James Devine signed Authority to order nuclear launch 2017-08-09 18:37:19 -0400Regardless of President Trump’s ignorance, dishonesty and narcissism, this should be an imperative for our democratic society.
No one person should have the authority to order a first strike nuclear attack, but right now the President of the United States has sole authority to order America's military forces to launch nuclear weapons.
Sign this petition to urge Congress to address this issue right now!
The decision to use nuclear weapons is potentially the most important decision this nation could ever make. A single warhead could kill hundreds of thousands of people; nuclear war could change the face of the planet. Yet, despite the risks, there is no check on the president’s authority to order a nuclear strike.
Congress should require a declaration of war before the president uses nuclear weapons for anything other than retaliation for incoming nuclear threats in order to reduce the chance of an impulsive or irrational launch.27,377 signatures
Congress must enact a law limiting a President's ability to order a nuclear strike unless the United States is under attack by an enemy who is using atomic weapons.
James Devine signed Democrats must pursue a progressive agenda via James Devine 2017-07-26 13:26:09 -0400
Lisa McCormick is asking Democrats in Congress to sign on to eight bills that define a better future for America and show the nation what life could be like with a progressive majority running things instead of the greedy and corrupt cartel of billionaires who are driving the Republican agenda.
Resisting the Trump Republicans alone will not move our country forward, so Democrats should campaign on a bold agenda that creates an America that works for everyone. If Democrats want to take our country back from the billionaire class and Republicans in 2018, we need to speak to the concerns of our people.
We're fighting for a Congress that will put people before profits in an America where everyone has access to health care, free public education, and a job that pays a living wage. A livable planet, justice, peace and prosperity were handed down to us and we must preserve them to pass them on to our children and future generations.
McCormick said all Democrats in Congress should co-sponsor the following bills:
Health Care: H.R. 676 Medicare For All Act, introduced by Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich).
Education: H.R. 1880 College for All Act of 2017, introduced by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (WA-07).
Worker Rights: H.R.15 - Raise the Wage Act, Representatives Bobby Scott (D-VA) and Keith Ellison (D-MN).
Women’s Rights: H.R.771 - Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH Woman) Act of 2017, introduced by Rep. Lee, Barbara (D-CA-13).
Voting Rights: H.R.2840 - Automatic Voter Registration Act, introduced by Rep. David N. Cicilline (D-RI-1).
Criminal Justice and Immigrant Rights: Justice is Not For Sale Act of 2017, Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) in 2017.
Tax on Wall Street: H.R. 1144 - Inclusive Prosperity Act, introduced by Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN).
Climate Change: Environmental Justice Act of 2017’ introduced by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (WA-07).7 signatures
Please join us by urging every Democrat in Congress to support Medicare for All, college tuition for all, a $15 per hour minimum wage, equal access to abortion, expanded voting rights, ending private prisons, taxing Wall Street and protecting our environment.
James Devine posted about Petitioner on Facebook 2017-03-08 12:17:53 -0500I signed up to volunteer for Lisa McCormick. Join me!To appear on the ballot, a candidate for senator must file a nominating petition containing the signatures of at least 1,000 Democrats or unaffiliated voters. The forms need to be signed by each voter with his or her own hand and the people who circulate those petitions must certify that they personally witnessed the signatures.
Like many tasks in the campaign, this is not particularly difficult and it can be quite fun, but it is an important part of the process with significant legal ramifications if not done correctly. The best way to insure strict compliance with the law and maximum political benefit for the campaign is by recruiting a large number of volunteers to participate in collecting petition signatures.

We will be holding meetings in a few months to collect completed forms, so download the document and make time to promptly circulate your petition.
This is a critical first step in the process of defeating a crooked establishment politician, so we are very grateful for your help and support.
