Obama has set up a White House web site to allow people to petition Congress for redress of their concerns – something that the Constitution already allows. His purpose is pure politics – wanting to make it appear there is a groundswell of citizens wanting action on his tax increasing, socialism expanding legislative agenda.
This should backfire – I say should. It should generate a myriad of petitions from citizens wanting Congress to do things like Impeach Obama, repeal Obamacare, fire the Czars that Obama installed without legislative approval, etc.
However, since the White House will be filtering the site – I suspect that the only petitions generated will be those that advance his agenda
And since his website requires identification of the signers so that those that offend Obama’s minions can be investigated by the IRS or Homeland security or Secret Service.
