Long story short: tell our government to start making peace in the Middle East, tell the Biden Administration to fight for lower drug costs, and tell our Justice Department to investigate AI robocalls in New Hampshire. Use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs to communicate your will.
Win Without War helps you demand a cease-fire in the Israel/Palestine war, while Civic Shout helps you tell our government not to go to war with Iran. I’m old enough to remember right-wing “war on terror” bloggers not wanting to attack Iran after we attacked Iraq; maybe they got enough jollies from Iraq, but maybe they also knew that occupying Iran would be even harder than occupying Iraq turned out to be! But if we let the Israel/Palestine war get any worse – and it will, since Mr. Netanyahu wants to keep Hamas a player so he can keep power – then we might have war with Iran, and that’ll go so, so much worse than war with Iraq did.
More Perfect Union helps you tell the Biden Administration to enact the most vigorous “march-in rights” rule possible. “March-in rights,” created by the Bayh/Dole Act of 1980, would enable our government to “march in” and make cheaper drugs whenever big pharma corporations charge too much for drugs that taxpayer money helped create, which describes, like, almost all drugs all the time now. Big pharma corporations will want to open up loopholes so they can still charge an arm and a leg (so to speak?) for life-saving drugs, so now’s the time for us to stand up for our right not to get gouged over drugs we helped create with our hard-earned money.
Finally, Civic Shout helps you tell our Department of Justice (or DOJ) to investigate AI-enabled vote suppression during the recent New Hampshire Presidential primary. You’ve no doubt heard that someone used AI to create a Joe Biden-sounding robocall urging people to stay home on primary day and “save” their vote for the November election? Well, that’s vote suppression simple and plain, and vote suppression is illegal simple and plain. Doesn’t matter the New Hampshire Democratic Presidential primary wasn’t “important”! This was surely a test run; next time it happens, it’ll really hurt America.
