Online petition for Obama Administration

Post by thisisalex » Tue Nov 08, 2011 9:14 am

It looks like a great idea...

https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/

This tool provides us with a new way to petition the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues. If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.
Only petitions that reach 25,000 signatures within 30 days will generate an official response.

Please someone speaking a better english than me start a petition like this!
And remember: we only have 30 days! There should be a huge Facebook campaign :) I'm in!

thanks
alex

The White House responds to one of the early petitions.

'No evidence' for extraterrestrials, says White House

The US government has formally denied that it has any knowledge of contact with extraterrestrial life.

The announcement came as a response to submissions to the We The People website, which promises to address any petition that gains 5,000 signatories.

Two petitions called for disclosure of government information on ETs and an acknowledgement of any contact.

The White House responded that there was "no evidence that any life exists outside our planet".

More than 17,000 citizens joined the two petitions, and the White House has since amended the requirements for response to a minimum of 25,000 signatories.

"The US government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race," wrote space policy expert Phil Larson of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

"In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye."

I think it's a good idea. Do we petition for funding for CCSVI research?
Don't want to be lumped in with the extraterrestrials, though, or have the official statement be that CCSVI is investigational....

It's a good idea to petition for funding but not for a possible negative statement. more precisely: for funded research
