Letters To The Post: Nebraskans To Petition Their Government

Posted 1 year ago

By Post Staff

Citizens of the State of Nebraska have joined other states to petition their government for a redress of grievances or a request to peacefully withdraw from the United States as is permitted in the Declaration of Independence. Texas has gained enough signatures to receive an official response from the White house. Are we seeing a modern day breakup of the Union? You decide.

    You all are aware that secessionists are batting .000 in this country’s history, right?

    I miss when you nutjobs used to threaten to move to Canada or Australia – I guess when you all figured out that both countries had SUPER SCARY UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE, you didn’t want anything to do with them, either.

    Here’s a suggestion: Suck it up. You still live in the greatest country in the world. Not even President Bush could screw that up, though Lord knows he tried.

    And if you feel like your country is passing you by – well, it is, and that’s your fault for being stuck in the 1950s. Welcome to the 21st century! We’re not scared of minorities and gays anymore! Women don’t have to spend their adult lives barefoot and pregnant! We use science and not religion to explain things like climate change (which is a real thing that is happening)! You can join the rest of us out here in the real world, or you can keep burying your head in the sand and you can keep on losing. Your call.

    Why must folks hate. Im not paranoid or crazy….. Im not even tea party and I signed it. Why would someone turn this into a gay rights or minority issue.Its not mentioned not even once. This is simply a matter of States rights versus the federal government. A lot of people have had it with the way washington is conducting business and are attempting to at least do something about it. Maybe you like the idea of having your head in the sand regurgitating fox news or mainstream media talking points… I for one believe in this Republic to its core with or without a large central government.There was a time in our history circa 1770s when another group of then colonial Americans were labeled crazies,paraniods, whateve for doing this very thing… challenging an overbearing central government… They drafted perhaps the greatest American legal Document to date also a statement of Secession. The Declaration of Independence. So to say Secession is batting .000 is a complete false. You knock it all you want but the fact remains they have the right to petition the government. They tryed working through the system with the tea party and it became co opted by neo cons. The 2 party system is a failure… two sides to the same coin… Wake up

      Not crazy, not paranoid, not ‘tea party’… and not very bright, apparently.

      We get a chance every two years to ‘do something about’ the ‘way washington is conducting business’. They’re called ‘elections’. If you don’t like the candidates, either run for office yourself or try and work with a political party to find better ones. But that’s how this Republic works. And it’s how it’s always worked.

      Of course these dimwits have the right to petition the government for secession. They have the right to petition the government to bring back the freaking McRib on a permanent basis, too. That’s the kind of ‘freedom’ that everybody’s so afraid they’re ‘losing’. You aren’t losing freedom – you’re just bitter that the kinds of people you don’t like (again, gays, minorities, women…) are catching up in the freedom and rights department.

      Also, anybody who concludes a political screed with the words ‘wake up’ is not to be taken seriously.

        1. No not insult my intelligence,you have never met me nor do you know my education level.

        2. Well you think what you want Hilarious….. real name??? must be to scared to debate this with a real name or your playing devils advocate… not sure which..You are seriously so complacent you cant see that the presidential elections are basically only an illusion. We may have this illusion of an elective form of Government but have lost the representative form. overregulation is a serious issue and we are losing freedoms every day in the name of supposed (security). Get your head outa your bum and realize you have been played dude. Im a free thinker as the founders of this once great Republic so dont even try to label me by political party. Have a good day internet troll.

        sincerely

          Which freedoms have we lost? Serious question. Which freedoms don’t you have anymore that you had four years ago?

          Also, please do not insult ‘the founders of this Republic’ by comparing yourself to them.

            This has been going on over the course of the last 40 years not just this Administration.Im not going to point them out to ya.Do your own research. You can start by researching TSA, and Homeland security and their rediculous poking and prodding into your personal life. US military and Joint chiefs admit our military does not take orders from the Congress but the UN. Unlawfull search and seisure is running rampant with no reguard to the 4th amendment. The 10th Amendment is consistently violated by our federal government.The exact things are happening that the founders warned us of tirelessly and its going to get worse unless We the people put a stop to it now.

            First, Ty, I apologize for insulting your intelligence. That’s not the way to go about this discussion, and I am sincerely sorry for that.

            Now I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you’re one of those Libertarian ‘true believers’. I have trouble taking them seriously because they’re so wedded to that crazy old loon Ron Paul.

            But the vast, overwhelming majority of people who are ALL OF A SUDDEN so aware of all these “lost freedoms”… let’s just say they were a little more accepting of these expansions of power when it was a paler-skinned gentleman expanding those powers and not a Kenyan Muslim European Socialist Marxist or whatever bat-$#!t insane thing you can think to call the current leader of the free world.

    Just to give you dopes an idea of how much these petitions matter: Here’s a petition to get a baseball player released. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/propose-law-demanding-kansas-city-royals-release-jeff-francoeur-and-make-george-rr-martin-write/kbW49HXf

    If you get 25,000 signatures, the Administration is required to respond to you. I wonder how they’re going to send a fart noise and a dismissive wanking motion through the mail to the dolts who started these petitions.

      Registered independent – if I’m lyin’ I’m dyin’. But I happen to believe that the current Republican party is so far off the reservation – having allowed itself to be led around on a leash by the bigoted and ignorant – that they are not worthy of being taken seriously when it comes to substantive discussion about the future of our country.
