    And I can't get on the site. Too busy.

    We the People is easy to use. Here's how it works:

    Create or Sign a Petition: Anyone 13 or older can create or sign a petition on WhiteHouse.gov asking the Obama Administration to take action on a range issues.
    Build Support and Gather Signatures for your Petition: It's up to you to build support for a petition. Use email, Facebook, Twitter and word of mouth to tell your friends, family and coworkers about the petitions you care about.
    The White House Reviews and Responds: If a petition reaches 5,000 within 30 days, it will be reviewed by a standing group of White House officials, referred to any other relevant policymakers and an official response will be issued.
    The idea of petitioning the White House or the government isn't new, but this tool is. The White House has never tried anything like this before, and as a result, we'll probably have to make some adjustments as we go. As we do, we'll keep you posted on the White House blog.

    So think about an issue you care about, who you can reach out to join you, and get started:

    http://www.WhiteHouse.gov/Petitions

    P.S. Help spread the word about this new tool by forwarding this email to anyone else who would find We the People interesting.

    You know this is going to get just as much well-deserved ridicule as ATTACK WATCH!, right? :rofl:

    They put up a maintenance sign. I don't think they were expecting the traffic.

    Silly White House.

    They probably don't realize that the US has citizens.

    Disappointing execution; but this happens in the tech world. They should have soft launched then promoted. These wide eyed youngins don't understand but trust me they have lessons learned today! :lol:
