15 states start petitions to secede from the U.S.

Don’t think this will go anywhere but as of yesterday 15 States, including Texas, have filed petitions with the White House to secede from the Union. They 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.

Several high level republican leaders in Texas have been talking secession in the past year with Morrison (an imbecile, IMO) coming out and calling for it since the election. I believe that Texas is the only State that can secede by a simple majority yea vote of its State Legislature — when Texas was included into the U.S. that was included in the agreement as a right retained to the state (it also has the right to divide itself into as many as 5 distinct and independent States). The secessionist movement in Texas has always been pretty small with, ironically, the strongest movement being liberals in Austin who want to form their own state instead of being just a liberal bastion in a sea of conservatives. Seems like the whole hog movement might be getting a bit of a push with the election however.

    Not real “petitions.” A “white power” group is doing this on the white house website. None of these are official petitions.

      Doesn’t appear to be a coordinated ‘white power’ effort though the stormfront group is hailing the “southern states” petition movement on their website as a great thing. The folks who started petitions in NJ and NY did so because they are pissed off at the govt’s response to Sandy relief efforts. The others just seem to be disgruntled folks doing copy-cat petitions for their states.

    WOW!
    Are the Americans facing a 2nd Civil War, then?

    The United States is truly a divided country, but the divisions are more complex than simply Democrat/Republican. I was reading the comments on CBS and Breitbart yesterday, and I was astonished/appalled at the harshness of the comments, the variety of opinions, and frankly, the absolute ignorance of the comments from many who were Dems or Repubs. It is appalling. The age of information, and most people haven’t a clue.

    Yes it is true about Texas. If they decide to withdraw from the US i will move there. Let the slaves live under obama and the dhimmicrats.

    Oh, I’m amused. Seems I’m a, let’s see what did they call me? Oh right a “honk-nosed bastard” and well, of course, I’m a “Jewish master” bwaaahaaahaaa. Pulease.

    Yes. Hello all you folks who haven’t yet managed to find your mental way out of the primordial ooze but did manage to find your way here from your neo-Nazi slumfest of a site (yeah, shouldn’t have named them above if I didn’t want the brainless nitwits using google and thus linking and swarming over here — but you know, now that they have, it is kinda fun to see just how brainless they are. Honestly, it is enough to make someone pro-choice).

    I started a thread at a forum of mine with links to ALL of the petitions!

    I am an american living in Hagerstown Maryland. Throughout all of American history, my nation has been a safe haven for those who seek the 4 freedoms-freedom of speech,freedom of relegion,freedom from fear, and freedom from want. With the 4 years Obama has been in office, I have seen all of these freedoms being threatend. In the reseant election he won Only because of the electerol (did i spell that right?) votes. Romney won the popular vote by over 1 million votes. And that was after the black panthers threw boxes and boxes of repubican votes into the Hudson river in NYC. Any one who voted for Mitt Romney was hunted down. The wons that got caught were murdered. Nobody stoped them because they did’nt have guns. Now you know why polititions LOVE gun laws. I might be sent to a concentration camp in a few years for saying this.

    • Lynne says :

      Jessica, having Obama for four more years is not welcome news, but I doubt that our basic freedoms are at risk. We have a system of checks and balances. I agree that there seem to have been voting irregularities, worrisome ones, and I don’t understand how that could happen or how anyone in the community would let that occur. I just voted here in Austin, Texas, and everything worked perfectly. No Black Panthers, no intimidation, no visible tossing of ballots. I showed my driver’s license, I asked for help using the voting machine, and then I was left on my own to vote. Everything was fine. I do know that there have already been efforts of attempts at voter fraud reported, on videotape on CBS, and other reports of problems in Ohio, Chicago, and other places. Why weren’t the UN observers assigned to those places instead of here in Texas, where we have never had an issue?
      Surely no one was murdered though in this election! And throwing boxes of ballots for Romney into the river? I believe that these are simply wild rumors. Was there voter fraud? Possibly, quite possibly, but it would have been by more subtle means than this.
      Honestly, with the mainstream media’s obvious and relentless support of Obama, their bashing of Romney, and their hiding detrimental facts about Obama, there was no need for voter fraud.

        Lynn if you doubt your basic freedoms are at risk, take a minute to read a few of the executive orders passed by the POTUS in these last 4 years.. it may finally frighten you into the realization that a powerful force of evil is on the march here, with your president leading the way.
