Union Dissolving: 20 Plus States Now Petitioning White House For Secession


On Saturday, I wrote about two petitions to the White House petition site asking to allow Louisiana and Texas to peacefully withdraw from the United States due to the out of control federal government we have been under for several years. While I think it is probably not such a good idea to petition the people who have been burdening us with debt, defying the Constitution and promoting ignoring and even breaking the law, I do see it as a sign of a lack of union among the people of America. Since then, individual from twenty states now have petitions at Petitions.WhiteHouse.Gov.

The petition for Louisiana quoted sections from the Declaration of Independence:

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

“…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…”

Other petitions for states such as Montana and Florida have focused on a line attributed to Benjamin Franklin: “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

Some have completely abandoned quoting the founding fathers or historical documents, such as the petition submitted for Oregon which simply read ”[A]nd we as citizens would respectively and peacably [sic] seperate [sic] ourselves from a tyranical [sic] Government who cares nothing about creating a sustainable future for our children.”

In the previous petitions, Texas has overtaken Louisiana in signatures and is just shy of the 25,000 needed to be seen by Barack Obama. Louisiana currently needs 11,550. They have 13,450. Texas currently has 18,103 and only need 6,897 signatures.

Among others petitioning are the following:

Arkansas
South Carolina
Georgia
Missouri
Tennessee
Colorado
New Jersey
Montana
Indiana
Mississippi
Kentucky
Florida
North Carolina
Alabama
North Dakota
Oregon
Michigan
New York

If you wish to sign these petitions, click on your state. If you start a new petition for a state not listed, please click "Contact" at the top of the page and send me the URL and I'll add it to the list.

At the end of the day, the petitions are merely an echo of how we use to think in this nation and that is our States are sovereign and that men use to view their State as their country. We no longer do that and as a result we get sucked into everything both good and bad from the federal government.

As I pointed out, what started out as two petitions has now grown to twenty. Additionally, Georgia, Missouri, and South Carolina have two competing petitions.

Sadly, the ever expanding government and overstepping of its constitutional bounds is what is driving this outcry from American citizens who are tired of bearing the burden for those that suck from the tit of government, from over regulation, for over taxation, from an abundance of debt being piled on by lawmakers and a president who are looking to be politically expedient rather than Constitutionally and fiscally sound. I suggest Washington D.C. wake up and listen to the people before they are faced with a rude awakening in our land.

If you are one that thinks secession is treasonous or un-American, I suggest you listen to a brief history on secession here.

    we get the Statue of Liberty, the Cascades, Yosemite, Disneyland and Hollywood. You get Opryland, Dollywood, the Smokies, Six Flags Over Texas and Branson. We agree to split the Grand Canyon (you get the south rim, we get the north). And while we're at it, we get Intel, Apple, Twitter and Google; you get Halliburton, Enron and Dell.

    We'll own most of the country's fresh water, 95 percent of the best wines, most of the cheese and natural gas and low-sulfur coal, all of the redwoods, most of the pine forests, the best beaches and stem cell research. We get the Ivy's, MIT, Stanford, the Seven Sisters. You will have Ole Miss and Bob Jones University. Of course, you also get nearly 100 percent of the tornadoes, most of the hurricanes, mosquitoes and the obese people Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and Dick Morris.

    For the first time ever, we'll get to keep 100 percent of our tax revenue. Since every Red State but Texas gets more Federal money than it pays in, the first time ever you'll get the satisfaction of paying for your own schools, hospitals, military bases, bridges, highways, dams and flood control. Our Federal budget will be balanced and will run a surplus the first year. You have mooched off us long enough so take your shotguns and pickup trucks teach your kids that the earth was created 6000 years ago, pray in school all you want and keep marrying your cousins but dont be coming back for handouts.

    The major flaw with this (and the thing all bloggers/reporters are glossing over) is that anyone, anywhere in the world can make an account and all it requires is an email address an any american ZIP code. Guaranteed after inspection 90% of people signing that will have nothing to do with the petition (either not in the state, not in America, spam accounts or signing to troll)

    I also notice that it's all the southern states that have these ridiculous petitions popping up. Religious fruitcakes acting out of upset that America isn't the fascist and authoritarian catholic haven it once was.

