We’ve previously mentioned the White House’s We The People web site.
You know, the online place for folks to vent over lost elections and otherwise petition our federal government for common sense solutions to
non-existent everyday problems. 1 The White House promises a formal response to each petition that garners at least 25,000 signatures.
My favorite so far? This…
Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016.
Those who sign here petition the United States government to secure funding and resources, and begin construction on a Death Star by 2016.
By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense.
The petition has over 27,000 signatories, which means the White House must come up with a reply soon. 2
