As of Saturday November 10, 2012, 15 States have petitioned the Obama Administration for withdrawal from the United States of America in order to create its own government.
States following this action include: Louisiana, Texas, Montana, North Dakota, Indiana, Mississippi, Kentucky, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, Colorado, Oregon and New York. These States have requested that the Obama Administration grant a peaceful withdrawal from the United States.
These petitions were filed just days after the 2012 Presidential election.
Louisiana was the first State to file a petition a day after the election by a Michael E. from Slidell, Louisiana. Texas was the next State to follow by a Micah H. from Arlington, Texas.
The government allows one month from the day the petition is submitted to obtain 25,000 signatures in order for the Obama administration to consider the request.
The Texas petition reads as follows:
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.
As of 12:46 am, Sunday, signatures obtained by Louisiana, 7,358; Texas, 3,771; Florida, 636; Georgia, 475; Alabama, 834; North Carolina, 792; Kentucky, 467; Mississippi, 475; Indiana, 449; North Dakota, 162; Montana, 440; Colorado, 324; Oregon, 328; New Jersey, 301 and New York, 169. Many more States are expected to follow.
A petition is not searchable at WhiteHouse.gov until 150 signatures have been obtained. It is the originator's responsibility to obtain these signatures.
The Texas petition can be reviewed and/or signed by clickinghere.
This will end well.

Do the people advocating State secession have any idea what they would be subjecting themselves to? It's like the shiftless 18 year old son who wants to move out from Mom and Dad's house because he gets yelled at to keep his room clean and not smoke pot in the house.

The South will rise again... to the news that nothing happened. Then it'll go back to bed and sleep until 3 pm.

From the last few elections, going by the popular vote, it seems they've all been pretty close. It seems to me that no matter who gets the presidency, almost half the population didn't vote for it. Gets me thinking, Fuck it, we should just split up the USA into 3 different sections, each with it's own federal government. You could have a section for the hardcore religious right, where Porn and abortion is banned, and you can have all the guns you want, and they're happy. An ultra liberal section where weed and gay marriage and abortions for all and taxing the shit out of the wealthy to pay for social programs reigns. And then a section that is moderate with fiscal conservatism and, and some moderately liberal social permissiveness. I know it isn't at all realistic, but part of me thinks if the country is at any given time 52% to 48%, it hardly constitutes a statistical majority.
