that have mushroomed to  states moving to secede.
The first petition came in from Louisiana the day after Obama’s re-election,
and since then a chorus of others have issued their grievances.
under White House rules stated in its “We the People” program, if 25,000 people sign on by December 7th,
a response must be issued.
Just a few days after submitting,
that number has been reached by the petitions from Texas, Louisiana, and Georgia — with Texas closing in on 90,000.
Why Texas Could Probably Secede
As of this writing,
the Texas petition to peacefully “withdraw” from the United States via the White House’s open petition webpage is up to 62,481 signatures,
on its way to tripling the required names needed to trigger a response from the Obama administration.
