#1 Don't worry liberals, you will get your own reservation, AKA the District of Columbia and daily rations. How is that for turning the tables.

#2 All of the secede folks should move to Texas. Together they might have enough numbers for it to mean something.

#3 Or Hawaii which already has a small secede group.

#4 "A backlash Monday night saw requests filed with the White House to strip citizenship rights from Americans who signed petitions to help states secede."
--even better! Free healthcare and I can still vote in U.S. Elections! (sarc/off)

#5 Seems like we have become tribalized already thanks to the ONE and the donk party pushing division, strife, and class warfare. Secession on the part of the States would just formalize all this.

#6 Even though these are just citizen petitions to secede, isn't a call from all 50 states for secession a rebuke of the fedgov?

By people who can't read the Constitution [or care - so throw in SCOTUS on that too].
1st Amendment Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

#8 The first amendment has suffered of late.

#9 I thought there were 57 states (sarc).

#10 "57 States" > FYI #9, I'd asked a few associates during dinner time at McDonald's iff anyone on Guam had called or started a similar petition of secession to send to the Bammer WH - so far nobody knew iff one was begun, or by whom.

#11 IMO it would take a "perfect storm" of so-called "fiscal cliffs", protractive bad economy + unemployment, ethnic, + major foreign policy failures or military defeats [e.g. Rising Iran + Rising China] for any secession movement to become empowered.
WASHINGTON POLS PROMISE LOCALISM + NATIONALISM, WHILE COVERTLY UNDERMINING SAME FOR GLOBALISM, I.E. "THANK YOU, AMERICA = AMERIKKA, FOR SUPPORTING OWG + GLOBAL FEDERAL UNION [NAU] WIDOUT HAVING TO VOTE ON IT, OR HAVING TO ASK OR EXPLAIN IT TO YOU".
You know, "REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY" AKA "SHEEPLE-ISM".
