Nope! It's a goverenment web site 30 states now have patitions to secede from the union.

The White House a year ago started a “We the People” program at www.whitehouse.gov which allows citizens to create and sign petitions. When/if a petition reaches 25,000 signatures, the President is required to address it. Reaching 25,000 signatures does not mean the petition will succeed, but it does mean the President will have to address it and say Yay or Nay, and give reasons.

I've heard about it. Texas is the closest I think. I just can't believe someone would actually want to seperate themselves from the United States.

What reasons do you have? Please don't just say because Obama got re-elected...

Buncha sore loser crybabies... usually these are the same people who tell me how much more patriotic they are than me...but when they don't get their way, start shrieking about secession. To them I say, "GO! GO NOW! Maybe Rush will take you with him to Costa Rica."

Article 1, Section 4 of the North Carolina Constitution addresses North Carolina's stance on sucession.

"This state shall ever remain a member of the American Union; The people thereof are part of the American Nation; there is no right on the part of this state to secede; and all attempts, from whatever source or upon whatever pretext, to dissolve this union or to sever this Nation, shall be resisten by the whole power of the state."

I wish it were a joke but it is not, they're truly some stupid idiots in this country that would propose succession over the election of a certain person. These people may think they are doing this in the same spirit of the old Confederacy, it was touched off by the election of Lincoln but these people have nothing in common with that cause and that cause had been boiling for several decades plus it had legitimate roots in the inequality of representation.

These are cry baby fools that are simply trying to be symbolic and cause the White House grief. They are trying to force Obama's hand in the matter in the hopes they can make his second term miserable.

I think they are treasones and should be treated as such. If any state officially supports the cause then it should be sanctioned and have all federal money removed plus have it's assets frozen, just like we would do any other country like Iran. If that doesn't work send in the troops and occupy the state.

I for one have no problem taking up arms against my neighbors to defend the union against these traitors. I say this even having had many family members die for the old Confederacy. I have served my country and I will continue to defend it at all costs.

I would like to see Texas to be allowed to leave the Union just as a joke. I estimate it would be less than six months before it's economy collapsed and it is invaded by Mexico LMAO... go for it morons.

Oil is not enough to sustain Texas unless Texas could trade freely with other nations. I imagine there would be an embargo against Texas by the U.S. and it's allies. Even if the enemies of the U.S. bought oil from Texas it wouldn't be enough as Texas would have to import thousands of other every day items like food stuffs that cant be grown in Texas.

There again is the little matter of the country to the south called Mexico that would more than likely love to reclaim it's former land and it's oil. I suppose Texas would have to hurry and spend billions (billions it cant afford) to raise an army with modern equipment just to defend itself from threats abroad now that it doesn't have the U.S. Military to protect it.

My way of life and the future of my children is being threatened that’s enough reason!

As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776:

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

"...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government..."

I say start practicing now. Give up your Social Security, Medicare, Disability. Don't drive on roads that federal money helped to create. You get the picture.

In reality, it is a few nuts making a fuss. I wish we could create a place for all of you where your ideal country exists. Based on your criteria, Somalia sounds good.

I've been ashamed of this country for the past 30 years. More and more government intervention, abortion on demand, gay rights, taking GOD out of schools not allowing prayer, teaching evolution as fact…..etc. It’s been going downhill for quite a while.
