White House petition asks that Ron Paul’s signature be added to the Constitution

Following Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul’s farewell speech on the House floor, Paul loyalists have petitioned the White House to allow the constitutional champion’s name to be signed to the Constitution.

“He, more than any other public servant since it’s inception- has championed it, strived to uphold it, and reprimanded those who have not,” the petition says.

The petition only has 23 signatures and will need 24,977 by December 14 in order to reach its goal and require a response from the president. Signers of the petition span the country, from states as Texas to California.

“Ron Paul deserves to have his namesake preserved along with those of our Founding Father’s… And The Constitution deserves to bear Ron Paul’s name,” the petition concludes.
