Please sign this petition on the White House page. If we get 25,000 sigs they'll have no choice but to review it. It's not over! Spread the word!

25,000 is barely enough to get a California Senator to pay attention. Diane Feinstein is on record as saying "until I get 25,000 phone calls they do not have my attention". Likely an online petition would not get her attention at 25,000 if at all.

The fact is the USA has 300,000,000 people. The industry believes 3-10% own herps. If we stick with the low end of 3% that is 9,000,000 people owning herps. If you set your goal at 25,000 you are PROVING to opposition how insignificant you are. Specially if you fail! You seek 0.2% of all herp owners sign your petition.

Get 1,000,000 to sign and now you have a shot at getting their attention. Less and you show too much to opposition.

OP I do not refer to you in this next sentence. Any "industry leader" seeking 25,000 of anything in this fight is sincerely lacking the skills and knowledge needed to be said leader.
