( - Musician Sheryl Crow has started a petition to shorten the U.S. presidential election cycle.

“This election cycle has been extremely damaging and has incited fear and hatred in a country founded on the beauty of our differences and the desire to lift each person, no matter race, religion, political party, or economic status, to reach his or her fullest potential,” Crow’s petition letter states.

“We love our country. It is because we love our country that we want to limit the length of the campaign season. By tweaking the Presidential primary calendar, the DNC and RNC could drastically reduce the amount of time we are exposed to presidential campaigns.”

“Countries across the globe have limited campaign seasons to as short as 6 weeks. With an organized system, a successful, informative, professional campaign could be run,” the petition continues.

Crow has spoken about shortening the election cycle before, telling Yahoo! news in a recent interview, “I think we need to address some real problems in this nation in a logical way, and I think American people need to be involved in it.”

“That’s why I’m saying sign your name to a petition to limit the campaign period,” Crow said.

At the time of publication, Crow’s petition has received over 8,000 signatures since it was posted. Its goal is to be delivered to both the Republican and Democratic National Committees.
