Secession petitions picking up steam

| No Comments

Approximately 700,000 residents in the U.S. hailing from all 50 states have signed petitions on the White House website to secede from the country to create their own governments as of Wednesday, the Philadelphia Inquirer said.
At least seven petitions have over 25,000 signatures, the Philadelphia Inquirer said. Texas has the most of any state's petition with 99,000 signatures, the Inquirer said.
Upon further review of these petitions, many of the signatures are from residents not even living in the states. Minnesota's petition has signatures from people living all over the U.S.
Many Republican governors are taking a stand against these petitions, the Huffington Post said.
Jennifer Ardis, spokeswoman for Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley, spoke of the secession petitions to Alabama Live, as reported in the Huffington Post.
"We can disagree on philosophy, but we should work together to make this country the best it can be," Ardis said.
Conversely, two petitions have been proposed to exile and deport those wishing to secede from the U.S. Those petitions currently have a combined 25,000 total signatures, the Philadelphia Inquirer said.
