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
http://www.dailypaul.com/262715/15-states-start-petitions-to...

"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!!"

secession

WHY are we ASKING the Gov for secession?
We don't ask them! We TELL THEM we are seceding.
The idea of asking them is absurd. What do you think the answer would be?
NO!
Were we asked about the implementation of The Patriot Act or NDAA, or the TSA (Thieving Scumbag Administration)or even FEMA?
NO we were not!
We should ask them nothing! We should TELL them bye bye before it's too late.

All I can say is...

...AWESOME!!!! Simply awesome!!!!

Under whose authority are

Under whose authority are these petitions being issued? Has the legislature of the respected state issued the petition? Governor? The only question this petition ought to ask is this:

If we the people of X State go to all the trouble of convincing our legislature, executive, and judiciary that we ought to secede, will you stand in our way? Will the SCOTUS stand in our way?

This Is Such a Natural for Freedom Movement Peeps

How could any Freedom Movement peep object to secession?

Of course, I think that here in Texas we should make Ron Paul President and yall come on down!

What a great idea!

I'd love to have to spend the best years of my life sitting in a mud puddle fighting a civil war.

Aside from that, these obviously aren't petitions by state governments, they're petitions people plastered onto the White House website.

Valid sucession

People from outside of a state are signing the petition of another state to secede. Shouldn't you be within the state that wants to secede for the petition to be valid? I'm not convinced that the petition on the given link are valid means of secession.
Update: Come to think of it, I think these secessions need to happen at all of the individual states level and not at the federal level.

It is better to look dumb and not be, than to look smart and not be.

It's not like the NJ

It's not like the NJ government is trying to leave the union. These are petitions a few people filed but NJ is trying to leave the union. Some people I'm sure would like to though.

I'm all for this

But why do we need Obama's permission? Don't the state congesses just take a vote on it? Isn't that what the states did before good ole Abe invaded them?

it makes me feel sad (if they are successful)--

and I'm not surprised--

I'm not in one of those states--

I can't see this leading to anything good. But then I can't really see anything leading to good at this point.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

LIBERTY2ME's picture

about that impeachemnt

what would the impeachment be based on exactly? In the past I thought so many things that he did must have been impeachable, yet there was always another reason why it wasn't impeachable. Plus, even if the house puts him up for impeachment, the senate will not. One big reason that Im sure Obama knew not only is he going to cheat to keep his presidency but he better cheat for those senators too...

Murder

He executed 3 American citizens without trial. The "legal" framework for scrapping the 6th Amendment is a secret memo. When asked about it he says he can't discuss it because of national security. It is murder and he COULD be held accountable. Murder is still illegal, even if the government does it. Of course, we can't even get a murderous cop convicted of man slaughter...

LIBERTY2ME's picture

I understand what your

I understand what your saying, but this does not answer my question. He will just get out of it, or the senate will never bring the impeachment to the floor, so it will never happen. I wish it would, believe me.

I could see it pass in the

I could see it pass in the house but def not in the senate.

While I think it would great to have these secessions occur

I must remember the monster in chief, Lincoln, the greatest murderer of Americans in all of history...

Lincoln clearly stated he was for a revolution in this case.

"All profess to be content in the Union if all constitutional rights can be maintained. Is it true, then, that any right plainly written in the Constitution has been denied? I think not. Happily, the human mind is so constituted that no party can reach to the audacity of doing this. Think, if you can, of a single instance in which a plainly written provision of the Constitution has ever been denied. If by the mere force of numbers a majority should deprive a minority of any clearly written constitutional right, it might in a moral point of view justify revolution; certainly would if such right were a vital one." Abraham Lincoln's First Inaugural Address, 1861.

"Is it true, then, that any right plainly written in the Constit

"Is it true, then, that any right plainly written in the Constitution has been denied?"

WRONG QUESTION!!!!!!!!!!!

The States may do anything not "plainly written in the Constitution" to belong to the Federal government!

OTOH, Lincoln was one of the worst when it came to

violation of the Constitutional limits on the presidency, thus setting us up for the Imperial Presidency we have now. He put people in prison with out due process, violated the right of Congress to declare war, virtually eliminated freedom of the press, and started the first 'personal income tax'.
