More than 350,000 Americans have signed a petition to withdraw their states from the U.S.
Residents of more than half of U.S. states, namely, 350,000 people declared their unwillingness to live in the country under the leadership of past winner in the presidential election of Barack Obama. They all signed the petition to withdraw their states from the U.S. on the official White House Web site.

Residents of 29 U.S. states, in particular, 350 thousand people signed a petition to secede from the United States in the region on the official White House Web site. Such a decision, U.S. residents took after Barack Obama's victory in the presidential elections of the past.

According to U.S. media reports, only the number of signatories per night increased from 100 to 350 thousand people, and the number of states, protesting against the "tyranny of the state," Obama - from 20 to 29. They are all you really need a peaceful secession from the United States and the opportunity to form their own government. Citizens referred to the Declaration of Independence, which states: "If any Form of Government becomes destructive, people have the right to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government."

Disapproval of the current president expressed not anonymous Internet users, but authorized U.S. citizens. In particular, the establishment of the Republic of Texas voted 56 people in the region, for the independence of Louisiana - 31000. Most petitions filed by residents of states that voted for Obama's opponent, Mitt Romney.

Last time from the U.S. states came out in 1860 and 1861, after President Abraham Lincoln was elected. Then the civil war began.

Re: More than 350,000 Americans have signed a petition to withdraw their states from the U.S.
Petiton subject: Peacefully grant the State of Texas to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.

Petiton text: 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.

Not exactly. Alot of signatures for the respective states come from people outside of that particular state. So if say 20,000 signatures appear on a signature for a respective state, approximately half of them are from people who don't live in that state so it's not really the will or desire of that many people in that particular state.

Also 350k is a really small percentage of the approximately 313 million people in this country so impressive as it sounds, it's still basically the fringe of our society and not really "the will of the people"

I have kept saying that

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree with those signing the petitions

In 40 years of watching elections, as a history major, I have *never* seen an election result in a flood of petition requests within days...

Not when Clinton was elected the 2nd time and many disagreed, not when Bush was elected the 2nd time and many disagreed..this is not a partisan thing, imho

it is a reflection of a deep division in the country, a sense that the government does not listen to them and worse...a belief that it useless trying to sent representatives or senators to represent them

Secession is divorce for nations, discussion of divorce is a measure of unreconcilable differences.

Let's see how this evolves in coming months. If it stops here, we're OK, if those numbers keep multiplying , worth keeping an eye on

350,000 is something around 1/10 of 1% of the population of the U.S.

In other words, who gives a shit? More people in America are wiping their asses each second. It's a number that means nothing.

And so . . . ?

AND the 350,000 signatures is 50,000 less than the petition to have Trump removed as a Macy's pitchman. So . . .

there are more people upset with Trump than there are wanting to secede form the union.

So. There.

The U.S. Constitution does not provide a clear answer to the question of whether a particular state to secede from the United States. The text of the tenth amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
[link to en.wikipedia.org]
Treated it like this: the individual states have the right to make decisions that are not initially prohibited the fundamental law of the country. And in the U.S. Constitution says nothing about what kind of staff do not have the right to go into free-swimming.
As you know, in the years 1861-1865 11 southern states declared secession from the United States, and ended the civil war. Despite the fact that in America today prefer to consider this war a "war of the North and the South" or a war to abolish slavery, in fact it was more of an armed conflict between the federal and state governments, urged the confederate of the state.

But in 1869 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in "Texas v. White" formulated the so-called "new constitutional doctrine of American federalism." Decision in this case is one of the most important constitutional cases, and right in the U.S., is known to be a precedent, therefore, the courts have since interpreted any "acts of separatism" as a violation of the constitution. The Supreme Court determined the relationship between all the states as "inseparable" and "final". Lawyers state: there is legal case. After the sixth article of the U.S. Constitution explicitly states the right of "freedom and independence" of the states.

In general, legal loopholes for separatism in the United States are, it's just how certain stakeholders will interpret them.

