The Obama Hustle

Official photographic portrait of US President...

In the wake of last week’s presidential election, thousands of Americans have signed petitions seeking permission for their states to peacefully secede from the United States. The petitions were filed on We the People, a government website.

States with citizens filing include Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.

Also, if a state was to actually succeed, why ask the federal government for permission? I don’t know, I may be completely wrong or have a tin foil hat on LOL

    HAHAHA! I’m not on that list either :/ But, think of it this way… when one plays chess or any other game of strategy, they don’t tell their opponent what their move is going to be. I don’t know… I just think it is stupid I guess, list or not, what’s the point?
