The governor, His Excellency Moses Akaranga has named his county cabinet as they await approval by the county assembly. We request the assembly not to approve the names of the COUNTY EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE members as they were not duly advertised to ensure fairness, merit and transparency.
This is a new constitution and with the devolvement of power, we need to have the most qualified people in office to raise the standards of our County. We have long lurked behind with our people being unemployed, high rates of poverty, drug abuse and high crime rates. To be a better county we need the best not political favours or buddies in key positions. We urge the County Assembly to reject the names and request the Governor to follow due process.
We need an economically, socially and politically powered Vihiga County!!!
Australia does not have explicit freedom of speech in any constitutional or statutory declaration of rights, with the exception of political speech which is protected from criminal prosecution at common law.
The Australian people want and need Free Speech. The Prime Minister needs to call a referendum to have this changed.
It is written in the US Constitution that Congress must pass a budget. No budget has been passed in over 4 years.
Every able bodied individual in America should be required to own a firearm. Project Amendment 28 is dedicated to commonsense gun ownership and each citizen doing their fare share for the well-being of the United States.
In Switzerland, government funded civilian militias are the foundation of the most peaceful of European countries. All Swiss men get military training except for those who have opted for an alternative civilian service. If you do neither military nor civilian service you get taxed. After getting your Swiss Army training you go home and become part of the militia for the next 10 years or so, and your gun goes with you.
Kennesaw, Georgia requires gun ownership. In 2007, Family Circle magazine selected Kennesaw as one of the nations "10 best towns for families."
In Israel, every soldier carries his or her weapon at all times. Large numbers of citizens also carry firearms openly, or concealed. Street crime is non-existent and numerous terrorist attacks have been foiled due to the quick responses of average citizens.
The right, and obligation, of every free citizen to keep and bear arms is a fundamental bulwark against tyranny, an essential tool for self defense and a key to the self-reliance so essential to the American character.
Senator John Madigan, DLP Ballarat, will submit a motion to the Senate in early February to amend Section 128 of our Constitution to give all voters the right to INITIATE referendums.
The war on cannabis began in the United States in the early 1900's and has proven to be a failed policy that has shown no progress and has only resulted in the arrests of millions of U.S. citizens and labeled them as "criminals" causing lifelong social consequences, thus exacerbating a problem that belongs in the category of public health and not law enforcement.
Medical marijuana is now legal in 18 states and Washington D.C. and marijuana has been fully legalized in 2 more states. Legalization is overwhelmingly supported by people under the age of 40 who have seen firsthand accounts of the social consequences that result from the arrests of so many people because they use a relatively harmless substance when compared to other potentially harmful substances such as fast food, sodas, alcohol, hard drugs etc.
Congress has continually shown no interest in addressing this issue due to the fact that re-election is more important these days than addressing the real problems that our country faces and they are simply too afraid of being seen as "soft" on drugs even though the public is increasingly sick and tired of wasting resources on this losing battle.
The most common sense way that we, the people, can solve this issue is to use our constitutional right of jury nullification when we are called on to serve in a jury related to potential marijuana convictions.
Stop blaming the NRA and blaming the responsible gun holders... stop trying to take our second amendment constitutional rights away.
Deputize all willing school teachers and staff, training them in proper defensive handgun procedures. Run them through a course at the local sheriff or police station.
Add a volunteer police station/office in every school.
In 2012, billions of dollars were donated by We the People of the United States of America to our politicians who sought election to administer our government. But how much was spent on candidates who would actually work for our best interest and institute change?
This is a NON-POLITICAL campaign to demand that the US Congress makes the change required to rebuild America. Our elected officials are not leaders, but puppets working for their puppet master, the Federal Reserve System. A system created whereby a non-governmental, third party comprised of individuals who are not all US citizens, let alone residents, administer and control the US currency. These independent controllers of our currency were given this right by an Act of Congress 99-years ago; an Act which has been amended, modified or altered over 200 times since its inception. Who knows what powers this Act in its current state gives the Fed; the amendments are impossible to follow so one cannot get a clear and concise understanding as to what the Fed is authorized to do for We the People.
The naked and simple truth is the following: The national debt that starts with this Federal Reserve interest is what causes the shortages that make us as a nation need to constantly go over budget in order to do our governmental duties and responsibilities. Keeping ourselves as a nation tied to the Federal Reserve creates debt each and every day it exists without us doing anything.
The Federal Reserve System is a cancer that has poisoned our ability to be the America we all dream of. We were not created to sit, work and live to pay off interest to the Federal Reserve. And yet, we have now bound our children and our children’s children to paying off this interest?
We need to understand that these non-elected, third party Banksters are the controllers of our nation and therefore have become the real puppet masters of our elected officials. Again, these puppet masters are the third party banking members that comprise our current Federal Reserve System, which is an independent banking cartel.
Those bankers who control our currency are the same people who got America into this current mess called the Fiscal Cliff. In fact, they are the current team of bankers who, using the rules of their banking order, created all the recessions and depressions since 1913. And while We the People suffer, this elite group personally profits on all the ups and downs.
