SECESSION MOVEMENT EXPLODES

Less than a week after a New Orleans suburbanite petitioned the White House to allow Louisiana to secede from the United States, petitions from seven states have collected enough signatures to trigger a promised review from the Obama administration.

By 6:00 a.m. EST Wednesday, more than 675,000 digital signatures appeared on 69 separate secession petitions covering all 50 states, according to a Daily Caller analysis of requests lodged with the White House’s “We the People” online petition system.

A petition from Vermont, where talk of secession is a regular feature of political life, was the final entry.

Petitions from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas residents have accrued at least 25,000 signatures, the number the Obama administration says it will reward with a staff review of online proposals.

The Texas petition leads all others by a wide margin. Shortly before 9:00 a.m. EST Wednesday, it had attracted 94,700 signatures. But a spokesperson for Gov. Rick Perry said Tuesday afternoon that he does not support the idea of his state striking out on its own.

“Gov. Perry believes in the greatness of our Union and nothing should be done to change it. But he also shares the frustrations many Americans have with our federal government,” according to a statement from the governor’s office.

A backlash Monday night saw requests filed with the White House to strip citizenship rights from Americans who signed petitions to help states secede. (RELATED: Anti-secession forces fight back with White House deportation petitions)

And in a similar nose-thumbing aimed at Texas’ conservative majority, progressives from the liberal state capital of Austin responded Monday with a petition to secede from their state if Texas as a whole should decide to leave the Union.

Late Tuesday a second group of Texans, this one from Houston, lodged their own White House petition. Secession-minded Texans, they wrote, “are mentally deficient and [we] do not want them representing us. We would like more education in our state to eradicate their disease.”

Houstonian “Kimberly F” — The White House does not provide last names — submitted the petition. She told TheDC in an email that ”[w]e need both sides presented, or we all look like a bunch of fools.”

A group from El Paso, too, wants no part of an independent Texas. “Allow the city of El Paso to secede from the state of Texas,” their petition reads. “El Paso is tired of being a second class city within Texas.”

But smaller petitions like theirs are a political side show of a political side show. One effort, aimed at Missourians, called for a nationwide catered pizza party to celebrate when the Show Me State left the U.S. (RELATED: Pizza party! White House petition silliness gets cheesy)

States whose active petitions have not yet reached the 25,000 signature threshold include Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

States want to secede?

Wake me up when shots are fired over it, until then its American Idol without the promise of fame or the exhibition of talent.

There are 2.

Peacefully grant the State of Pennsylvania to withdraw from the United States of America and create a NEW government.

People who want to seceed are idiots and don't understand what would really happen if they somehow managed to do it.

I think it'd be funny to really run down what would happen if a state seceeded from the Union.

First, they'd be basically walled off. If they're no longer part of the USA, what about the military bases there? Additionally, no military manufacturing would occur there, it'd be like getting our NVGs made by the Chinese. The State's National Guard would have to be stripped of all their weapons and start completely over, but ITAR prevents military technology from being exported, so they'd have to go to some foreign country to re-arm. Hell, they'd have to start and fund their very own military from scratch. Along with a post office system and a bunch of other functions.

Second, they'd need a passport to leave the state and have their own customs program.

If they don't have the farmland to totally support themselves, they'd have to import all their food and gasoline as well, from where and what money would they use? Who would accept Texas Dollars as payment for anything?

Not to mention give up the federal funding they receive for everything from highways to education.

People that live there would no longer be eligible to receive Social Security or Medicare.

I'm in favor of having the smallest, most efficient government necessary to serve the people and protect us and our interests. That said, most people have no clue how much they depend on the government.

It just shows how shallow minded these people are.

"Not too long ago two friends of mine were talking to a Cuban refugee, a businessman who had escaped from Castro, and in the midst of his story one of my friends turned to the other and said, “We don’t know how lucky we are.” And the Cuban stopped and said, “How lucky you are! I had someplace to escape to.” In that sentence he told us the entire story. If we lose freedom here, there's no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth. "

There are places far, far more free than the US in the 2nd and 3rd worlds.

Because the gov'ts don't have the money to be all up in everyone's business.
