    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0911/62502.html#ixzz1WjSomXQPThe White House on Thursday announced a new way it will keep in touch with public concerns — by promising to consider online petitions that get at least 5,000 supporters.

    The idea behind “We the People” — as the program will be called — is that anyone with an idea or cause can go to the White House website and make a public pitch for support. If the idea gets 5,000 backers within 30 days, said White House spokeswoman Sandra Abrevaya, a “working group of policy officials” will respond.

    OPPfeiffer’s response: “If there are ideas that are ones that we fundamentally disagree with or are bad ideas and enough people come forward, we’ll respond to why we disagree with that idea and look for a way to work together on other ideas.”


    Trolls will be ignored.

    Well, I'm not a troll and I voted for Obama, And I'd sure like to get about 5 million signatures of those of us who are sickened by all that damn money that went down the banks money pits saving them from the results of their own actions that nearly brought down the whole worlds economy. In addition to all that money, the Feds handed out 1.4 trillion to help out some foreign banks, and where the hell has Obama's efforts been for jobs while he was letting the TBaggers control the agenda on the makshift debt limit crisis and where's 1.4 trillion for main street ?


    One more thing, we need a peoples lobby that is present and asking how what is being proposed will halp the average Americans, everytime any lobbyist from any special interest, AIPAC, bank or large corporation is trying to influence a congressman to vote in their favor, I'll bet that would bring in a good number of signatures too.