An Act of Congress in 1913 created this cartel called the Fed and an Act of Congress today can end it. It’s that simple. The Fed does nothing but take. It contributes nothing to our world except to divide us into two classes, the real 99% and the 1%, where we the 99% live in fear. We allow this game to go on and on. Our Congress is now talking about austerity and how to fix the Fiscal Cliff that actually the Federal Reserve System created. But our leaders’ remedies do not discuss, let alone propose, to remove the cause, the Federal Reserve. We now need to ask - Why is the Fed above us? Why are they untouchable?
Forty-nine years ago in 1963 American President JFK, in his efforts to rebuild our country, was ready to remove the Fed from controlling our currency. This was Kennedy's effort and vision for fighting the War on Poverty. His administration was issuing US Treasury notes interest free to finance the rebuilding of America.
People, understand, the currency in your pocket is a Federal Reserve note which you are entitled to turn into a US Treasury note of equal value if you ask the Treasury to give you one. So in the simplest form, why do we need the Federal Reserve note which has interest attached when we could have a US Treasury note interest free distributed by a US owned and controlled Central Bank?
It is that simple. The Fed is doing the job that the US Constitution says that the US Treasury was created and empowered to perform – to print the paper currency, manufacture the coins and distribute this currency to the public. So we need to ask ourselves, why do we need this independent, third party system called the Federal Reserve to continue to exist.
JFK was actually able to get $2 and $5 US Treasury bills into circulation before he was assassinated. But for his untimely death, the other denominations would have been put into circulation. The War on Poverty would have been financed by this US Treasury interest free currency. We would be living in a different world today if JFK’s campaign against poverty would have been allowed to run its course.
Today, the voting citizens of the United States are polarized more than any time in our nation’s history since our Civil War. We have Republicans and Democrats as well as Independents fighting over how to pay for governmental services. These services can only be paid for with the net monies after the interest debt is first paid to the Federal Reserve. This interest debt is paid each and every year plus all other costs and expenses the Federal Reserve members say they incur. They then give the government what is left over to run the country.
Now our public services, aspects of life that we ALL need to survive as a community are being reduced to nothing while the Federal Reserve collects the income tax first. We do not even question this entire procedure before this interest bill is paid. This Federal Reserve interest for some reason has never become a focal point within our Congress to solve the problem. Instead, the debt is the main focus of our elected officials, and we say it’s time to focus on the real problem, those who caused the Fiscal Cliff and the exponentially mounting debt.
We, the undersigned, choose to unite as Americans, regardless of our political affiliation, and understand we must own and control our currency as one nation in order to be truly free.
We must change the United States' banking system NOW.
You Have the Power to Stop the ObamaCare Artificial Contraception Mandate
Catholic Birth Control: 99% Efficacy Rate, Better Sex, Greater Intimacy & Unconditional Love
The Obama Administration announced that as part of ObamaCare it would mandate that Catholic and all other religious institutions will be forced to provide artificial contraception and abortion pills in their insurance plans even though this is a violation of Church teaching. Scores of Catholic institutions and over a dozen states are suing the Obama Administration for violating the 1st Amendment religious freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
Did you know that the Birth Control Pill and all other artificial chemical hormone products are classified as Class I Carcinogens (cancer causing agents) by the World Health Organization and the U.S. Federal Government?
Did you know that the artificial chemical hormones that the ObamaCare Artificial Contraception Mandate will provide to all girls and women for FREE cause various cancers, heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, weight gain, mood swings along with other physical complications and dangers for women?
Did you know that since “The Pill” was introduced to America in 1960 that breast cancer rates skyrocketed from 1 in 20 women to the current 1 in 8 and now 250,000 women are stricken with breast cancer every year in the U.S.A and around 40,000 die? DETAILS
Did you know that the ObamaCare artificial contraception mandate is intended to give all girls carcinogenic chemical hormones from the age of puberty until menopause?
Do you think having Class I Carcinogens in the bodies of all American women for the typical 40 years of fertility is good for the health of our magnificent American women?
Do you think filling your wife, mother, daughter or sister with Class I Carcinogens during their typical 40 years of fertility is good for their health or does it pose unacceptable health risks to your loved ones that you will not allow?
Did you know that virtually no one uses artificial contraception correctly 100% of the time and every instance of misuse causes severe risks of Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) transmission and also drastically increases unplanned pregnancy rates?
Did you know that over 50% of abortions are a result of this well-known misuse of artificial contraception?
Did you know that an ex-director of the largest abortion provider in America admitted that this organization knows that artificial contraception is a complete failure as clearly shown by the statistics above and their objective is to influence politicians to force government schools to teach “Safe Sex” lies to our children with the goal of executing 3-5 abortions on our young girls from the ages of 13-18 when virtually all sexually promiscuous children misuse artificial contraception?
Did you know that the artificial contraception “Safe Sex” lie still results in 1 Million abortions in America each year and many women undergo multiple abortions as per the plan stated above when artificial contraception fails?
Did you know that condoms do not protect against the incurable skin-to-skin contact STDs of HPV and HSV resulting in a projected 80% infection rate of HPV amongst women and up to a 50% infection rate of HSV for all sexually promiscuous individuals?
Did you know that there are 19 Million new STD cases in America every year and the cumulative effect over the past 6 decades has devastated our society with mass STD infections of all kinds?
