White House Inundated With Secession Petitions

If you’ll remember, Team Obama created a website, using White House resources and it’s URL, as a “new way to petition the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country.” They “created We the People because we want to hear from you. If a petition gets enough support, White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.” In actuality, it seems to be more of a way to to scrape email addresses and names to soft pedal how super duper great Team Obama is and send subtly veiled campaign messages. There have been some interesting ones, quite a few having to do with far left issues, such as making marijuana legal (these crop up a lot, then disappear down the memory hole), and, oh, here’s a fun one

The petition mentions Jesus, Moses, and Mohammed, but, we all know it’s about protecting Islam.

So, are there other fun petitions? Why, yes there are, thank you for asking!

(Daily Caller) How would Old Glory look with 30 stars instead of 50? As far-fetched as it may sound, the White House might soon be forced by its own rules to examine the question.

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.

“Michael E” from the New Orleans suburb of Slidell penned the initial proposal — the website doesn’t provide last names — in which he asked the Obama administration to “[p]eacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.”

His entire petition consisted of excerpts from the Declaration of Independence.

Micah H from Texas also created a petition for Texas to secede. Oh, and

…states with secession-related petitions pending on the White House website now include Alabama, ArkansasColorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina and Tennessee.

Three states – Georgia, Missouri and South Carolina are each represented by two competing petitions.

Most of the petitions simply copy much of Louisiana’s petition. It will be interesting to see if any get the required 25K signatures which would lead to an administration response, which would be interesting, as well. Most previous responses tend to say “look at what we’ve proposed, we told Someone Else to handle it, then ran off to campaign, vacation, and play golf.”

umm… no. it doesn’t.

Yeah, following rules, especially their own, has never been a strong point for Obama and his lackeys. But, leave it to the media to carry his water despite all the glaring falsehoods.

Wait.. Oklahoma is not on there?

lol barb

Unfortunately, with federalism and the very armored IRS, no matter where the tax-paying workers are, their tax dollars will continue to be used to be given freely to the non-workers.

At least until the real cessation happens.

Ha-Ha-Ha!!! Gaylib, you’re so funny! What’s it like having all that intense hatred balled-up inside you? The level of intolerance you display is a fantastic example of the sorry-assed, ignorant, group of social reprobates you and your ilk truly are representative of. Oh, and when the feces hits the fan and you realize that all you are doing is subscribing to the mantra of a divisive political ideology and that you are obviously incapable of having an original thought… feel free to come crawling back from that third-world cesspool of a utopia you and the rest of the ideologically ill-informed have created …we’ll take you in, because that is what being an American is all about.
BTW… America, I did and still do help build that… everyday.

Look at the racist antisemitic socialist troll trying to proclaim patriotism to America and its ideals. How oxymoronic.

It’s hilarious when Socialists and Dictator lovers try to tell Americans that in order to MAINTAIN America, that it is we that must leave.

Well guys, as a firm Christian believer, I would like to say: “Welcome to your hell. Enjoy your time. While you have it.”
