With only short-term memory, you can recall that Eric warned us about the danger of old laws (such as CBT or FBAR) lying on the books: “Reed Amendment, Logan Act: why worry about unenforced & unenforceable laws? ”
Do you remember laughing at Ronald Reagan, when he said: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction” I do.
And I remember having some thoughts of dismissing Eric’s article, too. (although those only lasted about 0.25 seconds)
Well, all it takes is a little sheeple-driven bipartisan politics to make it happen, and now it is happening.
It’s objective is for one side of the political spectrum to go after the other side of the political spectrum.
However, the Logan Act is not directed at political leaders, it is directed at guys like Logan himself, who is pretty much like you or me or any of the organizers of the citizens abroad groups.
There is no better way to spread propaganda, than to have propaganda spread itself. A petition such as this can come at any time and enforcement of the Logan act could begin at sunrise of any day.
Just look at your own facebook page and see how many times you have seen this petition. I’ve seen it twice so far. It has 42,078 signatures so far.
A mirror petition is now up on Whitehouse.gov
All it takes is a little hate (of one party or the other) to have laws like the Logan Act enacted.
