Haha, this isn't happening. Signatures may be taken, the white house may have to respond, still doesn't mean they will be given the option. X,D

Agreed with Cajun and Coyote are saying.

Houstonian here. Nary a whisper of secession around me.

Admittedly, Texas cities tend to go Democrat (or, at least, more so than rural areas in the state). Even in 'Big Oil' Harris County (Houston), Obama garnered slightly more votes than Romney.

@AJ: "Anyone who thinks this is a call for ACTUAL secession is a bit vapid."

I have no idea what that means. I'm sure the people signing these petitions recognize the futility of it, but I can only assume - in the absence of other information - that every one of these people agrees with the wording of the petition. Otherwise, why would they sign?

Regardless, it may not be a feasible petition, but it's certainly an 'actual' one. At some point (I've heard >25k sig's), the White House/POTUS will actually have to respond - officially - to these petitions.

I live in Austin, TX and no one here is talking at all about seceding. This is just the work of a few far right wing nut jobs that are butt hurt about the election. Texas will not secede over something as silly as 4 more years of a democratic president. This petition has 60,000 signatures. Out of a population of about 25,675,000 people in Texas. Thats about 0.2% of the states population that care about this. Its not a real problem and will not be taken seriously. Lets stop giving attention to these people.

More like trying to wake Washington up. Voter fraud. Disagreement over policy. Etc. Our representatives won't represent us, so we have to do it ourselves.

To be clear: The title to this post (and related posts around the web) are not correct. It is not the case that 30 states are now trying to secede; it IS the case that citizen-led petitions relating to the secession of dozens of states have been posted to the White House's petition site.

The likelihood of Obama (or any President) granting a right of secession is... I'll go out on a limb here... exactly zero.

On a side note, I did a brief analysis of the Texas secession petition. I took the last 500 signatures (as per the website at the time -- signatures #s 78,308 to 78,807). Of these...

- 296 are explicitly from Texas
- 79 have no recorded city and state

... leaving 125 from outside the state. That's 25%. I don't know why these people are petitioning for Texas to leave the state, but I wonder if their signatures are valid for a petition of this nature. Anyone know?

lol. Ok, they can secede, but they must develop their own currency, passports, licenses, and military. Not to mention the loss of any double taxation avoidance treaties with other countries, as well as any other treaties. Yeah, keep thinking secession is a good idea. *rolls eyes*

This is what you get when you overly use wartime terminolgy and phrases in elections.

Now you have a bunch of dbags who think since they lost they need to take it to another level. And would more than likely war with other Americans just to have another White man as president rather than a black one.

What's funny about this is that many of the states that supposedly "applied for secession" are blue states. (California, New Jersey, New York, Nevada, Delaware, Oregon, Michigan) This is just some of the tin-foil hat wearing right-wing f*cktards who got some of their equally crazy friends to sign a petition and sent it to Washington.

lol

PEOPLE in 30 states have started petitions to secede, not 30 STATES. lmfao.

Christ you people who dissent really take yourselves seriously don't you? If all it took was some racist aholes to sign a piece of paper for a secession to work...dontcha think the South would have tried that say....almost 200 years ago?

You are being ruled by PotUS who is black. Effing deal with it you small narrow minded effs.

Let 'em go. I'm not sure who's going to pay for everything while they're busy giving all their money to the rich.

They don't have to be a part of America if they so choose, the rest of us then choose to pack 'em up and ship them out of our country- kinda offsets all the criminals who trespassed our borders and set up shop here.
