- 1364 days ago -
The House GOP leadership's use of the Hastert Rule and H. Res 368 to shut down Govt. threaten the U.S. economy with default is an attempt to extort US Govt. into altering or abolishing the Affordable Care Act. Thus a seditious conspiracy.

Barbara K had asked me to place a petition on for her, somehow I got the wrong one on. Sorry Barbara.

This IS the petition Barbara K wanted on.

The other I placed on was Do Your Job Congress which was a good petition but not what she requested. If you hadn't signed Do Your Job Congress I'll leave it below.

think I'd signed before, but it took; what I signed before didn't have a survey so I took it. I'm thinking someone else also has a petition out there on this subject; thanks for posting Dandelion

Thank you, my friend, for putting up this important petition. There was an item on a Raw Story article a couple of weeks ago by an attorney. He outlined how this can be done and that it should be done. I replied that I hope someone would put it in a picture. A few days ago, I got the petition from someone else and signed it then and passed it on. Please do sign and pass share. Just letting them know that we have the legal right to do this should spark some action out of them. I would like to see someone actually file the charges, so let's get it signed. lol.

A bit extreme, and probably won't do any good - but maybe it will send a signal that these nincompoops need to stop their party politics games and do their jobs. Just when the USA is facing multiple crises, we have the worst government ever.

After this:

McConnellís plan to shut down Obama

Mitch McConnell is not included?

I don't believe this action to be a good idea. Better to just make people aware of what Republicans in the House and Senate are up to. Write a letter to your local newspaper. Besides, Cantor is gone.

I do agree though if this isn't sedition, it's at least extortion, with absolutely no regard for the well-being of the country. It's ugly and despicable.

Thank you so much Dandelion for such a petition. They are guilty of treason and sedition and on numerous occasions I have written comments on other petitions and tweets to Boner and others that they should be arrested, and tried for these crimes. Well done! And thank you for creating such a petition.

Sorry Michael I can't take credit for making the petition but I'm glad it was something you could get behind and sign your name to. Also thank Barbara K above as she was the one to find it and asked that I post it for her. So I guess you can say, I'm only the messenger. But thanks anyways.

It's about time. The Patriot Act has probably 10 or 15 articles under which ALL of the GOP in congress could be charged. Actually the entire GOP in congress could literally be charged not only with Sedition but with Anarchy as the exact definition of Anarchy is: noun
a state of disorder due to absence or nonrecognition of authority.
"he must ensure public order in a country threatened with anarchy"
synonyms: lawlessness, nihilism, mobocracy, revolution, insurrection, disorder, chaos, mayhem, tumult, turmoil
or, exactly what the GOP has been saying they are for.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe the GOP-engineered government shutdown cost taxpayers some $41 billion dollars. Yet, amazingly, Republicans still try to maintain the myth that they are fiscally responsible.

Thanks Tasunka, my Granddaughter is back in school, got a few more minutes for here....don't know on that, it is something new I guess.

Be sure to share to all your Dem friends, etc. so we can get to the 75,000. Thank you again, Dandelion, for posting this important petition.
