Petition to Build Death Star Gaining Steam

Death Star
20th Century Fox

On the White House’s website there is a “We The People” section, which allows citizens to “petition the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country.” If any submitted petition gets 25,000 E-signatures, then the White House will review the proposal.

Our favorite of these petitions this month has to be from Colorado man “John D” who, as we reported last week, wants the government to secure resources and funding to begin the construction of a Death Star by 2016.

His rationale for building the mega-weapon from the ‘Star Wars‘ movies is as much public works project than direct threat to the little green men who could be living below Mars’ surface.

“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,” he writes.

So far, the petition has over 19,000 signatures. However, the fun ends on December 14 so ‘Star Wars’ fans and folks who have ‘Independence Day’-related nightmares need to log on and sign on immediately.

If the petition does hit 25,000 it is going to pose a problem for the Obama Administration. While having a Death Star would be undeniably awesome, the costs of building one are probably prohibitive. According a recent study it would cost $852,000,000,000,000,000 — or 13,000 times the world’s GDP — just to produce the steel required to build the weapon.
