Climate Change is KILLING our Planet. Politicians & Corporations MUST take IMMEDIATE ACTIONClimate Change is a reality. ACTION to stop man-made carbon dioxide is an EMERGENCY and the timeline is MOST URGENT now. Deniers are operating in the interests of fossil-carbon-based industries. Fixing the man-made contributions of carbon dioxide and methane in the atmosphere is far more URGENT than politicians and multi-national corporations realize. The deniers scoff at the conclusions of The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the guidelines they provided in 2006. The IPCC was founded in 1988. It took 18 years just to produce agreed-upon guidelines acceptable to all the nations that were part of the IPCC. Even with the massive effort needed to transform the American (and the rest of the world's) economy to a wholly renewable, sustainable carbon-neutral fuel system with best efforts and total support from government and corporate policies, even with enthusiasm and all haste in supporting the efforts it will take several years to accomplish this kind of change. Setting timeline goals of 2030 and 2050 is no guarantee that these measures will be effective enough to avoid billions (yes, billions!) of deaths as a result of Climate Change. Some scientists even claim that we may reach a point, very soon, that the effects of Climate Change will accelerate, feeding on the current effects themselves to continue in a self-sustaining way. We have arrived at a point that politicians have noticed that Climate Change requires attention. We need to make them (and corporate CEOs) aware just how URGENT an EMERGENCY this is, and to take massive and IMMEDIATE action to address this global problem. This is no time to spend another 18 years of debate to produce nothing but more guidelines. As one politician has said, we need to put ourselves, "On a war footing" as we did in gearing up for WWII. The USA reacted with fast-paced and transformative changes. We need immediate results on that scale and we need it NOW. Despite critticism of the cost, there is also huge economic opportunity in this transition. There is no one to fight here, no bombs or guns can defeat it. It cannot be condensed into the single face of an enemy but it is the world's problem, and we must unite to defeat this common foe. We must hold our politicians and corporate leaders responsible to take IMMEDIATE and MASSIVE WORLDWIDE ACTION to create worldwide infrastructure in support of sustainable, renewable fuel that does not put fossil carbon into an atmosphere already overloaded with climate changing elements. Contact your local politician. Demand change!1 of 100 SignaturesCreated by Stafford W.
Ask Senator Elizabeth Warren NOT to run for President. We need you in the Senate.One of the fragments of the attempts to wreck the Federal Government is the separation of powers by the no-government Republicans and supine Democrats. You, along with Bernie Sanders, Ayanna Pressley, and other progressive congressmembers, are our only hope of turning this around and restoring responsive, honorable governance. Please remain in the Senate. We need you there.1 of 100 SignaturesCreated by EDWARD A.
Enforce Minimum Wage for Social Security and WelfareWe have minimum wage laws that most businesses can't get away with violating. But the government can, and does. They will say "Because benefits aren't wages". But that is dodging the question of WHY we have minimum wage laws: humaneness, simple morality. We have laws protecting animals. Humans need to be protected too! The fact that so many people receive unconscionably low benefits, IF THEY GET THEM AT ALL!- (Another problem!)- - is a significant factor creating poverty, homelessness, illness, and an EPIDEMIC OF SUICIDES. NEITHER PARTY HAS CARED TO ADDRESS THIS FOR DECADES! SHAME ON B O T H PARTIES! They will say "We can't afford it!" But we can always afford bogus wars, and rich people pay ZERO tax for Social Security on income above $128,400, as of 2018! Stop the Wars, and make the rich pay their fair share! It is up to the American people to hold "our representatives" ' feet to the fire, or REPLACE THEM!2 of 100 SignaturesCreated by Roger B.

Merger of Sprint and T-MobileNot only would this merger narrow choices for everybody, it would ultimately increase costs for those who can afford it least. Perhaps even more important is the hold that Crown Prince Bin Salman of Saudi Arabia would have on our population. He is a major shareholder in Softbank, an international holding company that already effectively controls 85 percent of Sprint. Should this occur, then, according to Trita Parsi, "Softbank will gain a 27 percent stake overall in what would become one of the largest US mobile providers in the United States. This would give the repressive Saudi dictatorship influence in the creation of America's first 5G network."1 of 100 SignaturesCreated by Anne H.
Save Our VA - Rebuild the VA * Don't Privatize It!The failed Choice program has pushed hundreds of thousands of veterans out of VA hospitals & clinics into private care. Surveys show 80% of vets want VA care NOT private care. Trump & the Koch bros. want to close down the VA, sell off the hospitals & clinics, & send all vets to private care at a 30% higher cost to taxpayers than VA care. They intend to make billions in profits off sick vets.1 of 100 SignaturesCreated by Buzz D.

Need for Presidential Nominative Reforms and Presidential Electoral ReformsWe believe that Congress can enact bills or amendments that pertain to presidential nominative reforms and presidential electoral reforms without requiring any changes in any political parties' rules. These bills or amendments help anyone who wishes to demonstrate his or her independence from the Democratic Party and other political parties and wishes to run for president of the United States like U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders. If the bills or amendments are in effect, Senator Sanders would not have to simply use the Democratic Party as a vehicle for removing any Democratic presidential nominee from a presidential general election and running for president of the United States. Would you mind either including the presidential nominative reforms and the presidential electoral reforms in bills or amendments or introducing these bills or amendments in Congress, please? Thank you for your time to read this message.1 of 100 SignaturesCreated by Thomas Y.