Did you know that the MAJORITY of our children practice “ABSTINENCE ONLY” while in grade through high school and DO NOT experience unplanned pregnancies or the devastation of STDs during these vital developmental years?
Did you know that the artificial contraception “Safe Sex” lie and the accompanying “use and be used for casual sex, but take the pill and use a condom” propaganda facilitated the skyrocketing fatherless home rate in America from 6% in 1960 to 43% today with a shocking 70+% fatherless home rate in our black communities?
Did you know that the Obama Administration is attempting to force artificial contraception on the Catholic Church in DIRECT VIOLATION of the religious freedoms GUARANTEED by 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and dozens of Catholic organizations and over a dozen states are suing the Obama Administration for violating the Constitution?
Did you know that women are only fertile on average 10 days per month so the ObamaCare artificial contraception mandate will cause millions of women to unsuspectingly take Class I Carcinogens from puberty to menopause when they are already infertile 20 day of every month?
Did you know that the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method keeps women free from Class I Carcinogenic chemicals and the resulting health dangers?
Did you know that the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method has up to a 99% efficacy rate of preventing pregnancy and this is a better effective rate than many artificial contraception methods mandated by ObamaCare?
Did you know that couples that practice the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method report better sex, greater intimacy and unconditional love for each other?
Did you know that couples from all religions, Atheists and agnostics practice the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method because it is scientifically proven to be superior over artificial contraception methods physically, biochemically, psychologically, medically and for people of faith spiritually plus it has the vital benefit of keeping women free from carcinogenic chemicals during the entirety of their reproductive years?
Did you know that the men that practice the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method know about and respect their wives’ bodies more than the average woman that practices artificial contraception knows about her own body?
Did you know that this concern for the health and wellbeing of their wife’s body creates the trust, unconditional love and respect that all men and women need emotionally and psychologically to maintain healthy and strong marital relationships?
Did you know that the divorce rate doubled from 25% to 50% after the pill was introduced to America in 1960?
Did you know married couples, including Catholic couples that practice artificial contraception experience this 50% divorce rate with many experiencing multiple divorces, but couples that practice the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method have a 0.2% divorce rate?
Did you know that virtually no American citizen including our politicians knows the full details of the ObamaCare artificial contraception mandate and that there is a new and captivating website developed to provide the complete details to everyone?
Now that you know the scientific truths revealed herein will you HELP to STOP the ObamaCare artificial contraception mandate?
Thank you for taking your valuable time to discover the information we have provided for you. Please sign our petition now.
We've all been told that 10 of the 12 original articles in the Bill of Rights were ratified. In fact, all of them were ratified. Article #2 was ratified in 1992 and became our 27th amendment. Article #3 dealt with Free Speech and we all know it was ratified.
Article One of the Bill of Rights was actually ratified in 1792 but not recognized as ratified because people truly didn't know it was ratified. This case is now in the 3rd circuit court of appeals. (BoldTruth.com has the filing).
This is what this Petition is about. Finally getting it recognized for what it is. RATIFIED AND THE LAW OF THE LAND TO BE FOLLOWED.
One Representative for every 50,000 Citizens.
Article II of the United States Constitution requires that any person elected to be the President must be a natural born citizen. The present occupant of that office, Barack Hussein Obama, failed to show an applicable form of documentation until April 27, 2011 when he produced a document purporting to establish his birthplace as Hawaii. Analyses of the document by a number of experts have shown that it probably is a forgery.
Prior to his election to the presidency, he claimed Kenya as his place of birth, and a biography published by a literary agency stated that he was born in Kenya. The biography remained unchanged for sixteen years. During a speech in Africa, his wife indicated that Kenya was his home country. Articles in Kenyan newspapers stated that he was born in Kenya.
A former mail carrier in Chicago testified under oath that the foreign student receiving financial support from the parents of William Ayers was Barack Obama. It is believed that during his student days, he traveled to Pakistan while in possession of an Indonesian passport. This would indicate Indonesian citizenship.
There is evidence that, as a child, Barack Obama attended school in Indonesia as Barry Soetoro, the surname of his stepfather.
12. The Proposal
We The People are of the firm belief that our United States Constitution is being violated. We are very aware of the exploitation of our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Further, we also believe that “no one is above the law”. The United States Government officials are NOT upholding their Oaths of office.
Therefore we are offering to you as representatives of We The People our Proposal for government accountability to use as a guide, to endorse the suggested measures therein. As in there are punishments for the People when the law is broken, so should there be punishments for governmental officials as well. Violations to our Constitution and the Declaration of Independence have taken place in the current government administration. Governmental self-interests are running rampant.
We The People are summoning you for assurances that these type violations NEVER take place at any other time in the future within our government. Our liberties and freedoms are the foundations of our very lives. We, therefore, EXPECT our government officials to honor and support the People for whom the above documents were founded.
Assure governmental accountability to the people of the United States of America. Establish rules and guidelines of said accountability and determine punishment and penalties for federal government officials failing to meet the rules and guidelines set forth.
To ensure that the United States Constitution is permanently preserved for the rights, freedoms and liberty as stated therein. To ensure that the United States Constitution is absolutely the “supreme law of the land”. The above proposal assures that “No One Is Above The Law” which includes all elected and appointed officials of the United States Federal Government.
