White House website deluged with secession petitions from 20 states

How would Old Glory look with 30 stars instead of 50? As far-fetched as it may sound, the White House might soon be forced by its own rules to examine the question.

On Nov.7, the day after President Barack Obama was re-elected, the White House’s website received a petition asking the administration to allow Louisiana to secede.

If 25,000 people sign the petition by Dec. 7, it will “require a response” from the Obama administration, according to published rules of the White House’s online “We the People” program.

What began as a pair of parallel stunts appears to have gathered steam. Other than Louisiana and Texas, states with secession-related petitions pending on the White House website now include Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Three states – Georgia, Missouri and South Carolina are each represented by two competing petitions.

    When the heck is Utah gonna join that list?! That will mean we won't have to swallow 'ObamaCare' and all his other crap. Seceding from the rest of this crazy country seems to be the only solution we have right now, to avoid the ever widening sink hole the USA is falling into.

    " ... according to published rules by the white house".

    There is little to no respect with a great many laws, rules, or regs by this administration.

    Wonder why Idaho isn't on that list? I'm sure in time we will be. At last report, Mitt Romney took approximately 80% of all counties in every state, yet, missed the high population centers. So, how is it Barack Hussein Obama represents us all? He doesn't. He represents ONLY his far left constituency?

    I think it would be WISE on his part to FINALLY heed the people, but he won't do so. The states are fed up with supporting these lib agendas and being ignored all the time; so since the ballot box is obviously broken beyond repair and the divide in ideologies is too great and also beyond repair, secession and division of the nation peaceably would be the WISE solution.. However, Obama is all about power, and wisdom is NOT in his repertoire, so likely the bullet box will be the box of last resort.

    The Civil War was NOT fought over slavery; it was fought to bring the Confederacy back into the Union. The Confederacy seceeded because of repeated Federal Government imposition on State's rights.

    I don't want to rain on anybody's parade here, but a few hundred people in these states cannot decide that their state is going to secede. That decision would have to be made by the entire state. Last I heard, secession votes had not happened in ANY states, so these petitions are meaningless gestures of the disgruntled.

    Same as in the beginning of our nation; it begins with a Declaration. The States do NOT neccessarily have to seceed from each other in order to seceed from the bloated, overpowering Federal Government trampling on State's Rights.

    This is not the STATES requesting, but some individuals in those states. The individuals should be petitioning their own state to secede, rather than the white house.

    You have to BEGIN before you can proceed; you don't seceed and then submit a declaration. People are NOT going to give up what they have worked for all their lives to some socialist, black social engineering. Half of Americans can not support the other half; in something like 2020 ALL of the government's tax revenues will go to entitlements; nothing left for defense, education, energy; it all goes to those with the hand out; it won't work.

    Re-electing a POTUS with 8% unemployment, massive deficits every year, and a marxist was meaningless; was 4 years not bad enough? In 8 years there will be no USA; he is a divider not a uniter.

    So, if I want to make my house a sovereign nation, all I need to do is send a petition to the White House saying I'm going to secede, regardless of how my neighbors, the rest of the county, or the rest of the state feel?

    Then you get my point, but are ignoring it. If the majority of the people in any state wish to secede, the movement must begin IN the state, and not just with a couple hundred dissatisfied folks who send a petition to the White House.

    What admit?? all I said was the BEGINNING was done. I didn't say States had already seceeded; they BEGAN the process. I doubt if it will happen but somethinghas to be done to avoid what all of the socialist EURO is going through. We are out of money, they are out of money; socialism has failed EVERY time it was tried; eventually socialism runs out of other people's money. We are there, dude and overdrawn some $16T to boot; $1.5T addidtional every year; how long will that last?

    The State would not seceed from itself; why petition yourself? The Declaration of Independance went to King James, not G. Washington.
  • Pele Em... Tuna 2012/11/17 03:19:01
    Pele Emerging
    The Declaration of Independence went to King George, not King James. It was signed by representatives of each of the colonies. The people sending the petitions are not representatives of their states, but of themselves. They have neither the authority not the backing of their respective states.

    By the way, I never said that they needed to SUBMIT the petition to their state. I said that they needed to take it up IN their state before submitting to the government. It has little meaning other than as a gesture.

    Oh, really? If you're referring to the GBLT crowd, last stat I saw said about 10%. I looked it up on line and the stats vary widely from a low of 4 or 5 to a high of 25%. One put it at 8% of men and 7% of women (that's 15%). For the sake of argument, I'm going leave it at the10% mark.

    So, you think the will of the people in your state means nothing? Maybe, as AZ is a border state, how about declaring that AZ is going to secede and become part of Mexico? After all, from what you're telling me, only 5% of the population would have to agree to that. I'll bet there are a lot more people in your state who would like that.

    You're arguing for the sake of argument here. I never said once that the STATES didn't have the right to petition, but no where does it say that a couple hundred people who are unhappy have the right to decide what the entire state does. Of course, doing this would probably lead to another civil war.
