After Obama Victory, A Petition For States To Secede On The White House Website

At 25,000 signatures, the White House says it will respond. Potheads and UFO truthers displaced by secessionists.

More than a dozen petitions sprung up on the White House petitions website “We The People” this weekend asking for various states to be allowed to secede from the United States after President Barack Obama won reelection.

The Texas petition was the first, and most detailed, listing complaints such as the Transportation Security Administration and the National Defense Authorization Act, which petitioners called “blatant abuses” of their rights.

According to the White House website, if any petition garners 25,000 signatories, the administration will respond. Previous petitions have asked the U.S. government to acknowledge the existence of extraterrestrials and to reveal the White House beer recipe, along with countless others dealing with the legalization of marijuana.
