Letter to Congress re: Investigation of Russian interference in 2016 Presidential Election
Dear Members of Congress, We the people urge you investigate the evidence of Russian interference of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The public has the right to know if Putin or anyone else corrupted the political mechanisms of the nation. If, when, and where any evidence is found that Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election has affected the final voting outcome, then new emergency repeat elections MUST be conducted by paper ballot in those affected states. We MUST not allow the 2016 United States presidential election to be hijacked by Russia or by anybody else.To allow this is to negate the very idea of democracy itself. If we allow the Russians to interfere with our democratic presidential election voting process, then all of the American people will have been made into Vladimir Putin's puppets. On 11/15/2016 the director of the National Security Agency, Admiral Michael Rogers, was asked about the WikiLeaks release of hacked information during the campaign, and he said, "This was a conscious effort by a nation-state to attempt to achieve a specific effect." He added, "This was not something that was done casually. This was not something that was done by chance. This was not a target that was selected purely arbitrarily." This stunning statement that has echoed other remarks from senior US officials. Adm. Rogers is saying that Russia directly intervened in the US election to obtain a desired end: presumably to undermine confidence in US elections or to elect Donald Trump—or both. Adm. Rogers was clearly accusing Vladimir Putin of meddling with American democracy. Presumably intelligence and law enforcement agencies are robustly probing the hacking of political targets attributed to Russia. But there is another inquiry that is necessary: a full-fledged congressional investigation that holds public hearings and releases its findings to the citizenry. If the FBI, CIA, and other intelligence agencies are digging into the Russian effort to affect US politics, there is no guarantee that what they uncover will be shared with the public. The investigative activities of these agencies are not designed for public enlightenment or assurance. That's the job of Congress. That is what is required now. If a foreign government has mucked about and undercut a presidential election, how can Americans be secure about the foundation of the nation and trust their own government? So far, the only Capitol Hill legislator who has publicly called for such an endeavor is Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). Sen. Graham, has proposed that Congress hold hearings on "Russia's misadventures throughout the world," including the DNC hack. "Were they involved in cyberattacks that had a political component to it in our elections?" The possibility that a foreign government covertly interfered with US elections is staggering. It raises the most profound concerns about governance within the United States. An investigation into this matter should not be relegated to the secret corners of the FBI or the CIA. There already is reason to be suspicious. Without a thorough examination, there will be more cause to question American democracy.

Indict Casey "Champagne" Charbonneau for distribution of Child Pornography
As we all know, Facebook has suspended multiple Pro-Bernie Sanders groups due to Casey "Champagne" Charbonneau spamming the groups with child pornography. Seeing as publishing child pornography is a federal felony, Casey should be indicted for sharing lewd images of minors on a social media platform. No longer will we allow Hillarys goons to bring us down and stifle our candidate. INDICT CASEY CHAMPAGNE ON CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CHARGES!
Petition to Barack Obama
STOP ELECTION FRAUD BY BANNING ALL ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES!
Prevent election fraud by banning electronic voting machines, which are easily manipulated, in all federal elections. The right of citizens to vote for government officials is one of the most sacred rights in a free society, and is the bedrock of representative democracy. However, an estimated 20 to 30 percent of voters nationwide cast their ballots using electronic machines, which have been shown to be easily hacked. Experts in the Vulnerability Assessment Team at the Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois have demonstrated that it only takes a little bit of cash and an 8th-grade science education to build a device that can remotely alter voting results without leaving a trace. Not only can electronic voting machines be hacked at the polling place, but as The Daily Beast points out, they can be tampered with before they arrive there and when the data is transmitted for central counting. These and similar concerns pushed the Netherlands to ban voting machines and return to paper ballots. In addition to concerns about the technology of the machines themselves, it is also troubling that the use of these machines invites corporations to participate in the electoral process, since all machines are produced by corporations. The United States was formed with the notion that the government exists to protect and empower its citizens. This responsibility extends to protecting the transparency of elections, which can be done only when the government, media, and citizens work together to ensure it. The government has no place in privatizing such an essential element of our democracy. In order to prevent election fraud and to ensure the transparency of our elections, electronic voting machines must be banned. By outlawing them, we pave the way for a return to paper ballots, which leave a clear trail and allow for direct public observation.
Petition to U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, President of the United States, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders, Dr. Ben Carson, Chris Christie, U.S. Governors
Make hand counted paper ballots for official elections mandatory by law.
