1. Treason: Charge Barrack Obama

We the people have concluded that Mr. Barrack Obama has repeatedly violated the people's trust in his ability to govern the House of the United States and has failed to carry out his oath of Office to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.

1. He has put the people in danger by lessening sanctions against Iran, which actively builds Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles which reasonably may be used against our allies and easily reach our nation's cities - without seeking Congressional wisdom - Article 9 - preserve.

2. The healthcare roll-out has hurt millions of Americans directly as well as other economic industries - again without seeking industry advice and has further failed to protect the privacy of these individuals and industries - Article 3 - protect.

3. Mr. Obama's autocratic form of government is elitist and goes against the basic principles of our government in simple terms: the Constitution, not an individual is the supreme law of the land - Article 6 - Mr. Obama refuses to defend.

3. Cut Duty in Pubs

Supermarkets sell cheap alcohol, sometimes at a loss, and less people are going to drink and socialise in Pubs. The high Duty on alcohol is causing many pubs to close at an alarming rate, every week. A Pub is a place in our community where you can socialise with friends, catch up on events, and meet new people.

Under age drinkers are not served alcohol in Pubs, which is a benefit to our community.

5. Cut the Fuel Duty

The Government makes billions of pounds from oil companies in tax on both the oil they extract and their profits. The Government also makes billions from motorists through car tax and VAT.

The government should reduce fuel duty as the price of oil rises which will maintain their revenues but also to help hard pressed motorists. If they fail to do so they are just being greedy.

It is interesting that no George Osborne has not expalined in detail why the Government cannot reduce fuel duty, there is merely a vague statment that it wouldbe difficult to implement.

Sign up to this and other petitions about the price of fuel to get MPs and ministers to take notice of how this is harming individuals, businesses and the wider economy.

6. Petition for free Map Packs on Call of Duty 2 and 3

The time has come for the map packs of Call of Duty 2 and 3 to be made free to the public. Several years have past since the popularity of these games was at it's peak. I feel it is time that they be made free to those who still play them.

It would be a very generous act of the publisher/developers for the players who continue to play the games. It may even rekindle the interest of other players who have left the game.

7. Support New Zealand's craft beer brewers

The Law Commission is encouraging the NZ government to consider raising taxes for all beer brewers to offset the social costs of irresponsible drinking. The Free House argues that this could put some small craft breweries out of business. This petition argues that a 'one size fits all' increase in taxation will have a disastrous effect on New Zealand's boutique breweries - and that these brewers are the ones we should be rewarding not penalising.

Why? Because small boutique and craft breweries emphasise taste, flavour and create environments that encourage sensible and responsible drinking. Craft beer is marketed on quality not price but it's a thin line between a 'premium' price and an 'unaffordable' price.

The big brewers can absorb increases in excise duty and afford massive advertising campaigns but the small brewers can barely afford to print a few posters and give out a few flyers. Craft brewers are occupying less than 3% of the total beer market - so tax breaks for them is not going to leave a big hole in government finances.

For the reasons above, The Free House will lobby MPs and other supporters of great New Zealand craft beers to give tax breaks to small Kiwi-owned brewers. Sign our petition if you want New Zealand's craft brewers to survive!

8. North West & Wales Fuel Protest 2008

Due to ever increasing price of fuel to the UK consumer and after the latest protest in London by Haulage companies for rebate on Fuel duty, we feel it is time for the General Public to make open their views to this Elected Government that they must reduce Fuel Duty before prices spiral out of control.

9. Make COD5 a sequal to COD4

According to SarcasticGamer, We may go to 1940's in the pacific. I think, since it is very unclear if Cpt. Price dies or not. I say, we get closure, and more time focused on the current war.

10. Workplace rights for Australian workers

It has been my experience that some employers in the disability sector can and do treat their staff any way they like, without having to answer to anyone or any supposed laws.

These employers need to be named and exposed.

11. Abolish all taxes, duties & fees except the GST

The Government promised to remove all other taxes, duties and fees once the Goods and Services Tax system can support itself.

We can see that they are posting Surpluses in the Budget over a number of years but so far have done nothing to abolish all the taxes, duties and fees - only marginal reductions.

Don't you think it is time that they are abolished now?
