White House Petitions

The White House website has just added a new feature they call We the People:
Welcome to We the People on WhiteHouse.gov. This tool provides you with a new way to petition the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country. If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.
I've created three petitions, none of which will show up publicly until it receives 150 'signatures'. You have to register at whitehouse.gov before you can create or sign any petitions. There are about 190 that have met the 150 signature threshold.

My three are: take a rational approach to illegal immigration (which is a little terse due to their 800 character limit), only allow contributions to the campaigns of candidates that one can vote for and push for a Constitutional Amendment that states that information about an individual belongs to that individual.

If you like one, please register at whitehouse.gov and sign it.

Edit: The first two petitions have now expired.

Edit: All three petitions have now expired. I would still encourage you to go and look over the petitions that are already there, though the responses I've received on some of those I voted for have not been encouraging.
