White House Inundated With Secession Petitions

If you’ll remember, Team Obama created a website, using White House resources and it’s URL, as a “new way to petition the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country.” They “created We the People because we want to hear from you. If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.” In actuality, it seems to be more of a way to to scrape email addresses and names to soft pedal how super duper great Team Obama is and send subtly veiled campaign messages. There have been some interesting ones, quite a few having to do with far left issues, such as making marijuana legal (these crop up a lot, then disappear down the memory hole), and, oh, here’s a fun one

The petition mentions Jesus, Moses, and Mohammed, but, we all know it’s about protecting Islam.

So, are there other fun petitions? Why, yes there are, thank you for asking!

(Daily Caller) How would Old Glory look with 30 stars instead of 50? As far-fetched as it may sound, the White House might soon be forced by its own rules to examine the question.

On Nov.7, the day after President Barack Obama was re-elected, the White House’s website received a petition asking the administration to allow Louisiana to secede.

If 25,000 people sign the petition by Dec. 7, it will “require a response” from the Obama administration, according to published rules of the White House’s online “We the People” program.

“Michael E” from the New Orleans suburb of Slidell penned the initial proposal — the website doesn’t provide last names — in which he asked the Obama administration to “[p]eacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.”

His entire petition consisted of excerpts from the Declaration of Independence.

    If 25,000 people sign the petition by Dec. 7, it will “require a response” from the Obama administration, according to published rules of the White House’s online “We the People” program.

    The White House has conspicuously refrained from comment on other petitions, most notably a popular marijuana legalization effort launched soon after the petition rules were announced. Rules are only enforced when it benefits the Rulers.

    From above: “As far-fetched as it may sound, the White House might soon be forced by its own rules to examine the question.”

    Hahahahahahah! This made beer come out my overly generous nose. They got rulez? Have they even got ONE? Damned if I’ve seen evidence of it.

    Just as with the latest election, what is to keep people from signing more than once? There is no way to verify online petition signatures.
    The only petition to the Black House that I will sign would be one that specifically suggests that Hussein 0bama go fuck himself.

    Obama is the Anti-Lincoln.

    Everything about the upcoming civil war will be just the opposite of the first one.

    Free blacks will enslave whites when the south wins the war.

    I’d love to see six or seven figures of signatures, but I guess if we get the required 25k, that will be something, at least.

    Went over to see; 37,416 signatures already for TX, and thousands each so far in the other states. Good on you, fellow Americans!

    Remember Weather Underground????

    They wanted to break up the USA into parts other countries would own.

    Lets say we not help them by setting up the borders for them.

    If we could get 25,000 people to sign a secession petition from every single state, we can leave the cesspool of DC behind. Obama can have it. All his obots who don’t want to live with the rest of us can move to DC. When all the secessions are complete and all the obots are moved in, we build a big ol’ honkin’ wall around it and we build ourselves a new capital in middle America.

    Let the whole stinkin’ lot of ‘em fend for themselves. Never, ever, ever help them no matter how loud they squeal. Don’t even peek.

    I admire the effort, but there’s no way I would voluntarily put my name on a list for those bastards to comb through. Undoubtedly I’m on others already.

    Petitions? How lame and fruitless. Why are we asking a government that does not represent us if we can leave? Why don’t we just leave?

    Secession petitions are good PR but bad politics. There is a way for states to legally and politically secede from the American union but it must be a state-by-state process established by constitutional secession conventions in each state.
