1. Michelle Obama for president 2020

I personally think she would be a great President for the United States and would do great things for the American public and around the world!

Let's make a change that we as Americans need and with the world together we can make history again!

2. End the US Electoral College - Use Popular Vote to Elect our President

The Electoral College was created when our country was just forming. It was created and added as the 12th Amendment to our US Constitution mainly because to use a popular vote wasn't very practical. The nation's land area was vast, the population was small, and very spread out. The former democratic models, such as Rome and Greece, would divide the land-owning men into groups, and each group of 100 got to represent 1 vote. This is the basis for the Electoral College we still use today. To read a full hisotrical perspecive, go to: http://uselectionatlas.org/INFORMATION/INFORMATION/electcollege_history.php

We now live in a world where almost everyone has access to learn a great deal about the candidates we elect. That was not the case in the 1700's, 1800's, and maybe even as short of a time ago as 100 years. Since we now have television, internet, 24 hour news in many formats, etc, as well as very reliable transportation, safe roads, and a much larger and better educated population than we did even 100 years ago, I am starting a petition to ask our Senators, Representatives, and state Governors/Governments to trust the vote of the people, the popular vote, and modify the 12th article of the US Constitution to allow the popular vote winner to become the President of the United States, and abolish the Electoral College System.

3. Prosecute Obama for War Crimes in Syria, Libya, Iraq and elsewhere

We, the people of the world, want justice for the war crimes that the US has committed in the Middle East.

That is why we want to see the President of the United States of America, Obama, in an international criminal court for war crimes, to have a tribunal hearing for the thousands of lives that were unnecessarily lost under his mandate, on his orders.

4. Tell Congress to Consider Merrick Garland for Supreme Court Justice

Nestled deep inside the world's most famous document lies Article II Section II Clause II of the United States Constitution. While not one of the more famous sections of the revolutionary document, it nevertheless provides crucial information to the workings of our national government. "[The President] shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint...Justices of the Supreme Court." Written so simply, there would seem no reason for controversy; the President must nominate a Justice to fill a Supreme Court vacancy, with the Senate reviewing his choice. Should they approve, the President has the authority to officially appoint said nominee to Justice of the Supreme Court.

For 229 years, no matter partisan on personal politics, the Senate has never failed to uphold this duty. While many Supreme Court nominees have failed, each has done so after Congress has decided, with much discussion and debate, that said candidates lacked some quality necessary for the job. Of course, some motivations were undoubtedly motivated by partisan politics. Yet all the same, even those as polarizing as Robert Bork were given a chance to prove their candidacy, and ultimately, a vote.

On March 16, 2016, just over a month after the untimely death of Justice Antony Scalia, President Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland to the fill the open post of Supreme Court Justice. Mere hours after the nomination, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell announced he would not even meet with Garland. Many Senators, including Ted Cruz of Texas and James Inhofe of Oklahoma, followed suit, announcing that they "would not consider" any nominee put forward by Mr. Obama.
These actions are not only unprecedented, but also conflict with the very wording of the Constitution. According to Article II.II.II, the Senate must "advise" the President on Supreme Court nominees. While they are not obligated to accept any nominee, the refusal of this Senate to consider or even meet with Mr. Garland violates the principle crafted by our founding fathers.

As the supreme law of the land, the Constitution these Senators must be required to meet and consider Mr. Garland in order to successfully advise President Obama, no matter if they approve his nomination or not. And by not fulfilling these responsibilities, the 114th United States Congress is violating the principles that this great country was founded on.

And so it is for this reason that I create this petition today, to restore order to our nation's capital and ensure that, no matter the partisan divisions, our representatives fulfill their duties set forth by the United States Constitution. Should their actions go unchecked, the risk for a dangerous precedent of overriding the Constitution for political gain exists, something that threatens to undermine the very foundation that this great country was built on.,

5. Third term for Obama

Due to the lack of trust and confidence the American people have in the current presidential candidates, we the people would like to amend the Twenty Second amendment to allow the current sitting president to run for a third term.

6. Give Garland a Hearing

After the death of Antonin Scalia in February this year, there has been a gap in the Supreme Court leaving only eight Justices serving instead of nine. This fact fractures the functionality of the Court, allowing for ties to settle precedents back down to lower courts. President Barack Obama has put forth a nominee to fill this gap: Merrick Garland, currently the chief judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. He has over 25 years of legal experience but has been denied a hearing by the Senate of the United States to consider him.

