Secession Movement Explodes: White House Secede Petitions Reach 675,000 Signatures, 50-State Participation

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



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 6:00 a.m. EST Wednesday, more than 675,000 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.

Petitions from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas residents have accrued at least 25,000 signatures, the number the Obama administration says it will reward with a staff review of online proposals.

The Texas petition leads all others by a wide margin. Shortly before 9:00 a.m. EST Wednesday, it had attracted 94,700 signatures. But a spokesperson for Gov. Rick Perry said Tuesday afternoon that he does not support the idea of his state striking out on its own.

      as if Perry has any say… Did the royal governors of the colonies have any say or sway on their citizens?


      it would serve the people far better to have addressed the election fraud issue directly in petitions, rather than secession. had these people from each state petitioned the government in great numbers to acknowledge, address , and correct the blatant voter irregularities.. the anomalies.. the fraud.. then, that would be the msm headlines today – bringing to the forefront for all to see, the grand theft. that, coupled with holding their own district representatives accountable might not only put this issue under the microscope, but also potentially effect real change in the process, as the entire world’s attention would have been drawn to this. instead, the rest of america and the world are witnessing what amounts to as nothing more than an expression of ignorance, an admission of idiocy among the american people while the real problems get swept under the rug, which is what we have now presented to the world at large.
      so.. as all should clearly see, this secession movement is absolutely wrongheaded.. a diversion tactic.. drawing focus away from the one thing that should be gaining prominence. sheer lunacy and ignorance reigns supreme, while the real sheep of this country steer themselves and the rest of us right along with them, off the proverbial cliff. thanks a lot.

      • whitehorse1179

        They even have petitions for voting fraud too…. :lol:
        You can look at this Secession as ignorant, or you can look at it from a different point of view. Many people are wakeing up, very unhappy and are actually starting to do something about our current WONDERFUL situation right here in the US.

        • RAINSCRYPT

          there is no such thing as legitimate secession. the Constitution does not provide for the right of the people or state to secede from the union. the tenth amendment does not apply. any attempt at actual secession is an unconstitutional act of aggression against the united states. any person who tries to legitimize secession is giving you disinfo. also.. a convenient misreading of the Declaration of Independence where it states: .. the right of the people to alter or to abolish.. does not translate as abandonment of the union in secession and in no way supports it.
          yes, there are petitions covering fraud, which i support. but look at the numbers. that is the point.


      a triumph for divisionists – “got to keep the loonies on the path”.

    • kdc0521

      Well that’s definitely an eye-opener, 50 states? As Rodney Dangerfield used to say… “Tough crowd…”

    • Whiskey Zero

      The government has been petitioned many times on many issues and simply ignores us like we are simple subjects…the most blatant was 911. On 9/11/2001, the government essentially became a criminal enterprise.

      Rube bait. These people are sending somebody money. Stupid people. Send me money instead, and I’ll grant you independence. :twisted:

      Who might the culprits behind this lunacy be? Perhaps, the KKK and other racist’s hate groups both male and female, certain big banks, occult secret societies like the Masons, and all the Southern dumb down poor Whites, who would follow a tarantula to it’s web, if it could convince them with spin that it had found a way to make them all rich? This continues to be hilarious and pathetic. Moreover, a sign, that some people never grow up… nor some states….

      • anonymoustache

        Perhaps we should have just remained a British colony…

        Many people are no longer buying into either side of the federal notion that one single city without a state should gather up and then redistribute the wealth of all of the states in one of
        the most powerful nations in history-
        especially all the lies and treachery made blatantly obvious in recent times
        by BOTH parties,election after election.

        It’s become a puppet show-
        the checks&balances are completely out of balance.

      And I guess many Americans are naive enough to think Washington will stand aside and allow States to secede from the Union. It won’t happen folks. To start with, if a state (through its legislature) reaches the point of seriously contemplating a vote for secession, the effort will be quickly brought to an end by Washington simply cutting off all Federal aid (welfare, highway funds etc. etc) which will bring the movement crashing down within 24 hours or less. Besides, it’s already been tried once by a generation of Southerners who proved themselves, on the battle field, to be the toughest, most determined group of Americans to ever walk up-right on bare-feet through freezing rain and snow; which Robert E. Lee’s gallant, Army of Northern Virginia did on more than one ccasions prior to putting a whipping on well equipped Yankee armies that were twice its size. Anyone deluded enough to think this present generation of spoiled, over-weight, over-indulged, over-rated, over-propagandized Americans would deprive themselves of a single modern convenience for the sake of defending rights and principles are sadly mistaken to say the least. And it makes me sad to say this, for nothing would benefit the American people and the entire world any more than escaping from a financially insolvent government that daily proves itself to be spiritually and morally corrupt from top to bottom.

      Does it seem like this nationwide petition would get a slap in the face from the White House, or rather, why is there a “Homeland Security Partnership” signed by the President just before the election results? I almost think that this may have been expected to happen, 50 states asking to leave the US to make their own government. It’s interesting anyway.

      This is what happens when all the Fat Cat’s from around the World take over, and the people no longer have any representation … In other words we no longer have a government, we are the slaves to the Fat Cat’s that have the government in their pockets, the best their debt money could buy…

      The First state that does succeed will have two things happen all the Losers on welfare will leave
      then many Bussiness people will move there and the state will experience a major surge in its GDP. It will become over night what teh US could be without the war machine and welfare .
      Most state Governments have not considered it yet . But all it will take is one and its game over for the US. people say they should not be able to leave till they pay the debt .
      Get realistic all they have ever paid is the Interest on the debt and they do not plan on ever paying it . So let face it some states are willing to admit were done its Unsustainable.
      Its Time to file Bankrupcy and clear the sheet. Its Called a bad loan and the Fed a private corporation made teh bad loan .. Its their problem not ours.

      The number of petitioners is ever so constantly riseing as people are realizing that we NEED to do something and now. Oh hey, They even have an impeach obama petition….

      LOFL, I think this all has to do with the mutts re-election. Everyone knows it was a cooked election and people are mad as hell now. THEY WANT NO PART OF THIS MUSLUM IN THE WHITEHOUSE!. :twisted:

    • StavoV

      It would be best, for all concerned, that those who want to secede, should sever all ties and secede from the union. Never to return or be treated as traitors that they are and shot on the spot. Yes….good way to clean house, one way or the other.
