Texas secession petition grows on White House website

WASHINGTON – When the White House promised that any online petition getting more than 25,000 signatures would get a thorough review and an official response, officials probably weren’t thinking about requests for secession.

But on Monday – less than a week after President Barack Obama‘s re-election – a petition on the White House website calling for Texas to secede from the union has received more than 35,000 signatures, far more than similar requests from other states.

The White House website states that “if a petition gets enough support,” which it defines as 25,000 signatures within 30 days, “White House staff will review it, ensure it’s sent to the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.” Shortly after 2:30 p.m. Central time on Monday, the petition passed that threshold.

The petition, created Friday, argues, “The U.S. continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the federal government’s neglect to reform domestic and foreign spending.” It further claims that American citizens are suffering “blatant abuses of their rights,” pointing to the Transportation Security Administration and the National Defense Authorization Act, which allows for indefinite detention of terror suspects.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has previously made comments suggesting he would consider withdrawing from the U.S.

“When we came into the nation in 1845, we were a republic, we were a stand-alone nation,” Perry said in 2009. “And one of the deals was, we can leave anytime we want. So we’re kind of thinking about that again.”

    Rick Perry Takes Stand On Texas Secession Issue

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry does not stand behind a secession petition filed with the White House by a Lone Star State resident in the aftermath of the presidential election.

    The Dallas Morning News reports that the Republican governor’s press secretary, Catherine Frazier, said in an email that Perry “believes in the greatness of our Union and nothing should be done to change it.” She added, “But he also shares the frustrations many Americans have with our federal government. Now more than ever our country needs strong leadership from states like Texas, that are making tough decisions to live within their means, keep taxes low and provide opportunities to job creators so their citizens can provide for their families and prosper.”

    Here is a superb link to request recount of national election. It is going close to 100,000 signatures already. First add your vote to the petition,(check if you don’t want your name shown)- – then you’re coming to next page which is a pre-written email and letter to all the representatives in your state (edit if you want). It’s very simple and quick. Congress would be more likely to take action than White House, don’t you think?

    And he (ARPAIO) insists he could have productive discussions with Obama. “I won’t even ask you for your birth certificate,” Arpaio quipped, of Obama.

    This headline (with GRAPHIC) was on top of DRUDGE until replaced with HAMAS’ threat to ISRAEL. Nonetheless, it is still at the top of the central column in a high visibility position,as millions around the world become aware of the repercussions for a very odd election;

    50 states now have petitions, but not enough signatures yet. I hope that people will start signing. Power is in numbers in order to defeat evil.

    If the Whitehouse says: “if a petition gets enough support,”, then why don’t we start a petition “to have President Obama produce his birth certificate” and/or “explain his stolen SSN”

    Why would you petition the White House for your state secede?

    You have given the power for your secession to the White House. You have given the power for your secession to some public relations interns at the White House. They will write a humiliating response and will mock you.

    The White House can just say “no” and be done with it because you said they could.

    You can’t even petition the proper party.
