Secede Petitions Cover All 50 States, Over 660K Signatures

To answer the question right up front, no, this is most likely not a serious movement to secede. Certainly not in deep blue states like Brokeifornia (10,036 at time of writing), NY (12,806), and Massachusetts (107), among others. Most of the petitions are carbon copies of all the others. Heck, it took 5 minutes for me to create the Alaska one, and only because I forgot my login password and had to reset it. No, this is mostly people showing that this is still a Democratic Republic, and want the Obama admin to understand that the minority and their opinions matter, that Obama shouldn’t ramrod his agenda down the throats of America

(Daily Caller) 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 midnight Tuesday, more than 660,000 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.

Remember back to 2004 when President Bush won and John Kerry lost, liberals were advocating secession of Blue states, along with referring to Red states as “flyover” states, flying the American flag upside down, and calling the Red states “dumbf*ckistan“.

“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.

But, apparently the American Right isn’t allowed to voice their concerns in the “progressive” United States.

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)

Progressives (read “fascists”) hate when people other than themselves are accorded First Amendment Rights.

Certainly, some are serious. Others are blowing off steam. Most surely are tired of the massive Central Government trying to dictate everything from the fever swamps of Washington, D.C.

John’s an idiot.
Always the left loves to pin it on the right. Always they are misguided at best.

Merriam Webster:

often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition

That co-defines Obama’s world and the far left’s dream. And is NOTHING like the right and its conservative values. Zero in common.

john,
You have to understand what conservative and liberal and right and left mean in Europe. You clearly don’t. In Europe, the fascist were what we would term the left. They were for socialism and total government control. Those on the left, were for a more liberatarian approach. This is similar to what is happening here. The Right, when it decides to get out of social issue, will morphy into a liberaterian party. The left will continue will constant government control and fascism.

and calling the Red states “dumbf*ckistan“

Yeah, and whiny secession petitions because you lost an election are sure changing people’s minds!

Hey, William, when you cited the Pledge of Allegiance and get to the “indivisible” part, do you cross your fingers and hope no one knows that you’re election away from committing treason?

PS The idea that you can express your “free speech” with talk of insurrection and that talk cannot be met with talk of kicking you out of the country you don’t want to be a part of means the latter is “fascism” might be the dumbest thing you ever wrote.

Shorter Bill: Don’t threaten to kick me out of the country I just volunteered to leave.”

Timburns, you folks on the left had no problem doing similar when Bush won in 2004.

Oh, and the Pledge is not a founding document enshrined into law.

A fast note on referring to leftist / progressives as fascists versus communists. It doesn’t really matter. Both terms refer to an extremely intolerant, violent and oppressive totalitarian form of political system. Uber feminists and environmentalists, animal rights pukes, global warming alarmists, etc. all fit this description. They are all advocates for death, destruction and conflict. Call them fascists or commies as you like. I would only note that even though both systems in political terms pretty much meet each other at the polar extremes, there are historical differences in their practical effects. Fascists, for example, tend not to destroy industry. The commies on the other hand, have absolutely no clue how to even grow food. I use the recent historical examples of the Soviet Union, China, North Korea, Cuba and Venezuela as the most excellent examples of commie incompetence. They are incompetent at everything but death. Fascist states, on the other hand, I use Nazi Germany here, embrace industry and the accumulation of wealth. Some funny stories there about how the Speer Armaments Organization and Himmler’s SS would steal each others trainloads of slaves to use in their respective industrial camps. Well, it’s funny in a way.

BTW, this country is falling very quickly into the deep dark hole of communistic death under the banner of entitlements for all. Which means everyone starves. Cheers.

William, good to oath is unimportant unless it deals with a “Founding document.”

THe other part of your comment is a delusional, ahistorical falsehood. On case you haven’t noticed by the mocking you receive, liberals mocked you. Outside of Vermont, there were no petitions for secession. Geez, you’re kind of a two wrongs make a right kind of guy, no?

I guess you were sleeping through the Bush years. And missed all the calls to secede. The Dumb*ckistan crap. Etc. You moonbats had no problem with calling for splitting the country back then, so don’t play this little game and try and spin it around.
