Would You Sign This Petition?
Funny, or scary? Your choice. Kind of a fun video here of a guy talking people in San Diego into signing a petition in support of the "Orwellian Police State". To be fair to the signers, you don't hear what he says to get them started and all people seem to be signing the petition by the time you see him mention the police state, Nazi Germany and the rest.
It's probably not all that far fetched since most people don't pay much attention to politics. I suspect many of those who do might knowingly sign the same petition if explained a different way.
