News Says 7 States Have Gathered Sigs To Secede From Us

Recommended Posts

interesting read even though it won't happen and I am certainly not advocating it... notice u gotta have a white house account to even sign it... lol i also found our state also has a petition goin:







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


As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776:

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

"...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government..."

Created: Nov 10, 2012

Issues: Civil Rights and Liberties

Do we not depend on the federal government for a lot of money? Would the money we saved by not sending it to the feds be enough to off set the federal cash cow that we now enjoy? Just curious.


What happens if our state is hit with a natural disaster such as a fire, tornado's, drought or flooding, would we have enough money to rebuild our neighborhoods, schools and towns with out the help of the federal government or would we just be sheet out of luck?


These are things we should consider before we decide we want to go it on our own. Our government is far from perfect, that is why we elect people to conduct the business of our country. We continue to follow this process until we get it right or our time on this planet is finished which ever comes first. That's just how I see it.

A state cannot secede legally speaking. We don't own the state of Michigan any more than people in Ohio own Michigan.


These petitions are nothing more than symbolic gestures made by people who don't like Obamacare. Not only that but they're a very tiny portion of the electorate. It's mostly a bunch of nonsense. If everyone who had a gripe with the feds signed a petition to secede then we would always have petitions circulating and initiated by those not in power at the moment.
