21st Century Wire says…
After this week’s flood of petitions from multiple states to leave the Union, thing might actually be getting nasty in the corporation of Washington DC.
Whatever happened to: “American States reserve the right to…” ?
America needs to embrace this debate – not shut it down. People are not happy. Will Washington DC customer complaints department actually listen to its slaves, or simply slam the phone down?
But WRH’s Mike Rivero told 21st Century Wire the obvious oxymoron about this latest effort below:
“The whole point is that everyone who signed a secession petition does not WANT to be a citizen any more!”
Well said Mike.
“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,” the full petition reads.
The title of the petition is:
‘WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them.’
As of this writing, 2,205 have signed the petition; 22,795 more signatures are needed for the issue to be addressed by the White House.
The Washington Times reports on the numerous petitions to secede on the White House’s website:
It’s traditional for Americans to threaten to move to France or Canada when their candidate loses, but this year some disappointed voters are implementing a different plan.
In the wake of the Nov. 6 election, petitions seeking to secede from the union have been filed on behalf of 23 states on the White House website, https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petitions.
Most of the petitions contain the same wording and ask to withdraw “peacefully” from the United States in order to form independent governments.