The Constitution speaks on this as well. Article II, Section II states, “and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint… Judges of the supreme Court…”. This shows the responsibility and job of the President to nominate Justices and the obligation of the Senate to provide advice on the decision. By not allowing a hearing, the Senate is denying any possible feedback on the Constitutional obligations of a sitting President. It is their duty to hold a hearing to, at a minimum, give advice on the current nominee.

7. #obama2016 - President Obama for another Term

It is time we the people, the future of this world take a stand for the right change.

Time we use our power as the nations of the world to keep the greatest president and friend to all nations in the White House for another term.

#obama2016

Let's be the difference. Let's be the world peace. Let's be the people of the world.

8. Stop Obama's Supreme Court Nominees

Petition to block any Supreme Court Nominees until next Congress & President is sworn in.

9. Do Not Allow a Vote on Merrick Garland

With the passing of pro-life Justice Antonin Scalia, political discussion has turned to his replacement. Thankfully, Justice Scalia was one of the minority of justices who disagree with Roe v. Wade and its 43 years of virtually unlimited abortions.

Unfortunately, President Barack Obama is looking to pack the Supreme Court with another pro-abortion extremist who will keep abortion on demand in place for another 43 years. He has nominated liberal appeals court judge Merrick Garland, who would be another reliable pro-abortion vote.

The Senate must not hold a vote on garland's nomination, but instead should wait until a new president takes office. That allows the American people to select a new president and determine the course they want the Supreme Court to take on abortion.

We call on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to not schedule any vote on Garland's nomination. Such a promise prevents Obama from selecting a third pro-abortion Supreme Court justice to follow Sonia Sotomayor and Elana Kagan, both of whom are thoroughly committed to unlimited abortions and upholding Roe v. Wade.

10. Release all UFO Information by US Government

There have been thousands of UFO and alien sightings throughout history in the US and the people have the right to know what the Government knows.

11. Stop the IRAN DEAL in CONGRESS

The Iran Deal is a bad deal meant to keep Iran from producing and using Atomic Weapons. This is a bad deal because it takes 24 days to even begin to check on an area in Iran where it is suspected of producing Atomic weapons and it does not allow inspections on approximately 50 military bases.

Furthermore, Iran will receive billions of dollars near the beginning of the deal and they are likely to use this for more terror, and for obtaining more weapons.

12. Remove Obama from Office

The president is out of control, and continuously breaks laws, and violates the Constitution of the United States.

He makes deals with terrorist nations, and puts the people and the nation at risk on a daily basis.

He is the largest single threat to national security our country has ever had!

13. ISIS is a Group of Islamic Terrorists

The Obama administration and President Obama on every news broadcast, and State of The Union and other interviews will not identify the enemy as what it truly is.

To identify the enemy in spoken word defeats the enemy as well as justifies a military plan to be put into action.

14. Calling on President Obama to visit Kenya this year (2015)

Barrack Obama Senior was a Kenyan.

His son, Barrack Obama Jnr is today President of the USA.

Since moving into the oval office Obama hasn't visited Kenya (no ther American President ever has).

This petition seeks to make Kenya proud - we wish to host an American president for the very first time this year (2015)

15. Thank you President Obama

Thank you Mr. President for:

- Derailing another great Depression & returning economic growth.

- Keeping the dignity of your office intact while so many others disgrace theirs.

- Representing and upholding our core ideal of equality & fair play, while surrounding you are so many that see neither.

- Maintaining your poise & manners under fire while fellow lawmakers forget theirs, based on the color of your skin.

- Providing millions of Americans with real health coverage

- Believing the United States of America and not just profits - YOU kept the auto industry alive and well. Something your opponent would not have done.

- When you use the word 'heritage' It represents our best ideals, unlike others
that use it as code for 'white supremacy'

- Not only taking out Osama bin Laden, & not making an ugly trophy of it - Yes Mr. President you made the call.

- Working to return us to the land of opportunity & upward mobility again, & ironically not an old-style European aristocracy that 'trickle-down' economics has brought us to.

- Being willing to cooperate and make the republic our founding fathers created actually work, again unlike so many of in Washington. We see this...


All the statements above are self-evident to us.

16. Indian ID for Undocumented Indians in USA

I would like to bring to your notice the issue relating to some 450,000 undocumented Indians living in USA and how our Indian government can be helpful to them by providing NEW passport as well as required legal documents necessary for them to take advantage of recent immigration executive actions announced by President Obama.

