    Secession petitions filed in 20 states

    In the wake of last week's presidential election, thousands of Americans have signed petitions seeking permission for their states to peacefully secede from the United States. The petitions were filed on We the People, a government website.
    States with citizens filing include Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. Oddly, folks from Georgia have filed twice. Even stranger, several of the petitions come from states that went for President Barack Obama.
    The petitions are short and to the point. For example, a petition from the Volunteer State reads: "Peacefully grant the State of Tennessee to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government." Of all the petitions, Texas has the most signatures so far, with more than 23,000.

    White House may respond to Texas secession:

    Even states that voted for Obama is filing a petition.....this country is divided beyond repair.....People in this country used to ask "what can I do for my country"...now it's "what can my country do for me" As long as they are getting theirs, they aren't concerned with how they get it or how it effects other's livelihood. I know not everyone is like this, but I consider it to be a growing epidemic. The idea of working hard for what you want out of life is falling by the wayside because you can sit back and let others do the work for you, while still reaping the benefits....so sad but true

    first of don't get it twisted.. it's not whole states doing that. It's individual citizens going on wethepeople.com and filing their petition and hoping to get enough signatures.

    Guarantee you that these people are unaware of the process to secede from the union. It could literally take 118 years to do so. Also they must not have fully understood the ramifications of doing so either.

    This is on national news I did not write or sign any petition .....I only saw it on yahoo and put it in this thread....so you have issue talk to the editor that write the story

    there we go again with that notion of "republicans are the only ones that own strong work ethic"

    smh... no one party can claim ownership of a strong work ethic... Lets think for ourselves and stop lettin cliche bullshit make our decisions

    ay ay.. why you getting so defensive? i wasn't coming for you at all. My "don't get it twisted" is not an attack on you.... it more like "now mind you...."

    when a petition is filed on wethepeople.com once it reached 25k signatures, a white house response is required.

    Carrying out the process takes years... then more work if a scession actually takes place.

    And yes I know it's on national news. I've been following it for 2 days since some dude in Slidell Louisiana was the first one to file.

    Why you getting so touchy anyways?

    If Romney was president I woulda sign a petition too. The country is very divided thanks to Fox News and others.
