Don't Sign a Petition Email
With permission, I post this email circulated in a private company:
All, As some of you may have heard since the Presidential election there are currently 32 states that have a petition to Secede from the United States. There may be some of you who are considering signing the petitions but we FSOs need to remind you that Allegiance to the United States is one of the 13 adjudicative guidelines that DISCO uses to grant you a security clearance and give you access to classified information. For that reason, we strongly suggest you do not sign any of these petitions or align yourself with any group that would place your allegiance to the country in question.
It is the belief of the Defense Security Service that signing the petition is a reportable event. However, we are waiting for a confirmation from local security representatives. In the meantime, please send me or your FSO notice if you have already signed the petition. Failure to report the action could possibly result in an issue with your eligibility when your reinvestigation for renewal becomes due.
Who on earth would sign such a thing? Completely insane. I’ve been happy not to have seen these abominations on FR.
Careful, you may be surrounded!
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
It’s probably true.
So report me. My oath was to the Constitution and the Republic, not the Communist Union that we have become.
I wouldn’t be surprised.
When liberals did this secession dance in 04, they didn’t have to worry that Bush would be vindictive and attempt to punish them. Obama is nothing but vindictive.
Oooooh. I'm sooooo scared!
Honestly, I've never seen so many pansies running around with their tails between their legs in all my life. If we'd had this attitude in 1776, we'd be singing "God Save the Queen" as our national anthem right now.
Real FREEDOM costs something.
Coward. If you won’t sign a simple petition online, how could we ever hope to count on your for anything else?
Should I log off FR?
The petition which our right or what?
When you say insane what are you referring to?
Resistance to Tyrany is obedience to God.
You need to find some courage.
Someone is a coward for not signing something which could never accomplish anything? Get a grip.
There’s close to a million of us that have signed...
Is that “nothing”? Or is that a message that is hard to ignore?
Get a grip yourself...

fwdude~: “It is the belief of the Defense Security Service that signing the petition is a reportable event.”
I believe that Defense Security Service is part of the Dept. of Defense ( DOD) and are federal sworn agents , but not law enforcement officers. They do personal background checks , and look for industrial espionage ,especially with companies doing federal business with the Dept. of Defense (DOD).
Since I am unfamiliar with Defense Security Service , I went to Wiki for some understanding of their role and duties.
However , since the issuance of several Executive Orders in the last few months , I wonder if their role and duties have changed (?).
The Defense Security Service only asks the question as to whether you have ever plotted the VIOLENT overthrow of the U.S. Government.
If you have plotted the non-violent overthrow, i.e., by peaceful political means (kind of like the current administration), that is permitted.
It’s not hard to ignore; Obama is already doing exactly that, and I expect he will keep doing it. At best, you’ll get a dismissive response from the White House telling you what most of the rest of us already know: secession doesn’t work that way.
There are only really two things that the petition accomplishes:
#1 - It paints a target on the back of those who sign.
#2 - It makes Republicans look like crazy, unhinged sore losers.
Or course, what we have now isn't what is outlined in the US Constitution...
If you don’t already have a target on your back, you aren’t paying attention.
As for what we look like, our election was just stolen, our Country is being converted into a Socialist Union, and our economy is teetering on the brink...
And you are worried about the names our political enemies might call us?
