How much pro-independence momentum will result from the recent US presidential election and ongoing, US-promoted displacement of Southerners? We shall see.
There is a petition for Louisiana to leave the failed Union.
And there is a poll on Texas seceding as well (as of the time of this post the pro-independence voters are at 83%).
H/T Occidental Dissent
UPDATE: An SNN reader has also drawn up a petition supporting the general right of secession.
Here are more State secession petitions: Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Virginia.
Note that these states largely represent the conservative red states and largely formerly of the Confederate States of America. Many of the same reasons for the secession movement of 1861 is apparent today with a huge cultural divide and disagreement over taxation and federal spending and infringement on individual liberties and states rights. Each of these non-binding petititions makes the same statement and here is the one for Alabama. To sign the petition simply requires registering a user account and receiving a password from the whitehouse.gov website. The following provides the verbiage of the petition for Alabama's secession:
We petition the obama administration to:
Peacefully grant the State of Alabama to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.Peacefully grant the State of Alabama 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."
