My name is Jim, and every morning I wake up to a very real threat.
It's called Keystone XL and it's the oil pipeline that TransCanada -- the massive Canadian conglomerate -- is lobbying hard to build through America's heartland.
TransCanada offered me $244,000 to let them build their pipeline through my family's land in Polk County, Nebraska next to the Platte River and I declined. My childre...view full petition

Again, this is another illustration of the Republican Party and the tea party, whereby these political parties are saying to the American general public that they care about us as American citizens. When in reality their voting record clearly shows that they are supporting big business and the wealthy. Because this fracking process is not helping anyone. It is actually harming the environment. And it is causing tremendous problems for drinking water throughout various communities.
And it is as I have said before. The Republican Party doesn't really care who they hurt as long as they will always support big business and the wealthy. Meaning that their support for fracking is actually causing problems for drinking water. And it is of course affecting their drinking water as well. Whether they like it or not.
So that basically means that the Republican Party doesn't even care about the safety of their own family when it is compared against their desire to support and to defend with their lives. The rights of big business and the wealthy. Because that's exactly what their voting record, the voting record of the Republican Party and the tea party clearly reflects. So they don't really even care about their own family. Then they are also lying when they say they care about the American people. Because their votes in Congress show very clearly that they are in fact not caring about the American people. Because fracking is not helping the American people. It is hurting the American people.
So that basically means that the Republican Party doesn't care who they hurt in this country. As long as they continue to support big business and the wealthy. That is not fair to our children. It is not fair to the children of these members of the Republican Party and the tea party. So they won't even care about their own children. It is up to us Americans in this country to stand together and to demand that the Republican Party stop trying to hurt their own families and to hurt the families of this country with their open support and undying support for the wealthy and the large businesses of this country. They were put in office to defend us the American people. Not to defend the rights of large businesses and the wealthy.
I urge you to please support and sign this petition.
