I want to live in a world where children can go to school without fear of violence.
Where journalists are not threatened for reporting on human rights abuses.
Where people from different backgrounds use dialogue rather than violence.
Where police can be trusted to protect citizens.
Where families are not forced to flee their homes.
The American Government is out of control. They vote on a Bill that has so many add ons that it is ridiculous and make no sense. There should be One Bill One Vote. No add ons ie. $100,000,000 for cancer research that looks good to us citizens, but has add ons that include; $40,000,000 for turtle fences, 10,000,000 for flea inspections for dogs in what ever state, you know what I mean.
There should be a single bill for each vote with NO add ons and EVERY elected politician must vote either present or electronically, and the votes must be posted for all Americans to see.
No more back room deals and big dollar takes from the lobbyists.
The Minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs on 27 November 2012 informed Parliament that the Cabinet had decided that Kenyans living in the Diaspora will not be voting in the 2013 General Elections.
This was in spite of the chairman of IEBC having travelled and consulted widely over the last two years with the Kenyan Diaspora and repeatedly assuring them that they will be voting in the next elections.
H.E. the President himself during the visit to the UK in August reiterated that voting will be a reality.
The logistical, financial and time constraints that have been given as the main reason for this unfortunate occurrence are insufficient and incommensurate to the infringement of the democratic rights of Diaspora Kenyans.
We have been informed by chairman of IEBC that there are only 129,000 Kenyans registered with the Embassies and High Commissions outside of Kenya.
We now urge all Diaspora Kenyans to sign this petition to demand our right to vote and also demonstrate that there are more Kenyans in the Diaspora who are disillusioned with the Government of Kenya hence have never found the need to register with the foreign missions.
We need at least 1 million signatures.
The Electoral College was adopted when the population was not as large as it is today. I believe in the "Majority Rule". Thus removing the primary source of election of the President being majority. If the majority vote does not have a unanimous decision then proceed to the Electoral College. Doing so would ensure that every ones vote counts. Especially in states that are a majority one party.
When a state is a majority one party that party usually wins that state. Making citizens of that state that are not that party feel like their vote does not count. Removing the Electoral College would encourage more citizens to exercise their right to vote and have a larger turn out on election day. Please move forward on this issue as I am sure i'm not the only citizen that feels this way.
Please visit the link below to sign the petition on the White Houses website:
We need to ABLISH THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE! Not because Barack Obama won, but because it has happened 4 other times.
The Electoral College was good back in the day before there was television, radio and social media. People, then, elected others who were more informed to vote for them. This is now out-of-date because of technological advances making almost anyone more informed. This will force canidates to get in front of more rural communities than favoring more urban areas. Everyone else is voted in because of the popular vote; Why not the President!? This makes eveyone's voice count instead of them feeling like it doesn't!
JOIN ME IN SIGNING THIS PETITION TO ABOLISH THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE!
6. One Ballot
Vote across the aisles, crossing the boundaries of just Democrat, Republican, Independant, Constitutional, or Tea Party. On every Election, the civil right to vote on the candidates on the different tickets.
We, the voting electorate need to ensure that A fair Voting practice is in place for all U.S. citizens.
We affirm the right that no citizen should be kept from exercising their right to cast a vote in any election within the United State of America.
Under no circumstances should any party be allowed to stop any legal voter from voting.
Many people refuse to vote for religious and other reasons.
For example, because of John 17:14 and other passages in the Bible, Jehovah's Witnesses refuse to vote. In that verse, Jesus says of his followers: "They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world." Jehovah's Witnesses have interpreted that statement as a call to remain neutral in all political matters. (In some of the sect's literature, members are described as "representatives of God's heavenly kingdom"; they are thus obligated to stay out of local political affairs in keeping with the behavior of ambassadors.) Witnesses also refrain from serving in the military, running for public office, and pledging allegiance to the flag.
Other people refuse to vote for personal reasons or they are just lazy.
But really, we all have a duty to vote.
Facebook is the most used social network on the world wide web today with an average of approximately 1.01 Billion users per month. It's used to advertise, reconnect with family and friends as well as campaign for any political office.
Why not go one step further and allow the American people to cast the vote on Voting day via Facebook. You can pay bills, watch, television, go to school and so many other things via the Internet, why not make it easy for someone to cast their vote for their candidate via a secure app on Facebook.
There are so many Facebook users that would love to vote but for various reasons may not be able to physically get out to do it. Facebook would give them that chance. Facebook was flooded during the presidential debates. Imagine if every one of those users were able to cast their vote and really take part of their American Right. The turnout would be tremendous. The American voice would definitely be heard.
The market is satured of generes that are too bored. we need that the series Tenchu gone back with the players. So far we have only imitations of theese game that big moments made us feel in the past. Really the fans and the public in general will be grateful that these proyect can become in a reality.
El mercado está saturado de géneros que ya cansan, necesitamos que la saga Tenchu vuelva a los jugadores, hasta ahora no han habido más que imitaciones de dicho juego que grandes momentos nos hicieron sentir en el pasado, realmente los fans y el público en general estará agradecido de que este proyecto pueda convertirse en una realidad.
The helmet law in TN was enacted without the voters having a say. This act happens far too often and I want to change the way laws are made, repealed or changed.
I hope to have your support on this to let the government know that TN is our state, our government, our life, our right, and finally our choice.
The 2003 Nevada Legislature voted to automatically restore civil rights to first-time, non violent offenders upon expiration of their sentence or upon their honorable discharge from parole or probation.
Nevada felons typically have to wait 7-15 years before they can petition the court to get their records sealed which if approved would then provide the opportunity for restoration of civil rights.
Civil rights include the right to vote; the right to serve as a juror on a civil trial; in 4 years after discharge, right to run for and hold non-law enforcement and non-judicial elective office; in 6 years after discharge, right to serve as juror in a criminal case.
Once a convicted felon is released from prison they are expected to be integrated back into society and are required to pay taxes and follow the laws of the local community and state. Our judicial system has determined their debt to society has been paid sufficiently so that they are entitled to release from prison. No crime is ever desired in a community and felons can be murderers, predators of children and sometimes thieves who stole property in excess of $2500 or more, but they are granted freedom. Also, remember there are other systems in place such as sex offender registration, restitution, parole, and felon registration to provide oversight and ensure social order and cooperation from these known felons.
Voting was and is a civil rights issue that women and minorities had to fight for in the past. People fought because they knew how important voting was and is to our society. Voting gives people power to have a say in how they will be governed. Votes elect the politicians. Votes approve or cast down proposed legislation.
If the Nevada penal system sees a person fit enough to be the neighbor of you or I, then why shouldn't that person have a right to exercise their voice and opinions in the election processes in those communities or state? Otherwise, if the debt is not paid upon release then why are they released and when is it paid?
A great majority of those deprived from voting as felons are minority men. There has to be a starting point of restoration of dignity and pride in one's self and community. Clearly the prison's fail to rehabilitate because recidivism is extremely high.
There should be no exceptions: Restore civil rights after release from prison or sentence served for all felons in Nevada.

