We demand that the United States end its aggressive militarism, reform its criminal justice system, join the International Criminal Court, prosecute violators of treaties, and lead by example rather than hypocritical pronouncements.

We'd like to be able to applaud the U.S. State Department for condemning the Egyptian government's decision to murder over 500 people, without having to choke on the fact that the U.S. government has been killing thousands of people with drones, many of them civilians -- not to mention giving massive supplies of weapons to the abusive Egyptian government that it is condemning.

We'd love it if we could cheer for the U.S. government's denunciations of Russian belligerence in the Ukraine, without the oppressive weight of the string of illegal U.S. wars stretching from Afghanistan through Iraq to Libya and the drone wars in Yemen and Pakistan, not to mention the NATO expansion and State Department interference in the Ukraine that has escalated tensions.

Join the anti-hypocrisy movement now.!

We would like it if the U.S. government's condemnations of human rights abuses in nations whose governments it wants to overthrow carried the weight they would if matched by condemnations of such abuses in nations whose governments the U.S. arms and supports, such as Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel, Egypt, etc.

Imagine if the U.S. Secretary of State were able to condemn illegal wars without many people immediately pointing out that he had recently supported some. Imagine if the United States could oppose torture abroad without having established immunity for all U.S. torturers. Toward this end we are launching a campaign to stamp out hypocrisy.

Ben, don't we all! But obviously this petition is targeting the US, and rightly so,I would add. If I had another one for other govts I would certainly post that as well !

Of course, signed. Can't forget the hypocrisy of our government at home...what it says, promises...and what it actually does. Look at the policy on fossil fuels and what Obama has said about climate change. Then there's immigration...our National Parks and BO&G...the worst is the policy on GMOs and other problems with our food supply...Hypocrisy isn't only practiced in our foreign relations, but with domestic policies.

I am already a member of Roots. Sometimes the US Government is just so laughable. The nerve to criticise another nation whilst killing its own citizens, whilst supporting murdering Zionists in Israhell, whilst killing innocent people with drones, whilst holding people without trial in Guantanamo Bay.

Keep the jokes coming America!

Gladly and proudly signed! I voted for president Obama, he got me on the "DREAM" bullshit! Here he is the son of an immigrant, yet no other presidents Truman or Eisenhower have been deported back to Latin America! How is that dream working? President Obama you sold out not only dreams and hopes but the decency of America! After dry drunk BuSHIT and evil/Cheney had done so much damage to Americans and America I thought cannot get worse, well it has and as I have often stated, wake up folks the USA is no longer a country, we are a business run by monSATAN, Cargill, oil companies, big pharma, fukmart etc...... The ultimate hypocrisy is that we go to war with other countries to try to teach them democracy, when we have NONE! Even SCOTUS just sold us out! Now the coffers of the whores, oh sorry I mean our political representatives can be filled to the brim and no questions asked! Pox on all of them.

I am all too human and can blow a gasket on certain subjects. My post needs this correction. NO president has deported as many Latin Americans since president eisenhower (who by the way is the one who coined the word wetback) like president Obama has! Eisenhower deported 13,000,000.00 Mexicans, Obama has surpassed that! Hell he has doubled downed even what buSHIT did when it comes to deportations! Not only is Obama the son of an immigrant, Obama was an immigrant in Asia. How about that empathy on his part? So yes he is a big hypocritical piece of work.

Noted. Signed. Added this thought regarding American hypocrisy: " The United States has done far more than el Presidente Castro ever did to make life difficult in Cuba. If the United States really wants life in Cuba to improve, then it should end its foolish, failed embargo and normalize relations with Cuba at once. "

Hypocrisy helps no one. Then there are the teabaggers and con-servative governments world wide, such as the hypocritical Harper government. Politicians of all political stripes must liberate themselves from hypocrisy to truly change the world for the better.

Also already signed, now noted,
Aurea,, you are right, your post needs no changing. The problem is that we are not newly a "corporation," have been for most of our existence, despite the myths we tell ourselves, and others.
See "Democracy for the Few," by Michael Parenti, "A People's History of the United States," by Howard Zinn, "The New American Militarism: How Americans are Seduced by War," by Andrew Bacevich.
However, I do not see it as "New," as we have been fighting wars to support our imperialism at least since we created the excuse to invade Mexico, and annex what was half of that country.
And if you put the new SCOTUShit together with that you will see why Reagan and Bushit appointed the judges they did.

Thanks Mitchell for pointing to how badly needed is a demilitarisation movement, as more and more people should have realised by now that endless warfare is unsustainable and eventually leading to destruction, thus counterproductive to their imperialistic goal..