References to Proposal and Purpose
The last time the Constitution was amended, gasoline was $.036/gallon! The current prevailing political system is overwhelmed with corruption. Massive government and political reform is necessarily needed.
The Framers of the Constitution certainly realized they could not achieve absolute perfection in creating the Constitution.
The Framers created procedures for the amendment process in Article V of the Constitution.
The Constitution has been amended 27 times in its history. The first 10 amendments were created by the Bill of Rights proposed by Congress in 1789 and ratified in 1791.
The additional 17 amendments were proposed and ratified in the subsequent 220 years!
With the traditional process, Congress can propose an amendment if two-thirds of its members are in agreement. The amendment can then be ratified by the agreement of three-fourths of the States.
An amendment to the Constitution cannot proceed if the Congress itself is the problem
Our United States Constitution is considered to be the “Supreme Law of the Land”, however it is not currently being enforced to meet that standard. See Article VI of the Constitution.
Each and every elected government official, all executive, judicial and members of Congress of the United States of America are bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support the Constitution.
The definition of tyranny is “oppressive power exerted by government”.
The definition of treason is “a betrayal of trust”.
The people of the United States of America (considering our experiences in the last 3+ years) under the so-called “leadership” of Barack H. Obama and all other elected and appointed federal officials, NEVER again should suffer the consequences of tyrannical and treasonous behavior as exhibited by this, or any future similar government administration. Specifically, tyrannical and treasonous behavior as defined clearly violates our United States Constitution as described in the Circumstances below.
Some of the circumstances under which the people of the United States of America have now become fearful and gravely concerned for our rights, freedoms and liberties are listed below. The current federal administration has violated their Oaths or Affirmations of office and the Constitution. Tyrannical and treasonous actions on behalf of government officials against the people have been committed as detailed below:
Citizens of the United States were denied much needed jobs because drillings for oil in the Gulf of Mexico after the oil spill carried too many frivolous and detailed regulations created by government officials.
Citizens of the United States were denied much needed jobs because government officials would not allow the construction of the Keystone Pipeline.
Creation of a “law” forcing citizens of the U.S. to buy a “product” they do not wish to buy.
Allowing or ignoring a group of non-law enforcers to place a bounty on another citizen’s life.
Allowing or ignoring a group of non-law enforcing citizens that were a “threat” to United States citizens at their voting jurisdictions.
Refusing to deal with known rampant voter fraud thereby making elections corrupt.
The refusal of government officials to establish a government yearly budget.
The refusal of government officials to act upon Standard & Poor’s downgrading of the United States AAA credit rating by not making any progress towards achieving a goal of stabilizing our debt.
Government handouts are already at record levels and the government is not even coming close to paying for all of this reckless spending.
Barack H. Obama openly challenged the Supreme Court of the United States in a State of the Union address. This is absolutely unprecedented – see Marbury vs. Madison.
Barack H. Obama stated that he would bypass Congress.
Barack H. Obama gives our land and resources to the UN.
Barack H. Obama continues to grow government and put us further and further into debt.
Barack H. Obama is prepared to silence those who speak out against him, implement martial law and shut down any resistance.
Barack H. Obama has no use for state governors, especially those who enforce their states' sovereignty. Example, the federal government suing Arizona over their immigration law, yet he refuses to act on illegal immigration.
Barack H. Obama and other government officials have ignored crises in which the intended result of tactics of demonstration and protest which either generate institutional disruption or bring unrecognized disruption to public attention. (Occupy Wall Street, etc.)
Obstruction by the DOJ of North Carolina’s non-partisan elections laws.
DOJ lawyers who represented GTMO detainees.
The fact that we even have a Fast & Furious investigation that Barack H. Obama and the DOJ are deliberately trying to sideline. They ALL needed to be IMPEACHED for this one!!
Barack H. Obama collaborates with the Muslim brotherhood/terrorists.
Barack H. Obama is trying to dismantle the military.
Barack H. Obama has done nothing helpful to improve the dire situation with our housing market.
Certain government officials are “tabling” bills from the House rather than place them up for vote.
There is blatant racial discrimination displayed by the DOJ.
The various scandals being investigated namely, the Secret Service, the U. S. Military and the GSA, just to name a few leads the people to wonder whatever happened to “leading by example”.
The Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s ongoing effort to create international small arms accords that will subvert the Second Amendment rights of U. S. citizens.
Barack H. Obama and his environmentalist allies preventing U. S. industries from taking advantage of our rich natural resources including oil, coal, uranium and timber.
Barack H. Obama’s month long stint as UN Security Council Chair in 2009, the first ever by a sitting U.S. President. Not only did this action give credibility to an international organization ruled by tyrants, it also called into question potential dual loyalties by our President.
The Obama National Security Strategy released that allows for the targeted assassination of U. S. citizens including “homegrown terrorists” without due process.
Barack H. Obama executive order signed in Dec. 2009 that allows Interpol to operate in U. S. territory with impunity and without oversight by Congress, the courts, FBI or local law enforcement.
