Petition to Texas Voters

Anyone But Cruz for Senate in 2018 and President in 2020

The goal is to defeat Ted Cruz in his 2018 Senate re-election race, which has the benefit of undermining the run he wants to make for President in 2020 Voting against Ted Cruz is a position that almost all Texans, and all Americans, can unite behind. For Texans, this petition is for Republicans, independents and Democrats in Texas to express their intention to vote in the 2018 Texas Senate Republican primary, the potential primary runoff, and/or the general election for anyone but Ted Cruz. For all Americans, this petition is to express your support for our campaign to elect anyone but Ted Cruz for Senate in 2018 and to express your intention to vote for anyone but Cruz for any future national campaigns he might run. Ted Cruz is an embarrassment to the state of Texas and he does not represent the view or values of the vast majority of our great state's 27 million residents. His term in the Senate and his run for President have highlighted that he is in politics only for himself and definitely not in public office for Texans and Texas. He is completely ineffective in the Senate. He is literally hated by almost every other Senator, which makes getting anything done for Texas extremely difficult. Texas has real needs and real problems to solve but Ted Cruz focuses on manufactured controversies to elevate his standing among his extreme right-wing base of supporters, many of which are not Texans. He has cynically determined that the best way to make a name for himself is to always stake out positions that are further right than any other politician, putting him far out of the mainstrean. Beyond being an ideologue, Cruz is also a theocrat and advocates for positions that clearly cross the line of the separation of church and state Signing this petition will signal to those considering running for Senate in 2018 that they have the ability to beat Ted Cruz.

Petition to Lindsey Graham

Demand For The Resignation of Senator Lindsey Graham

The People of South Carolina and The United States Hereby Call For Your Immediate Resignation Based On The Following: - You Have Affirmed Your Support of Roe v. Wade, The Legislation Which Allows For The Murder of Innocent Children, A Disproportionate Number of Which Are Minority Children, While Claiming To Be A Conservative Republican. The Republican Platform Is Expressly Pro-Life, As Are The Vast Majority of South Carolinians Whom You Represent. Being A Member of The United States Senate Means That Your Job Is To Reflect and Represent The Will and Values of The People of South Carolina. You Have Diverged From That Will and Those Values On This and Many Other Issues.  - You Have Cast Votes In The U.S. Senate Contrary To The United States Constitution, Including Votes Which Would Limit The Rights of United States Citizens To Fair Trial, To Have An Attorney, And To Take Constitutional Actions Against Their Government. -You Have Made Comments On The Floor of The Untied States Senate To The Effect of Denying American Citizens The Right To An Attorney, By Saying " And When They Say 'I Want My Lawyer', You Tell Them 'Shut-Up' You Don't Get A Lawyer. You're An Enemy Combatant'". These Comments Were Not Made About Foreign Nationals or Members of A Foreign Army On A Battlefield, But About American Citizens. The Same Types of Citizens We Refer To As Patriots In The American Revolution. -You Have Proven Yourself Incapable of Offering Political or Diplomatic Resolutions To International Issues, Always Wanting First-and-Foremost To Resort To Armed Conflict With Other Nations. While It Is Understood That You Served Many Years In The Armed Forces, It Is Important To Remember That You Served In The Capacity of A Military Attorney, Not As One of The "Boots-On-The-Ground" You So Often Refer To. If You Had Children and If They Were In The Military, You May Be More Reluctant To Call For Such Measures So Quickly. -You Joked On February 25th 2016 About The Murder of Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, A Presidential Candidate Who Vastly Out Performed You In The 2016 Presidential Campaign By Saying "If You Killed Ted Cruz On The Floor of The Senate, And The Trial Was In The Senate, No One Would Convict You". This Is Not The Character of The State of  South Carolina. While Your Comment Is Likely True, As The Senate Appears To Be Filled With People Who Would Detain The Murderer Without A Trial and Deny Them An Attorney, Your Comment Is A Disgrace To The State of South Carolina and Her People. For These Reasons We The Undersigned Call For The Immediate Resignation of Senator Lindsey Graham.
