Good luck.

If we did not have freedom of petition, the government can easily get away with too much control. Democracy is made for the people rule. If the people can petition the government, using assembly or paper, the citizens get the upside. Petition goes to the press, which goes to the other peoples' eyes. Petition is a great way to spread the word to the other people, and also spread the word to the government that "If you don't stop now, we will do whatever we find reasonable to stop you ourselves," including more petition, sending lobbyists to other branches, etc.

Freedom of petition is similar to free speech, but it spreads a greater word. It goes directly to the government, directly to the press, and directly to and from the people, while free speech only goes to either the people and the press or to the government.

"mrpilotgamer forfeited this round." Great argument.

Due to the fact that I cannot place any turn-backs, I will not place any arguments until con does.