Me and my friends are advocating for some 225000 - 275000 undocumented Indians who came to USA undocumented (some smuggled and others flew on fake identity) from villages in India in order to escape poverty and support their families back home in India. NO ONE WOULD LEAVE HIS OR HER OWN COUNTRY AND MIGRATE TO UNKNOWN COUNTRY UNLESS HE REALLY HAD NO OTHER CHOICE. Most of these undocumented Indians in USA do not have time, knowledge, or resources to get in touch with Indian politicians and government officials and explain their problem or grievance resolution.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

17. Troops for Defense Only, Not for fighting Ebola

During the past several months, exposure to Ebola hemorrhagic fever in several nations has increased to startling levels. It is reasonable to believe that if this virus is not properly contained, it can spread to epidemic proportions. The Administration and the CDC, has refused to protect American citizens from the spread of this disease by not banning travel from these nations, as other responsible nations have done.

As a result, there have been several confirmed cases of Ebola that have been brought here and it appears that it may be spreading from state to state. As of the preparation date of this petition, the Administration has still refused to impose a travel ban from these highly infected nations, which would be a reasonable and responsible action. This is unconscionable and is imperiling every person in this country as it is certain that no one really knows or understands the means and methods of transferring the contagion from one person to another.

Now, inexplicably the Administration has announced it will be sending our troops to the most contagious and dangerous areas to “fight” the Ebola crisis. These troops have not been trained, do not have a medical background, and have been questionably equipped to successfully conduct a mission that at the time of this writing remains unstated.

Since their mission has not be declared - either to the public or to Congress, it is assumed that they will serve as policemen, border guards and quarantine enforcers - positions that are currently employed by the governments in those regions. The Administration’s actions is irresponsibly putting the lives our young men and women in jeopardy. In the event they contract this deadly disease, their loved ones will never see them again; in the event that they return home with the disease, the lives of their families and for that matter the entire country, will suffer as a result of this madness.. This is just not acceptable.

Sign the Petition:

Part I: This petition demands that Mr. Obama rescind his order to have American soldiers be sent to Ebola plagued regions. Those nations have the responsibility to prevent this virulent disease from spreading. America can help with funding and equipment, but not by unnecessarily endangering our servicemen who have nobly pledged their lives to protecting this nation. It would be unconscionable for us to sit back and allow these selfless patriots to be placed recklessly in endangerment - not even with so much as a mission statement, questionable protective gear, and proper medical training.

Part II: This petition also demands that flights to and from the infected nations be suspended immediately.

Part III: This petition demands that if Parts I and II are not implemented, the Congress of the United States must defund any transfer of American military personnel to Ebola infected regions for the purpose of Ebola containment.

18. Drill Baby, Drill

A minority of extreme environmentalists have initiated a petition to prevent the bringing of energy jobs to the coastal area of South Carolina. Their voices threaten the will of the 77% majority of the people of this state.

South Carolina has the ability to enter a boom economic period with the advent of new off shore drilling, with the environment being maintained and improved.

Energy production can and does work hand in hand with a clean environment.

Don't let the doom and gloom naysayers stifle your voice, economic well being and future prosperity. What they don't tell you, it's not just about cheaper gas and energy independence. It's also about the everyday products dependent upon petrochemicals. Everything from your daily vitamins, medicines, clothing, kitchenware, furniture, appliances, electronics and so much more! There is barely an item you encounter in your daily life that was not produced with a petrochemical. Yes, even your smart phone and iPad.

Sign the petition to bring energy jobs to South Carolina.

It is understood that:

The United States of America must achieve energy self sufficiency and reduction in reliance on foreign oil.

Less expensive off shore energy production excess can provide export profits and attract major industries to our shore.

Until green energies prove to be productive, reliable, affordable and efficient, we must rely upon the alternatives, such a offshore energy production, clean coal, nuclear and hydroponic sources.

South Carolina offshore drilling will produce thousands of new jobs and millions in additional tax revenue benefits. **(Until offshore surveys are completed and studied no concrete figures can be presented.)

The Gulf of Mexico platforms are highly prized by offshore fishing and diving tourist trips. They form an artificial reef teeming with life and generate for Louisiana alone, over 5,500 full time jobs and around $324 million annually. The reefs produce fish densities anywhere from 10 to 100 times than that of the sea floor, per Bob Shipp, professor at the Marine Sciences Department, University of South Alabama.



3000 of the current 3700 off shore US oil platforms are in the Gulf of Mexico, with 1/3 of the commercial fisheries in North America, situated in Louisiana. These platforms produce 80% of US oil and 72% of US natural gas.

Dr. Charles Wilson of LSU's Department of Oceanography & Coastal Science, states, "The fish Biomass around an off shore oil platform is 10 times greater per unit area than that for natural coral reefs." he adds, "Then to 30,000 adult fish live around an oil production platform in an area half the size of a football field."



