Look at all the petitions on our White House's public website and imagine how that looks to the rest of the world.

I do wonder what Obama thinks about how well of a job he thinks he's doing when he is informed of this.

He thinks he is doing a great job, and according to his agenda, he is.

Very true but when you look at it from the outside...

Days after an election and in an extremely public (to the whole world) forum you have thousands of people demanding secession...

Doesn't matter if you agree with them or not. It's a statement and the amount of supporters is growing minute by minute.

He doesn't care one bit. He thinks he is one of the smartest people in history, so he disregards everything we all say.

The Nation is faltering financially and is on the brink of collapse. People are petitioning to get high on pot, light the Whithehouse purple, and outlaw offending the profits of major religions. America the Retarded.

I don't think he cares. He considers it a bluff.

The supporters 'may' be growing, but based on the election the lazy entitlement communists still outnumber them

The one from Michigan should easily get the needed 25K signatures from his site alone.

Well, now that it has been brought to the forefront on GL4x4............lets wait .

My $ says not a one of these will reach the required 25,000 "signatures"
If by chance one does , it will be challenged in the legal system......forever.

The nation is faltering on principles. We are morally bankrupt as a country.
The progressives are going to start tearing at the bill of rights. The first one is done, the press does the bidding of Obama.
They wil take the others out by number. The Second Amendment is next.

Our only hope is for a military coup to restore the constitution.

1) I hope it never comes to that.

2) I don't think that's possible considering the resources of the military.

Regardless of resources of the military, the US is very very close to a civil war. Civil unrest is at it's highest since the civil war itself. We're so divided it's almost unreal.

Honestly, I'm sick of the "entitled" demanding, while I bust my ass every day to give my family a good life. I'm sure anyone that works can appreciate what I'm saying. Since when was it acceptable to be proud that you're on foodstamps, or govermental help? It was never developed to be a lifestyle, but in fact a stop gap effort to help people stay on their feet.

While I can accept that some are born into fortuitous circumstances, since when were people complacent in lying down and not even trying to create a life?

Personally, a "civil war" may be exactly what it takes to right this ship. Republicans, Libretarians, and Independent Tradionalists have the majority of legal firearms, me included, so I'm good.
