Residents in the state of Louisiana are petitioning to secede from the U.S., residents in over 30 more states have filed requests with the White House to peaceably break from the union.

Furthermore, the Louisiana petition has topped 27,000 signatures, exceeding the threshold needed after which the White House has pledged to respond.

for Texas, one of the new states to join the fray, the signature count now tops 60,000.

The White House’s We the People website explains that once a petition reaches 25,000 signatures, it will be placed on a queue for response from the administration. The website also maintains a page for previous petitions that have received a White House response.

Joining Louisiana now are Alaska, Utah, Wyoming, California, Delaware, Nevada, Kansas, Ohio, South Dakota, West Virginia, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Oklahoma, Arkansas, South Carolina, Georgia, Missouri, Tennessee, Michigan, New York, Colorado, Oregon, New Jersey, North Dakota, Montana, Indiana, Mississippi, Kentucky, Florida, North Carolina, Alabama and Texas.

The Louisiana petition, which has served as a pattern for many of the new states, reads as follows: “We petition the Obama administration to: Peacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.”

It continues, “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.’”

The petition concludes with a further quote from the Declaration of Independence: “‘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.’”

There is more and more proof that the election for President has been tainted with fraud. Pennsylvania has counted more votes than were signed in for. Cincinnati has a full area of over 19,000 votes in ONE district where absolutely No One voted for Romney. Florida is once again having to recount votes.

Who REALLY won the election?? I doubt we will ever know.

Fraud and injustice is pre-eminent in our society these days.

How does it feel to know that Benghazi was not reported by the lame stream media before the election? Our government has refused to give us honesty and openness on Benghazi, yet they refused to issue help for the Ambassador and three other Americans who were begging for help for MONTHS before the attack that killed them all.

Hillary "can't testify due to TRAVEL plans!!?????

Get rid of Petraeus because he "had an affair"?? More like get rid of Petraeus so he won't testify about Benghazi.

I mean, come on now. Presidents have been having affairs since nearly the very start of our country, and other politicians have also been dipping their wicks where they don't belong, and none of them got canned. Americans have learned to just shake our heads and go on about our business, saying things like "typical Washington".

Fast and Furious will NEVER be honestly revealed, and Holder is going to just skip off into the sunset on that one.

Our so-called President has set up travel/vacation plans to visit Burma and other countries.

Meanwhile, the good folks in New York and New Jersey still do not have heat, electricity, water, sewers in operating order nor homes to live in. Obama saw fit to get in a photo op with Christie, and then has dropped all interest.

FEMA closed down DUE TO WEATHER. No one has talked about that little fact in the media, have they? Washington has done nothing to get FEMA moving to help these people. A prime example of Government at Work.

Our President is indeed going to raise taxes..........ACROSS THE BOARD.........and yet there is a faction of people who still get up in the mornings, face D.C. and bow and pray.

Nothing is being done about our unemployment, other than increasing it.

Companies are laying off or closing because they can't afford to keep up with the new taxes placed upon them and all the constant new regulations which prohibit their successful operation. I'm not talking about just the big companies. I am talking about SMALL businesses who are going down in alarming order.

We are now going to be stuck with the cost of Obama care, and socialized medicine. Doctors and nurses are leaving the fields in droves because of it. They can't afford to stay in practise either. So, being over 68 years old now and have a number of unpleasant things going on with my body which need surgery, I will (instead of surgeries) be given death counseling.

Christians cannot pray in public, but Muslims can.

Even if you THINK of voting for a white person, you are declared a racist. It doesn't matter WHY you want to vote for the individual of your choice: if a black candidate is also running, and you don't vote for him/her, you are a racist.

Such absolute nonsense!

And there's more........MUCH MORE.........happening to my beloved country. None of it good.

Perhaps seccession is the best choice for all of us.

We once started this country with nothing, and I am sure that Americans can do it again.

Leave Washington D.C. to itself, smoldering in its own caldron of immaturity, hate, lies, attacks, spending, self serving, petty, jealous dysfunction. It can be its own country.

I truly believe the States can do a much better job without Washington interfering.

    My son is having a hard time finding a permanent job now that he has graduated from college. He's keeping his job working with Jimmie Johns in the meantime. Now we get to worry about my husband getting laid off with Caterpillar in the next year. They've already started rolling layoffs. I'm afraid its only going to get worse. We just keep praying and we take it a day at a time. There isn't much we can just as one family, but we do what we can while we try to save money and get our house paid off so we have very little debt - just in case.

    The rules for service personnel in other countries to vote were really quite confusing.I think that perhaps there was a reason for that there was not one American service member here who wanted to vote for Obama !

    The SO and I were talking about these very things last night. It's a frightening world we live in and made more so with every day that passes. I'm thinking Cafe Au Lait in the French Quarter..

    On a more somber note, I read an article a few days ago that speculated the job loss generated as a fallout from the Obamacare could exceed 10,000,000... People everywhere are already being laid off. The company I work for is wondering how best to keep things going, but Powers that Be have already said layoffs and closures are in store for us.
