    Have You Ever Signed a Petition?

    It's exactly as the title says, have you ever signed a petition? If so, what petition did you sign and what was the outcome? I recently signed my first petition and I was wondering how many members of DP have also done so or believe that they are valuable and can enact changes.

    I haven't signed any petitions. It doesn't seem as though it means much, because you are only one vote. It's another reason why I don't vote, except with voting neither candidate really appeals to my pov, etc.

    I don't sign petitions because the majority of petition gatherers are just paid shills for special interest groups. Many of them travel state to state, getting paid by the signature, which is then sold to marketing groups.

    Pass.

    I've signed a few. They were all to get a measure on the ballot. I'll sign that sort of petition for pretty much anything. It doesn't even matter whether I support that particular issue.

    I signed a petition recently pertaining to a local issue regarding dog walks in county parks....and I signed another for making our animal shelter a no kill...which would entail new construction to enable the housing of more animals...and of course more money appropriated for staff etc....both petitions failed btw.

    The last petition I signed had to do with allowing a super-Walmart to be built on the other side of town. The city ended up approving the plan, initial building phases were about to move forward when the land owner died. The land fell to his descendants, all as mutual owners (always a bad idea for a will), and they were split on the issue (despite the money Walmart was throwing at them).

    And that's where the project is today, stuck in litigation.

    I'd sign that in a second.

    Although that might cost Castle its star and lose Zoe from Suits. So maybe not.

    I signed a petition outside a supermarket once to fight prop 8. After I signed it gay marriage for the whole United States became legal the next day.
