Charging Ted Cruz and John Boehner with Treason

To be delivered to Rep. Warren Davidson (OH-8) and Sen. Ted Cruz (TX-2)

Petition Statement

Ted Cruz committed sedition, according to the Sedition Act of 1918, by demanding that our troops' suppoort staff (food, supplies, etc.) not get paid to score political points. John Boehner was complicit in this, both causing potential damage to the troops' morale and therefore possible loss of life in the conflict in Afghanistan.

Petition Background

We must make it nearly impossible to allow lawmakers to put their political party ahead of the good of the country and its citizens. This shutdown stunt had no purpose, as many of its supporters have stated, meaning that this was done out of spite against our government. Since our government is the collective known as its citizens, they have conspired against us.
