are similar to petitions, but contain more formal language.
are directed towards a specific individual and are a means by which a group of individuals can express their dissatisfaction with the behavior of an elected official. Public censures do NOT carry any force of law. Rather, a public censure falls under one of the definitions of the word: "An expression of strong disapproval or harsh criticism. Censures are delivered to the individual addressed by the censure and may also be delivered to members of leadership.
These are short term issues where we are asking you to pick up a phone or write an email. Calls to Action are typically more time sensitive than the other three categories.
Vetting Candidates Before Filing - Party Reform
We think it's time for changes to our party. We have a Purple Legislature in a RED state! Those who sign this petition think it's time we vetted candidates BEFORE we allow them to file as Republicans. They also need to sign a pledge to our platform, be held accountable for their actions if elected, and be refused the opportunity to refile if they govern as members of another party. If you agree, please click the petition and add your signature and your voice.
Retain Voluntary Inclusion of Party on Voter Registration Forms (Oppose HB781)
In 2022 the state legislature passed landmark election integrity legislation, making us the 3rd strongest state in the union for fair and honest elections! Now, "Republican" Representative Peggy McGaugh is seeking to undo one of the important changes in that legislation, namely the right to VOLUNTARILY identify your party affiliation. Why? Because she represents county clerks rather than Missouri voters. Make your voice heard by supporting our opposition to her nonsense legislation. Signed petitions will be delivered to Rep McGaugh, House Leadership, and if it actually gets passed out of the House, we'll send it to appropriate members of the Senate as well.

Initiative Petition (IP) Reform (SJR28 - Carter)
IP reform is badly needed in Missouri. IPs are used to modify our state constitution. Unfortunately, it currently requires only a simply majority vote to make significant changes that don't belong in the document that is meant to describe our infastructure. The Left is routinely bypassing the legislature through IPs which promote their socialist agenda. They can then count on liberal votes from St. Louis, Columbia, and Kansas City to push changes that the rest of Missouri rejects. SJR28 would change all that by requiring an additional majority vote of the 163 state legislative districts, most of which are in rural counties. This would finally give the rest of us a voice equal to the liberal cities. Click HERE to read the full bill text.
Closed Primaries - (Support Stacy HB31)
Our 2022 landmark election integrity legislation provided for voluntary declaration of party affiliation by voters registering or registering to vote. This bill would go beyond that by (1) requiring party affiliation or be identified as "unaffiliated" and limit voting in our primaries to members registered with that particular party. This applies to Republicans, Democrats, etc. This change is important so that members of other parties can't adversely affect selections of party candidates by switching parties at the last moment, voting for the weakest candidate, and then "switching back" as they walk out of the voting precinct. This is one more step in the election integrity process. Click HERE to read the bill text. Bold items are additions, strike-throughs are deletions.