Do you want to prevent a strike? Do you think that tutorial sizes are too large? Are more TAs needed in our labs? Do you support fair wages, working conditions, and benefits for your TA's, instructors, and invigilators?
Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 3903 -- representing teaching assistants, contract professors, graduate assistants, lab assistants, exam invigilators, and writing ...instructors -- are currently in collective bargaining with the University administration. Their demands include:
• smaller tutorial and lab sizes to improve the quality of undergraduate education
• maintaining financial support for underfunded graduate students
• job security for academic workers
• affordable education
As undergraduate students, we understand that the quality of education we receive in our classrooms depends on the working conditions of those instructing us. Our tutorials are too large, our labs are understaffed, and poverty-line wages keep our instructors from being able to fully commit to our education. We also understand that these conditions are the same ones that will be experienced by many current undergraduate students who, in the near future, will be applying to graduate school. As fellow students, we need to support members of CUPE 3903 in their efforts to make the York University a better place for all of us to study and work at.
Our TAs, instructors, lab assistants, exam invigilators, and writing instructors continue to ask for a reasonable and equitable contract. They continue to bargain in good faith, with every effort being made to prevent a strike. Unfortunately, the University administration has been unwilling to agree to a fair contract, and its disregard has led members of the union to vote 66% in favour of a strike mandate.
The employer is forcing a strike to occur by refusing to bargain with academic workers, and offer semi-decent wages and job security. This move has placed the entire University community in a precarious position.
Clearly, the University administration can no longer claim to have the best interests of students in mind.
Join this group and help towards preventing a strike by forcing the York University administration to give a fair contract for our teaching assistants, instructors, contract professors and other academic workers. The admin is forcing the current strike.
This Facebook group, built by the "Students in Support of CUPE 3903" campaign, will serve two purposes in the coming weeks:
- We will be giving immediate bargaining and strike updates on the state of negotiations. These updates will additionally serve to update members of the University community about class cancellations, about how to deal with specific issues pertaining to a potential strike (such as procedures for assignments), and about potential avenues for acquiring tuition rebates from the University in the case that a strike should occur.
- We will be organizing student support campaigns for members of CUPE 3903 who continue to strive to reach a fair deal with the York University administration, despite the latter's decision to walk away from negotiations and refuse to give workers a fair deal.
Support the undergraduate campaign to stop the York admin from causing another strike!

