"Stop the Obama Constitutional Crisis" petition!
Petition Frequently Asked Questions:
What does this petition actually do?
Unlike other online petitions every visitor signing can leave comments and send private emails directly to Congress.
This will make your petition more effective because the public and the media can view all the comments in the online petition. Most importantly, your group's emails and letters are sent directly to your elected representatives with your petition text. This combination of an online presence and direct communication to Congress gives your message as much impact as possible.
Is there a cost for signing the petition and sending email?
It is FREE to sign the petition and send emails to Congress.
I need to know that my e-mail and other information is secure.
Who will be the final recipient of this petition? How long does it take?
After people sign a public petition, they have an option of also sending emails and printed letters to Congress. Most signers do that. The emails are delivered shortly thereafter (depending on how busy the servers are) and the letters usually the next business day. It can take time for Congressional staff to process the incoming emails and letters — sometimes a week or longer, depending on the office and the overall volume of mail they are receiving.
For some petitions, the petition organizers will also export and independently deliver the petition as a whole to further reinforce the message.
