UPDATE: September 9, 2013
This is the third time the link to the White House petition, “No War in Syria,” has changed. Gee, you’d almost think Obama is trying to prevent the American People from expressing their opinion.
Here’s something I found interesting. The WH poll against war in Syria has been online since August 27th and as of this post it only has 24,180 votes. While online polls on less traveled sites have many more participants voting. How can this be?
Where AOL Users Stand on Syria Crisis:
As of 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, AOL.com’s unofficial opinion poll had exceeded 167,000 respondents, with an overwhelming majority opposed to a military strike in Syria. 76 percent of respondents said the US should not become entangled in the complicated Middle East nation…. Read more
MoveOn.Org: Say “No!” to US strikes on Syria!
Even MoveOn.Org currently has 54,141 signatures. BTW, yes, this is a “liberal site, so what? It’s going to take all of us, Left, Right and Middle to unite on issues. That’s how we win. Vote Now…
There are many more examples of polls with high participation compared with the presidents poll – search for yourself. So, is the WH poll rigged? Gosh, I hope not.
PS – My personal favorite mentioned on a popular website was:
Poll: Majority Of Americans Approve Of Sending Congress To Syria
“…I believe it is in the best interest of the United States, and the global community as a whole, to move forward with the deployment of all U.S. congressional leaders to Syria immediately,” respondent Carol Abare, 50, said in the nationwide telephone survey, echoing the thoughts of an estimated 9 in 10 Americans who said they “strongly support” any plan of action that involves putting the U.S. House and Senate on the ground in the war-torn Middle Eastern state. “With violence intensifying every day, now is absolutely the right moment—the perfect moment, really—for the United States to send our legislators to the region.”
“In fact, my preference would have been for Congress to be deployed months ago,” she added.
Citing overwhelming support from the international community—including that of the Arab League, Turkey, and France, as well as Great Britain, Iraq, Iran, Russia, Japan, Mexico, China, and Canada, all of whom are reported to be unilaterally in favor of sending the U.S. Congress to Syria—the majority of survey respondents said they believe the United States should refocus its entire approach to Syria’s civil war on the ground deployment of U.S. senators and representatives, regardless of whether the Assad regime used chemical weapons or not.
In fact, 91 percent of those surveyed agreed that the active use of sarin gas attacks by the Syrian government would, if anything, only increase poll respondents’ desire to send Congress to Syria…. Read more

Please sign this petition on the White House website:
Short link: http://wh.gov/l4lFh
Here’s the text:
NO TO WAR IN SYRIA
The American people do not want the United States to go to war in Syria. There are no American interests being threatened in Syria. Syria has not attacked the United States, nor American citizens, nor has Syria attacked United States armed forces personnel. There has been no Congressional declaration of war. There has been no United Nations Security Council resolution authorizing the use of force in Syria. To go to war in Syria at this time would be illegal and unconstitutional. To go to war in Syria at this time would be criminal under international law, the crime of aggression. The President of the United States is not authorized under law to declare war on his own. If the President will decide to go to war without a declaration of war from Congress, that would be an impeachable offense.
Sign the petition here:
While there, you might as well sign this one as well. The text is distracting, but the “No to War” message is the same:
Pledge that there will be no American military intervention in Syria:
Here’s more for you to do:
2. Send this info to all of your friends, family and co-workers.
3. Participate in street protests against the War on Syria.
PS – If you have suggestions for additional online petitions against the War on Syria, please let me know [lindamuller at buchanan.org] and I’ll post them here.
