Whitehouse Further Restricts Right To Be Heard

Not that it made a difference anyway. Imo, they used our petitions to their sole advantage to poetically craft responses that the average msm tv viewer would 'agree' with. The right of The People to be heard now depends on a majority to approve/disapprove. Individuals, or an irate few, no longer have this means to be heard.

"When we first raised the threshold — from 5,000 to 25,000 — we called it "a good problem to have". Starting today, as we move into a second term, petitions must receive 100,000 signatures in 30 days in order to receive an official response from the Obama Administration."

This is silly. They wont

This is silly. They wont listen unless your name is AIPAC, GE, Halliburton, Monsanto, Goldman Sachs, etc...

The point of these petitions are

to give you the illusion that they care about what you think. They don't.

It seems that

they planned on many leftist causes exploding on the site which of course they would use to push their agenda but it backfired and people like us have used it instead.

Free includes debt-free!

how can anyone

think these petitions are for the 'good of the people'?

it's intelligence gathering and social manipulation.
