|It's clear that petitions are useless, but it's even more egregious when they're promoted by the government and left out to dry for 2 years.|
We shouldn't accept this from our government.
I don't want us to be a community of sheeple who complain a little bit, but ultimately just shrug our shoulders. We shouldn't have to stand for reckless, almost-criminal, prosecutorial abuse. It's basically the same as a cop beating up somebody to "make an example"
Should we code something? Organize a rally in the major cities? Write code to make it easy to start rallies? What're some good ideas to show our discontent?
