    Potential outcomes:

    1. Gets pulled in the first week.
    2. Those expressing an opinion contrary to the White House can expect "investigators" visiting.
    3. Real boilerplate responses.
    4. A free bumper sticker.

    Will be interesting, either way. Hopefully voices will be heard, and trolls will be few (and promptly dealt with).

    This is the dumbest idea in awhile. This will be used for nothing but hate. Everyone knows the opposition is always the loudest. Dumb idea
