Want to Secede from the US? You May Get Your Wish. Sort of.
To counter the petitions for secession since Obama was voted back in office, a white house “petition gathering force” has released this petition:
“Mr. President, please sign an executive order such that each American citizen who signed a petition from any state to secede from the USA shall have their citizenship stripped and be peacefully deported,”
They only need twenty three thousand more signatures for it to be addressed by the White House. This second term is starting off wonderfully.

I wouldn't get too bent out of shape from these petitions. If they only have 22,795 signatures, that means that 1 out of every 13,599 people in the U.S. signed this petition. It's the same for both sides- very very small numbers.
For the record, I recant my previous statement about supporting Texas' succession. *jokes, just jokes!*
I say let Texas leave only if they take Mississipi and Alabama with them. We'll relocate Austin and Rorschach.

Too patriotic for this country.
So patriotic it hurts."

I signed a petition to secede not because I hate Obama, but because I hate the federal government. Its out of control and there are no options on the table to fix it. This is a peaceful way to voice my discontent directly to the white house.
The people that are against Obama. where does one deport a upper class middle aged white person too? Peacful or not.
So the Obamateur wants to deport people born here but still refuses to deport people who are here illegally. Why am I not surprised? 100 years from now people will read about the early 2000s and ask what went wrong
The only thing worse than a sore loser, is a sore winner. Hey dick bags you won, now get on with it!!
As a natural born citizen with Dual Citizenship (I know where I'm from unlike others) I have options...
“Mr. President, please sign an executive order such that _____________ from the USA shall have ________________."
@jerkaruso Agreed...one side overreacts and the other acts just as stupid...no wonder we can't get anything done in this country.
I support this. Va Tech football would move way up the rankings. Maybe crack the top 100.
Cayman Islands. That's where all their money is already!?
@vegascable Guantonamo Bay.
Well no, he hasn't said or advocated that. People have put for a petition that they hope he signs that would do that.
Well the thing is that many states wouldn't support mass deportations of millions of people, even if the Federal government wanted to... plus it is imposible. ...So the solution is to close the border as well as work towards identifying people. They don't have to be citizens in terms of voting, but a plan should be put in place.
@Cletus from Brooklyn izzyhell???
Yup. No one to blame now when things get even worse
@alexofarmies dissent is the highest form of patriotism
