It is time to straighten out Congress!
On June 12th, filmmaker Jerrol LeBaron will be marching on Congress and hand delivering a petition to congress, as well as a copy of his documentary “Fools on the Hill" for good measure. Each member of Congress will know how many constituents in their district signed the petition so that they can see these are issues everyone wants resolved. We are pleased to partner with Jerrol and invite the Coffee Party communities to sign the petition, and also order his film “Fools on the Hill.”
To make an impact on Congress, we needs millions of signatures. Please help by forwarding this to all your friends.
There are five parts to this petition, as shown below. When you sign one, you will be signing all five parts.
PART 1: We Want to See the Final Version of the Bill Well Before the Vote.
NO MORE adding hundreds of pages to a bill in the middle of the night and passing it the next morning!
NO MORE “deals” made behind closed doors just before the vote!
NO MORE special interests influencing our laws at the last possible minute!

PART 5: Untouchable and Above the Law
NO ONE should be above the law.
NO POLITICIAN should be untouchable.
EVERY ELECTED official must be accountable and answerable to their constituents.
ELECTED OFFICE should be a place to serve with honor, not a place to profit off of the backs of taxpayers.

Change does not usually come on the strength of one or two votes in Congress. It is public opinion and attitudes solidifying into customs and social values, and then into votes.
Women’s right to vote and the Civil Rights Act are perfect examples. Politicians didn’t pass these laws because they were the right thing to do. If this were they case, they would have fixed these injustices a long time earlier. They did it because we as a people united and demanded it.
