Whitehouse.gov, the official Web site for the US executive branch, allows users to create online petitions. One of them, a petition to "Abolish the TSA, and use its monstrous budget to fund more sophisticated, less intrusive counter-terrorism intelligence", has over 23,000 signatures and is the third most popular petition on the site at the time of this writing.
