Petitioners From All 50 States Want to Secede From the U.S.

If you can’t beat liberals, why not leave the country altogether? That’s the latest “bright” thinking from some disgruntled voters across the country.

Using the We The People online tool, over 100,000 people have signed petitions in all 50 states to secede from the Union. The safe assumption would be that these people were supporters of Mitt Romney. To me, this is a petty way of dealing with last Tuesday’s stunning defeat for Romney.

You know how old folks used to say,”Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!” That’s how I feel about the people who want to secede.

How do these people think they will get through natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy without federal assistance? States have had a lot of trouble balancing their own budgets. Now they feel fiscally strong enough to stand on their own? What about military protection, clean water and air, Medicare, and similar issues? It doesn’t seem like a well thought-out plan to me.

Governors in several states have dismissed the plan because they know the political lava any support could bring.

I sat through most of my twenties, my GOLDEN YEARS, with George W. Bush at the helm of this great nation. He took a pile driver to our global standing, budget, and fiscal surplus. Did you see states seceding from the union then? No. Why waste energy to have states leave now?

The reaction by conservatives to Obama’s win last week has been priceless to say the least. I have never seen a bigger group of sore losers in my life — people want to leave the Union, others were openly crying, and no one wants to blame the tired GOP policies.

Delusion is a powerful drug, y’all …………….

    The reason they want to choose now to leave the union is because it is written in law somewhere that a state can leave the union after a president gets a second term. Obama is in his 2nd term now so the states have that option. They are not doing it because he got in again. They are trying to leave because of the tyrannical laws and unlawful executive orders which have been passed in Bush's reign and Obama's. They have effectively made the constitution null and void between the two administrations. TSA, Patriot Act, NDAA, are just some. The executive orders are worse. One order allows any government agency to arrest anyone, and jail indefinitely all without a trial or evidence. Between the TSA fingering your daughter's private's in public and seeing military on the streets, the "union" has become a tyranny. The majority of the population have blinders on but if you open your eyes and look around you will see what is happening.
