    These petitions are a waste of time.

    Did you read the response the white house gave the states that were petitioning to leave the union? The white house pretty much said tough luck states and your only options are to send letters to your representatives and vote.

    Here is the response...https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/response/our-states-remain-united

    "Our founding fathers established the Constitution of the United States "in order to form a more perfect union" through the hard and frustrating but necessary work of self-government. They enshrined in that document the right to change our national government through the power of the ballot -- a right that generations of Americans have fought to secure for all. But they did not provide a right to walk away from it."


    I disagree with their response.

    The Declaration Of Independence

    "When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."


    The White House version

    "But they did not provide a right to walk away from it"

    Something to make ya say Hmmmm?

    How many times has Our government helped other citizens overthrow their own governments recently? To set up a democracy. Maybe our government should have told those citizens that sorry, your are stuck and just look at what lengths your own government is making to appease you guys over there? They have only the best intentions for you citizens. Cant you all just get along?

    I don't want to see anyone killed. I would never advocate a gun free zone for anyone.

    You know what I meant.....it had been a long day. After the misspelled word was corrected do you understand the sentence, or does the structure of the sentence or lack there of bother you too?
