    Why do people allow themselves to get involved in this childish game playing. These petitions are created by political groups who then spam sign the heck out of them just to create division. People that do this stuff are no better than the losers that whimpered about Bush winning election for years.

    Awesome, just what I want, a Civil War in my front yard.

    That was sarcasm, by the way.

    You should read the text of the petition that Texas submitted to the White House and then read the Declaration of Independence. At some point government gets too far off track and the people try many things to change direction.

    There is now a petition to Deport you if you sign to secede lol They could have just signed your petition since you want to self-deport.
    That is some serious slacktivism.
    I don't think people realize what they are asking for even if it is an empty gesture.
    To start with....President Kitzhaber

    When it happens it will not be because of some petition.
    It is a never ending cycle of history - empires are built, then they decay and finally fall and break apart.

    I say let them go, then we shock and awe them a little bit, then trade embargo them. Done.

    What the US doesn't need is another Israel-esque welfare case.
