1.) Do you think your state will actually secede? No.
2.) Why did you sign it?
To draw attention to the fact that our government is no longer working in the best interests of the country as a whole, but rather only for special
interest groups and those with the money to lobby congress.
3.) What do you hope to achieve?
See answer to number 2 above
I cannot speak for anyone other than myself so let me start by saying if this gets my name on a list of dissidents so be it, I am already classified
as a potential terrorist because I am a conservative Veteran and ATS member.
4.) Why this petition?
Petitions for term limits, against lobbying efforts, and specific executive orders would be ignored.
I do not advocate for a Direct Democracy we are and have always been a Republic but our Federal Government has quietly removed many of the States’
rights and powers as well as the rights and authority of the people.

I would like to see a Government that protects our borders from Illegal Immigrants and the Mexican drug cartels.

world, nor are we the enforcement arm of the U. N.
I would like to see a government that will not allow GMO foods to be used in our country, but that should be handled at the state level.

I would like to see elected officials to no longer receive full pay and benefits for life after one term in office unless they are going to grant the
same benefit to military service members after one enlistment.
I would like to see a government that is limited in size and scope as was intended by the framers of our constitution.

I want to eat meat that is my choice.
