- Allow the red counties of Oregon and northern California to form a 51st state

- Require religious organizations to pay taxes

- Criminalize offending Mohammed, Moses and Jesus

- Debate Joe Arpaio on TV about Immigration Reform

- Obama show your birth certificate and college transcripts

- Recount the election results

- Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi...

- End the EPA and assess environmental laws on economic impact

- Ban circumcision of babies

- Legalize marijuana

- Regulate Internet porn

- Answer all of Ron Paul's questions

- Allow soldiers to put their hands in their pockets

- Allow college graduates to trade their diplomas in for 100% tuition refund

- Make insurance cover sex-change operations

This topic gets a mention in Forbes.


I don't know if any petition that gets 25,000 signatures gets a response from the White House, but there have been 82 responses so far:
