Over 20 states file petition for separation from US

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012 12:47:07 by

In what appeared to be an unexpected development, American citizens from at least 20 US states have filed petitions to secede following re-election of Barack Obama.


Several petitions following the re-election surfaced requesting the Obama administration to peacefully grant the applied states to withdraw from the United States of America in order to create their own governments.


Louisiana was the first state to file a petition followed by Texas. States with secession-related petitions on the White House website also include Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina and Tennessee.


Citizens from the 20 states have filed to secede from the United States while the results from the 2012 presidential election are less than one week old.


While many in Texas have been outspoken about seceding from the union for years, in the aftermath of the recent election the first push for secession began in Louisiana and has quickly spread to states including New Jersey and Michigan.


The US government allows one month from the date the petition is submitted to WhiteHouse.gov to obtain 25,000 signatures in order for the Obama administration to consider the request.


The likelihood of the current administration to even entertain the idea of allowing states to secede is almost non-existent. There is a strong chance that if the mainstream media picks up on this “everyman” movement, they will likely ridicule it as the actions of a bunch of radicals.


What strikes a chord though is that there is a strong segment of the American population that feels that their voices are not being heard and for far too long special interest groups have dictated the direction the country is headed.


The author of the Louisiana petition, “Michael E” submitted his request utilizing excerpts from the Declaration of Independence.


In Texas, “Micah H” states in his petition, “The US continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the federal government’s neglect to reform domestic and foreign spending.”  He went on to add that Texas “maintains a balanced budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world,” making it “practically feasible for Texas to withdraw from the Union.”

    As US called itself the champions of HR so now must consider the voice of own people and let them make their own government, this is their right,

    I am happy that they want to leave the United States, now we can finally eradicate prejudice and racism and the United States of America can truly be the land of the free and the brave.

  5. The racism of yesteryear has come full circle in our county. The entire world embraced our choice of a black President four years ago and most nations of the world still support him. The fringe elements of Republican sect have crept through into the mainstream once again with conservative mouthpieces planting the seeds of hate. The only doubt lies here at home rooting from bigotry. Watch the white hands paint Obama in Blackface at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/bamboozling-obama.html
