‘Since teabaggers and Fox News seized control of the Republican Party directly after the 2010 elections, there has been a preponderance of petitions decrying everything from the Christian right’s attacks on women and gays to the Supreme Court’s unwavering devotion to corporations and Catholic dogmata’.
‘It is true that Americans opposed to losing their democracy to religious and corporate fascism are rightly frustrated’,
‘But it is just as frustrating that any American is under the delusion that signing a petition is ever going to achieve or change anything, or prevent America’s slide into a corporate theocracy’.
‘There is an inconvenient truth Americans are going to have to come to grips with even though it is painful’;
‘No amount of signatures on a petition equals one vote at the ballot box’.
