We will be addressing FAQs on this page.
The White House petition’s site works differently from other sites. For one, there’s a thresholds of 150 signatures before they allow the petition to be searchable.
Well, after just one day, we passed the threshold and we’re featured on the front page of White House “We the People” petition site!
As of this posting, there’s 171 signatures. Considering that there’s over 500+ reblogs, some might feel defeated. This is a marathon and we have to stay the course until we get the 25K signatures, and then onward to 50K so that we will get acknowledgement from the White House.
So, keep up the good work. However, take this BEYOND tumblr. Tell your friends on other social networks and off the Internet! Every signature helps!

We know it’s a pain to sign up for yet ANOTHER web site. But that’s easily a first world problem we can overcome!
And yes, we know petitions are iffy, but wouldn’t it be worth doing if you hear the Obama Administration at least say “we hear you?” After all, when the Obama Administration says ANYTHING (especially with Republicans looking), you’ll know they will drum up talks again, which will inspire MORE people to finally get this holiday change once and for all!
So if you haven’t done it, sign the petition.
Also, if you have stories to share, tag your story with #reconsidercolumbusday and we’ll share it.
