Obama haters petition for Colorado to secede: More than 3,000 signatures at WhiteHouse.gov

A quick glance through the signatures on Colorado's petition show that many of them are not residents of Colorado. In the most recent thirty at this writing, only three of them are listed as residents of Colorado -- from Pueblo, Littleton and Denver.

The online petitioning platform dictates that the White House must respond if a petition reaches 25,000 signatures within thirty days. That means Colorado is about 14 percent of the way there. Louisiana, which appears to be the first petition created after election day, is currently more than half the way there, with 13,084 signatures.

The petitions, which don't mention Barack Obama or Mitt Romney, come just weeks after both candidates made commitments to bipartisanship and reaching across the aisle in their final pleas for votes.

If voters aren't satisfied with these petitions and still want to make their voices heard beyond the call for secession, there's always a other White House petition entitled "Recount the election!"

It's happening in about 25 states. Many have over 25,000 signatures. People are just done being regulated by the feds.

"you dumb bitch Im a libertarian... Im about bringing us together but it is you crybabies on both sides that keeps on fucking us... " I'm not sayin this, but Tyler did and it's the funniest, most ironic, lack of critical thinking Ive ever seen in a libertarian. If contradicting yourself within the same sentence was a game you'd be a winner Tyler.

people who didnt think it all the way through. these states would become 3rd world nations overnight, with no rights, no utility, no protection. that is what the moneygrubing global elite of CEOs realy wants

Accusing people who want nothing to do with a president who is signing executive orders one after the other to take away our freedoms at the snap of his figures, who didn't fulfill almost all of his campaign promises the last time, who didn't do a thing to help the middle class, who did more to put our country into a financial crisis, who gave a huge percentage of the bail out money to banks overseas, who has done nothing but inch our country closer to financial collapse means you don't see the big picture. Obama doesn't care about you......he has his own agenda. Signing petitions is an act of desperation. Obama and Romney are New World Order puppets and you make it so easy for them to control the masses.

Idiots are signing this thing. Here's to hoping they DO secede so the average Colorado IQ can increase exponentially.

And it's the same states that want to secede AND impeach Obama. Which is an oxymoron bc to have the first one, means you have no say in the second...

Texas and no other state has no case to secede. The 1861 ruling says only if its an act of war or revolt and ALL states have to agree (and they loose all rights under the American constitution.

Just let them know that C. Springs is OK for them, wall off the city after they're all in there and open the flood gates.

For what amounts to such an amazingly small percentage of the population, they sure do know how to get noticed. And, I love how a lot of these people who claim to be struggling, well, they seem to be doing a lot better than most. Greedy, stupid people.

Colorado overwhelmingly voted for Obama which means a majority of voters here want him as President.

I don't see anything in it about hating Obama. I signed it. I want the US government to end. I don't care if it's a socialist, fascist or corporatist president, Republican, Democrat or other. I no longer approve.

11 million Illegal aliens, Rampant voter fraud in all Democratic centers, and the knowledge that Holder won't prosecute, congratulations on belittling the United States for your own benefit.  I wonder how many illegals voted 5 million?  I wonder how it is physically possible that not one person voted Republican in the Democratically controlled cities?  Let's face it, Obama did not win, he and his minions cheated.  Just like all National Socialist Workers Parties are instructed to(Democrats in the US, use your obama phone to google the European version)

Maybe all states should secede.  What a bunch of sore losers.

It's very clear that these secessionists have no actual idea what secession would entail.

An accurate analogy would be one ofe the components of a tantrum which is acting out anger without reason or having a solution targeted.

These are lower intelligence, petulant childlike ranters and ravers.

Imagine what would occur if they were to secede:

They would lose their citizenship and have NO citizenship in any country.

They would have no gov't agencies to protect them, no parks, no garbage pick up, no utilites and ad infinitum.

In essence, they would be boat people in campers or other vehicles without a valid passport to enter the U.S.A.

Where would they go?

They would have no country, no water, no anything.

 

These things demonstrate exactly how totally ignorant they are.

BTW-Even responsible Americans who voted for the losers know that this is mere stupidity and are not the ones signing these so called petitions.

 

What do you want to bet that they are not anything like those of us who are home owners, business owners and able to reason?

I just think its a sad day in this country when people who lose cant just move on....I know alot of people didnt like Obama..but at least he didnt strand the volunteers  that helped him out like Mitt did..you know cutting of the credit cards so they couldnt get back home....what a real nice guy...Also all this talk of ripping our union apart is tantamount to treason.......

 @mratmguy 

There is one positive and very MAJOR difference between you and me.

That difference is that, when I troll, I bring home walleye or other fresh caught fish for dinner.

When you troll, there is NOTHING positive or productive.

 @mratmguy How many illegals voted?

 

Zero.

 

How many blatant, factual demonstrations of " not one person voted Republican in the Democratically controlled cities" can you actually find? 

 

Zero. 

 

Because neither of these things happened. 

 

How many ways can people try to spin the fact that an out-of-touch, unprincipled candidate with no legitimate counter-policy to the incumbency was unable to connect with enough people to convince them he would make a better leader? 

 

Infinite, apparently.

 @mratmguy Some bold statements, mratmguy. Thanks for sharing them.

 @merry31 Or better yet, maybe we should arrest everyone who committed voter fraud and charge them with treason.... Can you imagine how fast all of your illegal buddies who voted for the Socialts Democrat would sprint for the border?  Or better yet, I would pay to be in the front row when Eric Holder, Barrack Obama, and Justice Keagan are tried and hanged for treason....

So, using your insane logic, splitting from George III was treason?  I bet most of his cronies would agree.  Food for thought, if you leave the Union and have to fight for the right to keep your CONSTITUTIONAL rights, if you win, you are a patriot if you lose, you were an OBamahater....
