Skip to comments.Will Texas secede? Petition reaches 25,000 signatures, triggering White House review
Posted on 11/12/2012 3:13:58 PM PST by Nachum
With more than 28,600 signatures collected since Nov. 9, a White House website petition from an Arlington, Texas man has attracted enough support to trigger an automatic review by the Obama administration.
Petitions submitted through the Obama White Houses We the People program require a response from the administration after they have attracted 25,000 signatures.
The Daily Caller reported Monday morning that since the day after President Barack Obamas re-election, citizens from 20 states had submitted petitions asking for peaceful separations from the United States. (RELATED: White House website deluged with secession petitions from 20 states)

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
ROFL...every state has its idiots. No...we will not. How silly.
We the People response: hahahahahahahahaha get real.
Will Texas secede?
The simple answer is.....NO....
The last Civil War was triggered by black slavery...
...the one coming by a black enslaver.
It’s kind of amazing however that they got that many signatures in such a short amount of time. The secession of Texas might be the only way to guarantee an environment for those who don’t want their children taught sodomy and how great King Obama is. Hopefully, they’d take a lot of other states with them.
please add me to your ping list
Would love to see it happen. Obummer’s legacy is already garbage. This would be the icing on the cake.
Common-sense says this goes nowhere. Deep down, my hope is that 10 months from now I’m just this side of the Texas border aiming toward DC.
White Hut review results: “No.”
White Hut retaliation: IRS audits of everyone who signed.
Call me crazy....
He is not king, so stop posting untruths.
Perhaps some bargaining leverage in the little known fact the joint resolution of congress admitting Texas into the union gives its citizens the right to split the original state into up to four additional states, subject to certain conditions.
“He is not king, so stop posting untruths. “
Well, if he is not King then perhaps you can show us some proof, news articles even, that someone has held him to the law. Go ahead. Show us that he is not a King that can rule with impunity.
Obama’s re-election, with the “takers” now overwhelming the “makers” signals that America has no future. The country has been in economic, cultural and moral decay for some time now, at an ever-quickening pace.
I’m not at all averse to the notion of secession.
Whistling past the graveyard, are we?
We are pretty evenly divided and each part has less in common with the other every day.
A lot of people correctly see what the left as doing as the end of the nation anyway.
This is the first election since Kennedy/Nixon where it is abundantly obvious fraud changed the outcome. Did I mention the two sides hate each other?
Obama won a narrow, fraudulent victory, yet he is acting like it is a rubber stamp not just for the unpopular things he has already done, but a mandate for a lot more of the same. He doesn't comprehend that he needs to be president to the half the country that hates him.
Finally, this was The Election. The most radical president with the most radical agenda in the nation's history just won reelection. For anyone paying attention, there is no going back. We are now a european-style socialist state in a financial situation similar to Greece with no one to bail us out. Obamacare will never be repealed and the debt will grow unchecked. The population has reached the tipping point and has a vested interest an unsustainable system.
There simply aren't any good options going forward, only an array of undesirables stretching from bad to catastrophic.
Would Chairman Obama be more appropriate? He does often remind me of Mao.
You and I live in different worlds. I have been in and around politics since 1972. I can’t even begin to tell you how wrong you are about so many things. I am not being rude. But truly, you are mistaken about so much.
I think you were pretty much spot on.
Would love to see them get there freedom.
Would love to see them get their freedom.
Thief in Chief.
Hmmm. seccesion. I’m not sure whether that belongs more in the change, or the hope category!
I don’t see Obama as a legitimate leader. He has shredded the constitution of this country. Tell me, if 51% of the population voted to end freedom of speech, would that law be legitimate? No. Because it violates the constitution. Obama has not only acted illegally, he has lied to the American people, and he has jeopardized our national security. I hate this man with more passion than I have EVER hated a Democrat before, and many feel the same way. He is the most far-left president we’ve ever had, and just because some dumbass “co-exist” bumper sticker-peddling teenagers, race-loyalists, and moochers voted him into power, does not mean I will ever stop fighting progressive tyranny. If it comes to the secession of red states, so be it.
You have a right to your opinion. I never meant otherwise. But the state of Texas is not going to secede. Ever. We have heard this before. Every few years. It just is not going to happen. But again, that does not mean you are not entitled to your opinion.
I have been in and around politics since 1972.
Other than “We the people.” Is there any legal process for this outside of another civil war?
You’ll have to pardon me for not taking your word for how much smarter you are than me if you can’t address my points.
Not holding office, heaven forbid. I said that wrong. I have worked for and with politicians since 1972. I was 26 and much more idealistic and hopeful and....naive...and..you get the picture.
Oh good heavens. No, no. Never did I mean to imply I am smarter than you. I said we disagree. That does not mean one of us is right and one wrong. It means we have different opinions. Does not make me smarter certainly. Take my word for that, please.
No, he’s a dicktater.....
So true, it took the confederates over a hundred years and a name change, but they won, and the blacks helped.
“There simply aren’t any good options going forward, only an array of undesirables stretching from bad to catastrophic.”
That’s a fact.
I agree with you 100%. We’ve already started thinking about changing our retirement plans and moving to a state with people who think like we do. Here in WA we’re looked at as crazy loon conservatives!
Well, he's not a president, since the term "president" implies accountability. He's no longer accountable to anyone. This has been demonstrated numerous times over the last year or so. Accountable to Congress? No. He has run roughshod over the Constitution, yet the House has failed to exercise its powers to reign him in, and it's highly doubtful this will change. The Supreme Court? No. Chief Justice Roberts abdicated his responsibility last summer.
Now after the election, he's no longer accountable to we, the people. So what term should we use? Chairman?
We need a secession plan. Here it is, with objections to secession answered:
They call him Dicktater Salad.
I signed the damn thing. Will it happen? Nope. But I think 100K people telling the federal government that they are tired of socialist rule should send a nice message.
Just for some perspective here, that is roughly one-tenth of one-percent of the population of Texas.
Hmmmmmm interesting how some topics sometimes become more topical.
Why such glorified titles? He's an imposter, a resident. Scam Artist Hussein. Commie Barack. Just make it truthful
If you see him as King that’s your problem. Out of the heart the mouth speaks.
To me he is dirt. But YOU make sure you bow to him - keep it real, peon.
It will send a message, but will the fedgov listen? It may take the application of a sledgehammer to the brainbox to make it sink in.
Just curious, why is it so absolute that Texas would never “ever” secede? I think if that ever happened, it is possible that what is left of the U.S would declare war on Texas....etc...
Really, though, I am curious for your reasons.
Until it's illegal to do so, I always refer to him proctologically.
