Secession proposed in fifteen states following Obama's victory
As of Saturday November 10, 2012, 15 States have
petitioned the Obama Administration for withdrawal from
the United States of America in order to create its own
States following this action include: Louisiana , Texas,
Montana, North Dakota, Indiana, Mississippi, Kentucky,
North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey,
Colorado, Oregon and New York. These States have
requested that the Obama Administration grant a peaceful
withdrawal from the United States.
These citizen generated petitions were filed just days after
the 2012 Presidential election.
Louisiana was the first State to file a petition a day after the
election by a Michael E. from Slidell, Louisiana. Texas was
the next State to follow by a Micah H. from Arlington,
The government allows one month from the day the
petition is submitted to obtain 25,000 signatures in order
for the Obama administration to consider the request.
The Texas petition reads as follows:
The US continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming
from the federal government’s neglect to reform domestic
and foreign spending. The citizens of the US suffer from
blatant abuses of their rights such as the NDAA, the TSA,
etc. Given that the state of Texas maintains a balanced
budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world, it is
practically feasible for Texas to withdraw from the union,
and to do so would protect it’s citizens’ standard of living
and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with
the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers which
are no longer being reflected by the federal government.
