18 States Petition to Secede from US (Links Included)

Links to 18 petitions on WhiteHouse.gov for state secessions can be found here:


From the article:

As of Sunday, November 11, 2012, 18 states have petitioned the Obama Administration for withdrawal from the United States of America in order to “create its own new government”. These petitions were created just days after the 2012 presidential election.

Louisiana was the first State to file a petition a day after the election by a Michael E. from Slidell, Louisiana. Texas was the next State to follow by a Micah H. from Arlington, Texas. The government allows one month from the day the petition is submitted to obtain 25,000 signatures in order for the Obama administration to consider the request.

I'm in Texas

right now and the people here know nothing of this. So really it is not any individual state that asking to secede, it is individual people.

Also, when a state secedes, they do not ask permission, they just do it.

inappropriate headline...

should state..."1 individual creates 18 petitions online".

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”

'..allows one month..in order for the Obama..to consider..'

You could have 50 petitions with 100,000 signatures each and B.O. will still ignore it. It means jackshiRt. You don't secede by permission, you secede by referendum and a 2/3 majority. This is at least the third post about these stupid petitions. Does it send a message? Yes. Does the message get through? Doubtful.

Don't forget you need your own currency

a sound banking system not tied into the FED, and a well regulated militia - otherwise, you're just engaging in wishful thinking.

The market will make it's own money to suit its needs.

Waiting for government is waiting for trouble.

Free includes debt-free!

But you can't be tied to a government currency.

That's the problem. Every State is currently tied (illegally so) to Federal Reserve Notes.

If a State BREAKS this tie, either with its own money or by allowing competing currency, AND breaks the banking tie with its own NON-FED member banks. (and non-FDIC member banks) AND has a well regulated (meaning armed, and drilled) militia, THEN and only then can they have any hope of making independence stick.


In 1979 and '80, the Hunt brothers tried to corner the market on silver. Author Bill Cooper claimed that they were trying to establish a currency base for the 'Republic of Texas'. Whether this is true or not is unknown but it makes perfect sense. Additionally, the 'Lightfoot' militia movement isn't near big enough to make a difference.
