20 States files petitions to secede from the United States

If at first you don’t secede…

David Martosko reports at the Daily Caller:

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.

The Louisiana petition has collected more than 12,300 signatures in four days. A separate effort from Texas has 15,400 supporters.

Similar petitions from 18 other states began arriving Nov. 9, bringing the total — for the moment — to 20.

[…] What began as a pair of parallel stunts appears to have gathered steam. Other than Louisiana and Texas, states with secession-related petitions pending on the White House website now include Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota,Oregon, South Carolina and Tennessee.

I noticed Oregon made the list, but we’re so controlled by socialists here that we’d end up as another communist dictatorship if we seceded.

I doubt it will go anywhere.   They have a better shot at nullification than secession.

Even so, if the feds try to confiscate guns within these states, they could end up with an armed revolt on their hands.
