Can someone explain to me - So what?

1. Why re there signatures from all over the country on my state's petition?
2. So what if the White House "responds?" I am sure we will all be told how seriously they take the matter, and thank us for putting our name on their list voluntarily. OK, probably not that last part. Perhaps they will tell you they will let you secede if you send them $1000.

Am I the only one who feels like this is sort of baloney? I am all in favor of peaceful r3volution, and if a "bloodless coup" can restore liberty and justice, that would be awesome. But I have my doubts about begging the master for my liberty. Can anyone point me to a success story of a gutless coup?

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
