Change.org: Stop plans to become Conservative platform

      Portland, OR

Recently revealed documents show that Change.org plans to begin allowing Conservative groups and Republican groups to start buying advertisements that are simply the polar opposite of what change.org is for and what its use believe in.

Change.org has made these new plans secretly and hidden their plans from the users to avoid fall out.

Keep change.org a open platform with good values not influenced by corporations and conservative censorship.

      Thank you for sharing your feedback with us!

      First, you might be wondering: why is Change.org responding now, almost a year after I started my petition? Truth be told, we didn’t have a way for decision makers – the pe...

      Conservatism as an ideology is, by definition, against the goals of this website. The ideology is in support of the status-quo whilst change.org is for changing the status-quo. To allow this is to go against the very values this website perpetuates.

      Why would change ever want to do this to us?

      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.

      If change org becomes a platform for social stagnation, I guess we will take our activities elsewhere.

      Partiality should be the first concern
