Georgia Residents Petition White House to Secede from the U.S.

White House forum draws attention from disappointed voters in more than a dozen states.

Considering Mitt Romney easily won Georgia on Nov. 6, it's not surprising that there are some disappointed Republicans in the Peach State.

Residents of Georgia and more than a dozen other states have filed petitions to secede from the United States, according to media reports.

Residents of Alabama, New York, Michigan, Texas and other states have filed the petitions under the "We The People" program, featured on the White House website, according to the Huffington Post.

The Georgia petition, which already has more than 20,000 signatures, asks to "Peacefully grant the State of Georgia to withdraw from the United States of Americ and create it own NEW government."

The website allows citizens to make a petition for a variety of issues, including recognizing sign language as a language or refusing foreign aid to Uganda.

Several petitions have been created since Friday, with individuals requesting that more than a dozen states be allowed to secede. The list includes AlabamaAlaska,ArizonaArkansasCaliforniaColoradoDelawareFloridaGeorgiaIndianaKansas,KentuckyLouisianaMichiganMississippiMissouriMontanaNebraskaNew JerseyNew YorkNevadaNorth CarolinaNorth DakotaOhioOklahomaOregon,PennsylvaniaSouth CarolinaSouth DakotaTennesseeTexasUtahWest Virginia and Wyoming.

According to the Huffington Post, The White House website explains of the review process for "We the People" petitions that get 25,000 signatures in a 30-day period: "If a petition meets the signature threshold, it will be reviewed by the Administration and we will issue a response."

Texas reached the 25,000 mark on Monday.

I do believe it is about time that the liberals figure out a way to support themselves. Secession is a start in the direction of division but the division needs to come right down to allowing conservatives to live separate from liberal ideals.
