There’s close to a million of us that have signed...
Is that “nothing”? Or is that a message that is hard to ignore?
Get a grip yourself...
It’s not hard to ignore; Obama is already doing exactly that, and I expect he will keep doing it. At best, you’ll get a dismissive response from the White House telling you what most of the rest of us already know: secession doesn’t work that way.
There are only really two things that the petition accomplishes:
#1 - It paints a target on the back of those who sign.
#2 - It makes Republicans look like crazy, unhinged sore losers.
I agree, and I don’t see the big damn deal anyway. Everyone knows that these are not OFFICIAL petitions. These things are not legally significant. Aren’t they just written up by anybody who feels like it?
I saw one that must have been removed (it was in a list) and it was just a horrible babble of racist rant and nonsense “words” strung together, all in caps.
I view this stuff as an electronic “suggestion box”, meant to be purely symbolic. No one that signs thinks these are REAL and will produce real results.
Every body has their panties in a big wad over nothin’.
Now, if there were a REAL petition to separate NYC from the state of New York......millions would sign on to that in no time flat.
