I continue to sign online petitions. While not so deluded as to believe signing these will have any influence on policy (all my representatives have strong ideological commitments, either in agreement with or opposed to my own, so that no change in their actions or rhetoric can realistically be expected), signing them does make me “feel better” for a time, and I hope gives some encouragement to those who have gone to the trouble to create and post the petitions. That said, here’s the latest batch. I encourage you to sign them yourself if you agree with them, if for no other reason than to encourage others who also agree with them.
