    See the update on additional states joining the petition to withdraw from the union;

    http://www.topix.com/city/slidell-l...d-a-petition-to-secede-from-the-united-states


    https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/pe...ca-and-create-its-own-new-government/1wrvtngl


    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.

    As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776:

    "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

    "...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government..."

    Interesting. Looks like most of the signatures on the petition are
    from people that do NOT reside in Louisiana. How would they be
    valid?

    It looks like the white house is gathering info on who to go after.

    Hell will have a population boom which includes the entire population of heaven and earth before a U.S. president allows a state to leave the union.

    Looks like 40.6% of the states vote went to Obama. It may be a way to show displeasure but this will never happen.

    To approve a state's removal from the Union is outside the president's authority. Has Louisiana's legistlature and executive approved this request? No, you are just a hack.

    Declaring indepedence in our country has been tried twice, in 1776 and in 1861. To make it stick requires winning a war. Be my guest.

    No need for name calling. I'm sure it's just a showing of dis-content over the elections, to whom everyone here would agree with. But to think Louisiana would be alone to fight for their independance IF anything like this would ever come to bear would be a bad mistake. There are plenty of freedom fighters, or what you may consider terrorist's to come to their aid from all across this land. Oh, I seen your from Illinois so that explains your post.

    A point well taken though. Thank God our founding fathers didn't request that King George grant permission for our independence. But then, they were a different breed of men willing to sacrifice everything to rid themselves of tyranny.

    Surely no one believes the government is going to let any state do that

    If Louisiana did defect from the USA, then they would want money from the rest of us (by way of our Federal Government), since they would not be able to survive on their own as a independent nation.

    Our govenor has been refusing money from the fed. Jindal has refused to implament bozo or to take money for it. Same with issac.

    I know what our law makers are thinking.

    I am not saying this is gona make it thru but all it takes is one, the rest will follow.

    We dont need the NE like they need us. Why would we need money from the govt? We are oil, gas and seafood rich. Just like some states are fruit rich.
    Louisiana is not afraid of hard work. We have a port too. Large one.

    There's been a secession movement up and running here in Alaska for some time now. Don't see it getting anywhere anytime soon, but it's kinda fun to think about.

    Sort of secession in reverse I suppose, but didn't the population of Puerto Rico just vote to request Statehood?
