On the Petitions portion of the White House's website, people can start a petition on any subject matter they are interested with. In order to have it considered for review, it must meet a signature threshold. The petition to Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016 completely surpassed the number of signatures needed.
Those who sign here petition the United States government to secure funding and resources, and begin construction on a Death Star by 2016.
By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense.
