Death to America? That'll be $5, please.

Here's a classic out of South Carolina.

Would it apply to a city, and its residents, in South Carolina that mimicked Portland's scheme to selectively fund private political campaigns from compelled taxes? It does, after all, seek to boldly circumvent the first amendment. What if I petitioned to repeal the first amendment? Would I have to pay $5 for each group that I claim membership or is one $5 fee good for multiple groups that I list? What if I seek only to disincorporate a city, and thereby its power to tax?

Yeehaw, South Carolina!

Oh, the irony.

This is just so tempting...

Organizations that must register include those that advocate the necessity of controlling the United States government. That would include the Democratic and Republican Parties, wouldn't it?


Please add $25 to your tally of Portland's long-term debt to cover the current City Council's registration fees.

"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."

Is the US Treasury not an 'organization subject to foreign control'?

Obviously, Toyota, Hyundai, Mercedes, BMW, Audi...all those are organizations subject to foreign control. But how about Halliburton? It is, too.

And then...advising the duty to overthrow the government of the US?

Oh, Saaaaaraaaaah!

Teapartiers...stay away from Charleston harbor. Unless you file, of course.
