Petition to Congress
Elect Sheev Palpatine as President of the U.S.
"I am the senate!" "Do it!" "Are you threatening me, Master Jedi?" "It's treason, then." "Have you ever heard The Tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise?" "I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith who lived many years ago. He was so powerful and so wise that he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying."
Petition to Congress, U.S. Senate
All presidential candidates must pass a lifestyle polygraph before running
All presidential candidates are given security briefings, exposing some of the nation's most tightly kept secrets. If they are elected, they not only have access to pretty much all the nation's secrets, with no vetting whatsoever, but they have their finger on the button! It's critically important that all of these people must be vetted BEFORE they are allowed to run for the highest office in this country. Many who work in the intelligence community must pass a lifestyle polygraph before being granted access to ANY sensitive information, and must pass a C.I. polygraph every few years after that, to maintain our clearances. It only makes common sense that people who will be given access to classified information, and who will be responsible for the safety of millions of Americans, be required to pass the same test. It may also help Americans from voting for, or electing, people who are dishonest and untrustworthy. The polygraph isn't perfect, but it's a great start!

Electoral AND Popular vote should be required for the Presidency
Like many Americans, we are extremely frustrated with the knowledge that our votes, and the votes of millions of other Americans who do not live in “swing states”, are rendered meaningless by the Electoral College. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE OUR VOTES MEAN SOMETHING! PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION REFORM IS REQUIRED, but the most popular ideas may be unrealistic because they may never gain bipartisan support. For example, there are many petitions circulating to ABOLISH the Electoral College, but this may never happen because abolishing the Electoral College is disadvantageous to states with smaller populations which tend to vote Republican (i.e., candidates would only target urban areas and ignore rural areas). This petition offers a compromise alternative which deserves bipartisan support from both Texas Republicans and California Democrats: a change to our presidential election process so that a candidate is required to win BOTH the electoral AND the popular vote. This is not a suggestion to REPLACE the Electoral College, which is the popular idea but would be disadvantageous to smaller states, but to replace the current process with one that would allow the vast majority of voters of BOTH parties to feel that their votes ACTUALLY COUNT. This deserves bipartisan support since the Electoral College is not entirely eliminated, and in case of an Electoral/Popular vote split, the Senate (which favors smaller states), breaks the tie instead of the House. And again, the millions of Texas Republicans who felt powerless in stopping Obama from winning the presidency WOULD BENEFIT JUST AS MUCH as the millions of California Democrats who feel voiceless right now... Democratic and Republican Senators, please co-sponsor such legislation (And Republicans, please keep in mind that, if nothing is done, it is only a matter of time before a Republican nominee loses an election while winning the popular vote!) THANK YOU!!!

Include Gary Johnson in national Presidential polls
The Commission on Presidential Debates determines whether or not a candidate can be included in the debates based on their performance in five selected national polls. In order to be included in the debates, a candidate must be polling at 15% nationwide. We, the undersigned, believe that Governor Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee for President has a chance to reach that threshold. A recent Fox News poll found Gov. Johnson to have 12% support nationwide and his mainstream media exposure in recent weeks has been unprecedented for a Libertarian Presidential candidate, which means that his support has likely grown. Paired with the fact that polls have consistently shown Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to be among the most polarizing candidates in history, we believe that there is a real opportunity this year for a third-party candidate to make a difference. With the Libertarian Party being the only third party likely to appear on the ballot in all fifty states and the political experience of both Gov. Johnson and his running mate, Governor William Weld, we believe that they are the most likely to capitalize on this opportunity. We urge you to include Governor Johnson in your national polling and help give the American voter another option this November.
