Along the way it has been fun and interesting to see the kinds of creative things that people do to undermine or peacefully work against the various systems of oppression that we are forced to live under.
This week one such plot made the news, in a situation where 15 people in different areas of the country each filed petitions to secede from the United States government.
One of these petitions has actually reached the threshold needed to be considered for a response from the white house.
Not long after the story hit the news the petition in Texas gained a ton of support and quickly reached the 34,000 signatures that was needed to break the threshold.
According to ABC News:
"The petition appeared on a section of the White House website called "We the People" that invites users with a U.S. zip code to submit or sign petitions about policy changes they would like to see.The mainstream media sources that are covering this are either laughing it off or doing anything they can to slander the idea.
A petition must reach 25,000 signatures within 30 days for the administration to comment on it.
The petition to "Peacefully grant the State of Texas to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government," was submitted on Friday of last week.
Just three days later, it zoomed past the 25,000 mark at 3:22 p.m. today and kept going."
It will be interesting to see the kind of response that this gets from the White House, if any.
There have been quite a few issues that are important to many people that have reached the threshold for petitions but have still been denied or ignored.
Usually issues of a sensitive native involving war, torture, police state or economics are totally ignored, including petitions demanding the release of political prisoners.
The fact that this many people are getting involved with efforts to create something new, shows that the public is beginning to understand that the status quo is immoral, dangerous and unsustainable and that at least, is a good sign.