The State Department using $23 million in taxpayer money to help transform Kenya into a constitutionally communist nation where the freedom of speech is limited and private property rights are subservient to “social justice”. In addition, the recently adopted Kenyan constitution allows for the practice of Sharia Law in some regions, ensuring women will not be guaranteed basic human rights.
The $26 billion bailout of the teacher’s unions that Barack H. Obama signed into law.
Government officials protecting union interests over those of GM and Chrysler bond holders during bankruptcy proceedings, forcing investors to accept millions of dollars in losses in direct violation of bankruptcy laws, money to which they were legally entitled.
Spending $23 million of taxpayer money through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to support a constitutional referendum in Kenya in spite of the Siljander Amendment, which makes it illegal for the U.S. to lobby for abortion in other countries. The Kenyan referendum was partially written by Planned Parenthood and is designed to legalize abortion in that nation.
Barack H. Obama’s canceling of 77 properly filed oil field development contracts approved by the Bush administration by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, preventing the extraction of up to 3 trillion gallons of oil buried under Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and North Dakota, more than enough to end our dependence on foreign oil and supply the U.S. with its energy needs for hundreds of years at current consumption rates.
We can also talk about the Solyndra scandal and how much taxpayer dollars were given to them that they wasted and then, shortly went out of business! There are other such similar scandals in the “green” energy endeavor.
The worst crime of all that Barack H. Obama has perpetrated against the American people is the economic tyranny his socialist policies have wreaked upon our nation. While Obama has been living the life of a king including frequent 5 star vacations, dozens of concerts at the White House and endless rounds of golf, all paid for by taxpayer money—the increased transportation and security costs alone are in the millions of dollars—he has called for the rest of us to endure economic sacrifice. The annual trillion dollar deficits and borrowing of 41 cents of every dollar of federal spending by Obama has led to unsustainable and catastrophic national debt.
And WORST of all, Republicans in the House ARE NOT PROTECTING the people’s right to free speech!! Personally saw and heard this on Tuesday, April 24, 2012. News title: New Law Makes Protesting Near the President Illegal; Judge Napolitano Calls It an ‘Assault on Free Speech’. All but 3 representatives in the House voted for this! SHAMEFUL!! Do you even KNOW the Constitution?
Regrettably, this list could go on and on. And unfortunately you know as well as We the People what is going on in this current government administration. Why are you NOT fighting for the people?
Recommended Punishment and Penalties
The most significant attributes of the U. S. Constitution are the establishment of the rule of law, the creation of a federal system with an exemplary national government, the separation of government powers into three branches that provide checks and balances for each other, its flexibility and the formation of a republican form of government.
In addition, if the people who commit crimes are subject to penalties, there should be no difference in the penalties for government officials. Clearly, the current administration has violated their oaths of office and the Constitution, being the supreme law of the land. No One Is Above the Law! Therefore, this proposal suggests the following:
Tyrannical and treasonous actions on behalf of any government official is a crime, and is punishable by fines and imprisonment as designated by a jury of their constituents and peers, namely the non-elected people of the United States of America of whom these officials are elected to represent.
Likewise, government officials averting or violating their Oaths of office are considered to be tyrannical and/or treasonous behaviors.
Any corruption committed by a government official is considered tyrannical behavior.
It is our firm belief that governmental officials should abide by the same laws as the People of the United States of America. As our representatives, governmental officials should be expected to hold the People in high regard. Appointed officials are required to take an Oath of Office as elected officials do. Responsibility and accountability to the People of the United States of America should be taken very seriously by anyone holding a government position. We the People hold our Constitution in high regard and expect no less from those serving in government positions.
This is OUR COUNTRY and we want the respect that was given us by our Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution.
On January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government. Human beings are people; corporations are legal fictions.
We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.
The Supreme Court is misguided in principle, and wrong on the law. In a democracy, the people rule. We Move to Amend.
~Supreme Court Justice Stevens, January 2010
Whereas, government of, by, and for the people has long been a cherished American value; and the people’s fundamental and inalienable right to self−govern, and thereby secure rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit of happiness is guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence; and
Whereas, free and fair elections are essential to democracy and effective self−governance; and
Whereas, corporations are not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution, and the people have never granted constitutional rights to corporations, nor have the people decreed that corporations have authority that exceeds the authority of the people of the United States; and
Whereas, corporations are artificial entities, created for the purpose of conducting commerce inside and outside of our country’s borders and should be designated as such, and
Whereas, interpretation of the U.S. Constitution by appointed Supreme Court justices to include corporations in the term “persons” has long denied the peoples’ exercise of self−governance by endowing corporations with constitutional protections intended for the people; and
Whereas, the illegitimate judicial bestowal of political rights upon corporations usurps basic human and constitutional rights guaranteed to human persons; and
Whereas, corporations are not and have never been human beings, and therefore they do not vote in elections and should not be categorized as persons for purposes related to elections for public office; and
Whereas, the recent Supreme Court decision, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, that rolled back the legal limits on corporate spending in the electoral process creates an unequal playing field and allows unlimited corporate spending to influence elections, candidate selection, and policy decisions, and to sway votes, and forces elected officials to divert their attention from the peoples’ business, or even vote against the interest of their human constituents, in order to ensure competitive campaign funds for their own re-elections; and
Whereas, tens of thousands of people, organizations, and municipalities across the nation are joining with the Move to Amend movement to call for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to abolish corporate constitutional rights and the doctrine of money as free speech;
Now, therefore be it resolved that the members of the governing body of this local municipality, call on the North Carolina General Assembly to petition Congress that the U.S. Constitution be amended to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutionally protected political speech.
