It’s either the political theater equivalent of a hissy fit or the start of more than a dozen new countries: Citizens in 15 states have filed petitions to secede from the United States after Tuesday’s election. These include Louisiana (which led the charge), the Republic of Texas, Kentucky, Colorado, New Jersey, Montana, North Dakota, Indiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Oregon. And somewhat hilariously, someone in North Dakota filed a petition requesting New York secede, which seems pretty rude, given they are sort of handling a major natural disaster right now. Although this is largely seen as symbolic, the filers in each state still have a month to gather 25,000 signatures to have their peaceful withdrawal from the U.S.A. considered by the president. Good luck with that.

Note. Of course where I got this made fun of it. Can you guess where it was posted? http://now.msn.com/15-states-start-petitons-t...

But it just shows the the real American conservative are fed up.

Just like the racist confederates did 150 years ago. Obama is a Lincoln for our time.

Obama will go down in history as one of the greatest presidents of all time. Hard to believe civil rights are still an issue.

Just count me as true blue for the Union. Will the Rebs be red and gray?

I just hope I can face the war with as much courage as the first Unionist.

Which union, auto, electrical, teamsters? True blue, is that the Republicans? While I have never seen a president that brings out such differing opinions, that even garnered 100 to 108% of the vote in some areas as I understand. Civil war, secession, is not the answer. Man you really have to be good to get 108%, I never got over 100%.

I just want to face death with courage for my country, the Union of the USA.

It would be GREAT!

Our very own country consisting of Tea Party patriots! Rape would be considered just an ordinary act of courtship. Abortion would be outlawed and punishable by death. Incest would just be looked upon casually as among a litany of our new and cherished family values. And marriage between brother and sister would be completely legal!!

We can bring back the Stars and Bars and let er fly again with pride!!

I say bring on the secession!!

I guess that is better than being left. Have you considered jumping into traffic on 465? Probably quicker then being gut shot. Oh my mistake, facing death for your country, bravely, going to Afganistan?

The only people signing this petition are the ignorant and inbred losers.

If they were to secede,their country would be the first in line looking for aid from the U.S.

These states have already established themselves as the biggest moochers among the U.S. states.

For all of their talk of family values and rugged individualism,they're the biggest moochers and have the highest divorce rates.

I'm with DavidM and Russia1513. We need an America where the white-man is number one again. White men are being beat down,held back and mocked.

The self esteem of the white-man is in terrible shape at the moment. This is so sad.

Family values no longer exist. A white-man can longer go to Broad Ripple clubs and seek a one night stand without being mocked and ridiculed.

What has happened to America?

Bring back slavery!

Bring back stern christian tenets!

Real Americans need a place they can be themselves.

A country where women know their place is in the home.

A country of pure white people!

A place where time never progresses and new ideas never develop!!

Bring on the secession!!
