15 States including Texas have filed a petition to secede from the United States


As of Saturday November 10, 2012, 15 States have petitioned the Obama Administration for withdrawal from the United States of America in order to create its own government.

States following this action include: Louisiana, Texas, Montana, North Dakota, Indiana, Mississippi, Kentucky, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, Colorado, Oregon and New York. These States have requested that the Obama Administration grant a peaceful withdrawal from the United States.

These citizen generated petitions were filed just days after the 2012 Presidential election.

Louisiana was the first State to file a petition a day after the election by a Michael E. from Slidell, Louisiana. Texas was the next State to follow by a Micah H. from Arlington, Texas.

The government allows one month from the day the petition is submitted to obtain 25,000 signatures in order for the Obama administration to consider the request.

The Texas petition reads as follows:

The US continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the federal government’s neglect to reform domestic and foreign spending. The citizens of the US suffer from blatant abuses of their rights such as the NDAA, the TSA, etc. Given that the state of Texas maintains a balanced budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world, it is practically feasible for Texas to withdraw from the union, and to do so would protect it’s citizens’ standard of living and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers which are no longer being reflected by the federal government.

As of 12:46 am, Sunday, signatures obtained by Louisiana, 7,358; Texas, 3,771; Florida, 636; Georgia, 475; Alabama, 834; North Carolina, 792; Kentucky, 467; Mississippi, 475; Indiana, 449; North Dakota, 162; Montana, 440; Colorado, 324; Oregon, 328; New Jersey, 301 and New York, 169. Many more States are expected to follow.

I love living in Texas, I just hate all the ignorant, inbred, rednecked hicks that live here, and vote Republican when that party is clearly out to keep those stupid pieces of s**t in the gutter.

Okay then.
We make a deal.
You send all the rednecks to the southern half of Texas and bring all the schmott people to the northern half and the southern half can recede.
I just have to be clear that my friend 'Elle needs to be amongst the people who remain.

Better compromise, we send the rednecks to Mexico, and let them see if their s**t flies down there. Then, the rest of us stay in the US

God damn, someone needs to tell all of the disgruntled voters to stop whining about Obama's second term. At least he actually won it instead of going to the Supreme Court.

But then the Mexicans would try to send them back.

Can people really be this stupid?
Those petitions are from individual citizens, not the state governments. And it sounds like a publicity stunt anyway: The petitions are all identical copypasted forms and half the signers that bothered to identify their states aren't from the states in question. Which would make even a petition with a qualifying number of signatures invalid.

I am ashamed to live in one of those states. neutral
99% of the signatures by upper-class conservatives, no doubt.
