I'd say the "Patriot Act" and all other acts which have encroached on our freedoms since the World Trade Center was attacked should be on the table. I think we have bought enough assault weapons lately that we can take care of terrorists ourselves, so the rest of that isn't necessary.
I’m willing to give up the Patriot Acts, to start with, and the executive branch can give up their guns as a good faith submission to We the People.
In fact, just in case there is the slightest chance you haven’t heard about it, to encourage their participation in such a deal, someone has put it on the white house petition site that the concept of gun free zones be introduced to the president and vice-president.
Since they are big believers in said zones, they would certainly consider being gifted with their very own from We the Constitutionally specified holders of the real power, a high honor.
Despite the few naysayers around here, the signings are increasing in tempo.
Some might say that kind of pressure will make an anti-Constitutional politician nervous. But, ya know, sometimes I think there’s no such thing as an anti-Constitutional politician. Just those who have been on the job too long.
So, if you haven’t signed, yet, here’s where to go. But, hurry! After January 22, this petition is closed.
Don’t forget to tell your friends all about it.
