    White house petitioning

    Whitehouse.gov has a new "we the people" feature. If a petition gets 5000 votes, it'll get a personal response... whatever that means.

    Check it out, see if you can spot a common theme!

    At least the most honest petition doesn't hide under cover of "industrial paper" or "medicine".

    How many petition signers will get follow up visits/IP address flags?

    This is awesome. I am going to petition the White House to tell Warren Buffett that if he thinks he is making too much money and wants to pay more taxes that instead he and any other CEO with this problem should cut thier pay and pay thier workers more. Not give it to the goverment to just piss away.

    I'm sure someone will remove it though. Can't have free speech in this great country. LOL

    This is why the two party system is a failure. They only give you two choices. And usually neither help you. Unacceptable

    Sure you can, you just have to have enough money for your speech to get listened to!

    I've got a petition that needs 150 votes to become publicly available. Anyone want to help me out?

    They've just started responding to them today. I wonder what they'll say to the 6 or 7 legalize marijuana petitions, which collectively have about 300,000 votes...
