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. SOURCE
Sounds good doesn’t it? 15 states have filed petitions asking, ASKING Barack Obama to “Please Sir, let us go free…”
If only it were that simple, and if only the people putting these stories out there had the INTEGRITY to tell you the truth.
1. These petitions are NOT initiated by ANY state, they are started by an individual, not a state official or state representative.
2. These petition are not OFFICIAL petitions in ANY sense of the word; these petitions are hosted by WhiteHouse.gov and you must be a registered member of WhiteHouse.gov to actually sign the petition.
This petition move is a FARCE!
You must give the government YOUR personal information in order to submit your name to a petition that the U.S. government is holding so that some weak-minded folks can do something all touchy-feely that makes them feel warm and fuzzy about their effort to save America.
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.
As of right now, at the time this piece was published, 16,981 Americans have pretty much made fools of themselves and have the Obama administration laughing their asses off at the naivety they have exhibited.
Did you people not watch the news? Did you not get the memo? Obama won the election by a substantial margin, both popular vote and Electoral College.
Barack Obama does not give a DAMN about what WE think, about what we want or what some silly-assed petitions have to say. Do you honestly believe that Obama and company are going to pay any attention to some BULL SHIT petition started by a citizen, one that happens to collect a few signatures?
Well if you DO believe he will then YOU are as delusional as these folks that have signed the petitions on WhiteHouse.gov.
Wake up folks, you don’t petition the U.S. government and ask them to PLEASE stop what they are doing and give your state its release from the United States. That is THE most stupid thing I have ever heard of and it is a total waste of time and energy.
Do you want to have a secession movement, a REAL secession movement that has at least a chance of gaining traction and going someplace? Forget trying to garner signers to a petition on a White House site.
This is a STATES RIGHTS issue, not one that can even be addressed with the Obama administration or ANY level of the United States government.
Get organized on a local and county level, get your state representatives involved and get this on the floor of your STATE HOUSE! That is where the REAL action lies, use your energy in the right direction, not wasting on a silly petition and a CORRUPT U.S. government!
If you don’t know who your state representative is, FIND OUT! This can happen, this secession thing, and it can truly affect the U.S. map if it’s done right!