With the Electoral College, someone who has a very low amount of popular votes can still be elected as President of our country.
No matter how many people may have been in favor of a specific candidate, the Electoral College can still decide whether or not he/she should be elected in the end. Does that sound fair to you?
I believe each individual can have ONE vote, and the popular vote of the many individuals should in the end add up and decide who is to become President.
Despite mixed reviews from critics, Napoleon Dynamite is a cult classic with memorable characters.
The TV show, even though very different, is very funny and brings back the talents of Jon Heder, Tina Majorino, Efren Ramiirez, Aaron Ruell, among others play their characters in a show that should get as much respect as the movie it was based off.
Bill Windsor is simply asking people to give him the opportunity to have his name on the ballot. This is all that a signature does; it is not an endorsement of Bill Windsor as a candidate.
Bill will be a great candidate. For more information, see http://www.VoteBillWindsor.com
Congress has now voted itself a total of $16,700 in raises over the last six years. Since 1990, congressional pay has increased from $98,400 to $154,700 in 2003.
"Members of Congress have the only job in the country whose occupants can set their own salary without regard to performance, profit, or economic climate," said Tom Schatz, president of the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste in a press release. "Clearly, members must think that money grows on trees.
"This underserved pay raise is no surprise, as the 108th Congress has shown a voracious appetite for spending," Schatz concluded. "It goes to show how out of touch with reality politicians can be. They forget that their salaries are paid by taxpayers. Americans are being forced to tighten their belts—if they even have a job—yet members of Congress will have an extra $3,400 to do with as they please.
I believe this is the ideal opportunity to decide what United Kingdom citizens collectively wish to happen with regard to Scottish Independence.
It costs the UK billions every year to support Scotland. Similarly Scotland would be left with huge debt following separation.
The implications are serious for all UK citizens so it should be the decision of all United Kingdom citizens.

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’’

By denying people who have felonies the right to participate in voting is discriminating and undemocratic. The bill to withhold these rights was created during the Jim Crow era. With the purpose of barring African Americans the right to vote. These laws are still impacting today's society.
Seven times the national average is African Americans who cannot vote due to felony convictions. Pass the Democratic Restoration Act now so the people who are convicted of felonies can vote by the 2012 Presidential Election.
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

