Powerful Petition to regain control of the US government Please read, sign and share9:46 AM

I know this is a little off topic, but I think it is very important, and consistent with the goals of the people in this group.

If you have not already done so, PLEASE read and sign this petition, then help to get the word out. If it is spread wide, and signed enough, there is a chance it will make a difference.


As our forefathers warned 231 years ago, Prudence continues to dictate that a government long established should not be changed for light or transient reasons. However, the transgressions of the current administration against his own people and that against people of other countries are so serious and numerous in nature, that it becomes imprudent not to act immediately. We approach a form of absolute despotism of the kind suffered by our forefathers when they began their own revolution for reasons not dissimilar to ours...
WE, therefore, citizens of these United States, and citizens of the world, finding our appeals to our elected representatives to be ignored, do in our name, and in the name of all other true patriots and citizens of this country, solemnly declare that George Walker Bush is unfit to be president; that his vice president is likewise unfit for office, and that both of them are most likely guilty of a multitude of war crimes, crimes against the Constitution, and crimes against humanity. We hereby declare that their offices are now declared vacant and that they shall be delivered to the proper international court for imprisonment while the full nature and extent of their crimes are investigated and determined, thereafter which they will be tried for said crimes. We hereby commit to one another our best efforts to fulfill our forefathers' original intent, while removing the horrors of slavery, sex, race, religious and other forms of discrimination while we work together to repair the horrendous damage inflicted on our Country, its People and its Constitution.

I hope I am putting this in the correct place!

Thank you all for your help!!!!!

Our National Forests are NOT FOR March 19, 2006 3:44 PM

Plz on Monday this coming week Call your Senators in your state on the phone or go to their office to speak with them!

RE: Stop Funding Cuts for Tropical Forest Protection Thread

Please!! Persoanly Contact your senators by phone & Email. Sign Petitions if you have not!

This is a copy of what I sent to both my senators in my state. It varies on who you need to contact! Please find out who your senator is & Contact them by phone & email.

Dear Senator,

I am contacting you to ask you to oppose both the Bush Administration's plan to sell land from our National Parks and the Bush Administration's plans to reduce environmental protections for the remaining land in our National Parks.

I have Signed the petition below, and I beg you not to allow this to happen anywhere in the USA!

So far, 18,240 people have signed this petition, and I am sure many more will in the near future.

Please do not allow the Bush to destroy our nation's most beautiful natural areas! The millions of trees that will be cut due to this sale are homes to wildlife that will be left dead or homeless because of Bush's actions.

Please tell Bush our National Forests are NOT FOR

President Bush's statement that this is necessary to raise funds needed for rural schools is plainly just another of his nearly continuous lies. Our Federal government can raise these funds without having to sell off resources that will be lost forever. This is obviously merely another attempt by the Bush administration to give away our nation's wealth to Bush's cronies and supporters. President Bush is the most cynical and corrupt "leader" this country has had in many, many decades. I strongly urge you not to allow yourself to be a partner in his corrupt actions.

I moved to Maine because of this state's dedication to preserving the beautiful blessings of nature that we enjoy. As a representative of the people of Maine, I believe that it is your duty to extend our values as far as possible throughout our country and act to protect our Federal natural areas.

Signatures: 11,895 Stop the stealth attack on our National Parks!

Please at least look at these petitions and read what The People want. Please do not allow Bush and his avaricious associates to pillage the natural treasures of the people of our nation.

My Name Address ect...

I also told them that I am a registered Independant Voter when I called.

Demand a success strategy for Iraq(PETITION September 02, 2005 2:53 PM

Join 68,347 Americans and sign our petition!

It's time to develop a strategy that can succeed in Iraq, defuse the terrorist insurgency, and bring our brave men and women home.

We have no idea -- none -- how long the Administration plans to be in Iraq. Is it two years, ten, twenty? The President's message of "as long as it takes" is counterproductive, because it continues to fuel the terrorist insurgency. It is time for President Bush to send a clear message that we do not intend to remain in Iraq indefinitely or maintain permanent bases there. That doesn't mean we should set an exact date for withdrawal. But it does mean we need a general timeframe to complete the mission.

In 50 or 100 years, I hope historians will be able to look back and say that the summer of 2005 is when Americans brought credibility, accountability, and responsibility to a very tough situation.

I hope they say that we finally began to level with the American people. That we articulated a winnable mission and a detailed plan to fulfill it. And that we gave our troops the support they needed and deserved in Iraq and upon their return to our beloved shores.

We owe it to our soldiers, to the American people, to Iraqis, and, yes, to history, to do nothing less.

Please sign my petition to President Bush today! I want to take your signature with me when I personally deliver our petition to the White House when the Senate reconvenes in earlySeptember.

