It is definitely nothing unknown that petitions can sometimes change the world for some people or for a lot of people. The majority of us usually scoff and shrug when we witness an individual circulate a rally for signs on any social media platform.
That occurrence is partly due to the fact that several petitions which circulate on our social media feeds do not have any real substance to them or are just not inspirational enough for individuals to drag their fingers through the keyboard to place a digital signature.
Even though cases like the Californian Recall Election of 2003 as well as Caroline Criado’s banknote petition serve as good examples, it should come as no surprise that not all petitions are made to really stir things up. Some are here just for good humor.
Amongst the petitions created to garner laughs, this one from change.org seemingly stands out more than others. The petition is called, Sell Montana to Canada for $1 Trillion to eliminate the national debt.
This famous petition has gained quite a bit of traction on the internet. It has its origins on the social media platform Reddit simply as a joke, but it has slowly and certainly amassed notoriety with individuals actually signing it and leaving laugh-worthy comments on it.
The creator of this petition has presented their claim by stating that there is massive foreign debt in the US and the state of Montana serves no purpose. Just tell Canada that there are beavers and whatever. This statement is about as authentic as individuals believe it to be. But even Montana inhabitants showed their support, asking everyone to sign it so that they could go to Canada minus the cost of moving, jokingly though! Oh well, as long as everyone has some harmless fun, eh?
