This is just great... disintigration of the United States of America. Isn't that just what the enemies of America want? - Split us up into a bunch of indefensible units.

Come on Patriots! This is not the answer. First they went after our families, the most fundamental building block of society. Now they are going for the whole country.

Refuse to be a useful idiot. We want a limited Federal Government, not elimination of it.

These petitions are a very easy way for Obemba to start an ‘enemies list’.

If all 50 secede, what have they accomplished?

They will eventually rejoin out of self preservation and because of commerce.

Thus, the Libs and Leftiests and Moderates will come along with the states when they join together.

==

The problem is the politicians that keep getting reelected. And in the New Union, politicians will again take over and move the New Union leftward.

Probably someone could take the time to put it in usable form....but I’m not going to.

I don’t WANT anyone to go to that site. No way, Jose.

I'm not signing the online petition to the WH., no way.

Work it out at the state level first.

First thing I thought of was "Mr President may we secede, Pretty Pretty Please, can we?", like he's going to say, sure go ahead........

These things are ridiculous because no person can start a “petition” for his entire state.

The state on the whole must represent itself, not have some mere single person speak for it.

I appreciate the sentiment, but it really is silly and uneducated in approach. One only speaks for oneself, and as such, if you don’t start a serious movement - emigrate elsewhere and renounce your citizenship.

One thing that might/should come out of this a challenge/brouhaha at the certification of electoral votes in December. Matters of fraud and eligibility could cause a real hangup. A couple of patriotic stout hearted congresspersons might really stir the pot. Of course Biden having the gavel doesn’t bode well.

Secession petitions, in and of themselves, are stupid beyond belief.

Government rules at the point of a gun. Pixels and/or paper are scant opposition.

The MSM has deprived us of the soap box. The political parties have deprived us of the ballot box. What’s left?

It's already gone.

...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, ...

When elected officials and bureaucracies act outside the law they are simply lawbreakers. When the majority of the people vote in favor of the lawlessness that has greatly manifested itself in the highest offices they have withdrawn their consent to be governed by a constitutional government. By what legitimate basis does the United States of America, as a Constitutional republic, still exist?

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

'The People' no longer support that. They voted in support of lawlessness from the highest office on down. They voted against the rule of law. By referendum we now have a banana republic. The USAINO.

All 50 States should secede. Then they should restart the Union with the Constitution, but with amendments that greatly limit the federal government’s authority (especially its commerce and taxation powers).

Why would we want to petition for all 50 states to secede? It really doesn’t accomplish anything if all of the liberal states come with us...

I wouldn’t sign any petition connected to this WH. My IP, computer, and name would be matched and me added to the Marxist’s generated enemy list.
The real secession will happen after the amnesty through the concentrated Latino vote. It will take two voting cycle to change the governorship and then all will be legitimate.

You've been a Freeper since 2007, and don't realize that you're already on 'the list'? Tsk tsk...

As a Texan, here’s a couple of points to make about all this Secession business:

1. Everyone is dismissing the petition for secession with “it must come from the state, and not the citizens”...Well, who compels the state, and the legislators? That would be the citizens...in the next state election cycle, I bet we have some politicians that go on the record in support of secession.

2. “When Texas joined the union, it became bound forever and that agreement cannot be dissolved.” I’m sure it wasn’t legal in the eyes of the British when the colonies revolted and declared independence. A Declaration of Independence dissolves all previous relationships and contracts.

3. Today Rick Perry said “Texas will not secede”. Since when is Texas independence up to Rick Perry? I don’t think he grasps the idea that with secession, all current political leaders will be relieved of their current duties and new elections will be held. No Rick, you don’t get to be President of Texas. Not yours.

4. President Obama is in a pickle with this one...If he doesn’t respond, he remove’s all legitimacy from his “We the People” petition site. The mainstream media has picked it up, and people WILL notice. If he does respond with a resounding “No”, he risks it being interpreted as a challenge to Texas, and arrogant dismissal of the peoples wishes.

5. “The US Military can be deployed to Texas to quell civil unrest.” Bad idea. The entire US military consists of roughly 2 million people. ALL of it. Every service, combined. The population of Texas is about 20 million people, with a gun ownership rate of about 40%....That’s over 7 million armed Texans, who probably aren’t going to be very happy with being “occupying force”. Good luck with that.

The most important part about the petitions are the symbolism and the message. Everyone here in Texas is a little bitter right now, and I expect the signature count on that one to top 200K in the next few days. Not something that can easily be dismissed or ignored.

There would be 50 independent states not United States. Liberal states would have their own liberal problems.

Liberal Progressives have illegally highjacked our political system. What options do you suggest? Getting out the guns? Seriously, this is more a protest than anything. I do not see any state actually seceding.

It’s a protest, but it makes us look kind of silly and uneducated.

Individuals who are disatisfied leave the country. They can’t declare themselves sovereign and stay (as per Family Guy, was it?).

States can do that as a whole but each must speak for the whole people, not have 1 person speaking for it.

It’s perfectly legit if people in the state really want legislators/et al to gin up a declaration of secession. That is the option - at least the initial option.

Why would the liberal states want to secede if we all left? Or why would we want to secede if they all left? 50 independent states doesn’t make any sense either, we’d surely just form into 2 unions almost immediately.
