http://www.examiner.com/article/15-states-including-texas-have-filed-a-petition-to-secede-from-the-united-states-1

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.

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.

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.

Plus, we'd really only miss three of those states.

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:

//marijuana would be decriminalized and taxed the very next day

///the capital of Pacifica would probably be Sacramento. Hereafter referRed to as, 'Sacredpimento'. No, that won't work, we'll build a new capital.

I guess the northern part of Canada (the real chilly part) could use some more people. :yes:

Most Canadians live within a couple hundred miles of the US don't they?

//marijuana is already decriminalized as such it was in most states you mentioned... we're talking about full legalization bro... just what Colorado and Washington did with some regulations of course.

90% within a hundred miles. (What do you expect, we huddle and snuggle along the border for warmth.) I'm not one of those, but I love my american cousins.

The US federal government will quash those initiatives. Washington state just managed to clear up a whole load of court time, and save themselves a whole lot of money.

I live in BC. Medical use only.

Colorado and washington are just the beginning.

Here in BC marijuana is decriminalized... has been for a long time........An individual can be caught carrying up to 28-30 grams and there is no public record unless it can be proven the individual had possession for the purpose of selling.
