Boy Scout troop, FTW. Presidents never turn away Boy Scouts who show up to the white house.

Seriously, though, I'm interested in the plans for delivery as well.

Bump.

This needs more exposure IF we are having someone actually show it.

I mean we need explanation. How is the President going to see this. How is this ACTUALLY going to be useful. I want to actually know where this is going, is it just going to be an argumentative piece on the legislation floor? If so, wouldn't we just use the number of PPA members if we wanted to tell politicians how much power we have or how many numbers we have?

It will be used for lobbying and for showing tangible evidence of support for our position. This will be very valuable at next week's state directors' Fly-In. As for President Obama, PPA is working on the best delivery method right now.

I put it on the forum at my local paper. I also mentioned the pokerstars freeroll. I would imagine most newspapers have a forum too.

Edit: I also titled it "Freedom Lovers" and asked for everybody who loves freedom to sign it. I wanted to attract more people to open the thread than just poker players.

Almost 360,000 people have signed it! Bump for our rights!

...in fact, another 10k today - just under 370,000 now. Much of this is thanks to members of this forum - so our sincere thanks for spreading the word! (and thanks to 2+2 for the banners, also.)

Please note that there is one more thing you can do to help the cause - send a letter to your Senator and Representative. Go to one of the following links (your choice), send a letter and you'll get a ticket into a $10,000 freeroll on August 1 (PokerStars) or August 2 (Full Tilt or Cake). Note that you can only get one ticket, and must use the email address you used when you signed up on (Stars, FTP, Cake):

www.nationalpokerweek.com/pokerstars
www.nationalpokerweek.com/fulltilt
www.nationalpokerweek.com/cakepoker

I wish that was the question. The question is " Will we get a response from Obama?"

There's no way of knowing. President Obama has been very quiet about this issue.

We do know we'll go further by doing stuff like this than not. I realize that's a given, but it's important to keep in mind, IMO.

What I don't get is how is the PPA a "one million" member organization and the petition only has 38% of that total right now. PPA might have to re-evaluate this number it kind of comes off as bogus.

You really expected 100% of membership to sign? Less than 50% of the country for in the Presidential Election.

Standard response rates for email requests for action for groups like ours are only 1% - 2%. 38% is a phenomenal response and really serves to show the support our position enjoys.