The instability of the political situation in Egypt may deteriorate if women's rights are not stipulated within the new Egyptian constitution.
Whichever regime rules Egypt must respect women's rights.
The collective political establishment has betrayed the British people by transferring our national sovereignty to a foreign power without our consent. This is in defiance of our constitution and an act of treason.
For the past several decades the British people have been treated with extraordinary and total contempt by the collective political establishment. It has not mattered which political party has been in office or “power” as they insist on calling it, nothing ever changes. We are continually subjected to the same global agenda. We have been used and abused like pawns in their game of supremacy in which a dynastic ruling class see themselves as ordained to rule as masters – with impunity, whilst we the people, as virtual slaves, are supposedly destined to obey – without question.
They have persistently and consistently undermined our democracy by agreeing to treaties with foreign political elites who have no business in our affairs.
They accommodate tyrants, dictators, arms dealers and all manner of dubious characters, with whom they are happy to keep company. They turn a blind eye when the smell of money wafts their nostrils… it suppresses the stink of corruption and evil. Their moral compasses are defunct… their values deplorable and motives despicable. Our soldiers die to service their corporate agenda – their blood is on their hands.
We have seen our three billion annual fishing industry handed over to foreign control for nil reward. Our farms no longer feed us, crippled by regulations made to favour foreign farmers. Our ship-building has been dismantled and our merchant fleet whittled to nothing. Our armed forces are under strength and we see foreign troops being trained on our own soil on the pretence that they may be needed to protect us… when the reality is they are being trained to subdue us… to protect you from our vengeance. Our children are victims of social engineering in the schools and declining standards of education. They are being sexualised by explicit exposures before they have the emotional maturity to be able to cope. They are destroying their minds and their childhoods.
They deny us our rights and our freedoms and contemptuously imply that they can provide us with a new Bill of Rights. Would we seriously trust a thief with our wallets? They have corrupted our courts by appointing judges who are contemptuous of our common law.
It is our intention to govern ourselves… we do not seek their permission – this is our right. They have had their opportunity and they have failed. We will take control of our own lives in stages, as and when it suits us. Our numbers will grow as we show by example that prosperity is the natural consequence of honest and fair governance. We will expose them for the criminals they are.

Our forefathers established this country with a Constitution and Bill of Rights that are supposed to provide us with fundamental rights. Every candidate for political office, every elected official, and every government employee should be willing to commit in writing to always defend our fundamental rights. Sadly, many do not -- people in all parties and people in no parties.
GRIP, the Government Reform & Integrity Platform, is a non-partisan coalition of organizations and people who simply seek honesty and our fundamental rights from government. This all that we stand for, and getting signatures from our fellow Americans will be used to send a message to every candidate, elected official, and government employee.
GRIP is also asking every candidate to sign a contract, and we ask every American voter to vote only for candidates who sign the Contract agreeing to always be honest and protect our fundamental rights.
We ask you to vote only for people who say they will be honest and remain accountable - regardless of party. Dishonesty is the fundamental problem with government today. We must all do something about it, and signing this petiiton is quick, easy, and important.
Every candidate for political office, every elected official, and every government employee should be willing to commit in writing to always be honest.
Our forefathers established this country with a Constitution and Bill of Rights that are supposed to provide us with fundamental rights. Every candidate for political office, every elected official, and every government employee should be willing to commit in writing to always defend our fundamental rights.
This is what this petition provides. GRIP, the Government Reform & Integrity Platform, is a non-partisan coalition of organizations and people who simply seek honesty and our fundamental rights from government. This all that we stand for, and getting signatures on this petition is our mission.
Everyone should be willing to sign this petition, but dishonest candidates and government officials will be unwilling to sign because the contract provides that they may be removed from office if they violate the petition contract.
GRIP will ask every American voter to vote only for candidates who sign this Contract. Platform First - Party Second. Let's vote only for people who say they will be honest and remain accountable - regardless of party. Dishonesty is the fundamental problem with government today. This Contract can make a difference.
As a Christian constitutional father, engineer, author, and theoretical physicist, back bitten by our government, economy and society during a lifetime of 'family' court abuse, the author of Seventy Times American discovers the problems within these systems, and the corruptions that they have caused.
And he now has the solutions to solve these and many other problems on a national scale to save the next generation from there known consequences.
Don't take my word alone for what ACTA is really threatening. Go look it up. Search it on google. Look at the injustice. We must fight for our right to have privacy on our personal computers. We should fight for our right to not be monitored every time we switch on our computers.
Just because a few people with deep pockets are angry with the internet, doesn't mean that the government has the right to take away our constitutional rights.
Like I said don't take my word for it, go see what the news and your searches and everything else tells you.
Kenya National Youth Association (KeNYA) is a national voluntary, nonpartisan, and membership-based empowerment organization whose mission is to “Serve the Nation and empower the in and out of school youth with skills and know-how as well as teach and engage them in creativity, innovation, volunteerism and civic education in the areas of democracy, human rights, entrepreneurship, independence, peace and non-violent conflict resolution, and to combat negative ethnicity in rural-urban Kenya’’.