The confidence of the People of the United States of America in our form of government and the election process for various reasons and perceptions, whether justified or unjustified, has been eroded to a point that is not good for our continued existence as a nation of States that are united. Today, there is a prevalent perception that we are forced to vote for the lesser of two evils, and that in fact there is no lesser of two, but rather two faces of the same evil, presented by two political parties that dominate our local and federal elections. The confidence of the American People in the governments of the nation and the States is arguably the lowest it has ever been. Adding to this, we have seen the advent of electronic voting machines that are used in our elections, further raising the skepticism regarding whether we have a real voice in determining who our elected officials will be. This leaves us wondering whether the voting is rigged for the benefit of certain entities that do not have our interest at heart, but rather their own pockets and hold on power. When our form of government was first established over two centuries ago, the framers of the Constitution could not have foreseen the technologies of today to include the computer and electronic voting, or the dangers of electronic sabotage that would subvert the will of the People. In such a technologically advanced environment that exists in these times we need a new law mandating manually counted paper ballots in elections to eliminate the risk of hacking, or even the very perception that such crimes are being perpetrated. We the People signing this petition believe in our form of government as laid out and explained in our Constitution, and seek to preserve that form of government in its purest form as a Republic of elected representatives. We stand united in insuring the integrity of our voting system and securing the blessings of Liberty to our posterity, and we stand united in demanding a new law for a new time. We know that no system is perfect or impervious to corruption, but we believe that this would be a great step to making the best of the form of elections that we do have, and a worthy venture of restoring the confidence of the People in our electoral processes. We have seen a campaign of not voting at all, saying that there is only the illusion of choice, showing an apathy among the People regarding the vote and a doubt of whether we truly have a government that governs by our consent. We maintained the right to bear arms to defend ourselves from tyranny, maintaining the power necessary to insure the government is in service to the People which formed it. However, we also have our common sense and good reason, therefore we petition the government to show its good faith and fidelity in its service to the People, and to address many concerns regarding the integrity of our election process by adopting this measure. It is time for We the People and our government servants, the President of the United States, and the members of the House and Senate, and the Governors of the several States, to stand together to protect the integrity of our elections and to reinvigorate the enthusiasm of the People of this nation for its form of government and processes of election. This measure will serve to help dispel the perception of the People that our government has become a government that rules by force and deception, instead of serving by our consent in honest accordance with the principles of our Republic. This may cost us more time and money, but it is well worth it, for it would serve a great deal to preserve our nation and the form of government that We the People had established over two hundred years ago.

Petition to The Walt Disney Company, disneyworld imagineering
Demand that the Donald Trump Animatronic, SPEAK, in Hall of President's, at Disneyworld
This is a petition to DEMAND, that the Donald Trump figure, (at the hall of president's at Walt Disneyworld). Speak, the same exact average amount of time, as the Bill Clinton, Bush 1 and 2, and Barack Obama figures spoke for. Anything, different, would be intolerant, and offensive, to all of the consumers of Disney products, who believe in the constitutional process and the respect of the office of the constitutional government process, that the show is meant to be a tribute to. If the Walt Disney company is unreasonable, in this regard, and does not show the same respect to this President, as all the President's since 1993, then we will strongly consider drastically reducing our consumption of walt Disney products, worldwide.
Petition to Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump
Commit to act for paid family leave for all in your first 100 days
Under ordinary circumstances, two mothers as different as we are would never have met. One of us is from Oklahoma and is a registered Republican. The other is an unmarried liberal who lives in Brooklyn. But tragedy has a way of bringing people together. Last year, we both lost our babies, infant sons who died at daycare, after we’d left them in childcare to return to work. Neither of us wanted to leave our babies when we did, at mere weeks old, not yet. But neither of us had the luxury of choice. Our respective employers would not grant us any more time for parental leave, and we couldn’t afford to quit our jobs. So, reluctantly, on an April morning in Oklahoma, baby Shepard was left at daycare. A childcare worker swaddled him for a nap, placed him in a car seat, and didn’t check on him. He slipped down and suffocated, still too little to lift up his own head. Just as reluctantly, in July, baby Karl was dropped off for his first day at daycare near his mother’s Manhattan office. When she came back to feed him at noon, Karl’s lips were blue and a childcare worker was performing CPR. A medical examiner could not determine why this healthy baby died. 1 in 4 American moms have no choice but to return to work just two weeks after the birth of a child. 87 percent of parents have no access to paid leave through their employers. No parent should have to choose between leaving their baby too soon and making ends meet. Given that 73% of Republicans, 87% of independents and 96% of Democrats agree it is important for Congress and the president to consider a family leave insurance system, we are jointly calling on the candidates for president, Republican and Democrat, to publicly commit that, if elected, they will take action for national paid family leave policy in their first 100 days in office. Most babies don’t die in day care, of course. But, as it turns out, our instinct that Karl and Shepard would be safer if we could have stayed with them a little longer was not wrong. An important study released last week found that for each additional month that a woman has paid parental leave, infant mortality goes down 13 percent. America has the highest infant mortality rate of any industrialized nation in the world. Paid leave, in countries that have implemented it, has dramatically lowered infant death rates. But beyond this, parental leave is good for our children. When Norway began offering paid parental leave, there were dramatic long-range effects: children had lower high school dropout rates, higher rates of college attendance, and higher incomes at age 30. American babies whose mothers don’t have maternity leave are less likely to be taken to the doctor, and less likely to be breastfed. Toddlers of parents without access to paid leave have more behavioral problems, and score lower on cognitive tests. Every American baby would be safer, healthier, and have a better start in life if given time with their mother or father during the first months of life. If our political leaders claim to be pro-family, they need to put families first by supporting paid family leave. In the richest country in the world, we should not have sobbing mothers leaving their premature babies in the NICU because they have to return to their jobs. We do not need to tear babies from their mothers’ arms before they can even hold up their own necks. Parental leave is a necessity, not a perk. Join us, a mom from Oklahoma and a mom from Brooklyn, in calling upon the presidential candidates of both parties to publicly commit that, if elected, they will take action for paid family leave policy in their first 100 days in office. Through our great loss, we are now united to fight for change. We charge our leaders, both Republican and Democrat, to enact laws that protect the right of every American baby to have the loving care of a parent during the fragile first months of their life.
