this petition needs just over 4000 signatures by tomorrow for it to be reviewed by the white house. Whenever anything controversial is presented on a petition, the government merely gives a bullshit standard response, which ruins the integrity of this system.

Help out your country, Pit!


if you're not american, you can pretend for a few minutes. just give an american zip code (10128 is one) and sign it anyway!

edit: over 100 signatures in half an hour! this might actually make it by tomorrow.

Ooh yeah, no better way to make a petition taken seriously than to have a load of people lying on it.

It'll be taken more seriously than if there aren't enough signatures on the petition.

Why do you want more signatures then? Shouldn't you just leave it blank and then everyone will think it's real serious.

I said:

"It'll be taken more seriously than if there aren't enough signatures on the petition."

in other words:

If people lie about their location, but the petition gets enough signatures, the government would take the petition more seriously than if there aren't enough signatures on it in the first place.

I'm pretty sure that I already signed this, but I'll try again.

I tried to keep the front page updated at first, but it's a bitch to copy and paste >1000 posts. If you go to the last page, you can go backwards and still read all the new ones though. Sorry bout that

So what is this? A battle for your government to actually do what they're supposed to do?

Gov.: "Ok, man, we'll listen to the people, but only if they get 25K sigs on that petition. If that doesn't happen, then we're going back to lying and not giving a ****."

I have to admire the hilarity in that, and I'm sure it was intended.

I can see it now...

Nameless Intern: Mr. President, a petition has made its way through our impregnable bureaucracy, do you want me to summon Hoover to kill the-

Obama: Oh dear. They breached the 25,000 mark? Either we have a serious problem on our hands, or the people are organizing. Either way, a serious problem on our hands. Yes, summon the ghost of Hoover and have him meet me in the situation room in 30 minutes.

Nameless Intern: But, sir...the ritual requires a day of fasting before it begins. It could go awry and-

Obama: Did I stutter? 30 minutes. Presidents are judged based on their willingness to act, not their regards for metaphysical traffic laws.

Situation Room: 30 minutes later

Obama: I assume you all know why you're here.

Sun Tzu: Clearly you're an incompetent leader.

Machiavelli: I wouldn't speak so fast, General Tso. There must be some good reason he brought us here.

Nickelback: There's never a good reason for us to be here.

Obama: Hoover can only sustain his connection to this dimension when a room is filled with the sounds of pure evil...or Canadians. Two birds with one stone.

Machiavelli: One bird with two stones, sir.

Obama: Do you want to try and help Italy instead?

Machiavelli: Fair enough.

Nameless Intern, horribly disfigured: OH MY GAAARGLEEGED *falls dead*

*Enter Hoover, wearing battle armor*


Hoover: MINE *kills all involved*

Prologue

And that, son, is how Hoover stole Christmas.
I walk the line between fantasy and reality. One is more fun, the other is where the food is.

Concerns like that were raised in 18th century England. (Clarification: how effective petitions are at reflecting the public mood, reasons including a) false names, b) people pushing people to sign them.) This was, y'know, before the United States even existed. Sorry for being such a sceptical, whining bastard but petitions have an inflated worth. (And plus the only two petitions in the UK which have been taken seriously have been brought in on the back of reactionary, pissed off conservatives. )

Who said I want the government to take me seriously? I'm not so arrogant to think that my opinion is more important than anyone else's.

Moreover, who am I - a lowly plebe - to tell all these intelligent and highly experienced politicians what policies are the best? I mean, it's not like we tell NASA scientists what materials would make the optimal heat shield for their shuttles and so forth.

Those kinds of lies are very easily seen through.

If 1,000 people sign it with that zip code you gave it hardly looks genuine.

Your petitions help the economy. They burn them to heat the white house, thus causing less energy usage and more efficient and affordable power bills.
