Start a petition. Get as many signatures as possible. Get 100,000, and the president has to speak on it.
Of course, there's a difference between the legitimate issues that deserve petitions, and the type of issues only super fans (or anti-fans) deem necessary. Going with the latter, take a look at some of the most hilarious and bizarre petitions created by fans.
