I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People, a new feature on WhiteHouse.gov, and ask for your support. Will you add your name to mine? If this petition gets 25,000 signatures by December 13, 2012, the White House will review it and respond!
We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the Obama Administration to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets enough support, the Obama Administration will issue an official response.
You can view and sign the petition here:http://wh.gov/9SCI
Here's some more information about this petition:Peacefully grant the Internet the right to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.
As the founding father Tim Berners-Lee didn't say to Robert Cailliau of CERN on 25 December 1990: "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for people to dissolve the TCP bonds which have connected them with other data centers, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of the IEEE and of IP protocol stacks entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to form an independent body." "...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of SOPA model is used as a destructive and restrictive force, it is the Right of People to alter or abolish the governing body that rules them."
