Messages Sent So Far
Please stop the messing with our schedules. It's an antiquated practice that only aggravates people. As it is Arizona, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, and America Samoa do not participate in this practice.

Daylight Savings Time is dangerous. When clocks change, more people have heart attacks, car accidents and workplace injuries when the clocks spring ahead. We have to keep asking our elected officials to abolish daylight savings time.

Please stop the changing of time. It messes with our internal clock in our bodies, babies and animals. It holds no help since we get the same daylight each day either way. It's so stressful and just taking this away would help.

Why give ourselves jetlag twice a year? As a parent, the adjustment period is honestly a nightmare, so let's just stop.

The turning of the clocks back in November, is a WASTE of time ! Nobody wants it to start getting dark, at four o clock in the afternoon. The early darkness only makes people miserable, and its confusing! This needs to be VOTED on by the public. And a law should be passed to stop this ridiculous practice.

End daylight savings time! The practice is antiquated and does not conserve energy. Studies have shown that while it does save energy on lighting, it increases the use of energy for heating and cooling especially in the morning. This fact coupled with the fact that lighting sources are now more energy efficient, should be a solid case to end DST. Another important factor to consider is that setting the clocks ahead in the spring is believed to have negative and even deadly health impacts on the population. On this day, sleep schedules and bio rhythms are greatly disrupted causing an increase in fatal car accidents and heart attacks.

Please end daylight savings..God fixed it the way he wanted it and I think we should abide by his wishes.. Daylight savings does nothing to help us only makes us feel bad by switching back and forth.

Stop this ridiculous practice of switching the time back and forwards. Either move it, and leave it there, or leave it where it is.

Daylight Savings Time is a useless practice and EXTREMELY difficult for parents of Special needs children who rely on routine. This practice is outdated and causes more health problems and lost productivity then the benefits which time has shown do not occur. Let's end this barbaric practice. Think of the children. Think of the parents.

We can do this please wake up America,because our children our the reason why we are here and we our really really putting them in a very dangerous health hazard by taking away an hour of their sleep for even longer now because we extended daylight savings time especially for those who have to wake up very early and go to school the next day and for little infants too,children need their rest and so do their parents so please America lets do the right thing because this is one Nation under God with Liberty and Justice for all amen

Can we get Trump to pass a bill to end Daylight savings time or atleast get to go back to where it used to begin ,by starting in early April and ending in late October ,in my opinion it should end in early October in my opinion this would be the second best thing for society

Extending DST is so so pointless ,plus I have ADD/ADD and it makes it much much easier for me to fall asleep early in the evening because an extra hour of sleep really help people who are severely challenged like me and since California is going to vote it this coming November to end DST I don't see why every other State can't do it

The only way we are going to stop this is going permanently on Standard Time only. Or to make it fair for both parties is to have equal 6 months the end of April to the end of October before Halloween to move it forward and fall back on October through April. We have to do this because think about it...the sun moves in different seasons...We move the clock ahead because the earth rotates with the Spring/Summer solace for more light and then the earth rotates with the Fall/Winter solace for less light. We need to get rid of the March spring ahead to the end of April and we need to move the November back to Standard Time to the last weekend of October....before Halloween...the way it use to be...that is the only way this is going to work. Vote NO for Prop 7. This is going to make Daylight Savings Time all year around????? Not permanent Standard Time. Dear Fellow Americans: Read the California General Election on all propositions and please vote on November 6th. We need your voices to be heard and your comments in this time of change. We can do this!

I am opposed of DST. It is misrepresented and a health hazard to everyone in some way. Our Earth moves naturally, it does not need a clock moving back or forward to do so. I appreciate this petition going through. Thank you for your and effort.

Daylight saving time is a complete waste. All it does is make people late or early for work! It is completely useless.

I favor year round standard time. To appease businesses, most work schedules could be moved to their real time equivalents while on DST. For example are 9 to 5 schedule could be moved to 8 to 4.

There are many health benefits to ending daylight saving time. Donald Trump hopefully has the authority to end it this year 2018 for the good of all the people in the U.S.A.

Energy saving was the rationale for Daylight Saving Time, but the promised energy saving has never materialized. In fact, the best studies prove that Americans use MORE domestic electricity when they practice daylight saving. Moreover, when people turn television off and go to park or mall in evening sunlight, they do not walk. They get in their cars and drive. Daylight “Saving” actually increases gasoline consumption. Daylight Saving Time is a fallacious substitute for genuine energy conservation policy. Spanish dictator General Franco moved Spain onto Central European Time in 1942 to follow Nazi Germany. Let us not allow madness to dictate our measurement of time. More than 80 percent of respondents to the largest online survey in European Union history are in favor of abolishing changing the clocks in summer and winter. Living beings seek pleasure and instinctively avoid pain. Getting out of bed an hour early is pain! It disrupts your biorhythm, causing difficulty sleeping, irritation and lack of concentration. I know that. You know that. Contact your government representative and make your case, send your message: Stop the Daylight Saving Madness!
