Posted on 11/12/2012 4:07:03 PM PST by PubliusMM
I've just opened the Ohio Secession Petition at whitehouse.gov and would like your support. If you are a Buckeye, take a look, and sign up. Needs 25000 signatures by 12/12/2012 to force a response from the 0bamunists.
Until the first 150 signatures are in place, the access is via this link:
BTW..these petitions are also supposed to be presented to your state legislature.
Yep, and I’ve also invited my state and federal legislators to sign on. They are aware...
I am not a Buckeye but I still signed. I was signature #2.
Is this the same Ohio that (supposedly) went for Obama in both 2008 and 2012? You might be fighting a losing battle here.
I understand your zeal for this, but truly feel the less info I give the Feds about me and my family, the better off we’ll be, in the long run.
I love my country and fear my government. The tipping point has been reached, and this is an administration that is increasingly not putting up with opposition.
In other words, open enrollment for the Obama Regime’s Watch Lists!
Act now and you’ll get free IRS audits and membership in the exclusive No-Fly list!
Went for Zero on the strength of the metro areas, Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati, with 128 precincts in Cleveland where Romney was counted at less than 1% of the votes counted.
Leave out the metros, and Romney was in at 60%+
But, yes...this is the same Ohio.
Yes; the SAME Ohio that had Wood County (home of Bowling Green State University by coincidence) that had 140%+ of Registered Voters voting for Obama.
Why would you petition the Federal government?
Petition our State legislators.
.......and membership in the exclusive No-Fly list!
So exclusive, you’ll never even know you’re on it!!
1) Why would I want to give my name to the Secret Police?
2) What “response”? They’ll hit the “delete” button.
First. Isn’t this treason, secondly individuals can’t secede. Only states can.
This is a good productive idea. It’s an organized public protest. Conservatives don’t march in streets unless their carrying guns. Tea party had huge gatherings . Many more including myself don’t do that stuff.
Surprised to see many NJ town on list.
If you could spread the word to friends & family to sign document it would give more credibility to it. Above 10 million would be good.
I think blue state signatures will also get more publicity , not to discount red state folks. Just that their more expected to do this.
2/3rd of the state legislature in Ohio is controlled by GOP, as are most congressional districts. The decent people there are held captive by a couple of urban areas.
We start a new political party...
With nationwide scope...
Like the tea party (yeah, I know it’s not an official political party)...
And call that new party...
The “Secession Party”
(And, yes, Tea Party “members” should be welcome, as well as all republicans/conservatives who support the idea, and perhaps even a few libertarians).
Excellent idea, adorno. Where do we sign up?
This petition is a way to put the 0bamunists on notice that not everyone is willing to simply turn tail and run, in the face of their incessant trampling of the Constitution. It is a way to let people lend their voice to the rising din that is beginning to build, across the country.
I appreciate everyone’s help, and everyone’s concerns as well.
I’ve been on about every darn list the Libs could put together, over the years. Another one won’t make a big difference.
How about we start working on getting conservatives into the Senate in 2014? And they don’t have to be from the GOP, the libs can get independents in there, why can’t we?
Treason? Where did that come from? Treason is the flaunting of the US Constitution after swearing an oath to protect and defend it.
Treason is the senseless squandering of the entire wealth of a formerly free nation in pursuit of a progressive utopia that fails to realize the only wealth the government has is that which it has confiscated from the people.
Treason is the subjugation of an entire nation under unchecked bureaucracies created without mandate of the people, and preserved by ever more extra-Congressional regulations, directives and pogroms.
Treason is an executive office that is on the record as saying it will ‘go around’ the Congress to enact its illicit regulations and directives.
This petition is not treasonous. This petition is a message to the government. It is the very essence of a free people...
The Texas petition has surpassed 30,000 signatures, and has been advanced for response.
I don’t know that the administration will respond. But, they put up the site, and they put up the rules that say a petition that achieves 25,000 signatures in 30 days will warrant a response from the Executive staff.
You want to tell me why an independent can’t be a conservative? There are a lot of us out here that do NOT belong to the GOP any longer.
I looked at the NJ one and it had signatures from different states.
Shouldn’t it just have signatures from your state of residence? Seems watered down otherwise .
If your a contractor for the DOD it wouldn’t be advisable signing. Or any government org.
no, not chicken.
Did the Jews band together in the ghettos of old Europe and voluntarily write down their names and addresses in a protest letter to the SS, stating their protests, disagreement and wish to escape?
No, that would have been dumb.
Well, maybe it should only get votes from residents on those states, but it’s not a requirement.
If the petitions would really work, I’d be all in favor of nominating NY and CA for eviction.
Well I support the message. Not exactly sure on
Articles of treason . I can’t sign due to work.
Hoping each document gets well above required signatures.
Why December 12? Can’t just accumulate over several months?
Zero’s website...Zero’s rules, I guess. The site actually pops up a little dialog box when you submit...it says that a thirty day period has started and that is the window to get 25,000 signatures to have the petition reviewed by the White Hut staff.
Missed your post. My apology. (imho) factual. Would add it may not be all which is planned. Lord only knows where this leads. Cannot be good though. Ask anyone alive from WWII.
I’m pretty sure if the government really wanted to make my life a living hell, there’s more than enough out there for them to do so.
All I’m suggesting is that we shouldn’t make it any easier on their part. Gift wrapping your email address and contact information for a Nixonian Enemies List doesn’t seem prudent.
I don’t get the snickering about suggesting that the administration would abuse power to punish political opponents, or that such things even happen.
Nixon did so in a very vindictive manner. Does anybody think Barry isn’t thin-skinned enough to settle some scores?
We live in the information age now, and the government has access to tons of data that was private in the 70s.
Considering how Obama talked about his second term as “revenge”, maybe us conservatives should avoid shooting our mouths off and get on their radar.
I looked at 9:25 and there were 1,300+ signatures.
“the right of the people...to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” - First Amendment
You’re already on FR does which means your on their list.
That is odd i am looking at it right now it says 42 signed