As a Auto Accident Survivor, the repealing of Michigan No-Fault would be harmful to our Children, Family, Friends and Neighbors.
Without Michigan No-Fault, I would not have made it. My family would have suffered even more than they have and are still due to my medical impairments.
The statement that repealing Michigan No-Fault (The nations' PREMIER Auto Insurance) would save us money is nonsensical at best. As a fairly accurate statement, I can say that due to an auto-accident there has been "over" 15 surgeries to just one limb of mine (truly do not know the exact number, but would have been an amputee long ago without proper insurance that was a paid for "INSURANCE POLICY". Without No-Fault, or with "Limited" PIP coverage, this would never had happened.
What is worse than my injuries? Read below!
Drivers / Consumers / Voters have already selected NOT TO REPEAL NO-FAULT, NOT ONCE, BUT TWICE!
Our Votes matter - let our politicians know this!
Any attempt to repeal Michigan No-Fault is not the consumers choice, this is the lobbied Politicians Choice - trying to STRIP US of our PREVIOUS VOTES - SHAME ON THEM ALL!
Consumers choice would be by adding legislation allowing drivers to "OPT OUT" of NO-FAULT as it stands, and select a Tort like coverage. That is consumers choice people. Taking OUR VOTE AWAY IS NOT OUR CHOICE!
Repealing does not give the consumer any choice, except less coverage when needed. It only gives the VERY PROFITABLE INSURANCE COMPANIES the right to NOT allow the insured to receive appropriate treatment in the event of an accident causing serious injury.
Now they want to take our prior vote's away? This is not a a very democratic process, WE THE PEOPLE OF MICHIGAN ALREADY VOTED BY MAJORITY TWO TIMES!
We urge all citizens to sign the petition, seeking our governor not to support a change without first allowing the citizens, the opportunity to RE-VOTE! We already voted twice! Allowing them to repeal it without our vote, is clearly saying our vote's don't not count. This is not what our Government stands for, but it is what special interest groups stand for!
There is only one logical reason they would try to take our vote away AFTER we voted - ONLY ONE REASON - Profitable Insurance Companies trying to make more profit, and at the cost and possibly life of the consumer. Shame on them all! OUR VOTE COUNTS! LET THEM KNOW KNOW BY SIGNING OUR PETITION!
Protect our previous votes! Do not allow our previous VOTES to be NEGATED!! Act Now, before it is too late, what is next, they REPEAL VOTING RIGHTS?
Sign this crucial petition now!
***Michigan Registered Voters Only Please***
On 14 September 2011, The Prime Minister's office issued an Electoral Reform communique. However, no mention has been made on the right of Mauritians abroad to vote.
It is essential that every citizen gets an equal chance during an election.
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

This Labor government is dead in the water. It has lost its way… yet again. Its incompetence and arrogance has led it to be effectively at war with Australia. Its call to class warfare and attempts to divide and conquer Australians in order to enforce incompetent policies have failed.
Citizens, businesses and whole industries are now in unprecedented open revolt against its insane carbon tax, its brainless spendthrift programs and disastrous refugee policies. Labor now trashes our economy and neighbours with one bizarre political quick fix after another. Worst of all, it has no idea how to regroup and get back to governing and has no answers other than to pathologically project all its failings onto Tony Abbott. It no longer listens to it’s citizens and we no longer listen to it. It is now incapable of learning, condemned to repeat their bungling from East Timor to Malaysia, from roof insulation to TV set top boxes.
For it’s own sake and that of Australia, Labor needs to be removed from government and be allowed to disassemble and be reborn again. After all, it is not in our interest for Labor to self-destruct – we need two healthy and vibrant, competing political parties.

2011 is the year of revolutions. The year of the people. The world is uniting against oppression. South Sudan got their independence and other countries are getting rid of their dictators this year.
Now more than ever, is the perfect time to get rid of the dictator Meles Zenawi and grant true independence and freedom for the Ogaden. We cannot let this year pass us without having Justice for the Ogaden region. Let us free the Ogaden in 2011 too.
From January 9-15 2011, people from South Sudan voted on whether they should break away from Sudan and declare independence. On 30 January 2011, the results had shown that 98.83% of the population had voted for independence from Sudan. So they were granted independence.
It is time to let the people of Ogaden vote and decide if they want to break away from Ethiopia and declare independence too.The people of the Ogaden deserve to decide and vote peacefully for their freedom and true independence. Sign this petition if you think a referendum on independence for the Ogaden should be scheduled to be held sometime in 2011 too.

The Benefit cuts, the needless spending on unwanted things with our tax money, the privatization of our public sectors, the cuts on our council, the outright breach of human rights and the government smiling as they do so.
