Petition to 'Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016
' garners over 25,000 signatures
thus requiring an official White House response.
The petition 'Shut down White House petitions, since they never get a sincere response, few read them, & they are ultimately worthless
' has received roughly 1,000 signatures to date, about 24,000 short of the response threshold.
From the White House site: "The right to petition your government is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Throughout our history, Americans have used petitions to organize around issues they care about from ending slavery, to guaranteeing women's right to vote, to the civil rights movement."
