Secession Petitions Gain Supporter -- Fast

Call it the confederacy of petitioners, except the petitions have now spread beyond the South.

In the days since President Obama secured re-election, a wave of petitions from states in almost every region of the country has hit WhiteHouse.gov calling for secession from the union.

At the White House site We the People, visitors can submit petitions on a range of "important" issues facing the country, and the White House promises to review them and issue a response once they reach a certain "signature threshold."

But some loopholes in the procedure allow the White House to get out of that commitment, as ABC's Sarah Parnass recently reported.

The states with the most signatures were:

Texas - 77,090 signatures Louisiana - 29,309 signatures Florida - 22,873 signatures Georgia - 21,783 signatures Alabama - 21,183 signatures

1. Is Sarah Palin's Secession group there yet? Lol, the way to counter those groups is with

other groups refusing to secede. Is there at place for people who do not want to secede? What fun to overwhelm them with anti-secession petitions!

That is not a whole lot of people and it's a good way to find the fringes of society I guess.

2. Woo, 77k Texans want to secede.

3.5 million Texans voted for Obama. And yet the "Liberal Media" thinks 77k dipshits deserve a story.

5. The problem is that there is blue areas

in red states and red areas in blue states, so a lot of folks would be forced to move if they didn't like their new country.

I personally think a democrat ran country would be better but the people who want to secede can't go without their portion of the national debt they helped incur.

8. And somebody needs to break it to them that they'll need a passport

to visit their relatives in any other state remaining in the Union. Rich folks will have to use a passport to get into NYC so they can go to Fashion Weeks. Stupid fucks. Or does the the state of Texas plan to have its own State Department.