    Oh well. People want to leave the USA? I say let them, and make them follow all laws anyone international traveller has to abide by when trying to enter America. We'll see how far that goes.

    The states quote the Declaration of Independence, Benjamin Franklin, etc. Let me know when one quotes Revelation 18: 4: "Come out of her [Babylon]." Let me know when the spell is broken and God's people are ready to embrace His law.

    I have not been able to pull up the Ill. petition. I have look at all the others. I find it interesting that the Illinois petition is not there. Do you think Obama pulled it down personally ? After all he has anger management problems.

    JAIL OBAMA NOW! ! ! ! !

    They just want to bring back slavery. The redneck dream: a gun and the ability to use it on a darkie.

      Your full of BS

    Grow up people -- you lost. You're like little children who take their ball and run home because you're not mature enough to understand the democratic process. This issue was resolved in 1869 when the Supreme court ruled in a 5-to-3 decision in Texas v White that Texas did indeed have the right to bring suit and that individuals such as White had no claim to the bonds in question. The Court held however, that individual states could not unilaterally secede from the Union and that the acts of the insurgent Texas legislature--even if ratified by a majority of Texans--were "absolutely null." Even during the period of rebellion, however, the Court found that Texas continued to be a state. This is standard fare in Con Law and every law student reads this opinion. The doctrine of stare decisis stands firm. Unless and until the current Supreme court overturns this decision or congress takes action to negate the principle of law it is the law of the land, period.

    NC will have to have a Constitutional Convention first to deal with Article 1, Sec 4.

  • Paladin

    We all have been conned by the educational establishment, media, and government officials into believing secession is treasonist and unlawful. None of that is true. The U. S is made up of free independent soverign states which have the right to leave the union if they should deem it necessary. It is a safeguard against tyranny. For a real truthful and enlightened documentation about the right of secession, consider the book "One Nation, Indivisible? A Study of Secession and the Constitution " by Robert F. Hawes Jr. Another interesting study is Lincoln Uber Alles, Dictatorship Comes to America" by John Avery Emison.

    Given most (to all) of these petitions are being signed by people not living within the actual state (who also signed multiple petitions) their signature is therefore by and large completely invalid, making the petition itself invalid.

    If The republcan Congress did its job and implemented the checks and balances we wouldn't need petitions or have this enemy in the white house violating the constitution. Impreach this guy obama!

    All petitions should say we the people from the state of_____.

  • http://twitter.com/tesch_man Jeff Tesch

    Step 1- start petition
    Step 2- sign it
    Step3- get 25000 signatures to Obummer, for whatever reason.
    step 4- start petition in your own state to be put on ballot to be voted on.
    Step5-The voters approve, OR vote it up or down in the state legislatures, approves it
    Step6 - Governor signs that legislation and notifies the federal government that they peacefully request withdrawl from the union. And start the de federaling of all fed assets, either confiscate them , pay the feds for them, ship them out back to Washington DC,or any combo .
    Step7 - The feds will probably ignore it or file court action against that state( no more federal $ for anything, but they will demand our federal tax money)How the state responses will be critical.
    Step 8.9 10 11 .....etc,etc,etc Who the heck knows. War??? I hope not but ???
    If enough states seceed there won't be anything left to fight over.

  • ShellShell

    If you sign a petition do you need to live in that particular state? And can you sign multiple state secession petitions?
    I ask because I live in the once great state of California that basically has already seceded from the Union. We have a granola government and a fruitcake legislature. Did I mention "meatless" Mondays in L.A.? Yup. Crazy state.

    40 States Raise the Flag of Surrender! After spreading out the U.S. military with their attacks, bleeding America to bankruptcy and now dividing us politically: Hasn't Al Qaeda Won? If so, who were their enablers, which political party is Al Qaeda’s Most Valued Party (MVP)?
