Seven states have exceeded the petition limits that call for an administration response.

I didn't know there were rules for secession already laid out. If Emperor 0bammy gives his go ahead, then is s state then out?

I don’t think that there is any legal provision for states to secede. There are constitutional processes to admit new states, but none that I am aware of to allow states to leave.

If a state declared its independence from Obama’s rule, what would happen? That is uncharted territory.

There isn’t a petition limit for secession, but a standing rule on the WH website that if any petition, about anything, garners at least 25,000 or so signatures, the President will respond to it. That is all.
