As of 12:46 am, Sunday, signatures obtained by Louisiana 7,358; Texas 3,771; Florida 636; Georgia 475; Alabama 834; North Carolina 792; Kentucky 467; Mississippi 475; Indiana 449; North Dakota 162; Montana 440; Colorado 324; Oregon 328; New Jersey 301 and New York 169. Many more States are expected to follow.


This is the website for the petitions (via Sally_Oh)

The Texas petition reads as follows:

The US continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the federal government’s neglect to reform domestic and foreign spending. The citizens of the US suffer from blatant abuses of their rights such as the NDAA, the TSA, etc. Given that the state of Texas maintains a balanced budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world, it is practically feasible for Texas to withdraw from the union, and to do so would protect it’s citizens’ standard of living and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers which are no longer being reflected by the federal government.

Some numbers
If we could get millions of people on these petitions - THAT WOULD send out a message loud and clear.

Even better get more signatures on these petitions than voted for Obama.
A tough ask.

However approximately :-

90+ million people didn't vote.
63 million voted for Obama.
60 million voted AGAINST him.

Turn it into a referendum on whether Americans really want Obama and his policies, or this Federal government, or something else.
Let's have a PROPER DEBATE about how this country should be run.
There wasn't one in the election - both the candidates had near enough the same policies.

A very substantial number of people that voted for Obama, didn't actually want him and would prefer something else.
I bet more than half.

Potential signatories who probably agree with the motion/referendum 180 million.
Your job is to go out and help get 65 million of them to sign.
Are you up for a challenge?

Go out and get some of the many millions who didn't see any point in voting, because neither of the extremist parties offer any solutions and won't make ANY difference.
Go out and get the 60 million who voted for Romney.
Go out and get the 1 million who voted Gary Johnson and probably at least as many who wrote in Ron Paul.

Go out and get some of the people who voted for Obama as the lesser of 2 evils.

Let's run that by you again.
At LEAST 2 million of you wrote in Ron Paul or voted Gary Johnson.
All you have to do is go and get 30 others each to sign the petition (non RP voters). Does that sound too hard for you?
Go and ask your Ron Paul supporting friends to do the same.

Go out and get some - MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
People have nothing to lose for voting yes to this referendum.
They have everything to gain.

Let the people's voice be heard for a change.

If your state hasn't got a petition yet, why don't you start one?
You will need 150 local signatories to get the ball rolling and it appears on the net.

Lobby prominent Ron Paul supporters to support this effort.
I have asked Judgenap to try and get it out on Fox.
I am asking Doug Wead whether he will support it.

This comment below from Speciallyblend sums up my feelings on the matter exactly

"duh folks, this petition is to bring to light the frustration and expose the gov corruption in any shape or form. Legit state petitions are possibly forming. It can help expose the establishment. everyone trying to reference it can't be done or arguing reasons are missing the point. This is coming out of voter frustration and a tipping point. It is a great way to expose the gop est corruption to folks who might not of known. It is also a great way to let folks know obama/romney are the same.

Use it how you will but don't argue over the main point. Use all angles and all means to expose the corruption. This is just a vehicle 25000 sigs and obama has to respond by his own website. of course he will say no or whatever excuse to keep the establishment in power but it helps expose the establishment corruption to some degree and that is all that is needed.

If folks are so upset about an online petition. Wonder how they will feel when real ones start showing up with the correct amount of sigs in states such as colorado nevada and many others,delivered to their sec of state! If it happens or not, it helps expose!!"

Its a gift to pen-pushing authoritarian lexocrats, that's all

Its a gift to pen-pushing authoritarian lexocrats, that's all.

My point is, our Justice system functions on paper trails, and this is extremely convenient for activist prosecutors some time in the future: tomorrow, next month, ten years from now. Doesn't matter.

Its a legal document -- proof as it were -- which can be combined with all kinds of extraneous evidence to railroad a lot of people into prison. Not least in a corporate prison state like Louisiana, where the Judges and prosecutors and police work for a private firm!!

And I'm not talking about blowhards or bloggers being detained, but signatories who may find themselves in a position of authority during periods of unrest.

Any of you folks send out notices for atea party rallies? Planning on organizing OWS or other populist protests in the future? Taking an active role in Committees of Safety?

Signed docs like these are just what the lexocrats ordered to build a case against you: conspiracy to subvert and overthrow the government of the united states.

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

I think

Because I am so aware of a UN Agenda NWO, which is happening here.. where Obama got 80% of the vote.. and why Restoring the Republic is so important to me.. I can see a state, like Hawai'i, seriously discussion secession.. but 32 states all at the same time, right after an election while top generals are resigning?

I thinmk it's a great topic. What I don't get are how Ron Paul supporters signing this petition.. how is this restoring the republic?

Looks like we're in for a new flag.. no more 50 states..

Ron Paul's slogan is

Ron Paul's slogan is irrelevent now, he didn't win. Obama won. Obama's slogan is "change". We're just following the leaders lead.

Ron Paul's slogan is irrelevant now?

If you can get 88 up-votes (half the currant online users at this moment) I'll quit my committee and join you.

Restore the Republic???

Restore the Republic??? Overturn the 14th thru the 27th Amendments?

The attendants of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 debated upon what form of Government they should form. When Republic was talked about there were concerns that a Republic may not be viable for a Nation this size, that the United States may be too big realistically for a Republic TO SURVIVE.