In a study by Dr. Shipp, found that the northwestern part of the Gulf of Mexico was basically empty of stocks of red snapper for the 1st hundred years of the fishery. With the appearance of thousands of platforms, the western Gulf has become a major source of red snapper.

With SC off shore energy production, the state will experience and increase in not only energy production jobs, but also in the ancillary increase in tourism jobs, increasing fishing and diving tourism, job creation in housing and other supportive industries, as well as increased state and local tax revenues.

The oil rigs will not be seen from coastal communities, like the City of Beaufort, nor from the beaches of Hunting Island. They will be beyond the sight lines of beaches, approximately 75 to 100 miles off shore, in comparatively shallow water as opposed to the Deepwater-Horizon Well, which sits at 5,000 ft. The shallow depth will make the well easier to inspect, maintain and secure from potential accidents.

Island Packet, 8/25/2014, "Since 2010, two well-containment companies have developed technology that could quickly cap and contain a well blowout to prevent another Deepwater Horizon-scale disaster", said Erik Milito, a spokesman for the oil lobbyist American Petroleum Institute.

19. Halt illegal immigration in the USA

Americans are angry and want to know why illegal immigration is allowed to continue and why does Obama ignore the laws of our country.

Not enough Americans are standing up and speaking out.

Stand up and speak out against illegal immigration, and amnesty for illegal aliens.
Make a stand against those that would intimidate or threaten you into silence, it will likely be one of the last choices you are allowed to make for yourself in the ruins of what is left of America and the American dream.

We want Obama and the federal government to be accountable for their actions for illegal aliens over legal Americans.

Stop sueing states that try to pass laws to protect their citizens. Start doing what the states are trying to accomplish.

Amazing that when such a high percentage of American voters oppose illegal immigration, our legislators, state and federal, somehow never manage to do anything about it. That they're somehow deaf to the words of their individual constituents, probably because they're so busy spouting euphemisms like "comprehensive immigration reform" (aka "amnesty") and "hard-working families" (aka "illegal immigrants").

It is not my responsibility, it is not my community's responsibility, and it is not our federal government's responsibility to provide a haven for people that have violated our laws to come here and remain here. Any argument to the contrary is an argument for:

1. violating the laws of the US,
2. denying the right of sovereignty,
3. advocating for the rights of non-US citizens over US citizens, and
4. creating a false economy based on cheap labor that would not exist except for illegal "guest workers".

Stand up,speak out and take back America!

20. Solve The Illegal Immigration Crisis

I believe it is high time American citizens clarify where we stand on illegal immigration to our leaders. Our country is not a charity for the third world, and I refuse to allow my government to continue spending my money on illegal immigrants, unless it is used to enforce our immigration laws.

Currently, 20% of the American workforce is unemployed or underemployed, yet the government is doing nothing about stemming the flow of foreign labor into this country.

There are over 13 million illegal immigrants as well as 12 million legal immigrants here already. That means there are over 25 million foreigners here at the expense of American citizens. If they are here working, then they are taking jobs from American workers, and if they are not working, then they are riding on the backs of American workers.

Either way you slice it, American citizens are suffering.

21. Omnipresent God in You to guide you to revere all Unconditionally

Bring World Peace Now.

The Omnipresent God in all people is guiding all people in any given moment as to how to revere what or whom is before you in the moment. By looking beyond the outer façade or packaging of the relative world you can start to realize God is everywhere. When you realize God is everywhere you start to love all unconditionally. The highest form of love is not attachment but reverence to the indwelling God.

When you can feel love/ reverence towards all unconditionally you develop an understanding heart. You understand why people attach to the relative world and see the relative world as their source. Seeing the relative as their source is creating a false god. There is only one Absolute Source… God attach to that Source and release the relative.

Attachment to the relative is the cause of ALL STRIFE IN THE WORLD TODAY! The land is not ours, the resources are not ours, people, family, children are not ours, indeed our lives are not ours. They are all God’s in our trust. We are not our culture a macro mask aka persona, we are not our religion mask/ persona, we are not our language. We are to honor all as a part of God first and foremost and put all else as secondary. No matter what our role in life we are to honor the Omnipresent God in all.

THIS IS A CALL FOR ALL PEOPLE AND NOW MORE THAN EVER, ALL MILITARY PERSONNEL TO NOT BE PRESSURED INTO DISHONORING GOD IN ALL. IF AN ORDER DOES NOT REVERE GOD IN ALL IT IS NOT OF GOD. FOLLOW YOUR INDWELLING CONSCIENCE. TAKE YOUR ORDERS FROM GOD NOT EXTERNALS.

