Petition Background

America is losing its focus on being the land of the free and the home of the brave. It has been influenced by politics that are entirely driven by money from the ultra wealthy and corporations. We need to sustain healthy public institution like the US Postal Service. America needs to take care of the elderly and not let Social Security and Medicare destroyed out of greed. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. American workers are being forced into a hostile work environment with decreasing rights and benefits. Labor unions are being broken, watered down, for the sake of the ultra wealthy. Americans need to take back America!
