Examiner falsly claims that 15 States including Texas have filed a seccession petitions...

Last edited Sun Nov 11, 2012, 11:54 AM - Edit history (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.

These petitions were filed just days after the 2012 Presidential election.

6. No. Zero States Have Filed.

A few individuals have posted petitions. They have nothing to do with the government of the states they inhabit, except as individual voters. Typical Examiner lies.

My niece's ex-husband just posted that Allen West demanded a recount and he WON. Not according to everything I've been reading. I sent him a link and politely inquired why he could want to support a crazy person. No response yet.

15. Colorado's staying as an Union.

 

The fundies can go move to Bikini Atoll or Somalia if they want no government interference.

I, as a Coloradan, reject any secession efforts - and laugh at the stupid fucks that are attempting to divide the country.

We've had people demanding secession almost since statehood. We probably wouldn't want to join with those other states though.

Difficult enough getting it through the states let alone three countries!

(And I didn't literally mean "kiss good-bye" because then you'd get that nasty tar-sand oil all over your lips and face! )

Who are they kidding? Some silly winger in one of those states may have circulated a petition among his/her friends but I highly doubt that 99.9% of New Yorkers, New Jerseyites and Oregonians want to secede from the union. This is right wing drivel.

37. We should start or own petition

Demanding that they do so. Us the remaining citizens will suffer, of course. There will be a severe shortage of white sheets, and it is possible that our culture won't survive the defection of Charlie Daniels, Hank Williams Jr, and Kid Rock. Artists of this stature are not easy to come by, my friends. What will we ever do without Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh elevating our political discourse to levels unseen since the days of Athens, the birthplace of democracy? Who will create jobs for us? Who will uncover the very real things our government hides from us everyday? What really happened in Benghazi, Whitewater the assassination of Foster, who will work tirelessly for the people's right to uncover birth certificates and college transcripts? Who will shine light on blow jobs possibly happening RIGHT NOW in the Whitehouse? It is a dark, dark day my friends. However as weak willed, bleeding heart stoopid liberal morans that we are I fear we must cave in to their righteous virility and wisdom and with a sigh that emanates deep in our souls we must allow our fellow citizens their freedom and bid them a tearful adieu (that is french for "my heart is breaking")

42. There is no process by which a state can "petition" to secede

Unilateral efforts to secede are illegal. The Supreme Court has ruled that the United States is "an indestructible union." Remember the Civil War?

and it is up to the administration to decide whether or not to grant them serious consideration. I don't think a few thousand people in a nation of several hundred million will do more than piss and moan or go back to the millitia days.

47. While we considered your request we temporarily

suspended your statehood and excluded you from government procedings. During that period we admended the Constitution towit: Only African Americans (at least 25% heritage) can hold the office of President and Vice-President. Now back to your business: petition denied.
