The result of last month's presidential elections provided relief for some, outrage for others, and a feeling of concern from Americans as a whole. How will the United States fare for the next four years? Our country needs a stronger economy and Americans deserve job creation. What's more, it's also important that 'Murica remains synonymous with #1.

As of today, more than 17,000 Americans have signed an official petition on www.WhiteHouse.gov to support what they believe is the answer to all of U.S.A.'s problems. The petition demands the U.S. government to secure the funds and resources necessary to begin the construction of the Death Star, of Star Wars fame, by 2016.

The petition states: "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."

A total of 17,350 signatures have pledged the petition by the writing of this article. In fact, the petition only needs another 7,686 to reach its 25,000 signature target by its December 14, 2012 deadline.

Despite the enthusiasm, the "science and space policy" gag petition will never reach the President's desk.

The international political implications aside, the United States, despite it's technological might, simply does not possess the technology necessary to recreate the Galactic Empire's "Ultimate Weapon."

The USS Death Star would have to be as large as the moon and possess a "superlaser" that is powerful enough to destroy our planet [and other planets] with a single energy beam.

Should the USS Death Star get approved for development under the authority of Darth Obama, we will knowingly create a weapon designed to wipe humanity. What's more, the inherent weakness of the Death Star was well documented in the George Lucas masterpiece "Star Wars: A New Hope." This high-profile leak can allow hostile countries like North Korea to respond once they successfully build an X-wing fighter.
