A PETITION that asks for the entire US government to be removed and replaced with technical people and Eric Schmidt as CEO is not very close to its 100,000 target.

The petition was created by Justine Tunney, a Google employee and veteran of the Occupy movement. It opened this week, and with almost 30 days left to run the petition has just 22 signatures, meaning that it needs over 99,000 for serious consideration.

The petition is directed at President Barack Obama, and it respectfully asks him to step down from his position.

"I have the utmost respect for you Sir. America is a great country and you've worked hard to bring its affairs in order. But I'm afraid you're fighting a battle that can't be won. The Washington regime has become incompetent over the years. It is no longer able to face the difficult challenges that lay ahead. I think it's time for a peaceful change," wrote Tunney.

The petition requests that the President call for a national referendum on three issues. The first of these suggests that all government employees should be retired with full pensions. The second proposes that administrative authority should be transferred to the information technology industry. The third presents the proposition that Eric Schmidt should be appointed as CEO of America.

"It's time for the US Regime to politely take its exit from history and do what's best for America," it added. "The tech industry can offer us good governance and prevent further American decline."

The White House will consider petitions once they hit a 100,000 signatures.

According to the Telegraph Tunney said that she reckoned that the Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt would run the oval office like a boss.

"It's because I'm a Googler, I'm familiar with Eric Schmidt being very good at running a successful organisation. He was responsible for building Google, which is a benevolent corporation that's making the world a better place," she said.

"If he can do it for Google, maybe he can do it for government. What we need to see is a regime change. Right now our government is being controlled by just one industry - the legal profession. All the politicians in our government, except three engineers, are lawyers". µ
