way of life in others. WE are demanding that; 1) Assessment, treatment, triage, substance abuse teams be dispatched throughout the county communities. ; 2) That a temporary centrally located "medical" detox-facility and housing area be established too address our addicted citizens needs, with hopes that a permanent facility be established in the near future.
Petition to Donald Trump, United Nations
Stop Saudi Arabia from executing innocent 23 year old blind and deaf Munir Adam.
Saudi Arabia is known for its human rights violations and now is planning to behead a blind and deaf man named Munir Adam for the crime of having an opinion different than their own. This is unacceptable especially after Trump's recent visit to Saudi Arabia... We ask the Trump administration and the United Nations to take action against this decision. If the president wants to make America great again he should start by standing up against evil again not by empowering it. We stood with president Trump even though some of us are not US citizens or in the US at all for that matter but we did so because we believed he was right and honest about the things that he said we now ask that he or the UN take action to stop this savagery against innocent and handicapped human beings. God bless us all, God bless Israel and God bless the United States of America.
Petition to Charlie Baker
Pass the Safe Communities Act in Massachusetts
This petition is in support of The Safe Communities Act to make Massachusetts a sanctuary state for undocumented immigrants. President-elect Donald Trump has promised throughout his campaign to round up and deport millions of undocumented immigrants from all over the United States. As of November 13th, 2016, he underlined his resolve to begin carrying out this plan immediately, tearing apart families and communities. As a state that voted against Trump in every single county, we are obligated to disavow the anti-immigrant sentiment and xenophobia that have been core tenets of Trump's presidential campaign. We must act now. The effects of Trump's inhumane proposal have already become clear. Children are terrified that their parents will be deported and the Boston Public School system has called in counselors to help students process their fears. Immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, are the lifeblood of this country. They are our friends, our neighbors, our classmates, our colleagues. They deserve to know that they will not be removed from their homes, separated from their loved ones, or detained indefinitely with no recourse. They deserve to know that we, the residents of Massachusetts, will not tolerate their persecution.Contact info to call your governor and state legislators!

Petition to Carroll County Public Schools
Fight For Our Lives As Students No More School Shootings
Since 2013, there have been nearly 300 school shootings in America — an average of about one a week. As an 11th Grade Student in Carroll County Maryland I have been worried to the point of being scared to walk in to school everyday. We are student's, we have the right to walk into school everyday expecting to receive our mandatory education in safety and comfort yeah I know I could get homeschooled but that's not the point it's not like homeschool shootings happen, public school shootings happen. I sit in class everyday and flinch if I hear a loud sound/bang worrying whether or not someone's shooting up our school. This is not acceptable to any extent. It's not like we have a choice to go to school or not, it's not like we have a choice to prevent our lives from being shot up from some deranged mentally Ill being. Due to education being mandatory we should not only be ensured but guaranteed that our safety is 100% taken care of while being in or around school properties. If you are a student or a parent you understand the Importance of having some sort of front line defense for these type of situations. If you are a human being you understand the devastating effects of losing ones life that closest to you. What do I propose well with the issue at hand there is no full-proof answer of a defense system. But what we can do to at least prevent these Ill beings from gaining access to our facilities is have a metal detector, why well this is and could be our first step of a prevention system. They would be stopped before they have the chance to enter. Another proposal would be to issue defensive training for select school system staff in each School like the administration or hall guards so at least they aren't going blindly to our defense. We should have a Police Officer or State Official in every school. It's like they say you can't bring a knife or a fist to a gun fight you have to fight guns with guns. We need someone in our schools that is approved to carry a firearm and that is approved to be our first line of defense if that's what it takes to protect our lives, our loved ones, our destiny, our legacy as the future of our wonderful country. Regardless of what is to be decided upon in regards of this heartbreaking topic there needs to be a full proof system, policy that prevents us from losing the ones we love most. You are a flat out idiot if you believe that just locking the door and hiding in a corner while someone is in the process of invading our schools is enough, we are only sitting there waiting for them to shoot down that door and shoot us down too. Sign this if you care for your lives as students, sign this if you care about the lives of your kids, do this for us we are victims we are innocent lives that could be no longer. Stand Up Speak Up Make A Change Save Our Lives Please!!!! Share why you signed!!!! Don't allow us to be another statistic of how many losses were caused by school shootings due to lack of a protective policy. Don't be one of those people that say oh this will never happen to me because it can and it will if we don't take action; A 17-year-old student was shot in the parking lot of a Maryland high school on a Monday of February 2018, this is proof that it's everywhere even in our own state don't just pray for the losses pray for the policy that will prevent losses from happening.
