ehm, yes but look at the headline:

Secession petitions now filed for all 50 states


You can file any petition you want right now, no matter if it is the banning of chewing gum or the mandatory drinking of 2 quarts of single malt whiskey on July 4th. And then you can go out and collect signatures. If you have enough signatures the state legislative must consider it or, in some states, pass a referendum on the issue.

But as long as you don't have the minimum signatures, which have to be collected within 12 months, nothing has happened except that somebody is collecting signatures. And in most of the 50 states it will not even reach the state legislative. The only news here is: There are some really sore looser who rather split up the country than accept the decision by the majority.

Nobody has filed for secession yet, some people have started a signature collection that does not seem to be very popular except in Texas,
700 000 signed so far, so yes it is somewhat popular, again reality proves you wrong.

Assumed majority. Some election issues are just now beginning to surface.

Just as Romney was winning by a landslide, I suppose.

That is less than the tea party has members.

Every election has issues, in fact that has been so since the discovery of the Supreme Court to settle the elections for us, but in no case those issues were big enough to invalidate the elections. They are just big enough to pass some big fees to grateful lawyers.

The PETITIONS are filed by PEOPLE who wish that their VIEWPOINT and STANCE be viewed by the federal government.

None of the STATE GOVERNMENTS ENDORSE these.

People keep seeming to miss that bit.

Paying members or supporting members? Because the few serious studies conducted say that 67,000 members is at least understated by a factor 10.

But don't let little statistics fool you in your believes.

The experience around here is that you can post it under every false statement, won't stop the usual suspects.

those studies have about the same weight as your posts,  which is 0. if they exsist at all

They'll have to deal with counter revolutionaries if they want to secede, I'm from Texas and I'd fight for the north.
