White House Forced to Confront State Petitions to Secede?
Tuesday, November 13, 2012
The White House website has been bombarded with petitions that have mushroomed to 31 states moving to secede. The first petition came in from Louisiana the day after Obama’s re-election, and since then a chorus of others have issued their grievances.
Now, under White House rules stated in its “We the People” program, if 25,000 people sign on by December 7th, a response must be issued. Just a few days after submitting, that number has been reached by the petitions from Texas and Louisiana — with Texas at well over 60,000.
The following states are close behind:
South Carolina, 13,888
Tennessee, 17, 356
North Carolina, 16,794 (Source)
