I checked this out, it's really happening, many states including AR are trying to petition not being affiliated under the American government, they want to have their own government.

This is all actually part of the declaration of independence, they they can really separate from the government peacefully, several states have over half the signatures they needed with in 4 hours!

Look it up on the drudge report.

Just to be clear- half the signatures needed for the Federal Government to acknowledge it. They can shoot it down or address it. Seceding takes a lot more than a petition of 25,000 signatures within a month (the deadline for the Feds to recognise the petition.) The last time is successfully done ended in a civil war. I doubt any of this will happen... But who knows. I feel like people have gotten way more irrational since the 1800s.

I doubt the U.S. government is just going to release a few states. It wouldn't matter to them if every man, woman, and child there wanted it to happen. They would send troops to prevent it. If the states in question were no longer under U.S. authority, it would be cash out of their pockets.

Why don't we simply declare our independence rather than asking for permission?

Do you think we would ever have broken from England if we waited for King George to say it was okay?

To be honest to me this is not a racist thing. I have black friends who agree that the way our country is bein run is so wrong. And this country was made based on our indevidual beliefs and the our rights to speak them. Things have gotten out of hand and there needs to be change. And when I say change, I mean we need to go back to the roots of America and what it use to truly stand for. As for the statement made that if ur white u don't belong, well I feel that remark was true but also made outta anger just like most made these days.Because to me, we all came from one place.We all bleed red dammit. This is our problem. Lack of love for our neighbor and lots of greed. May we all be forgiven for what we have and have yet to do. Things don't look good for the near future..

Expand on that, what do you mean by " we need to go back to the roots of America and what it use to truly stand for"?