IN THE BEGINNING AND TODAY WAS THE WORD (RESONANCE). IF IT DOESN'T RESONATE AS REVERENT DON’T DO IT. YOU CAN BRING PEACE TO THE WORLD BY SURRENDERING TO GOD IN FAITH, IN ALL FAITHS. WE CAN COEXIST.

Jan Eric Prieditis

22. Solve the Immigration Problem and do what is in the best interests of American Citizens

Below is a copy of the petition/fax I will soon be sending to the President, congress, senators etc. and possibly other representatives.

But, keep in mind Immigration is, for the most part, a Federal issue so please no radical suggestions.

23. Send Obama to support the US team at World Cup 2014

The United States soccer team needs some support if it is to beat Germany and advance to the elimination rounds at this years world cup, and the team will continue to benefit from support after that.

The President attending a game would be a huge moral booster, and would help propel our team to victory.

24. Impeach & Prosecute OBAMA

Petition to impeach & prosecute Barrack Hussein Obama and his Cabinet for Aiding and Abetting the enemy (Releasing Terrorist and donating, 200 million dollars of Tax Payers money to a Terrorist Country, millions of dollars just to negotiate with Terrorist). And ignoring the VA's treatment of Veterans (resulting in deaths) while knowing about it before he even took office.

25. Keep VA Jobs in Downtown St. Louis

Recent news of General Service Administration (GSA) plans to relocate 800 well-paying jobs from Downtown St. Louis to an office park in suburban Overland, MO has come as a great disappointment to the leaders, residents and businesses of the City of St. Louis.

Hundreds of millions of dollars have been invested in revitalizing our once stagnant downtown; from investments in public transit to subsidies to developers of formerly vacant historic properties. Despite a loss of hundreds of thousands of people and jobs over the last 50 years and continued struggles with vacancy and crime, the City of St. Louis has never been more committed to its own rebirth. Civic and community leaders are hard at work at every level, from block captains to CEO, hashing out plans to make a more prosperous, livable, and sustainable city and region for generations to come.

To that end, we must not overlook the importance of a thriving central city and the role the State and Federal governments play in making this a reality.

26. Revise the SEVIS Law

A school may be approved for attendance by nonimmigrant students if it has both instruction in the liberal arts, fine arts, language, religion, or the professions and vocational or technical training.

In that case, a student whose primary intent is to pursue studies in liberal arts, fine arts, language, religion, or the professions at the school is classified as a nonimmigrant under section 101(a)(15)(F)(i) of the Act.

A student whose primary intent is to pursue vocational or technical training at the school is classified as a nonimmigrant under section 101(a)(15)(M)(i) of the Act.

27. Say No to changes to Rules of Engagement in Afghanistan

The new U.S.-Afghanistan security agreement adds restrictions on already bureaucratic rules of engagement for American troops by making Afghan dwellings virtual safe havens for the enemy, combat veterans say.

The rules of engagement place the burden on U.S. air and ground troops to confirm with certainty that a Taliban fighter is armed before they can fire — even if they are 100 percent sure the target is the enemy.

In some cases, aerial gunships have been denied permission to fire even though they reported that targets on the move were armed.

28. Repeal Obamacare

I know i didn't vote for this. Did you?

If you want Obama care repealed plz sign this petition.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), commonly called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or "Obamacare", is a United States federal statute signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. Together with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act, it represents a complicated and nasty regulatory overhaul of the country's healthcare system; cf. the Medicare and Medicaid,1965.

29. Demand SOLS Be Removed

We petition the government to work with the Department of Education to remove the SOlS. The State and Federal governments should be the one's in charge of students education. It would also help the economy because then you wouldn't need a "Department of Education".

Under the "No child left behind" Act students have been pressured to only pass SOLS, have had courses on how to pass them and even students scores affect how much (if any) of a pay increase teachers get.

We Demand that SOLS be removed and speak for the overwhelming majority of Americans that want to get rid of SOLS.

30. Recall you're vote Impeach Obama

Barak OBamas failure to lead the United States as a President, funding and the arming of terrorist crimes against humanity,use of the U.S Military during a million dollar vacation to Africa, Veterans kept out of their own memorial, Obama opens the national mall allowing Illegals to March an protest, our veterans deserve more respect, withholding death benifits to families of fallin soldiers, Obama put the U.S in 16 Trillion dollars wurth of depth, forcing health care on the people.

Even after 60% of voters wanted the health care law reformed Obama still Ignored the people... three weeks of government shut down Obama still will not negotiate, the government can not give the people anything it has not first taken from us... Benghazi, NSA spying, fast an furious gun scandle, the IRS scandle, return respect to the office of the Presidency tell Congress to Impeachment Obama.
