Wow, I just looked and someone started a petition for Illinois to secede!!! Of course, it only has 1,681 signatures so far. But, that would be a little embarrassing for Obama, wouldn't it?

I do not believe that, that would embarrass Obama at all. In this Union, it is a given that people are allowed to speak their minds, have a right to protest, sign petitions and make fools of themselves if they so wish. Assuming they would really wish to secede, they would certainly be outnumbered by Obama supporters and realistic progressives, who I suspect would tell the petitioners to get out, and "close the door" on their way out.

Hmmm...I wonder how many of those people actually live in Texas. You can put your names on those petitions even for states you don't live in. According to this: www.unc.edu

Since Sunday, "the average signer has signed more than two petitions."

Besides, if being a sore loser in a presidential campaign were a reason, you wouldn't think Texas would be one to go. Romney got 57% of the vote in Texas, but he got 73% in Utah. And over 65% in Wyoming and Oklahoma. Those are the states you would think would leave. I bet Texas has more in common with the rest of the US than Utah does.

You are right. On the Texas petition, there are signatories from all over the country and even one from Tokyo. You can actually see every one who signs a petition and where they are from.

Yes there are. Guess they'll have to amend their process. Lot of Texas signers, though.
