Electoral College: Make Hillary Clinton President on December 19
2 years ago

On December 19, the Electors of the Electoral College will cast their ballots. If they all vote the way their states voted, Donald Trump will win. However, they can vote for Hillary Clinton if they choose. Even in states where that is not allowed, their vote would still be counted, they would simply pay a small fine - which we can be sure Clinton supporters will be glad to pay!

We are calling on the Electors to ignore their states' votes and cast their ballots for Secretary Clinton. Why?

Mr. Trump is unfit to serve. His scapegoating of so many Americans, and his impulsivity, bullying, lying, admitted history of sexual assault, and utter lack of experience make him a danger to the Republic. 

Secretary Clinton WON THE POPULAR VOTE and should be President. 

 Hillary won the popular vote. The only reason Trump "won" is because of the Electoral College.

But the Electoral College can actually give the White House to either candidate. So why not use this most undemocratic of our institutions to ensure a democratic result?


There is no reason Trump should be President.

"It's the 'People's Will'"

No. She won the popular vote.

"Our system of government under our Constitution says he wins"

No. Our Constitution says the Electors choose.

"Too many states prohibit 'Faithless Electors'"

24 states bind electors. If electors vote against their party, they usually pay a fine. And people get mad. But they can vote however they want and there is no legal means to stop them in most states.

Support Byron Chubbuck aka Oso Blanco
Warden Troy Williamson in Lewisburg
Sponsored by: 
Byron Chubbuck, who's Indian name is Oso Blanco, is serving 80 years for expropriating money from banks and sending thousands of dollars to Chiapas Mexico to help fund the Zapatistas and feed indigenous children. Because of his political background he has been subject to horrendous treatment at U.S. Penitentiary Lewisburg which must be stopped!
Oso has racked up 1.5 years of no phone calls, 1.5 years of no visitation, and 1.5 years of loss of store privileges! He hasn't even been at this facility for 6 months
His punishment incidents:
1- "Our cell is very very clean but no there is no ventilation. So we have to hang up anything damp to dry or in a day it will start to mold" Oso and his cellie got 6 months for a towel hanging up to dry.
2 - "Around 50 people got a shot (write-up) for taking off these hot ass jump suits to work out in our dog cages. They put bar cuffs on very tight. This cuts into your wrists and swells up your hands like balloons. It's a form of torture". Oso got 6 months for removing a jump suit.
3 - Oso was violently attacked by guards and gassed while cuffed and left in a cell with water on the floor with only his underwear on for 72 hours or so. The guards claimed he threw feces at them. Anyone who knows Oso (or looks at his prison record) knows this is a false claim. Indeed, Oso filed a formal complaint against the attacks and the false claims. Oso says he was left in tight cuffs from 6/24 - 6/27 and has lost feeling in his big right toe as a result. He has been denied medical treatment and still has no feeling months later. Oso got 6 months for getting beat up and shackled
We the undersigners want to restore the rights for Oso and that his treatment will be fair and respected,
thank you

Tell the IOC to Play Fair!

Request that the IOC take immediate action to address the violation of workers' rights in their supply chains.

The Beijing Olympics may be THE most profitable Olympics in the Games' history. Meanwhile the workers that actually make the goods that bear the Olympic logo aren't profiting at all. Research into conditions at factories producing Olympic-licensed products turned up many very serious rights violations. We don't think that's fair. Do you agree that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) needs to take responsibility for the conditions where their products are produced? Then let them know!

Send the letter below to IOC President Jacques Rogge. Let him know that you think the IOC should take responsibility for the unchecked violation of workers' rights in Olympic supply chains. Encourage him to engage in a dialogue with PlayFair 2008 to follow up on the constructive solutions they've proposed to address the problems in Olympic workplaces. IOC action on this serious issue is long overdue!

You can use this form to fax the following letter directly to Mr. Rogge (See their webpage)

Our goal is to send 100,000 messages in the next three weeks urging the president to uphold his commitment to the peacekeeping mission.

Help us reach our goal! Fill out the form below to add your name to a petition urging President Bush to live up to our commitments.

Here in Canada there is a growing problem , when Muslim women immigrate here and to the U.S. they see that North American women are not as restricted as we don't follow Muslim dictates . When they attempt to blend in they are beaten by their husbands , as a result the women's shelters are filled to over flowing and they are forced onto welfare . We are an international sisterhood and should all have the right not too live in fear.
Paul Wolfowit
13 years ago

On Friday morning, Paul Wolfowitz -- President Bush's key architect of the Iraq war, now president of the World Bank and self-styled fighter of corruption -- was caught red-handed in a corruption scandal of his own. He pushed a huge pay raise for his girlfriend, and hid the facts from his organization and the world.

He's got to go.

The World Bank's board, made up of our governments from around the world, is now deciding whether Wolfowitz should keep his job. An immediate, massive, and global outcry could make the difference. Our petition is three words long: "Sack Paul Wolfowitz." Sign it here:

When Paul Wolfowitz was a top official in President Bush's Department of Defense, he was one of the Iraq war's biggest backers. When the war became a fiasco, instead of firing Wolfowitz, Bush gave him a promotion--to president of the World Bank. At the Bank, he vowed to make corruption his top issue--but alienated the world by delaying aid packages to India, Kenya, and other countries without consulting the bank's Executive Board.

Now we've learned that he didn't practice what he preached.

Wolfowitz's girlfriend was a senior World Bank employee. When he became president, the Bank's ethics rules would not allow him to keep her on staff under his supervision. So he transferred her to the US State Department--but kept her on the Bank's payroll, and gave her a US$60,000 pay raise. Her salary rose to US$193,590, higher than Condi Rice's. What's more, it appears that Wolfowitz hid the evidence of what he'd done.

Fighting corruption is a key to ending poverty. But there can't be one standard for the rich and powerful and a different one for everybody else.

The 24-member board of the World Bank, which uncovered Wolfowitz's corruption through a special investigation, is now deciding his fate. Bush is likely pulling strings to help Wolfowitz keep his job. It's time for global public opinion to weigh in--which means it's all up to you.

Click here now to sign the petition, and then send this email to ten friends:

Wolfowitz claimed the Iraq war would spread democracy, but it sparked a civil war. He promised to fight corruption, but engaged in it himself.

He talks a lot about accountability. It's time to bring some accountability to Paul Wolfowitz.

With hope,

Ben, Ricken, Hannah, Galit, Lee-Sean, Tom, and the rest of the Avaaz team.

PLEASE take a moment to sign Christopher's Bill, the Juvenile Justice Reform Act which is set to be delivered to the South Carolina Legislature this month. lt is a great step in telling our law makers that juveniles should NOT be held accountable the same as adults who commit crimes. Children deserve a chance to be rehabilitated and not thrown into adult prisons with no hope! Thank you for your support!

In SC and other US states, children as young as 10 are being arrested, tried, convicted and sentenced as adults under mandatory sentencing mandates. Children are being sentenced to mandatory terms created to net young people involved in gang violence and the drug trades. Children are being sentenced to life without parole. Often under the influence of prescription drugs, otherwise average and above average children commit unthinkable crimes. These children are then thrown into a court and sentencing system designed for hardcore adult criminals. Mandatory sentencing does not take into consideration the past non-violent social history or the effects strong prescription drugs have on young minds. The results are ruined young lives. We need your support. Please sign this petition and lend your name to the pursuit of Juvenile Justice. More information at
