~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
Has anyone else posted this? If they have, I apologize for re-posting it again. There are multiple states petitioning the US government for secession on the government website. There are people petitioning the government to deport and revoke citizenship of any of us that sign the petitions.
New states are popping up each time I access the website. You can check them out here if you are interested.
JG, I love these type of discussions! They are mostly theoretical and you get to throw out ideas, knowing that most will never occur. I don't get so emotionally invested in them. Oh, I want my country! But I don't foresee any states making a serious attempt to secede!
I love it too, Mollie. I often 'read only' and refrain from jumping in. I thought this was a great addition to the thread of conversation.
A five-year Marine veteran who just started college this fall in Arlington, Texas. An aircraft construction mechanic and his young bride — parents of two small kids in the suburbs of Tulsa, Okla. And, yes, the former owner of a topless car wash in Mobile, Ala., who says the government took his business away from him.
Meet the faces behind recent White House petitions asking the Obama administration to let go of three of America’s 50 states.
All 50 U.S. states are mentioned in similar petitions pending with the White House website’s “We the People” project.
“I believe secession is a viable option,” University of Texas-Arlington freshman Micah Hurd told college newspaper The Shorthorn. His petition leads all others in support, with more than 106,000 signers.
Hurd laid out his reasons for floating a secession proposal, during an interview with KTVT-11, the CBS affiliate in Dallas. (RELATED: Will Texas secede? Petition reaches enough signatures to trigger Wh...)
“We’ve got, in my opinion, blatant infringement of our rights by the TSA,” Hurd said. “And historically it is a slippery and dangerous slope when we start giving up rights and freedoms in the name of protection.”
“I took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. And that’s an oath I took as a Marine, but I think we’ve got more enemies to the Constitution in-country than we do out of the country.”