Send this petition to:
  • President George W. Bush

Sign the Petition of Redress. August 30, 2005 5:30 AM

Either the Bush Kids Put Their Lives on the Line for George's "Noble War" or the Troops Come Home.


To forward this petition to all your friends, relatives and colleagues, this petition, demanding that the eligible children of the extended Bush family, including the twins, serve in George's "noble war for a noble cause" or Bush must bring the sons and daughters of America home now.

"I demand that George W. Bush's daughters, and his eligible nieces and nephews, serve in Iraq to prove their support of Bush's 'noble war for a noble cause.' If the Bush family does not believe in 'sacrificing' for the war and is not willing to put their lives on the line, then Bush must bring the troops of middle class and poor Americans home now."

--> SIGN HERE <--

Your signature will be sent to the White House, media outlets, and Congressional leaders.

Like George did, the new generation of Bushes let other Americans do the dying for them.

Bush has derided the mothers and fathers of our nation's war dead for not wanting any more young American men and women to die in Iraq. "We owe them [the already killed and wounded soldiers] something," he told veterans in Salt Lake City (even though his administration tried to shortchange the veterans agency by $1.5 billion, according to Maureen Dowd). "We will finish the task that they gave their lives for."

BUSH EXTENDED FAMILY PHOTO taken January 20, 2005

Yet, not one -- not one -- of any of Bush's children or his nieces and nephews have volunteered for service in any branch of the military or volunteered to serve in any capacity in Iraq. Not one of them has felt the cause was noble enough to put his or her life on the line.

Here is the full list of the children of Bush and his siblings who have chosen to let other young men and women -- mostly poor, rural and minorities -- die for them, because they have no desire to die for George W. Bush's alleged "noble cause" (assuming an eligible age of 17 with parental consent to join the military):

Stand up for Iraqi Women -- by Aug 15th

Tell Secretary Rice why you are concerned for the rights of Iraqi women under Iraq's draft constitution and Sharia law

Personalize your letter, and let Secretary Rice know why you would like her to advocate on behalf of Iraqi women
Under Saddam Hussein, with all his brutal faults, Iraqi women enjoyed the MOST RIGHTS of any women in the Middle East: jobs and professions outside the home, equal education, no veil unless optional, and more. What an irony, that after all the bloodshed of a
U.S. invasion and occupation, the clock should turn BACK -- all the way to the Middle Ages -- for Iraq's women! They are RIGHTLY incensed at the U.S.

It is a total myth, that Iraqi women needed "liberating" by the
U.S. It is the SAUDI women, our Allies, who are not allowed to go out without veils, drive cars, or live normal 21st-century lives! Now Iraqi women have been raped, abused, tortured, and murdered by U.S. troops -- all so that the clock can be turned BACK for them, to the Dark Ages, and they LOSE the rights they HAD, that WERE EQUAL to those of western non-Muslim women!

The deadline for
Iraq's new Constitution is Aug.15th. Under that Constitution, imposed under the guns of U.S. troops, SHARIA ISLAMIC THEOCRATIC LAW will be imposed on Iraq's women for the FIRST TIME IN DECADES!!! Under Saddam, IRAQ WAS AN ENTIRELY SECULAR STATE NOT RULED BY ISLAMIC LAW! Now, the U.S. Occupation is obviously PANDERING to ultra-religious clerics, to try to gain SOME support for the U.S. puppet government {that is supposed to hand over the oil like a good little boy}.

Let's see 5 years into the Bush/Cheney leadership.. Let's review how our government is doing shall we?:

FACT #1. Turned the largest budget surplus in history into the largest deficit in American history.

FACT #2. Lied to the country to drag us into a bloody mess in Iraqnam, killing over 30,000 people, and responsible for the deaths of over 1700 Americans .. Tricked the United States to invade and start a war with no plan, no end, just more billion dollar requests.

FACT #3. Has created more hatred against the United States then any administration in history.

FACT #4. Has watched oil double in price, while offering no energy policy other than invading the country with a lot of oil.

FACT#5. Ignored all warnings about a possible 911 attack, resulting in the worst attack on American soil in a century.

FACT #6. Told us we must RUSH to war, now tells us we must be patient. Only time in American history, the U.S. has invaded a country not at war. (ok, Greneda is the exception)

FACT #7. Convinced the religious right that God loves war and killing is the way Jesus wanted it.

FACT #8. Had the second largest stock market melt down in history during their administration.

FACT #9. Claims to be fighting terrorism, but allowed a ban on assault rifles to expire.

FACT #10. Spent 7 minutes reading the goat story after being told "Sir, the nation is under attack"

Wow, what a performance... and amazingly, he was reelected (sort-of). What a fantastic performance ... Do any of you have anything else to add here? Was there anything positive at all?

Who would still be supporting this administration? Can you tell us why?

Do we really want our leaders lying to us to drag us into a war?
