Abolishing Daylight Saving Time

Abolish Daylight Saving time!? Can we do it? Yes, we can! Should we!? Well, 4 U.S. States already have! Those 4 States, and our U.S. territories, do not observe Daylight Saving time.
A federal change of the remaining states is what I am petitioning for, not just a state waiver.
Before we dive in, what’s Daylight Saving Time? Some don’t know, and that’s okay. DST starts on the second Sunday in March when the clocks “Spring forward” one hour and DST ends on the first Sunday in November when we “Fall backwards” one hour (back to Standard Time,) disrupting our sleeping patterns not once, but twice a year! Ugh.
So, who else wants the Federal Government and Department of Transportation to end the Uniform Time Act of 1966, give us back our Standard Time and in simpler words, quit messing with our clocks!?
When we “Fall Back” to Standard Time this first Sunday in November 2020, let’s petition to keep it there, permanently!!
The early 1900s wars that encouraged DST are over, there’s little benefits to Daylight Saving, in fact, there’s proven health risks! (Link below)
Facts: The sun sets at about 6:35 right now (Oct 20, 2020) and until peak (Dec 21st,) it will continue to inch earlier and earlier, minute by minute, to a Sunset at approx. 5:30 (if we don’t “Fall Back”) However, with the time change, (because we “Sprung Forward” for DST, the sun will actually set at about 4:30 in winter after we “Fall Back” to Standard Time. (There’s unfortunately nothing we can change about Standard Time)
In case I made “falling back” to Standard Time sound awful, there are benefits in remaining on Standard Time permanently. The benefit of Standard Time in the winter is that the sun will rise at 6:50ish, instead of 7:50ish. This helps to clear our vehicles of frost and ice, warming things up before most of us must be on the roads.
I can’t speak for America. Only you can do your research and sign for yourself. I believe we should all make a vote on it.
Personally, I would rather see Standard Time on a federal level (every state) permanently all year round and sleep patterns undisturbed.
Facts: The Summer Sun sets around 9:04 in DST at its latest time. So, instead of 9:04, it will be 8:04 sunsets in summer in Standard Time.
Will you suffer if the Summer Sun sets an hour earlier?
Please consider signing and sharing this petition targeted at the “Time Controllers,” our Federal Government, the Department of Transportation and specifically the Uniform Time Act of 1966 that was introduced into our amendments making this a standard, federally recognized occurrence.
It is more than just a sleep nuisance, it is a health risk to change the clocks twice a year!
“We found four prominent, elevated risk clusters, including cardiovascular diseases (such as heart attacks), injuries, mental and behavioral disorders, and immune-related diseases such as noninfective enteritis and colitis to be significantly associated with DST shifts in the United States and Sweden. “ - Jun 8, 2020
