We the People Petition Senate Leadership to immediately Expel Senator Rafael "Ted" Cruz as well as other Senators who have show time and time again that they do Not believe in Democracy or the Constitution of the United States instead of Being loyal to the Constitution and Principles of U.S. Democracy they are loyal to a wanna be Dictator Tyrant. Everything our founding fathers were against. Ted Cruz has shown time and time again that he does Not Value the Constitution or Democracy for that matter.as one of Rafael "Ted" Cruz's Constituents I have watched for years as Ted Cruz has used Lies and Misleading statements to advance his political career. Finally those Lies have come to a head Our Nation has been embarrassed, our Election Officials have been threatened and four people including a Police Officer have died as a result of the actions and rhetoric of Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and over 100 other members of Congress. Ted Cruz said in a statement that he was speaking to give a voice to the people who had doubts about the Election. Doubts that He, Donald Trump and other Republicans helped sow. with No validity what So ever! I now ask that some one speak for us the people who question whether Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Other Not all Republicans. helped instigate a coup and insurrection we deserve to have our voices heard as well. As concerned Citizens we ask for the Senate to Expel Rafael Ted Cruz for his Treasonous actions that threaten the stability and the Democracy of the United States of America. An ask that he be prosecuted under the appropriate laws for sedition! So that it may serve as an example to those who threaten Democracy that all will be held accountable please sign my other related petitionHelp stop misinformed voting

Remove the Confederate Monuments from Bastrop County Property

Let’s demand the removal of the Confederate Monuments standing on the grounds of the Bastrop County Courthouse, in Bastrop Texas. The monuments are engraved with two crossed confederate flags on one side and the words of a Confederate war song “Lest we Forget” on the other.  They were established by the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1910 to honor Confederate soldiers from Bastrop County who fought in the war against civil rights.  These monuments were set on the lawn to memorialize the history of the confederacy.  As it was stated, to cherish the heritage of southern blood and southern chivalry.  The United Daughters of the Confederate supported white supremacy, the Ku Klux Klan, and the altering of textbooks to change the narrative around slavery.   Confederate monuments were built and given places of honor in public spaces.  These symbols of white supremacy have always been memorials to the cause of slavery and the denial of humanity to Black people. Now they are being weaponized to rally white supremacists. We have the power to diffuse these modern-day lynch mobs by removing these statues altogether, instead of giving white supremacists a rally point. The intent of this petition is to request that Bastrop County Judge Paul Pape and the commissioners of the court:  Mel Hamner, Clara Beckett, Mark Meuth, and Donna Snowden, immediately remove all Confederate monuments from all County properties in Bastrop County; including but not limited to, the two confederate monuments currently located on the Bastrop County Courthouse grounds. These monuments are a representation of the pain, affliction and oppression inflicted upon Black Americans.  We are at a time in history where we should be promoting equity for all, and denouncing all forms of racism that poison our communities.   Removing all Confederate monuments would be one step among many in sending the message that we are no longer honoring white supremacy at a societal level.  Join with me today and pledge to support the removal of all Confederate monuments and symbols from the greater Bastrop County communities.   HELP US TAKE THEM DOWN!

Remove Judge McBryde

 Federal Judge McBryde of the 5th District Court in  Ft Worth Texas is known for abusing his power and for unfair and extremely harsh sentencing. The 5th Circuit Court has attempted to remove him multiple times before. He has sued the court for recommending a psychiatric evaluation. He fines, arrests, and threatens lawyers that question him making it nearly impossible for anyone to receive a fair trial. He has recently given a second time child pornographer 44% below the suggested guidelines for sentencing. He is known to give white gang members lower sentences than first time offenders. Statistically he gives harsher sentences to minorities.  This man is 88 years old and should no longer sit as a federal judge. We are asking simply for him to be removed and/or especially for him to submit a  mandatory psychiatric evaluation to determine whether or not his recent cases should be over-turned and defendants resentenced by another judge. For more information please read the links below, simple do a google news search of his name, or check out the comments by the people whom signed it.
