I try to level my â€œconspiracy theoristâ€ mentality with a good dose of rational thinking, so understand that I write this out of true concern.
There is a lot going around about the â€œcitizenâ€™s petitions for secession from the United Statesâ€, two dozen states have citizens doing this right now. First, citizens canâ€™t do this, it requires a proclamation from the State, so sending this to the federal government does no good, petition you state representatives. Second, I believe this is a bigger risk than most of you realize, that is what Iâ€™m here to explain.
I looked into the site last night, it is completely legit as far as to what it claims to be, but that is the problem. It is a site set up by the Obama administration to field â€œcomplaintsâ€ about his administration. A petition isnâ€™t even viewable by the public until it has 1000 signatures, after that you have the remainder of 30 days from the original creation to get 25,000 signatures or it is scrubbed from the system automatically. At 25,000 signatures, it red flags a government worker to look into it. So far it sounds innocent enough. Now for the bad part. In a case like this, signing would make you, in the eyes of the administration, and enemy of the state. In order to â€œsignâ€ the petition you must register with the (government) site, required information being your name, e-mail, and address. Now you have just posted, on a federal website, your complete identity and location and that you are an enemy to the state. You have just but yourself on the federal watch list!
When the â€œfit hits the shanâ€ whoâ€™s houses do you think will be the first hit, and whoâ€™s guns do you think will be the first seized? If you have signed this petition for you state already, I would suggest you keep one good rifle close and hide the rest somewhere safe and away from your property. If you havenâ€™t signed one, PLEASE, PLEASE DONâ€™T!
The proper course is to write or petition your state representatives, the Governor and Lieutenant Governor.
One last thought, WHERE IS UNCLE TED?!
