Dear friends,

I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People, a
new feature on WhiteHouse.gov, and ask for your support. Will you add your
name to mine? If this petition gets 25,000 signatures by December 08, 2011,
the White House will review it and respond!

We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the Obama
Administration to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets
enough support, the Obama Administration will issue an official response.

You can view and sign the petition here:


Here is my petition:

Create legislation that would return the Government to the People. In an attempt to recapture the Publics right to sole representation by
Federal employees. I hear by propose legislation that will address any
potential conflict of interest on the part of those sworn to serve.

  1. It is illegal for any Federal employee, elected, appointed or hired to
    receive any contributions for any purpose in money, goods or services from
    any individual, group, company, corporation or organization.

  2. It is illegal for any employee, current or past to work on behalf of or
    provide access for groups, companies, corporations or organizations to
    influence in any way Public employees, elections or legislation pending or
    proposed before the Government.

"This is not a question of politics, of right or wrong. This is a question of intelligence. We must be smart. We enjoy popular support, for now. But to preserve America's good will, we must keep our demands narrow: end the corrupting influence of money in politics. That is something a majority of Americans can get behind. That is something a social movement can achieve. And then, and only then, can the other issues be successfully pursued." -theghostofthomassjefferson November2011
