Change.org built its business by selling itself as a trustworthy ally of those who believe in progressive values such as workers' rights, environmental stewardship, opposition to discrimination based on sexual orientation, anti-militarism, and a woman's right to choose. Now, according to the Huffington Post, Change.org is abandoning that trust and embracing a mercenary model of political engagement that allows "for corporate advertising, Republican Party solicitations, astroturf campaigns, anti-abortion or anti-union ads and other controversial sponsorships, according to internal company documents." This decision is a slap in the face to Change.org's user base and to progressives at large.

      Corporations are not people - people have consciences and empathy for their fellow man.

      Our country is quickly becoming a country not of Democracy but of Corporate theocracy undermining the basic rights of every citizen in this country. Right-Wing causes will do the same. We need more compassion and understanding...you are taking a giant step backwards by allowing these entities any power or control over you. Right wingers and Corporate interests are contributing the the moral decay in our country by focusing on suppression, fear and hatred. Why would you support that?

      This could help the poor and keep more and more people from going poor. The recession we're facing now could go worse than the great depression or be just as bad.

      This is to help with the economic downturn. I have a petition below that’s for the economy and ridiculous gas prices and other things affecting us. Let’s sign mine. I need 1,000 signatures in total.

      We should also take a stand against greed. I blamed it all on high gas prices for driving schools on waiting lists. It's common sense for first time learners for driving to have behind the wheel for car insurance reduction and most important safety of learning.

      We are taking stands against greed as well. You people who signed this petition should sign mine if you haven't. The author of this petition should sign mine on the link as well if haven’t.

      There’s also a petition on sign on. Here’s that link below as it’s for the reshaping the world to improve our lives.

      Too bad. It'll be their death. There's better creative ways to make money that stays true to their initial vision.
