We the People: Announcing White House Petitions & How They Work | The White House

Something exciting is coming to WhiteHouse.gov. It's called We the People and it will significantly change how the public -- you! -- engage with the White House online.

Our Constitution guarantees your right to petition our government. Now, with We the People, we're offering a new way to submit an online petition on a range of issues -- and get an official response.

We're announcing We the People before it's live to give folks time to think about what petitions they want to create, and how they are going to build the support to get a response.

An idea whose time has come.

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.

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

I can see this getting all sorts of ugly, really quick.

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

Promptly delt with? WTF does that mean? And if trolls were promptly delt with what would you do?

By the way, thanks for finally posting something informative. I disagree with the intent but at least it wasn't your usual drivel.

Writting something doesn't mean anybody is going to read it or use it in a manner of which you would approve.
