What began as a small group of citizens voicing their disappointment with President Obama's victory in last week's presidential election has turned into a plea from hundreds of thousands of citizens to have their states be granted independence from the federal government.

The White House has now received secession petitions from all 50 states by citizens requesting that the administration “peacefully grant” them the opportunity to form their own sovereign government.

    Let's see...

    101,109/314,772,606 = .00032

    Damn... that's a full 0.03 % of the population.

    I am sure we will see 50 new countries here just as soon as the President gets a chance to approve all those petitions.

    I love my country. I respect the president. I HATE Obama. I did not elect him in 2008 and I did not elect him now. He is the worst president EVER. If you quit being pathetic LIBERALS and open your eyes to the truth. NOT INFORMATION FROM THE LIBERAL PRESS.

    We are living in a time of: Gov for the Gov By the Gov of the Gov. Just the opposite from what our fore fathers set out to achieve. I see nothing foolish about the NEED to reform our Gov. First and foremost we live with technology that Dictates we have the ability to be more of a democracy than ever before. But our Gov will never allow the people the power to make there own decisions on Economics, Defense and Laws. We need true Governmental reform and secession is the first step in doing so peacefully without bloodshed. STOP THE OPPRESSION!! its really no better than 200 YEARS AGO WHEN WE FOUGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM. We are still living taxation without representation and everyday another LIBERTY is threatened.

    No and it's hard for me to believe that any American would. I love this country and am
    very grateful for our current leader, Barack Obama's recent election to his second term.
    We should all pay close attention to his leadership for he is surely making history.

    I personally think it is foolish, and thus out of context or a over bearing response, I agree Mr. Obama Shouldn't left to be holding office , 2 points should keep him from holding office and to hold any other office again Done right, Yet Congress has yet to enforce the Constitutions set by the framers 14th Amendment Section 3 , Article 1 SECTION 5 AND NOT LIMITED TO ITS VIEWS ,

    Point 1 , The Health care Bill or Act as a New federal tax on things bought and or sold , the Origins of the this matter such base Votes did not take place , Thus deprived the Voters of the Voice do them for such a matter to become. law , Thus is basic Views of Constructive treason , Thus For the Federal Systems to Force the States it can 't or is not Law enforce able, Partly based on the Voluntary Tax Code History, No War On US Soil No Force able federal tax ?? , If they did be that the states then the State and the people of the state could then counter suit the State Reps , Thus the Court then would have to side with the states ??

    Point 2. I so question is his eligibility to sustain office acording to the Constitution of the constitutions of the framers set for views of what constitutes views of terms like Constructive treason in relation to the abuse of the office of the figurehead in such office as a Elected in executive branch functions as the representative republic we are as a Command actor of the Leagues of Common defense in relation to the War powers! Article 1 Section 10, thus I so point out the Libyan war Mr. Obama committed a crime that violated the War powers powers , thus the perceived value of the Crime in question would be along the lines an act of war with out the Voted Consent of Congress in my understanding would not limited to Constructive treason for Direct Violations of the voice the vote of the people to sustain the Federal taxs and thus U.S. Active Militia the Military! To out line my view about more, the Acts of War, was of no real time threat to U.S. Soil to give Mr. Obama such rights


    I would view this as war crimes, as One that has Acted as a dictatorship, v/s the representative republic we are to be! Now would be the time for the new Congress starting in the house to call for impeachment thus removing Mr. Obama from office, thus preventing Mr. Obama from holding any other office...

    For people on Federal or State programs from my research I found unless your Doctor says yes its medically related they will not just remove it because it not been made IIlegal, such then will then only pay for the teeth they deam as a problem again not because of the fillings , Yes such they will remove or help pay only unless its be said to be a problem like rotten teeth under not for the fact it even if 1 has Bone lose related , Yet because it not band the doctors will not remove it because it not Band

    Just as an example: Quebec had two referendums to decide whether they would remain part of Canada or separate. Both times they decided to remain a part of Canada.

    I more than certain that if it came to referendum in the United States in whatever state of your choosing the people would choose to stay as one.

    that second one was a squeaker though. But very fair point. There's not a state in the union that would have the supermajority that would be required, let alone a simple majority. Also, the last time a state tried to secede, the civil war started.
