Relax, Ye Tory Loyalists, There’s Still time

While it might appears as if the nation is on the verge of crumbling, http://dailycaller.com/2012/11/14/white-house-secede-petitions-reach-660000-signatures-50-state-participation/ (notwithstanding the url, Daily Caller reports 675,000), fear not!

History (most of you will remember history, if at all, as a boring recitation of dates) shows that it took two years of “petitioning” George III (subjects, pleading to their “sovereign”, with historically predictable results), before the united (it was an adjective, then) States of America actually Declared Independence, e.g., seceded.

These “petitions” will go nowhere.  Nor should they.  Liberty, Mr. Henry’s “precious jewel”, is not “permissible”; it cannot be “permitted”.  And these “petitions”, presuming the power to grant, falsely legitimize a presumed power to revoke.

The current Resident, having committed to “respond” to such pleas if and when each gathers 25,000 signatures; who has taken upon himself the mundane duties of unilaterally adjudging the guilt and ordering the execution of those he, in his majesty, finds so deserving, will honor his pledge:  “Ah…no. You may not leave.”

When and if the time comes upon us, we must Take our Liberty, and our leave.
