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.

Seems 15 States have seen the writing on the wall and don't like what it says.

Quote from the article: These citizen generated petitions were filed just days after the 2012 Presidential election.


In other words: It ain't no thang.

This is misleading. The States themselves have not filed to secede. Individuals in the respective States have started petitions, getting signatures, etc.  The petitions are in no way official requests. To secede from the US.

Apart from 2 or 3 the rest are South of the Mason Dixon line , Reb Country maybe ?. Get your Grey, and Blue uniforms out of storage. The Reb flag still flies in some states.

Actually I'm in one of those states, and this is news to me.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

The majority don't (as a Texan I've got my fingers on the pulse of that, you could almost say) and Texas doesn't deserve it either, it's part of the Union (as the definition states for union: The action or fact of joining together or being joined together, esp. in a political context). Or “Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all! By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall!”

Good God, do any of those people understand the real ramifications of succession?  I get that they are upset that their guy got his butt kicked, but this is just ridiculous.

People can get up a petition for just about anything. I doubt you would get enough support in any state to secede.  We work well together.

None of the petitions (well none of the ones I saw anyway) were written by or under the authority of the state government.  It is just people with too much time on their hands.  i can make a petition too, but that doesn't mean it will be recognized as a legitimate motion.

I think it has more to do with economic collapse than it does the president. Seceding may actually be a good thing if each state can somehow come up with it's own successful / individual economic system. That is, if the fiscal cliff hammers the states as a whole.

These people should be thankful that our country is as great as it is in regard to most things. Imagine trying this in North Korea? We all know what would happen there.... :td:
