A Petition to Secede DOES NOT Mean Anything
Just because a few thousand people sign a petition to secede from the union does not mean even 99% of the state want it.

But don't take my word for it, I'm a non-religious obamavoter.

Actually as a measure of how many sheep have woken up, and an indication of trends showing how quickly others are awakening, it's a measure of true change a' comin'.

I believe it would be a good idea for a state to secede. IF the state would be better off as its own Country. 0.01% of a state wanting something is nothing to talk about.

Also, I would like to point out that on most of the petitions, people that signed them didn't even live in the state that was petitioning.

It always starts small and grows from there. within hours of barry being selected he contacted the UN and told them to get the gun ban treaty moving. Secession will grow from here....

It is a BIG voice that needs answering. The people have exercised their right to do this:

"Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government."

You would love this if it was about something you believed in...

70% of the signatures are not from the State that is petitioning, its invalid, a resident from another state can not speak for the residents of another state.

Re: A Petition to Secede DOES NOT Mean Anything
Well I think it serves as a peaceful means for those dissatisfied with the current govt. for whatever reason to express that dissatisfaction. so it does mean something. You can disagree with the reasons they express for their dissatisfaction but suely you can understand their desire to make themselves heard?

It does mean something, for some states it is a good idea to secede but until only people from that state only can sign the petition, it does not matter.


Besides like I said. It's less then 0.01% of the state wanting this. I'm sure 2% of the state likes to molest children but we don't want that do we?

Its a start though. More people will wake up and join the movement as it gets noticed.
Then comes the petitions to the State legislatures.
Then the Fed's come crawling on their knees pleading for forgiveness,(Ha Ha, then again you never know!).

Even if 99% of a state did want it, the ones in power are the only ones with a vote. Until state gov is changed nothing will ever be done.

Well, I disagree

True, its very likely that no states will successfully secede

It's also very likely that no one can successfully say successfully secede 5 times fast

However, it most certainly does mean something

It means that half of the country did not vote for Obama

It means that people are prepared to walk away from their country and stand alone

It may not split the country in 2 but it might spark some interesting conversations that could lead to real change

It means the south will rise again

Re: A Petition to Secede DOES NOT Mean Anything
The State and its massive apparatus needs people to fuel its power.

When states like Texas want to secede, its taken a little bit of power away from government.

This can spread and it should.

This isn't about Obama. This is about dismantling the big government machine and its apparatus eg. Police, public servants etc.
