    A petition to the White House questioning the Venezuela election got over 100,000 signatures.
    A petition against cutting Social Security just got 2300 signatures when it expired last Saturday April 20. The Venezuela petition expires May 15.
    Now see, White House petitions are a useful place to register opinions. Boycotting this site is not a good strategy, even if you are disappointed in this President.
    People who want Texas to secede don't worry about their real chances of influencing the President. They just go ahead and sign.

    Censorship is rogue government.

      It's there to help the Obama campaign grow it's email list and database, nothing more.

      Anyone who thinks the petitions actually represent what the public thinks about issues or that the WH actually cares about any of the issues people bring up is hopelessly naive.

    •  I go ahead and sign (0+ / 0-)

      The campaign must have gotten my contact information long ago. I sign all the petitions I like. It costs me virtually nothing. I don't worry about being "hopelessly naive."
      The Venezuela petition got over 100,000 signatures in less than week. I inspect petitions daily.

    •  2 million people have already signed the AARP (0+ / 0-)

      petition.

      Why would they want to diffuse their efforts?

      "Paid Activist" is an oxymoron.

      Redundancy does not hurt.
