Thank you for your request to sign your petition.

First off, what is a petition?


petition (n.)   early 14c., “a supplication or prayer, especially to a deity,” from Old French peticion “request, petition”

So, tell me why would anyone want to put a public servant up on a pedestal and then pray to them as a god?

What ever happened to a good old fashioned “My Will” letter?

(Refer to Arthur Chresby’s booklet “Your Will be done”)  https://larryhannigan.com/general/your-will-be-done/

If you petition a government acting outside the law you validate it and that fact cannot be escaped.

In line with these Maxims of Law principles;

Judici officium suum excedenti non paretur   (Latin) – One does not submit to a judge exceeding the judge’s authority.

(one may substitute the word ‘judge‘ with the word ‘government’)

Qui non improbat approbat      (Latin) – not blaming is the equivalent of praising.

Qui tacet consentire videtur    (Latin) – one who is silent is regarded as consenting.

Qui non prohibit quod prohibere potest assentire videtur                    (Latin)- one who fails to prevent what what may have been prevented is regarded as assenting.
The proper manner ought to be by a “My Will Letter” against such policy with a caveat claiming our rights via allegiance constitutionally enshrined as our property rights.
