Test that organization please. I suspect they are watering down our efforts to make change OFFICIAL. Do it like this.

These things are good BUT, if we neglect official actions that can make permanent change like Article V, we are really screwing up.

It's my petition. They can't "water it down" I can print the names of everyone that signed it and give it directly to whoever need to see it. Don't forget the efforts of, a week ago. Petition and letter drives can work.

And I'd hope the people here are interested enough in change that the minute it would take to sign and share this, won't cause them to neglect the cause. Heck, you've already spent at least as much time responding to me as it would take you to sign and share it.

They divide our action away from official action and give a false sense of influence.

I tried to sign the petition but the site would not load. Obviously it is a corporate assimilation of technology I cannot afford.

Really? I have the oldest POS computer. I figured anything I can do, everyone should be able to.

Anyway, what would the "official" action against this bill be?

I'm running a 2001 G4 mac with firefox 1.5.0, it chokes on html5 and the XHTML codes pretty bad. The non intel chip can't deal with it.

Article V is the only way to have any real effect anywhere. Corporations do pay attention to consumer opinions, so online petitions do have some effect. Politicians do to, but its all limited and based in their special iterests IF they respond at all.

The secret gov is scared shitless of Article V, because we can end its reign quite easily IF we can get over our TV culture conditionsing and multiplated, dynamic conditioning of sub socials. In other words, we should ALWAYS be doing Article V, and if online petitions do come up, participate.

We absolutely need a constitutional government. Our rights and freedom are toast without it eventually, soon probably.

Thanks for the link. I believe these online petitions can be quite effective in an election year - particulary if we learn our representitives voting records.
