Now What? White House ‘Secede’ Petitions Reach 660,000 Signatures, 50-State Participation

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.


Petitions from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas residents have accrued at least 25,000 signatures, the number the Obama administration says it will reward with a staff review of online proposals.

The Texas petition leads all others by a wide margin. Shortly before midnight Tuesday, it had attracted more than 92,400 signatures. But a spokesperson for Gov. Rick Perry said Tuesday afternoon that he does not support the idea of his state striking out on its own.

    Well here we have it, 50-States within this USSA that have had ENOUGH of our current Dictator’s Commie ‘Transformation’ Crappola. But we can forget about getting those “Last 7-States of his”.. Those are completely In His Pocket.

    Has this ever happened before? Just what does this say about Washington and the man in the Whitehouse?

  • Has anyone been watching the petitions on the whitehouse website?
    At least 1/3 of the votes on the petition for Texas to secede have been removed over the past month, signifcantly reducing the impact of the votes; also the numbers for North Carolina hae been reduced as well.
    The Obama administration is playing with the numbers.
