First of all I want to say a most heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you who showed your support for this petition! It was refreshing to see that we are not a nation of sheep and there is still a voice out there. I also want to thank all the help I received from Change.org, it was a blessing.
I am sad to say that none of my "elected" officials responded to me regarding this petition. Not my Senators, Representatives or even the President himself, I reached out to all of them. I also reached out to one of my local media outlets, again got no response from them either.
Because Congress had said that there was only an open period of Public Opinion until August 30, which is today, I will be shutting the petition down on Sunday Sept 2. I will of course not stop this even if the stated timeframe by Congress has passed. I am going to place the petition on zip drives and mail to "elected" officials. Dear friends remember this when next you vote! We need a congress to hear our voice!
