30 States File Secession Petitions – Are You Serious?
So last week was supposed be the end of all the BS from election right? We all know better then that. Residents in 30 states have filed Secession Petitions. I find this laughable on many levels. "We The People" voted to keep Obama in office and a week later comes people trying to secede from the Union?
According to the Huffington Post, the "We The People" program via the White House website has been signed in mass numbers. Petitions have also been filed to exile individuals or strip them of their citizenship, because that's the big "F You" to the man or so these idiots think.
A threshold of 25k signatures needs to be met within 30 days to be reviewed. There is one from Texas that has reached 60k signatures. It reads:
The US continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the federal government's neglect to reform domestic and foreign spending. The citizens of the US suffer from blatant abuses of their rights such as the NDAA, the TSA, etc. Given that the state of Texas maintains a balanced budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world, it is practically feasible for Texas to withdraw from the union, and to do so would protect it's citizens' standard of living and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers which are no longer being reflected by the federal government.
New York is on the list of the 30 states in the petition rounds. These are just Internet petitions so if they will actually come through remains to be seen. I understand some folks are mad about the election but guess what, it's voted by THE PEOPLE and the masses voted to keep Obama in office. If you like it or not, shut the hell up and stop crying like 2 year old who got shoved to the floor by their cousin. Times are tough and THE PEOPLE thought he was the better of the two options.
Just for the record: I could have cared less who won the election.