Under the Kenya Democracy Project(KDP),a program Promoting Peace, Community Service, Interdependence & Non-violent Conflict Resolutions, KeNYA and partners are implementing a Civic and Voter Education Project /Every VOTE Count Project (GOTV Campaign) with an overarching and overriding goal of educating the youth about the Constitution, Voter Registration, and Voting Rights. We believe that for Kenya to avoid violence, the votes of every voter must be counted, and that the process must be free and fair.
Furthermore, the citizenry including the Kenyan Diaspora, must be fully educated about the elections, and the electoral laws and rules that will govern the Electoral Process for Presidential, Gubernatorial, Senatorial, Parliamentary, and Women/County Representative seats.
Effectively, KeNYA has embarked on the 12 Month (January 1-December 31 2012 Period) Every VOTE Count Project 2012 (GOTV Campaign), where we shall educate everyone about the electoral process, without bias, partisanship, or inclination, beginning with a Petition:
‘We, the Undersigned members of Kenya National Youth Association (KeNYA), partners, and the stakeholders, call upon the free and patriotic citizens of the Republic of Kenya, the Government, the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC), to conduct a FREE and FAIR Elections in 2012 General Elections, free of violence, with sufficient CIVIC EDUCATION, and where EVERY VOTE will be COUNTED, including that of the YOUTH, WOMEN, DISABLED, and most important, that of the Kenya Diaspora, in the eyes of the Civil Society, Local and International OBSERVERS’’

Per the New Kenyan Constitution
Section 82(1): Parliament shall enact legislation to provide for—(e): the progressive registration of citizens residing outside Kenya, and the progressive realization of their right to vote.
Kenya’s newly elected Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission board recently visited Kenya Diasporans in the USA. In the various cities they visited, the Chief Electoral Officer ( CEO ) James Oswago, repeatedly pointed out that the purpose of their trip was to pick Diaspora minds on how to move forward with the voting process for the Diaspora since the new constitution gave Kenyan citizens outside the country the right to vote. The ironic thing is that he would then be followed on the podium by chairman Isaack Hassan, who would sing a totally different song and instead of trying to pick Diaspora minds, would go right into declaring what they felt was the best way for Diaspora Kenyans to vote.
He ruled out online voting and several other methods and seemed firmly set on stating that they would recommend Diaspora Kenyans travel to vote at the Embassy and consulates in Los Angeles and New York. He also mentioned that the Embassy officials would act as voting agents. He also said diasporans would only be able to vote for the presidential race and not any other races. If implemented, this process will hinder free and fair elections by Kenyans in the Diaspora for several reasons, two main ones are mentioned below:
*In the USA, the average cost of travelling to any of the said cities, along with accommodation will be upwards of USD $500. This process will have to be done twice: For voter registration and for voting. This in essence prevents any Kenyan citizen without approximately $1000 USD to spare from voting, which means the election is NOT free. Outside the USA, there are several other large countries with large Kenyan populations that will face the same dilemma e.g. Canada, India, Australia, e.t.c.
*Ambassadors to the Kenyan Embassy and missions are political appointees. Having them serve as voting agents would be a conflict of interest and this does not promise a FAIR election process
Per the constitution:
Section 82 (2): Legislation required by clause (1) (d) shall ensure that voting
at every election is—
(b) transparent; and
(c) takes into account the special needs of—
(i) persons with disabilities; and
(ii) other persons or groups with special needs.
All the above would be violated if they proposed a measure to require Kenyans to fly to the 3 states to register and vote.
When these concerns were brought up, the IEBC board then resorted to using different tools of manipulation by playing with the word “Progressive” which is used in the constitution clause. In essence, the word progressive was now being used as a weapon, as he said that the term progressive gave them the power to rule out any process they felt could not be implemented within the time frame they have.
What this means is that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission can wake up tomorrow and give the minimal effort to enable diasporans to vote, and say that it will be a progressive progress, as long as at least a small bunch can vote in 2012. Their words seem to hint at them planning to do just that, hence the ridiculous suggestions that hundreds of thousands of Kenyans converge on a tiny embassy or consulate on a single day to cast a vote in an election overlooked by a political appointee.
We REJECT this attempt at manipulation of the constitution to deny us our right to freely and wilfully vote.
We demand that the Kenyan Government explore all options available to ensure the most convenient voting process is set up, preferably online voting. If online voting cannot be implemented and we have to resort to specified Diaspora polling stations, there should be a process in place to ensure that polling stations are conveniently spread out in accessible locales where Kenyan citizens living abroad can travel to vote without incurring any expenses. For the USA, some of these cities (which have large populations) include:
Kansas City, MO
Other diaspora cities across the world TBD
The Kenya govt can swear in voting officers from the hundreds of thousands of diaspora abroad if need be. Do not deny us our right to vote

We the people of Ireland have stood by long enough as the EU dictates how we live our life, We the people demand you change our constitution so we can vote on every issue the EU tries to legislate in Ireland as we are noticing our sovereignty slipping away from us, Well we want it back.
