I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.
Politicians should serve two terms, one in office and one in prison.(borrowed from RioKid)
Signature #2 is in (mine) keep em coming people let's make this happen. We need 5,000 by October 22nd.
It's still only 2.
The entire "We the People" scheme has been perpetrated by Obama and his Democratic WH on the masses to say, "See? There's only two of you. You can't even get 5 signatures, much less 5,000. You're all alone. No one else agrees with you. We'll not be acting on this as you obviously don't have anywhere near the following to be anything more than a flash in the pan."
So, don't buy into it. DO NOT PLAY THEIR GAME. Even if a few of you do, they can always point to lower numbers than expected. If NO ONE bits, they'll not be able to draw conclusions at all, and the system will go bye-bye.
Let me put this in more succinct terms: It's a ploy. It's a scheme. It's a sucker-punch. It's media manipulation at its worst. It's a lost cause, a lost hope, a bear trap.
Am I making myself clear, here?
This is one carrot you DON'T want to bite, as it will only lead to destruction.
That aside, one of their principle goals is to make you think this is the only way you can convey your thoughts as citizen of the United States to those who can make a difference.
Just write your Congressman. Don't let Obama be the spokesperson for your vote!
Apparently they perform maintenance at noon on Fridays. I'll try to sign it again later.
Well I got the page to load. Some of the first words on the petition are "national standard" and I flat out don't support the feds in coming up with a national standard.
Im in support of this and have written congressmen, but I still feel like creating a whitehouse.gov account and then supporting it through that seems a little like, "oh these people have guns and must be crazy". Im not paranoid, but I dont trust the WH or Obama when it comes to my firearm freedoms!
PS I will still keep an eye on it though!
A chief component of doing my very best is working smarter, not harder. I refuse to be duped into using Obama's secret wish machine when his intent is to turn around and say, "See? Only two people believe this is necessary, so it's obviously not important." I won't hand him any ammunition on a silver platter. Time is a limited resource, and playing into the hands of the enemy is not smart at all. Read Sun Tzu. I know Obama has.
But if you feel like falling for Obama's scheme hook, line, and sinker, be my quest. It's still a free country.
I find it interesting that people keep referring to this as National Right to Carry. It seems Permission to Carry would be a more appropriate title.
I'll support the feds in working towards restoring our rights, but I feel a national standard works against that and is too easy to manipulate should an anti-rights party gain enough control. Forcing the recognition of others permits I simply see as forcing the recognition of the full faith and credit clause; something the states were smart enough to recognize with divers licences.
Not on YOUR life... Sorry. I agree with those that say the FEDERAL government need not be involved with this. JUST like the Federal Government is NOT involved with State Driver's Licenses.
I agree that the STATES should come together and reciprocate with all CC licenses, but that's where it ends. The Feds need to leave it alone.