1st of all, you're Canadian, I would not expect you to understand or sympathize with any kind of rebellion (a rebellion is a fight to return to a previous form of government, vs a revolution which is to create a new form)

I would suggest you need to keep your eyes on Quebec, who have re-elected the separatists and are threatening to split off, those damn crybabies, lol

2nd: the US revolution was accomplished by the efforts of less than 10% of the population, many say closer to 3%

I know you don't know much about US history and never got around to kicking out the Queen, so here:

[link to www.urbandictionary.com]

During the American Revolution, the active forces in the field against the King's tyranny never amounted to more than 3% of the colonists. Three per-centers today, for the most part, identify with this 3% because they were true patriots fighting for the freedoms the nation we love and honor was founded on. Three per-centers intend to maintain their God-given natural rights to liberty and property. History itself, for good or ill, is made by determined minorities. Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed citizens to change the world. Indeed, it has never been done otherwise.

Here’s a very important set of facts about the Revolutionary War that every person who would call themselves an American should know.

During the Revolutionary War, only THREE percent of the people actually fought against Great Britain.

Only TEN percent of the citizens actively supported that three percent.

Approximately TWENTY percent considered themselves to be on the side of the Revolution, but they did not actively participate.

Towards the climatic end of the war, approximately THIRTY percent actually fought on the side of the British.


The rest of the citizens had no disposition either way. They didn't care. They didn't want anything to do with what they deemed to simply be a political issue.



.....

As a student of American history, I merely pointing out that it is never wise to dismiss a small group of highly motivated people, not in foreign countries, not in this country

This is all posturing, of course, and at this point the people signing these petitions are merely voicing their frustration

It is up to their elected representatives to reassure them that their concerns are being heard

Re: More than 350,000 Americans have signed a petition to withdraw their states from the U.S.
Went to your link, (looking for Oregon) and all that I saw on it was for the State of Texas. Unfortunately, there were names on there (yes, they list every single name and their city/state of origin) which would most likely not count for the final tally.

I ALSO noticed that one has to "register" in order to vote. Given Obama's fascination with drones and his propensity for watching "Snuff Films" (i.e., Benghazi), there is no way that I would just hand over my information to someone who is not only capable of, but has proven that he is more than willing to send a drone through my front door. I have not forgotten that during the last Census, ALL citizens' homes were GPS'd with no understandable or believable explanation save for making it easier to aim those drones.

However, should the issue become so overwhelming and urgent that a national vote be taken, in the (relative) anunymity of the Ballot Box, I believe that a LOT of citizens WOULD vote to at least explore the possibility.

One caveat: should this actually happen, every voter MUST possess and SHOW a valid ID. Otherwise we will have 110% of eligible voters voting (!) as we did during the recent Presidential election.

This only works when the government fears the people and ours doesn't because we are too drugged up and dumbed down to take action.

Also, we are not allowed to bear arms.

We are only allowed to have a few pop-guns but no real ARMS.

I personally would be afraid to put my name on any of these petitions. You are basically giving them your name and where you live and shouting "hey, I am an enemy of the Federal Government." When they start rounding people up, who do you think they will come for first???

I haven't been following this story and don't have an opinion one way or another but just refreshed my feed list and this article was at the top

W.H. Petition Calls for Stripping Citizenship and Exile for Anyone Who Signs Petition to Secede

[link to www.weeklystandard.com]
"If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth programme, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead, it becomes logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs.

Communism or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite."

Gary Allen

The same thing happened in 2004 after Bush was re-elected.

Remember this:

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15472


Except back in 2000, secession from "Jesus Land" was seen to be a good and noble thing

I lived in New England and I remember hearing the positive interviews with the "brave" heads of the Vermont independence movement on "Democracy Now"

I guarantee if Romney had won and Hawaii, Vermont and Oregon were the ones signing these petitions with 70,000 votes, the media would be clamoring that it was a clear sign the will of the people had been ignored

I just want there to be some consistency how these things are seen...

Actually, OP, about 5,000 people have signed ALL those petitions to make it LOOK like they're supported far more than they really are.
