White House deluged with petitions for secession
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.

Re: White House deluged with petitions for secession
I don't see it happening without an economic collapse, or years of civil strife aimed at the elite and their intelligentsia.

A tax revolt with enough steam could be a tipping point. The government is broke. 15 million people abandoned the system during the last election.

It makes sense, really. We are more divided than ever. Ultimately, it will come down to economics as the bankers will just tell their government what to do.

Not a good idea to sign any petition or sign up with any political group anywhere.

The problem is right in their own state.

Please think twice before signing any document of this kind

I know someone who signed a "no nukes" petition in 2000...and after 9/11 found herself on the national No-Fly list. Everytime she went to travel, she was pulled aside for questioning, even though she had never joined any radical group, and didn't have a criminal record nor a foreign sounding name

she finally was told that people who signed any kind of "peace" organization petition or anti-war group were considered potential risks to the US military

how easly they abandon ship when the chips are down , when the seas of life start getting rough they all want to abandon ship and avoid the storm and their responsibility, we can overcome this bad economy and we will, we need to man up and quit blaming all our ill,s on the OBAMA administration, if romney had won we would still be in the hurt locker this is a storm of epic proportions, one that has been brewing for many many years. what will it take to get back on track to get real growth and long term stability a house divided will not stand long we need to come together now more than ever there are no more democrats , there are no more republicans there is only you and i and we are and will always be AMERICANS.

I also posted the following on one of the other related threads yesterday. Take heed:

>>>>>
Of all the talk and threads related to secession;
Most all of these are knee-jerk reactions that have not been thought out.

Until a proposed governmental structure (laws), revised Constitution (laws), and proposed means to address fiscal responsibilities and liabilities (laws) that would outline the state's continued operation separate from the US Federal Government and the protections defined by means of the US Constitution (as these states would surely now be at-odds with the US) - you have no idea what you're actually promoting.

This is akin to loading the family in the car for vacation, though no preparation, no packing of clothes/ food/ supplies, no determined destination, and not even a determination of direction of travel has been made. You are then traveling an unknown path, headed for unknown interactions that may well likely include many unforeseen troubles and calamities - and your family is now an integral part of this very dynamic equation. Just because there is fuel in the car doesn't mean you're prepared for the trip.

Many states are similar to my own (Colorado), in that the majority of the state is populated by working, keep-to-yourself, small government supporters. However, it is the few larger cities within said states (Denver and Boulder for example in Colorado) that overwhelm the representation of the state to be considered as a liberal one.

Of course, a majority of the citizenry are interested in returning to the "freedoms" we enjoyed in the recent past. The dangers are that, until specific language is recorded to determine the path, direction, and ultimate destination - you may well be trading off for another government that has even greater desire to influence and control your life.

It's true that what would happen after secession has not been thought out by most people signing these petitions

however, that has never stopped humans in the past from calmly embarking on all kinds of world changing misadventures, such as the last civil war, the First world war and the Iraq war

the problem is that reason has nothing to do with it when people get pushed far enough, are desperate enough or filled with enough emotion to override the desire to maintain the status-quo...or the status-quo is abruptly changed and the social contract renogiated without apparent consent

As a student of history, you can see all the necessary ingredients for combustion in the current situation...and building

It's not just in the USA however, it is clearly similar in Europe and probably brewing in China as well

I think 2013 will be the beginning of an extremely rocky era for these increasingly autocratic yet highly indebted nation states.

How they manage to contain restless populations while trying to balance their budget shortfalls should be interesting

US anti-war activists hit by secret airport ban
By Andrew Gumbel
03 August 2003

After more than a year of complaints by some US anti-war activists that they were being unfairly targeted by airport security, Washington has admitted the existence of a list, possibly hundreds or even thousands of names long, of people it deems worthy of special scrutiny at airports.

....It is not just left-wingers who feel unfairly targeted. Right-wing civil libertarians have spoken out against the secret list, and at least one conservative organisation, the Eagle Forum, says its members have been interrogated by security staff.



Anyone who thinks that signing a petition like this won't put them on some kind of govt "person of interest" list should think twice

that said, if you feel strongly on the subject you shouldn't let fear of the government keep you from doing something you believe in..

just be aware of the consequences before you do it, and accept that you are now on the govt radar
