    Secession petitions filed in 20 states


    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. Oddly, folks from Georgia have filed twice. Even stranger, several of the petitions come from states that went for President Barack Obama.


    Just wondering.......I dont live in america:)

    Just ignore all of that and go on about your life. Nothing to see here.

    These petitions aren't official. All it does is get a response from the White House. Each state needs to declare their independence to make their succession official.
