Space Holdings has started a petition where you can show your support for the Vision for Space Exploration.
http://www.space.com/goformars/

Text of the petition is as follows:

To our Nation's Leaders:

I support our nation's plan to continue America's legacy of space exploration by venturing out into the solar system in financially responsible and deliberate steps.

Returning to the Moon and continuing on to Mars and beyond will benefit all Americans with new discoveries and technologies, new consumer products, a more robust economy, and advanced knowledge to inspire our children and grandchildren to continue the journey.

Let's get going and move beyond low Earth orbit.

Not really. This petition is in support of the new Moon-Mars "Vision For Space Exploration," while the Mars Society's petition opposes its, pushing instead to leave out the return to the Moon and instead aim for a more ambitious (read: silly) goal of landing on Mars by 2015.
