[Update - 11/14/12] Seven states hit their target goal of signatures. (Click here to see which states)
An unprecedented amount of petitions to secede have flooded the White House's We the People” program.(H/T The Daily Caller)
According to the Terms of Participation, via the White House website there are two thresholds a petition must reach:
To cross the first threshold and be searchable within WhiteHouse.gov, a petition must reach 150 signatures within 30 days.
To cross the second threshold and require a response, a petition must reach 25,000 signatures within 30 days.
So far, petitions for 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.
[Update] Texas has surpassed the 25,000 signature threshold.
[Update] In addition, TheDC has confirmed that citizens from Alaska, Pennsylvania and Connecticut have submitted petitions. California adds their name to the list.
[Update] Additional petitions found for the states below;
Arizona, Kansas, Idaho, Illinois, Hawaii, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts , Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio , Oklamhoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming.
There is no likelihood that these states are going to truly secede, but if the petitions reach the 25,000 signature mark, by the White House website's own terms and rules, the Obama administration would be forced (in theory) to at least respond.
Obama spent four years dividing America, instigating class war, and pitting one group of Americans against another and from his speeches since he won reelection, it appears he plans to continue to do so.
America has not been this divided since the civil war era..... Obama built that.
