Well looks like things are heating up, I am very curious as to if this even gets addressed. If anything I hope this shows the poiticians we are all fed up with their crap.edit on 25-1-2013 by sandman441 because: added the link, I thought it was automatic
I have never let anyone walk all over me and won't start anytime soon. And I refuse to live my life in fear of being on some list or in some camp because I spoke my mind. Suppose that could be the death of me oneday.

If this petition gets the 100,000 signatures (or they honor the 25k based on start date) for a 100% success.....all these names are on the record and DHS reports now for being dissidents strong enough to make such a rash statement and sign names to it. Yet, what was actually accomplished? That's the part I look at first.

Treason is giving aid and comfort to an enemy. This proposed legislation, which I disagree with violently, does not fall under treasonable acts. I get that you disagree with it, so too do I, but it's not treason. Stupid politics? Yes.edit on 1/25/2013 by seagull because: Dab speeling...
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.
The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.
