WH Petition: "Keep the United States United"

Last edited Tue Nov 13, 2012, 11:11 PM - Edit history (1)

This is a petition I found that is a response the secession crap and is very close to reaching 150 signatures. That would make it publicly viewable and help it to reach 25,000. It currently has 136 signatures. I would ask for you to sign, if you have a chance.

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Keep the United States United
The United States of America was founded on principles of democracy and cooperation. We have gone through over two centuries of triumph and turmoil, but more importantly,we have done so as a united country.

Times have been tough for all of us; some states are frustrated to the point of petitioning for secession, but now is not the time to be divided.Their actions can only harm our country. The best way to help the American people is not through bipartisan bickering, secession, or the general lack of cooperation that runs rampant in our country. The best and only way to help the American people is by continuing to be “one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

We the undersigned implore the Administration to do everything in its power to keep our nation united.

1. I'm not much of a signer of things like this, but I think the cause is good, so I will kick your OP.

8. Democracy doesn't work if you get to leave when you lose an election...

Plus this isn't about that. There is no real means to secede. This is racism and being a sour loser.
