Per the source, specifically:
The petition argues that "the House GOP leadership's use of the Hastert Rule and H. Res 368 to shut down the government and threaten the US

self-evidently a seditious conspiracy."
I saw the petition myself and it looks like it has right around 35k signatures at this point. I think this is very, very dangerous myself, as my

It's not that far between this and petitions for silencing of political dissidents, at least not in my opinion. I'm just hoping that this doesn't
become a big thing.

I think there has to be a recall that could be done. Is this not possible, like Colorado did. That would solve the problem completely. If they
are not serving our interest we institute immediate recall election procedures. That would stop them in their tracks.
We also need term limits, no more career politicians. And no more political pacs where corporate yahoo can give millions to both sides.
Ridiculous, thank supreme Court for that. Lol.
Lastly the popular vote should elect the president. No more electorate, was on the intended for fifty states and so many people and especially the
way they try and manipulate it.
We can change it, independent third party that only mandate is to make the two parties compromise. Means we must gain enough seats in Congress to
