Obama haters signing Colorado-must-secede petition should be deported, says new petition
Another petition, created Monday, has an even simpler message: "Keep the United States United:"
The United States of America was founded on principles of democracy and cooperation. We have gone through over two centuries of triumph and turmoil, but more importantly,we have done so as a united country.Number of signatures: 1,525.
Times have been tough for all of us; some states are frustrated to the point of petitioning for secession, but now is not the time to be divided.Their actions can only harm our country. The best way to help the American people is not through bipartisan bickering, secession, or the general lack of cooperation that runs rampant in our country. The best and only way to help the American people is by continuing to be "one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
We the undersigned implore the Administration to do everything in its power to keep our nation united.
A fourth petition relies a bit less on patriotism. It's called "Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them:"

Mr. President, please sign an executive order such that each American citizen who signed a petition from any state to secede from the USA shall have their citizenship stripped and be peacefully deported.At least the call is peaceful! It has 9,313 signatures.
And if residents of left-leaning Denver is worried about Colorado's petition, they may want to follow in the footsteps of someone from Austin, Texas, which came up with this hilarious request to the White House: "Peacefully grant the city of Austin Texas to withdraw from the state of Texas & remain part of the United States.Democracy, y'all.
