I have no words to describe this piece of utter legislative stupidity, but honestly, do I need any? How about I steal a few from the story, and then just let you chew on that for a while.
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.”
There’s even a $5 filing fee.
Yeah…and those people with subversive intentions will get right on that.
