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.
