I think you're underestimating people. One would have to be an idiot to not know that.

Bleh... I'm pretty sure they signed it just so they wouldn't upset the guy posing as a tyrant petitioner without raising a ruckus such as "**** off!". Street advertisers and petitioners are a PITA. Nonetheless, I'm pretty sure this guy stages most of his videos being mindless. Not that groundbreaking for an "activist" like him. It might make a good analogy with people in Congress voting for bills without reading it (see:
Pelosi: "We Have to Pass the Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It" - YouTube and Read the Bills Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) but that's about it.

Imagine, just like Obamacare where it had to pass to see what was in it!

That kind of BS may pass with the PC but it won't pass with me. Neither will Obamacare.

Just last week I was pestered twice by ACLU employees or volunteers wanting me to sign a petition having to do with "gay rights". I just simply said I'm not interested and walked away. Why could not the people in this video do the same?

My guess is that, and keeping in mind dozens of similar videos created by Mark Dice, that the vast majority of humans walking about in this nation in times of late are nothing more than sheeple who have no clue as to what's going on outside of their favorite sports team or television drama. They're presented with something that initially sounds good to them (supporting Obama), but lack the rational aforethought to ask what exactly they'll be doing to provide such support and what ramifications there may be from such action.

"Baaah" go the sheeple...

What is the difference. Obama has ignored much of the Bill of Rights anyway. His Obamacare intrudes on the Freedom of Religion; his wiretapping of AP and FOX tramples Freedom of the Press; his IRS affair against the Tea Party tramples Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Assembly. Besides that he has no regard for the Constitution. He changes legislation every few days depending on what the polls are saying that day. Can anyone see what is happening here?

I never sign anything. Ever. Mostly it's because of the deceptive tactics so often used by "legitimate" signature-gatherers whose only incentive is to get paid.
