COLLECTING SIGNATURES ON THE HAWAIIAN PETITION, THE OLD FASHIONED WAY
by John Charlton
(Jan. 19, 2010) — The Post & Email launched perhaps the most important Petition Drive in 2010 just two weeks ago aimed at cajoling the government of the State of Hawaii to releasing the original vital records of Obama. The Petition Campaign enables each petitioner to send 90+ letters, one to each of the 90 elected officials who govern the State of Hawaii (Governor, Lt. Governor, and House and Senate Members).
So far about 60 persons have signed on to this Petition. Signatures are being collected electronically, because that is the cheapest way to print the letters.
However, even though signatures are entered in electronically through this URL:
that does not mean that we cannot gather signatures the Old Fashioned Way.
Indeed, if even our most avid readers printed out a copy of the Petition from:
and began to ask their family, friends, relatives, and co-workers to sign on, many, many signatures could be gathered in a short time.
For those who wish to do this, The Post & Email has compiled a handy packet which includes a PDF file of the full text of the Petition, the Short text, and a Blank, Signature gathering page, where your contacts can print their name and address.

The Signature Petition Gathering form explains that this Petition Campaign is being conducted by The Post & Email, and that for the fee of $10, The Post & Email will send the short form petition letter to the 90+ leaders of the Hawaii Government in the name of the person who signs the petition.
Then, those of you who manage to gather signatures and money can use our online form to add the signatures and transfer the funds:
Please note that we are not retaining the personal information of the signer’s addresses or names, nor that of the Paypal accounts or credit cards used to pay for the signers’ signing on to the petition through our electronic interface; after the petitions are printed, this information will be destroyed.
One of the practical goals to get this petition before the eyes of 1,000,000 Americans is to put an ad about it on The Drudge Report. The Drudge Report’s advertising agency has agreed to take the ad.
If we can raise the $7,500 to put it up, we will do that. Donations for that part of our campaign can be sent through this online form:
As of the posting of this report, $205 has been donated to the Drudge Ad Initiative.
I encourage everyone to talk about this Petition Drive: America is ripe to heed this important and decisive initiative, but we must do our work to make the public aware of it and of its unique importance to America.
