loveblondieo: Not that it's going to happen, but I wonder what would happen to those of us who were born in those states but no longer live in them.
randomjsa: They'll come back when the moderate Democrats do.
kg2095: YouAreItNoTagBacks: LinkFeeling a little snarky today.Classic.I hope you get a shiatload more signatures than the radicals. I would sign it myself if I was an American.
sparkeyjames: Wow just look at all that patriotism pouring out of them.
js34603: 404 page not found: js34603: bulldg4life: js34603: Before the Well Byes and the air of superiority becomes too overwhelming in here, maybe take a look at the article and realize its random crackpots in these states trying to petition for this on the same Obama site that has featured other such winning petitions as releasing the truth about UFOs and the disclosure of the White House beer recipe.In other words, crazies gonna crazy. Stop cheering for states to leave the country, it makes you look just as bad as them.Laughing at idiots that cry about secession cause Obama won is not remotely the same as crying about secession because Obama won.I swear, this week has produced the most idiotic "bot sides are bad" comments in the history of ever.Yeah cheering for states to leave the country? That's not both sides are bad, that's both sides are stupid. If you think your state should leave the union, you're an idiot. If you actually think it would be a good thing for states to leave the union, you're an idiot, too.Laughing at idiots =/= cheering states to leave the country.Reading is hard :(Must be since the headline writer failed at it and is pretending the "states" filed for secession instead of random nutjobs starting a petition.Seems to be hard for you too since you've missed all the people saying "we'll bye" and "do it" based on the stupid headline, and think you're all just having a good laugh at idiots.
LincolnLogolas: I was watching this unfold on WND. Apparently, the crazies actually believe this will actually accomplish something more than providing some comedy."Oh oh, let's sign this non-binding e-petition so that we can support a cause without actually doing or risking anything!"Well, I was watching until they banninated me from posting. Too lazy to create another account to continue bugging them.
Dr. Whoof: It would be bad, yes, but over quickly and maybe some of the idiots would finally learn that they live in a very sheltered little bubble that in no way reflects the real world. They clearly won't learn any other way.
HeartBurnKid: [content.ytmnd.com image 426x320]15 states? Wow... looks like we're gonna need some more Ass Cream.
Smackledorfer: Laura Pank,"And I think that you are one of those retards that think the welfare state and doing nothing is the answer. I think that you are a disillusioned idiot if you think that things are going to get better from here. OPEN YOUR EYES to the TYRANNY from BOTH PARTIES, OPEN YOUR EYES to Agenda 21. And then, OPEN YOUR EYES and look at the history books and you will see that if we continue on the same path that we will be America "aka China #2" in a few more yests"Study it out!I'd like to believe comments like these aren't sincere. I really would.
Jim_Callahan: These citizen generated petitions were filed just days after the 2012 Presidential election.Has anyone else noticed that almost every single one of these "x state wants to succeed" is a couple random jackoffs that have no power or elected office in the state, usually on the political equivalent of an anonymized internet message board? aka trolls?What is it with the big media conglomerates and feeding the trolls?//The only time it was actual news was when Rick Perry settled it, and he backpedaled so hard that a video of the event fell through time and was used in Superman II.
Generation_D: I think what this says is those of us who have been waiting for a calm, rational, centrist/right Republican party to come back and join the table have been sorely mistaken. The Tea Party / Racist / Separatist Right is here to stay, and they won't quit til they get their way, which is their own country run by American Taliban.And I'd be fine with giving it to them, but the problem is then they would declare war on us probably the next minute.
pacified: don't let the door hit yawhere the good lord split ya.
ThatGuyFromTheInternet: vpb: OtherLittleGuy: Bad time, guys. All those troops from Iraq and Afghanistan are coming home. Even in 15 states, putting down a Second Rebellion should be no trouble.I think they believe that 99% of the military is good'ol boys who would be on their side.A) Cite your figure, please.B) They'd all choose to betray their loyalty to 'Murika?
bootman: FartBong0 should just have DEVGRU drop in and arrest and detain a handful of folks advocating secession. Then just let them go after video of them pissing themselves and crying like little girls appears on the evening news. Hold a press conf with pics of crying, wet crotched secession advocates over his shoulder and apologize, saying that he thought it as a actual threat to the union, but it turned out that they were just talking out of their asses.
Nemosomen: Not everyone voting for secession is racist. I signed the petition to get rid of Mississippi and Florida. I think it's a sign of patriotism.
kg2095: After starting as a British prison It was actually formed by mass immigration just like the USA. Luckily for Australia relatively few of the immigrants were overly religious.
TV's Vinnie: More like cranky hillbillies in 15 states want to waste the taxpayer's time & money because Rmoney's defeat gave them epic amounts of butthurt, and drama-queens gotta drama-queen.
Gyrfalcon: However, anyone wanting to force the issue should recall what happened in Los Angeles during the riots, when the Marines were deployed to keep order. They kept order, all right; and when some fool decided the Marines would never fire on US citizens and decided to crash a roadblock, they shot him dead.
FormlessOne: Did anyone cover the fact that it's a collection of disgruntled morons, and not the state governments themselves, signing these petitions, and that these petitions are utterly pointless except as a possible way for media outlets to feed on the last crumbs at the "Obama kicked Romney's ass" table?Yes? Ah, well, then. Keep at it.
HST's Dead Carcass: It should also be noted: Everyone signing this is committing treason against The United States Of America. Enjoy your prison time, secessionists.
abb3w: PreMortem: So its up to the Executive branch to grant secession now?News to me.Yeah. The most the President can do is recommend the necessary constitutional Amendment to congress... but, that recommendation is indeed within his power.If they agree to a short period (say, 12 years) for people who do/don't want to leave the US to sort themselves out across the new borders, to assume a per-capita share of the US national debt (in exchange for a per-capita share of the Social Security Trust), leaving the Mississippi river open to trade, I think the departure of the South could be peacefully negotiated.Taking em back? More expensive.
HST's Dead Carcass: Once they all leave, they'll have to pick a new name, Th USA is taken.
DemonEater: HST's Dead Carcass: Once they all leave, they'll have to pick a new name, Th USA is taken.That part's EASY.The Confederate States of America. You know they'll do it.
