The Future of America Starts with You!

As an engaged citizen who deeply cares about the future of our democracy, I am starting this petition to advocate for the addition of a third National political party in the American political system. Over the years, I have witnessed numerous qualified and culturally diverse candidates at various levels of government being overlooked simply because they did not align with one of the two major parties. If we want change we have to build it as a community, from the ground up. Our current two-party system has created a divisive and polarized political environment, where compromise and collaboration are often sacrificed for partisan gains. This leaves many Americans feeling disillusioned, as their voices go unheard amidst this constant tug-of-war between Democrats and Republicans. We are a country blessed by Divinity, we have to use that communal strength and design community activities that protect our tried and true way of life: The AMERICAN Dream. It is time to break free from this restrictive paradigm and introduce a National party: The National American Independence Party that can provide an alternative option for those dissatisfied with our current political landscape. By adding this third national party, we can foster greater diversity of ideas, encourage healthy competition among candidates, and ultimately strengthen our democracy with cultural Americans that, love, care and will defend the American way. Here are some facts and statistics that are crucial to highlight why it is necessary to introduce another viable national political option: 1. Lack of representation: According to Gallup polls conducted over several years, approximately 40% of Americans identify as independents or have no affiliation with either major party. Yet these individuals often find themselves marginalized due to limited choices on Election Day.(Source: Gallup) 2. Voter dissatisfaction: Studies have consistently shown that voter satisfaction with both major parties has declined significantly over recent decades. A Pew Research Center survey found that only 22% of registered voters were satisfied with their choices during the 2016 presidential election.(Source: Pew Research Center) 3. Limited policy options: The dominance of two parties restricts policy debates primarily within their own frameworks, leaving little room for alternative perspectives or innovative solutions.(Source: Brookings Institution) By introducing a third national party like: The National American Independence Party, we can address these issues and provide a platform for qualified candidates who may not fit neatly into the existing party structures. This will enable a wider range of voices to be heard, fostering greater representation and inclusivity in our political system. Together, let's work on bringing qualified community originated and servant leader trained candidates and let us urge our elected officials and policymakers to recognize the need for change. Sign this petition to support the introduction of a third national party that can break the shackles of the two-party system, giving Americans more options and ensuring that qualified cultural American candidates are no longer overlooked due to partisan biases. Let us work towards a future where our democracy truly reflects our constitution and the diverse perspectives and aspirations of all its citizens.

Congress: Tesla Superchargers and Plugs should be the U​.​S. standard for EVs

While electric vehicle technology has rapidly advanced, the charging standard in the U.S. has not. CCS and SAE J1772, the US’s common standards, are clunky, cumbersome, and expensive. A recent study showed Tesla Superchargers provide the best EV charging experience. The connector is easier to use, the port is small, convenient, and universal for AC or DC Fast Charging.   Imagine if every electric vehicle could utilize Tesla’s lightweight, incredibly efficient, elegant connector?   As the founders of Aptera, EV enthusiasts, and vehicle charging experts, we believe the U.S. government should adopt Tesla’s Supercharger Technology as the standard for ALL EV charging in the U.S.  A Texas program recently disclosed that installing a Supercharger station costs just one-fifth of other networks.  Given the significant amount of funding our government will put into charging infrastructure, we believe that fast charging stations across the U.S. should be based on Tesla’s standards.  If our country began to support Tesla’s charging standards now, we could begin expanding our infrastructure at a much reduced cost, saving $4 billion dollars on projected charging infrastructure spending through 2027. Imagine what other EV programs we could support with that $4 billion in savings!  If you agree that Tesla’s charging standards are good for EVs and the U.S., please help. Sign this petition and encourage decision-makers in Congress to adopt Tesla’s charging standards and connectors as the U.S. industry standard. With Washington D.C.'s goal for 50% of car sales to be electric by 2030, our country needs to adopt Tesla Supercharger and Plug standards before another dollar is wasted on inferior technology.

Petition to

Gas Rebates for Wisconsin Residents

As I watch the price of gas go up daily, I can't help but observe how this is affecting so many people in my local city and around my county.  People are having to decide on either getting gas or getting the food they need for their families.  The Federal Government is all talk but no show on any attempt to resolve the sky rocketing costs of gas.  The current administration and their agenda to go green, is not doing enough to make the much-needed changes that middle class families need now.  I understand that the Ukraine war has affected our ability to purchase gas from Russia, but if we stayed the course of being energy independent, we wouldn't have to deal with purchasing gas from Russia and supporting a communistic country with a dictator as a leader.  If the Federal Government thinks that rising the cost of gas will push people to buy electric cars, they have another thing coming.  No one is going to go out and spend 75K and over to purchase a new electric car especially when the electric costs are also getting higher because of inflation.   Where does this end? So this petition is to encourage our state officials to send out a gas rebate to all Wisconsin residents of $100 per month, until the costs get back to 2.93, which was the average cost of regular gas a year ago for the state of Wisconsin.   My goal is to get 100,000 signatures so that we can push our local state officials to adopt this new change.  See additional data for gas prices in Wisconsin below: Current Avg.   Regular: $4.893  Mid-Grade: $5.202  Premium: $5.623  Diesel: 5.305 Year Ago Avg. Regular: $2.893  Mid-Grade: $3.222  Premium: $3.599  Diesel: $3.086
