Secession petitions flood White House website

November 12, 2012 8:27 pm  

(Examiner) – Over the weekend, citizens in Arkansas, South Carolina, Tennessee and Missouri filed petitions at the White House web site asking to secede from the United States as a result of Obama’s re-election.

Two petitions were launched for South Carolina and Missouri by different people, but the petitions are nearly identical. The two petitions for South Carolina are identical except for one line, and the two petitions for Missouri are exactly the same.

This brings the total number of states with petitions to 19. On Sunday, we reported that residents in 15 states filed petitions to withdraw from the Union.

On the day after the election, “Michael E” from Slidell, Louisiana, filed a petition at the White House “We the People” site, requesting that Louisiana be allowed to secede. That petition has 12,585 signatures as of this writing.

Other states soon followed.

A petition for Texas was launched on Friday. That petition has garnered 15,928 signatures as of this writing.

Similar petitions have been launched for Kentucky, Colorado, New Jersey, Montana, North Dakota, Indiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, New York and Oregon.

According to the White House “We the people” site, petitions have 30 days to reach 25,000 signatures. Once the threshold has been reached, the petition will be reviewed by the administration and a response will be given.

“My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government,” the president is quoted at the site.

But the president does not have the authority to grant states the right to secede.

The petitions, however, are a clear indication of the deep feelings many people have after Tuesday’s election. Regina Conley of Red Alert Politics wrote that the petitions are a “physical symbol of the deep resentment for the direction in which the United States is moving under the Obama administration.”
