On Nov. 6, Americans voted to return Barack Obama to the White House; then on Nov. 7, some folks in Louisiana petitioned the White House to peaceably withdraw their state from the Union.
According to the White House website, the petition was created by Michael E. (full last name not provided) of Slidell, La., the day after the election and has since been electronically signed by a few hundred people, most – but not all – of whom hail from the Pelican State.
“We petition the Obama administration to: Peacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government,” the petition reads.
The petition has until Dec. 7 of this year to gather 25,000 signatures, at which time, the White House pledges, it will be placed on a queue for response from the administration.

I have just signed the petition and am glad to have done so. I encourage everyone to please visit THIS SITE to sign the petition. You do not need to be a resident of the state of Louisiana to sign it. Already the petition has nearly 4,000 signatures and is growing rapidly. At 12pm EST it was at 2,700. So it is growing rapidly. Please be sure to sign it if you believe in the secession of Southern states from this ungodly union.
It appears as though a petition to allow the secession of the state of Texas is now included. Please sign THAT PETITION as well to help bring the topic to national discussion.
Florida has also joined in the secession petitioning. Please sign THIS PETITION as well.
Here is a list of the other states with secession petitions:
