Secede Petitions Cover All 50 States, Over 660K Signatures


To answer the question right up front, no, this is most likely not a serious movement to secede. Certainly not in deep blue states like Brokeifornia (10,036 at time of writing), NY (12,806), and Massachusetts (107), among others. Most of the petitions are carbon copies of all the others. Heck, it took 5 minutes for me to create the Alaska one, and only because I forgot my login password and had to reset it. No, this is mostly people showing that this is still a Democratic Republic, and want the Obama admin to understand that the minority and their opinions matter, that Obama shouldn’t ramrod his agenda down the throats of America

(Daily Caller) Less than a week after a New Orleans suburbanite petitioned the White House to allow Louisiana to secede from the United States, petitions from seven states have collected enough signatures to trigger a promised review from the Obama administration.

By midnight Tuesday, more than 660,000 digital signatures appeared on 69 separate secession petitions covering all 50 states, according to a Daily Caller analysis of requests lodged with the White House’s “We the People” online petition system.

A petition from Vermont, where talk of secession is a regular feature of political life, was the final entry.

Remember back to 2004 when President Bush won and John Kerry lost, liberals were advocating secession of Blue states, along with referring to Red states as “flyover” states, flying the American flag upside down, and calling the Red states “dumbf*ckistan“.

“Gov. Perry believes in the greatness of our Union and nothing should be done to change it. But he also shares the frustrations many Americans have with our federal government,” according to a statement from the governor’s office.

But, apparently the American Right isn’t allowed to voice their concerns in the “progressive” United States.

A backlash Monday night saw requests filed with the White House to strip citizenship rights from Americans who signed petitions to help states secede. (RELATED: Anti-secession forces fight back with White House deportation petitions)

Progressives (read “fascists”) hate when people other than themselves are accorded First Amendment Rights.

Certainly, some are serious. Others are blowing off steam. Most surely are tired of the massive Central Government trying to dictate everything from the fever swamps of Washington, D.C.
