This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For | We the People: Your Voice in Our Government

This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For | We the People: Your Voice in Our Government:

'via Blog this'

The White House has a relatively new addition to its website:     https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petitions is a page where anyone can start a petition and, with enough signatures, receive an official response to their petition from the White House.   Responses to this new resource have been positive, and the page has made the news several times for interesting petitions.  One of the most humourous was the petition for a "Death Star," which was denied (see link in the title.)



Here is the link to the open petitions page:

In a comment below, 

1.  Share your favorite open petition, and tell me why you like it.

2.  Briefly explain how the internet has changed the way we communicate, and how this has impacted the world.  Use the article above as an example in your explanation.
