Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them

Here's an interesting petition to the Obama administration I found on the WhiteHouse.gov website. I'm inclined to sign it, but am a bit reluctant not knowing what the potential personal fallout could be. Not excited about being placed on some "list" myself for signing it.

Your thoughts?

we petition the obama administration to:

Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them

Mr. President, please sign an executive order such that each American citizen who signed a petition from any state to secede from the USA shall have their citizenship stripped and be peacefully deported.

Created: Nov 12, 2012

Signatures needed by December 12, 2012 to reach goal of 25,000: 16,743
Total signatures on this petition: 8,257

4. Or, just mock them.

This whole secession thing is ridiculous and childish. And I read the other day that studies have show that people are getting dumber. Coincidence?

9. Or...have ALL 50 states start a petition to secede.

Makes it a moot point.

11. I like this one better.

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/deport-everyone-signed-petition-withdraw-their-state-united-states-america/dmQl1bXL

Mostly because it's gaining headway the fastest, though it says about the same thing. I just read an article that referred to petitions like these as "trolling." I think that the people who start petitions, like these two, are actually serious. These people are the ones holding us back as a nation. Why would we be able to exile them? Well we probably can't. Then again they are attempting to divide the Union and could be considered National Dissenters.

I have no doubt in my mind that everybody who wants to deport hard working families from this country because they are not legal, are the same people starting and signing these petitions to secede. If they are no longer happy to live here, and these immigrants are; fair is fair. Let the happy immigrants stay and deport the National Dissenters, even if that means Cordoning of a little chunk of of the South and letting them start from scratch.
