Arizona Daily Star ^

Posted on 11/14/2012 3:32:32 PM PST by SandRat

------------- Petitions have been filed for Arizona, Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.

A petition to let Arizona secede went up on the White House website Saturday, and by Tuesday it already had received more than half of the 25,000 signatures needed to trigger an official response. It has until Dec. 10 to reach its goal.

This is all so laughable....

I checked out the petitions and it’s really funny seeing someone from New York petition to have Michigan released. It’s all very good reading and fun but it will actually get... nowhere. Nothing will happen.

Can people not recognize the obvious trap in this?

Lightworker Barack Hussein Obama has never had an original thought in his life. Everything he and his lackeys have ever uttered is some retread, shopworn shibboleth of the left from either the 1930s, 1950s, 1960s or 1970s.

This one is from Mao in the 1950s.

“Let one hundred flowers blossom. Let one hundred school of thought contend.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hundred_Flowers_Campaign

Signing these ‘petitions’ is one step removed from ‘suicide by cop’ in the police state that has emerged in the past decade.

That website will bring us heartache later. I hope it is flooded for petitions for everything under the sun. Free ice cream every Sunday, why not.

Axlerod will have his little social media school using that site to push Obama’s agenda. I think the site needs to be discredited. This helps.

The Texas petition leads all others by a wide margin. Shortly before 9:00 a.m. EST Wednesday, it had attracted 94,700 signatures.

Why are these petitions addressed to the White House in the first place? It’s not as if Obama can just up and grant them.

They’ve already got many of us— those of us who express opinions and shop on the net, use Facebook, YouTube, Twitter.

Heck, they’ve said those social network folk may go work in the administration. Skype is handing out information without a warrant.

They will just go collect Levin, Rush, Hannity, Beck subscriber information. They will check books we’ve purchased at Amazon...on and on.

If it is so far gone, putting your name on that list won’t make a darn bit of difference.

It is especially sad that we are so frightened of our government. That in and of itself says there is a HUGE problem.

“Nothing will happen without armed rebellion. JMHO”

Or sovereign bankruptcy, whichever comes first.

As Trotsky pointed out: “A successful revolution is impossible until conditions make one inevitable.”

That’s understandable. I’m also in a State that’s way too far to the left, but who would we more practically secede from? Our nearest socialist neighbors in our own states, of course: the political regulator class folks. They are getting the sow’s share of the monstrous pile of debt. They’re the kind who will be out rioting, when spending cuts are implemented here: government-supported teachers, pensioners, social engineering program employees, regulatory appointees/employees, others, all (much like what we see in Europe).

Wait... You missed that part of the fine print when you signed the contract with JR? Ooops...

I like the idea of flooding the site with petitions for all manner of things, serious or not.

Bring the federal government to its knees under an onslaught of petitions. The 21st century equivalent of a civil rights march.

Aye, and if we don’t show the site for the farce it is, it will be problem for us later. Axerod and Obama have a plan for it and we need to foil their plan.

Agree.

So far, the leftwing has not tried to remove our Constitutional right to petition (at least not that I’m aware of). Do you suppose that’s next?
