If at first you don’t secede…
On Nov.7, the day after President Barack Obama was re-elected, the White Houseâ€™s website receivedÂ a petitionÂ asking the administration to allow Louisiana to secede.
IfÂ 25,000 people sign the petition by Dec. 7, it will â€œrequire a responseâ€ from the Obama administration, according to published rules ofÂ the White Houseâ€™s onlineÂ â€œWe the Peopleâ€Â program.
The Louisiana petition has collected more than 12,300 signatures in four days.Â A separate effort from Texas has 15,400 supporters.
Similar petitions from 18 other states began arriving Nov. 9, bringing the total â€” for the moment â€” to 20.
[…]Â What began as a pair of parallel stunts appears to have gathered steam. Other thanÂ LouisianaÂ and Texas, states with secession-related petitions pending on the White House website now includeÂ Alabama,Â Arkansas,Â Colorado,Â Florida,Â Georgia,Â Indiana,Â Kentucky,Â Michigan,Â Mississippi,Â Missouri,Â Montana,Â New Jersey,Â New York,Â North Carolina,Â North Dakota,Oregon,Â South CarolinaÂ andÂ 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. Â 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.
