You cannot deport an American citizen. You cannot even strip citizenship as punishment. Just getting those two things out of the way

He'll ignore it, just like he will all the secession ones, of course.

How about a petition suggesting that we all put aside our petty partisan differences, and try to work together as adults to solve the various problems facing our great nation?

so how about this? we slap a parachute on every one of those people, and shove them out of a plane over...hmm...someplace we don't like very much. africa maybe, or Iran. sweden perhaps. Then we air drop one supply cannister full of guns, food and whatnot for every 100 people that we air dropped. if these people manage to fight their way home, then they deserve to stay in this country. if they don't get home, then meh - problem solved.

I think there was a fark thread on this very topic. Turns out a majority of the petitioners signatures were actually non-residents of the state requesting withdrawal.

What if we signed petitions to allow states to withdraw from the US because we think those states are bad for the US overall? I personally do not mind if most of the south seceded (again) so long as the north took in refugees, the same way we take immigrants from other third-world countries. So I signed many of the petitions for that reason (also, for the lulz).

you might actually be right about that. didn't we change the laws on US citizens who participate in terrorist attacks? call 'em 'enemy combatants' and I think we CAN strip them of their citizenship.

Isn't it cheaper to hand over the secessionist petitions to C-SPAN and have them print out the names and addresses of those that signed it repeatedly for a month?
 
2012-11-25 09:49:27 AM
They got some good ones that almost have enough votes.

Save the Post Office! Work to Repeal the 2006 Law that Forces the Post Office to Pre-Fund 75 years of Pension Benefits. Seriously why should the post office have to do this? Just so the Republicans can "prove" that government doesn't work by sabotaging it at every chance.

Legally recognize the tea party as a hate group and remove them from office for treason against the United States. Sounds legit to me.

Demand Congress members sign a pledge to represent the best interests of Americans overriding the Norquist tax Pledge Asking politicians to represent our best interests...? Seems like the greatest political non-starter in history.

Transfer funds from the drug war to fund the research and development of the genetic engineering of domestic cat girls. LOL because the drug war money is wasted anyhow.

Investigate Karl Rove for vote tampering But they probably won't find anything.

Who is talking about stripping them of citizenship as punishment? The people who signed these petitions haven't committed any crime, they've simply exercised their right to petition their government. Stripping them of citizenship would not be punishment.

It would be a matter of recognizing their desire to no longer be American citizens.
Potentially expatriating acts and the loss of American citizenship.

The premise that a person intends to retain U.S. citizenship is not applicable when the individual . . . performs an act made potentially expatriating by statute accompanied by conduct which is so inconsistent with retention of U.S. citizenship that it compels a conclusion that the individual intended to relinquish U.S. citizenship.

I submit that demanding that your state secede from the federal government indicates, at least as clearly as any other action, that you no longer have any desire to remain an American citizen. Such a request is not listed as one of the various potentially expatriating acts, but that's why we have this petition. A better name for this petition would be "Classify a formally demand for secession as an expatriating act and a relinquishment of citizenship," but that doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

Now I thought about signing the petitions for all the Southern states for exactly that reason. LOL. I'd love the idiot red states to leave. Then maybe we can get something done in this nation.

I don't think al-Awlaki ever had his citizenship stripped. Though you could make an argument that getting blown up by a Predator is basically the same as getting your citizenship stripped...

The only change I know for sure was that we said that anybody living in a battle zone is automatically considered an enemy combatant regardless of whether they've actually helped the enemy. Hence how we've had zero civilian casualties from drone strikes in Pakistan.

They seem to be the ones most actively participating in the conversation of strippings one's citizenship, signing other states petition to secede, and calling for petitioers to be tried as terreorists. Sounds like butthurt, or is that more of a soccer hooligan victory party where the wnners get to burn things in celebration?

It doesn't strip them of their citizenship, but it lets you deal with them under military authority rather than having to go through civilian/criminal routes.

Where's the questioning and distrust of people in power and government ?
Instead of this signing up for this blind conformity of opinion.
