Secession Petitions Flood White House “We The People” Website After President Obama’s Reelection. [Confederate states in red] (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
To all those people who flooded the Obama administration’s “We the People” website with their secessionist petitions, here’s a thought? Why don’t you leave the United States for another country? Renounce your citizenship. It’s just that simple. While none of the petitions  explicitly cite President Obama’s reelection last week, but it’s pretty ironic that they have hit a fever pitch since the general elections.

“The citizens of the US suffer from blatant abuses of their rights such as the [National Defense Authorization Act], the [Transportation Security Administration], etc,” the Texas petition charges. “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.”


As of Monday, residents of Kentucky, Oregon, Montana, North Dakota, Mississippi, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Arkansas, South Carolina, and Missouri have all expressed interest in dissolving their relationship with the United States. Source

Peter Morrison, who serves as treasurer of the Hardin County Republican Party called people who voted for President Obama “maggots.” Wow, Mr. Morrison, try to stay classy. I thought people had the right to choose which candidate they will support in any election. Excuse me for voting for President Obama, considering I don’t get those hand-outs from the government he and his other nutty right wing buddies maintain about the president’s supporters. This is just another crazy diversion by a bunch of crybabies. I didn’t realize we went backwards to 1860 when blacks were treated like sh*t and white man’s word was gospel truth. The right wingers are grasping straws and it’s quite comical to watch they sink lower and lower into the racist muck that will only work against them.

    If you were to stack rank the KEY ISSUES facing Black People and the LIKELIHOOD that many of the points that you focus on ACTUALLY HAPPENING – is any of this likely to bring your credibility back as a journalist as you recommit yourself to the MUCKRAKING that will actually deliver upon the promise to Black America – even after so many “valuables” have been deposited?

    Vermont has had a secession movement for many years.
    AT LEAST you should give them credit that any such nation would have to be responsible for their own “Social Justice”.

    When Afro-Centrists went “back” to Africa and then burned their American passport in a ceremony – is this in line with the resistance movement that you infer is “racist” today?
