Default Obama says no to Death Star petition

Well I guess this response was to expected from the peace at any price crowd occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

The Obama administration will not be building a Death Star.

Responding to a petition on the White House Web site, science and technology adviser Paul Shawcross tells disappointed “Star Wars” fans, “This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For.”


http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...tar-petittion/

Official White House Response to Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016

This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For


The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn't on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:

The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We're working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.

The Administration does not support blowing up planets.

Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?

The White House also rejected petitions to allow South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Texas, and Louisiana to secede

Official White House Response to Peacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government. and 8 other petitions .

Our States Remain United

By Jon Carson

Thank you for using the White House's online petitions platform to participate in your government.

In a nation of 300 million people -- each with their own set of deeply-held beliefs -- democracy can be noisy and controversial. And that's a good thing. Free and open debate is what makes this country work, and many people around the world risk their lives every day for the liberties we often take for granted.

But as much as we value a healthy debate, we don't let that debate tear us apart.

Our founding fathers established the Constitution of the United States "in order to form a more perfect union" through the hard and frustrating but necessary work of self-government. They enshrined in that document the right to change our national government through the power of the ballot -- a right that generations of Americans have fought to secure for all. But they did not provide a right to walk away from it. As President Abraham Lincoln explained in his first inaugural address in 1861, "in contemplation of universal law and of the Constitution the Union of these States is perpetual." In the years that followed, more than 600,000 Americans died in a long and bloody civil war that vindicated the principle that the Constitution establishes a permanent union between the States. And shortly after the Civil War ended, the Supreme Court confirmed that "[t]he Constitution, in all its provisions, looks to an indestructible Union composed of indestructible States."

If the White House really is serious about stopping scession it should consider building a Death Star before Texas does

Texas wouldn't build a Death Star, it would just change textbooks to say a Death Star has always existed.
