Oh come on. All these anti gun nuts from Australia and England claim that the government isn't out to get us. So they must be right seeing as they
are all knowing and high on their horse. Besides to hell with them is what I say anymore, nowdays it's just to see how many lists you can get on
right? I know exactly where they can stick their lists!!!
I've said this before on the subject and it bears repeating, IMO. I'm not going to suddenly change my tune or be agreeable to everything I've
opposed in public because I've been outspoken for too many years now. Here and elsewhere. There's no benefit trying to pretend at this point. For
those in the same boat (many here and around the net)...might as well make the best of things. Tho I still wouldn't sign that.
For people who have not been really outspoken and opinionated in a major way? Well, let's say if I had it to do over and knew how this would end up
as we stand here today....I'd have kept my big mouth shut starting years ago. It would be better......as this turns real, to be unknown, unremarkable
and generally anonymous I think. That doesn't mean not voicing an opinion but signing one's name to a declaration like that? Basically in Obama's
personal in-box? It's gutsy. I will say that for those on the petition.
After all, it's not a race to who gets to a FEMA / Reeducation camp first. I'm sure there will be beds a'plenty for us all. Some may just get there
sooner to make it all comfy and home-like before the rest. (I get the bunk closest to the door, just so everyone knows in advance)
Yeah, my thinking on the subject of these petitions is simply: if there is no way on God's Green Earth a petition is going to result in any sort of
positive action, why arm a potential anti-American cabal (not saying that's who's in power, but maybe now, maybe at some point in the future) with
specific information which could lead to your secret arrest and indefinite detention and/or execution (care of the PATRIOT Acts' suspension of the
Constitution.?) not that they would need your name on a petition. A personal enemy's "tip" (aka lie) is all that is necessary for you to be legally
"disappeared" forever. Not truly legally, but in the eyes of those enforcing such anti-American laws as the PATRIOT Acts and subsequent nefarious
anti-American legislation, it is, and that's all they need.
Like the point you're making (I think - correct me if I'm wrong), most of us have said things in support of the Constitution, in support of freedom,
in support of the US over the UN, or a future theoretical global dictstorship. That's more than enough already, but I'm not personally of the
"where do I sign up?" mindset when it comes to theoretical "concentration camps" for "patriots." especially when these petitions will accomplish
absolutely nothing. 300 million Americans could sign a petition to ban the federal reserve, or to put a 1000% tarriff on all imported goods while
doing away with income and property taxes. The most we could expect from either is, "we've read the text of the petition, and this isn't going to
work. Thanks for the idea, but its not going to happen."
Now, a petition to request that the National guard be stationed at elementary schools, or that medical "herbs" be legalized nationwide, or that all
potholes big enough to be capable of causing bodily harm through car accidents must be repaired within 2 years of first being reported...those might
go somewhere, at least accomplish something, or start a debate whi h could lead to action.
Not only do I feel the petitions are a waste of time, there IS potential downside should a totalitarian regime, now or in the future,use it to
imprison those who believe in American principals, but I also feel almost as though it coukd be being used as a psy-op to train people to just stop
voicing opinions out of exasperation that doing so will never accomplish anything, and so we might as well be mute. It's already working, as I'm
personally sick of seeing half of the home page plastered with threads about the newest useless petition. I've grown to the point of "who cares?"
almost as fast as I did with the Manti Teo nonsense. People should fo us their efforts on something useful, instead of the recycle bin (aka the White
House petition site.)