13 Nations. Now we are 50 (plus Puerto Rico soon.)

This is without even getting into the unlawful practices that were REQUIRED in order to ratify this piece of paper you love so much. Had it been done lawfully it would have never passed, it was not popular at the time. Only indoctrination has made it popular. The ILLUSION of freedom, with the full knowledge of what it WOULD become right from the get-go.

Never happen!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

It'll happen with every state soon enough.

That's because it's one person making all the petitions.

This is just nonsense.

These aren't coming from state legislatures. Just some knucklehead in his mama's basement.

There is now at least one petition for every state.

As I predicted, and most of them read exactly alike.

Its not just one person

Its not just one person making these petitions. Now, it could be one person using different names I don't know, but it looks like a group of people planned this action because the originator names are all different.

Blessings )o(

You can create a bunch of fake email addresses and then

give them different "names" on the Whitehouse.gov site.

Look at each petition. All but about 5 or 6 read verbatim like the original one for Louisiana.

It's a copy and paste job.

I wouldn't even be surprised if someone set up a signing script, though I don't think that would be necessary save to get it to 150 so it shows up on the search results for the site.

WI and MN have been teaming up in recent years

over natural resource issues.

Might just form our own super-state.

North Dakota? You're in.

Illinois? Hell no.

It would appear

that the revolution is alive and well! Not sure where all of this will lead but it is certainly very encouraging to see so many people willing to stand and assert their rights. Good stuff indeed!

How is this the rEVOLution?

How is this Restoring the Republic?

It is possible for the

It is possible for the Republics to be united without having a chain forcing that unity.

Such was the case with the ORIGINAL (1776-1789) Constitution of these nations.

People's Awareness Coalition: Deprogramming Sequence

Why not?

I thought our campaign for liberty was to reinstate the republic and restore the constitution, specifically.

The Constitution was hardly

The Constitution was hardly viable for a compact between 13 nations. It stood no chance to withstand the diversity of 38 nations. It was dissolved and then RECONSTRUCTED. The governemnt was NOT reconstructed in the image of the original, for that system had failed. A new form of government was instituted as the Union was reconstructed. The original has not existed since 1861. It CANNOT exist in a nation of this size and diversity expecting all to be ruled in the same manner under a singular cultural standard. It is destine for failure, and failure will come. It will tear itself apart as one set of ideals tries to dominate and rule over the other. "Why can't we just get along?", "because your lifestyle offends me, and I want to make you follow what I believe". "Why can't we just live and let live?", "Because I think what you are doing is wrong, and I think government should force you to do what is right".

Muslim vs Christian
Capitalism vs Socialism
Collectivism vs Individualism
Conservatism vs Liberalism

The list goes on and on. Even Republic vs Democracy.

The government is the venue to settle these difference among these people. The idea of Live and Let Live is out of the question. Majority rules the minority is imbedded within our society.

A Republic is ENTIRELY inviable to such a society. The cause of "Restore the Republic" is doomed from the start. It only worked for 80 years, until the nation reached 38 nations, at which time there became too much conflict of ideals between the participants. Separation at that time would have been the proper thing to do. But by force, and only by force, it was prevented. We would today be two (or likely more) nations allied together, each living by the norms of the individual cultures. And now people expect that 51 FAR more diverse nations can come together under a Republic?

Maybe you should tell that to the president of the People's Republic of Communist China?

The ROC has suffered the same

The ROC has suffered the same effect with far more drastic effect. Force to comply has killed millions of people there, as not doubt you are aware. Republic in name only, just as the United States...Republic only works for small nations in which the people share common cultural ideals. Outside of such, it can only be accomplished by force, either legal force and/or physical force, and therefore it then is Republic in name only.

I think it is highly unlikely

Granger that this will result in a complete break-up of our union, but to me it shows that more and more people are waking up to what is going on in this country and are willing to start pushing back and however we can reach the general public to the idea that we have a serious problem here, the better that is going to be for our movement to ultimately restore our Republic.

Seems to me

Many people are awake, but they are unwilling, unable or not ready to do anything about it.. or they don't know what to do.. and why when a petition like this comes along, in desperation they sign.

People KNOW something is wrong, and they hope it is them, and everything will correct its self.

If we are no longer United States under a federal government.. what are we?

Maybe people are

Maybe people are understanding Patrick Henry: http://www.wfu.edu/~zulick/340/henry.html

It seems that not all the founders thought a consolidated government which bypassed the states and connected directly to the people was advantageous to the cause of liberty.

33 states now - Iowa

Here is Iowa's petition: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/allow-great-state-...

I wonder if any of these will lead to anything?


Texas 60,000 and Louisiana 26,330 have both crossed the thresh hold of 25,000 required for Obama to respond.
Several other states are getting close.

276,000 more voted yesterday
That is a hell of a LOT.

11 more states added their petitions.
That is well OVER Half the states.

This thing has LEGS.
Let's have a PROPER DEBATE.

Spread the word.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

Excuse the way my mind works,

But I am wondering if people are signing multiple petitions, or is each signer on each petition a different individual?

Seems I saw a comment yesterday saying people who where not even residents of Texas were signing the Texas petition...which is why I am making my comment asking my question...

How many legs are there in reality?
