Five-dollar registration fee for persons planning to overthrow US government if you live in South Carolina, gotta pen?
Terrorists who want to overthrow the United States government must now register with South Carolina’s Secretary of State and declare their intentions — or face a $25,000 fine and up to 10 years in prison.
The state’s “Subversive Activities Registration Act,” passed last year and now officially on the books, states that “every member of a subversive organization, or an organization subject to foreign control, every foreign agent and every person who advocates, teaches, advises or practices the duty, necessity or propriety of controlling, conducting, seizing or overthrowing the government of the United States … shall register with the Secretary of State.”
This would include but is not limited to “every cooperation, society, camp,group,bund, political party, assembly,body or organization composed of two or more persons…whose intent is the seizing or overthrowing the government of the United States (or) of this State.”
The five dollars is a real bargain and I can see a steady stream of renewal fees although when being a subversive becomes trendy and the “in” thing, the registration price will probably go up, you betcha’. South Carolina has been providing us with all sorts of fun. Who can forget the Appalachian-Trail-Argentina hike by Mark Sanford…woo-weee
Wow this opens the door to the tea baggers who really do want to take over.
Say doesn’t the South Carolina State Flag look a little like it may be from the middle-east? Just asking.
