Idiot Starts Petition To Secede From United States

Peacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.

I’m not linking to it. You’ll have to copy & paste.

Mostly signed by folks who don’t even live in Louisiana.  A decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation… They don’t even list any reasons why. Utterly ridiculous.

    The only state of the union having the foresight anticipating these circumstances was Texas. It can secede, written in its Constitution. All the rest will have to “Declare an Act of War” or some such thing. About like 1770’s era revolts.

    Let’s face it:
    1) Public sector – no Congressional representation in We The Elite People of culture of corruption in Washington DC,
    2)Private Sector – crony capitalism, 3) Three Branches of Government – totally dysfunctional ceding their powers to the Executive Branch of US’s government,
    4) Rule of Law is obeyed as an after thought… sometimes not at all,
    5) religion under attack from all sides,
    6) education has been relegated to less than third world status,
    7) USA’s financial system and capitalism as well as its handmaiden “the invisible hand” have been replaced with centralised planning,
    8) government, at national and local levels has become regulation happy with more and more attempts at centralization of both “greed and power.”
    9) Rampant Election fraud,
    10) Absurd Tax Codes,
    11) National Popular Vote Movement seeking to replace Electoral College with “winner-takes-all” system.
    12) Judicial activism legislating from the Bench, especially in apellate courts. Why continue with this farce?

    Secession from a federation or confederation is a viable (though ugly) thought. Then there’s secession of a better off region (states)vs. worse off one (federal government). But the Supreme Court in it’s infinite wisdom shut-off all talk of sucession in the 1869 ruling Texas vs. White 74 U.S. 700 decision…”unilateral secession is unconstitutional,” commenting that revolution or consent of the States could lead to a sucessful secession.

    The question before america revolves around “tyranny” and “tyrannical” as now excercised by an “out of control” Executive branch of US Government. Our Founding Fathers designed three co-equal branches of government as a system of “Checks-and-Balance.” Absent this system, secession is an option. Something to think about. Frightening, but a thought. God Bless America. Amen.

    I can’t help but think that if Texas succeeded that the Mexican cartels would be all over us with no national military to protect us. Sure, “we all have guns” down here anyway – but we are far from organized. Then what? Obama would laugh if we asked him for help.

    Succession is a bad idea no matter what state you are…unless you’re California — they can go…

    Secession is a viable option. It is the right of all free states to opt out of any confederation. Would we allow the UN to tells us “Sorry, but you can’t leave us.”? Hell no, we wouldn’t!

    The right of free association is one of the cornerstones of liberty. Should a people decide – as of right they may – they should be allowed to withdraw.

    That said, “A decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation…”

    Governments long established shouldn’t be cast off for light & transient causes, either.

    There is no real justification for requesting withdrawal at this time, but that is up to each state to decide on it’s own, in it’s own interest.

    I have no doubt that a Texas succession would start a dominoe effect followed closely by Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas. The natives are restless and all you have to do is go by the Wanamacher Gun Show in Tulsa this weekend to know it.packed to the wall. 11 acres of firearm bliss.

  5. notamobster says:

    I love the ‘stuff’ at gun shows, but I despise crowds.

    Never been a fan of being packed into a building with thousands of people.

    UPDATE: White House deluged with petitions for secession from 20 states.

    If any of the petitions receives 25,000 signatures [Louisian well on it’s way with 15k+] – the White House will be ‘forced’ to respond according to the petition rules. Stupid people.

    I think TX is at 20+k. I’m tempted to sign it just so BO has to acknowledge it. I don’t exactly want the attention though.
