A Post Election Petition has been Filed for Georgia to Secede from the Union - Did You Sign?

Georgia is one of 20 states that has petitioned to secede from the United States of America

News agencies in Georgia have reported that there atleast 25 states, including Georgia, that filed petitions with the Federal Government to "peacefully secede" from the Union.

Did you or anyone you know in Southwest Atlanta sign the petition or intending to sign the petition? 

Precincts in SW Atlanta overwhelmingly voted for President Obama in both 2008 and 2012, as you can see from the searchable tool we created.

According to a CBS Atlanta report, "petitions have been signed by people in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas." 

These petitions are not to be taken as a serious threat, but still the White House will officially review and respond to a particular petition only after it has met a threshold of 25,00 signatures.  At last count, Georgia had 529 signatures according to the White House Petition website. (CBS reports that there are over 10,000 GA signatures)

To be fair, The White House Petition website is a place where "We the People" can petition our government for anything.  So please do not be alarmed, this is actually a good way to see democracy at work and citizens expressing their ideas in a peaceful manner.

Blacks were put in chains by blacks in Africa to come here. You may want to brush up on history before posting. BTW, race card denied, please shred that card!

Wasn't he black in 2008 & no one tried to succeed? Your post makes no logical sense! Please shred that race card, it sets your folks back.

It's "there" money? No it's not THEIR money, it's the American TAXPAYERS money. Something you obviously don't pay. Your foul language is typical of an O voter.
