Sedition?!?

If we bring back charging people with sedition, we're going to wind up jailing or hanging half of Congress and all of the Teabaggers.

Hmm...

We should bring it back.

darkedgefan: Treason is tough to prove??? Are you kidding me? I would kill to be on the jury that heard his case. F the 'proceedings and evidence' he is a traitor to America. Plain and simple.

Then I would sentence him to be ass raped hourly. By that demon in This is the end. That would be justice.


Why do you hate the Constitution of the United States so much?

The only people committing treason is the NSA, who is wiretapping the entire American public without ever obtaining a court warrant.

Snowden aided the citizens of the United States by informing us of the programs gathering our information. For the government to declare him a traitor, they would have to admit that they consider the citizens to be an enemy.

Don't forget anyone who carried a "Bush = Hitler" sign, or had such a bumper sticker on their vehicle.  Most of the Occupy Wall Street crowd.

Pretty much all you'd be left with is bland soccer moms who don't give a crap about politics, and politically neutered males.

/Good luck with that.