The banking bailout and the recession that followed including the IMF bailout to the people should have been voted on by the people.
GNU’s 3 years of failure: we Demand an end, because we have Economic stagnation, poor service delivery, political tension and uncertainty as well as sustained massive looting of national coffers. These remain the topical issues assailing Zimbabweans as the controversial Global Political Agreement (GPA) marked three years on the 15th September 2011.
When the GPA was signed by Zanu PF’s Robert Mugabe and the two MDC Morgan Tsvangirai and Arthur Mutambara now Ncube representing the Zimbabweans have seen nothing tangible in terms of issues the scandalous coalition government was supposed to work on achieving.
Three years after the signing of the agreement, the reformation agenda has been failing to get the required impetus due to the hypocrisy, selfishness and arrogance of all the parties involved in the Government of National Unity (GNU). Much time has been spent on squabbling and fighting for positions by Mugabe, Tsvangirai and Mutambara, at the expense of working on extricating the nation from the abyss of mismanagement, looting and corruption.
Contrary to stupid, false claims by members of the GNU, the country’s economy remains subdued and affected by low productivity, liquidity crisis and the terrible effects of power cuts on the manufacturing sector. There is no substance to the claims that there has been ‘revival’ of the economy by the GNU failures. Unemployment in Zimbabwe remains at unacceptable levels of over 80% and the few that are working continuously grapple with the effects of very low incomes. Water and power problems are just the tip of the iceberg that is more aptly embodied by the long-standing malaise at Air Zimbabwe as well as other institutions at the mercy of the greedy GNU looters to prove the huge failure to improve the macro-economic fundamentals.
If anyone still believed the hullabaloo and lies about the so-called ‘national healing and reconciliation’ programme, the recurrence of political violence involving the same parties in the GNU rubbishes this charade. Recent violent clashes involving Mugabe and Tsvangira’s thugs at parliament merely exposed the reality of how Zimbabwe has remained haunted by the demon of political uncertainty and tension, which as we all know, works in favour of violent, blood-thirsty dictators.
Zimbabwe’s rural areas are still gripped by state-sponsored terrorism that makes poor peasants lose their dignity and humanity. Finally, it is only instructive that all three years down the line, the GNU charlatans still up to now waste time on ‘negotiations’, thereby showing this has been a huge failure.
GNU must come to an end and we are about to embark on a national programme of mobilizing Zimbabweans to protest peacefully in demand of an end to the circus of Mugabe, Tsvangirai, Mutambara.
Our position is this:
1-constitutional process to end by November 2011
2-election date must be set by end of November 2011
3-diaspora vote: diaspora must be allowed to vote

It is the civic duty of every citizen to hold their government accountable when it betrays the public trust and when it demonstrably fails to exercise its prescribed powers. When those elected behave as though they are above the law and abandon their Oath of Office to uphold and defend the Constitution, it remains for the people to demand justice for the wrongs committed against them.
The Indian Trail Town Council, and staff, have continued to engage in unethical, unlawful, immoral, and illegal actions. The following list of offenses provides sufficient probable cause to investigate the culture of corruption that pervades local government, which endangers the people's unalienable rights to “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
The intent of this petition is to begin the process of restoring an open and transparent government to the Town of Indian Trail, North Carolina.

The sidelining by Cabinet and the National Assembly of Kenya of the Commission for the Implementation of the Constitution, whose duties are clearly defined and enumerated in Article 262 of the Constitution (Sixth Schedule on transitional and consequential provisions) and was established by the Constitution to among others act as the peoples watchdog in ensuring the constitutionality of all supporting legislation while acting as liaison between non-state actors and the state, is mischievous, in bad faith and an affront on our sovereignty and will as the people of Kenya, and the supremacy of the Constitution of Kenya.
We the People, by our individual votes and signatures below, instruct the President of The United States of America to Sign into Law and thereby Amend the Constitution with the Congressional Reform Act of 2011.
We are declaring a moral separation from the current ruling administration and the policies it is currently enacting which is diminishing our liberties.
Moral Declaration simply means:
- Declaring our willingness and our ability to no longer support the current administrations decisions.
- Asserting our stance under ‘Redress of Grievances’.
- Affirming that in good faith and trust-
- We are done giving them moral support!
• We are presenting the new Moral Declaration of Independence with grievances in accordance with the United States Constitution and current U.S. Code of Law.
• We openly recognize that we have shared the intent and the spirit of the original Declaration of Independence.
• The original document was a declaration of war; however, at this time that is not the direction that America can withstand.
• Its strength and spirit is as viable today as when first written. (We intentionally utilized much of the original writings.)
• This document, as a petition with signatures will be taken to and registered in Washington D.C.
The cornerstone of our constitutional Republic has been the Declaration of Independence. The men who founded this great nation knew that those who rule must be of the character that recognizes that we will all stand before the God of heaven and be held accountable. These founders also knew that the ruling class often forgets this fact. We have been given the right to reset to the original intent of this founding document.
Now is the time… for all patriotic citizens to stand up and be counted.
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 33:12).
The purpose of the United States constitution is to limit government intrusion into citizens' lives.
Treaties have the authority to take away any "guaranteed" right granted in the constitution of the United States.
