Petition the White House to Build a Death Star

According to the Washington Post, the official petition to secure resources and funding for a Death Star has passed the 25,000-signature threshold, which means that according to stated White House policy, it will require an official response.

The petition can be found on the White House’s “We the People: Your Voice in Government” website, and claims “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.”

The Obama administration has yet to issue a statement as to whether or not the project will be seriously considered. However, it is widely expected that both economic and reality factors could prove prohibitive. A different administration, such as that of Jar-Jar W. Bush and Darth Cheney, might have viewed the proposal more favorably. A Death Star project would undoubtably garner wide support in a Republican congress, and both Haliburton and Koch Industries are expected to submit construction bids.
