How do I say this gently?

There really isn't a way.
Don't be a tool!!!
White House Petition is nothing but a marketing scam to develop talking points for the Community Organizer In Chief.
You are playing war in their arena!

It's called sending a message

I'll never understand why people are too scared to sign their name on a petition. White House petitions are a great avenue to spread important messages and show the Administration where we stand no matter how effective they are. Sign the damn petition, it won't hurt a thing.

I'll refer you to Samuel Adams

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

The individual who refuses to defend his rights when called by his Government, deserves to be a slave, and must be punished as an enemy of his country and friend to her foe. - Andrew Jackson

Nothing to pardon

He did nothing wrong.

God bless you Ed Snowden

God bless you Ed Snowden

I bet there's a flunky at NSA

I bet there's a flunky at NSA who runs queries to see who signs these petitions and sends the results to the IRS.

Hell yeah, you know what they say

If you're not on a Government watch list, you're not trying hard enough.

Edward Snowden is Not Guilty under Marbury v. Madison

Edward Snowden is Not Guilty under Marbury v. Madison

"The question, whether an act repugnant to the Constitution can become the law of the land, is a question deeply interesting to the United States; but, happily, not of an intricacy proportioned to its interest. It seems only necessary to recognize certain principles, supposed to have been long and well established, to decide it."

"The government of the United States is of the latter description. The powers of the legislature are defined and limited; and that those limits may not be mistaken, or forgotten, the Constitution is written. To what purpose are powers limited, and to what purpose is that limitation committed to writing, if these limits may, at any time, be passed by those intended to be restrained? The distinction between a government with limited and unlimited powers is abolished if those limits do not confine the persons on whom they are imposed, and if acts prohibited and acts allowed are of equal obligation. It is a proposition too plain to be contested, that the Constitution controls any legislative act repugnant to it; or, that the legislature may alter the Constitution by an ordinary act."

"Certainly all those who have framed written constitutions contemplate them as forming the fundamental and paramount law of the nation, and consequently, the theory of every such government must be, that an act of the legislature, repugnant to the constitution, is void."

"Thus, the particular phraseology of the Constitution of the United States confirms and strengthens the principle, supposed to be essential to all written constitutions, that a law repugnant to the Constitution is void; and that courts, as well as other departments, are bound by that instrument."
