Florida Residents Petition White House to Secede From United States

Man, some people really, really can't stand having a black dude for president.

So, in light of Barack Obama resoundingly winning reelection by virtue of both the electoral college and the popular vote and in the process winning traditional GOP strongholds Ohio and Florida, some brave American heroes have decided to stand up to the oppression of a democratically elected president as per the Constitution of the United States of America and decided to ask that president to let them secede from the United States of America because it's totally what Ben Franklin would've done because... he's got bitchin' quotes about revolution and stuff.

A bunch of states, including Florida, have jumped on the White House's website and are using the We the People page (built to help folks start petitions and give constructive feedback on how best to run the government) to ask Obama to let them cede from the Union.


These disheartened Florida patriots want Obama to let them peacefully withdraw from the U.S. so it can create its one new government.

Their reason: Because the federal government has not led us with honor and justice.

Good one, seceders!  

Also, because the Founding Fathers said a bunch of awesome stuff about seceding from the British Empire, who also were led by a black man (little-known fact!):

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

Peacefully grant the State of Florida to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.

We the people of the great state of Florida, do see that in today's world the Federal Government has not led our citizens justly and with honor. We therefore as free men and women of our great state do believe that it is time to take matter upon ourselves to ensure our continued freedom, and to enact our own laws and here buy govern ourselves without the federal government's involvement in our internal matters from this day forward.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Benjamin Franklin: 1775

Essentially, these brave souls are asking Obama and the federal government to take their unemployment benefits thousands count on, their Medicaid the state's elderly count on, their protection provided by the armed forces, funding to help eventual hurricane and tropical storm victims, money to help fix roads and bridges, and all the other things these free men and women use on a daily basis but apparently can do without because the president is a black and Ben Franklin once said something about temporary safety.

The Florida petition, which needs to reach 20,000 signatures by December, so far has 6,454 signatures.

Hang in there, heroes. We're rooting for you to secede really, really hard.

No, really.

Does the author of this article have any sort of education? And why does he talk like he is four years old?

The person who wrote this article is obviously a racist himself. I live in the heart of of the south, among the most conservatives in the country, and I have never ONCE heard any one of them mention that they don't like Obama for his race. This is quite possibly the most ignorant article I have read in a while.

Lol is all I can say...seriously?  It will NEVER happen. A stupid waste of time and energy.

Those of you say that this petition to secede has anything to do with race are seriously dense.  If you cannot be honest with yourself about why other people would disagree with and vote against this president, then don't expect to be taken seriously by others. Don't let the fact that this president is the most divisive president ever and millions believe that so strongly that secession is actually a viable option to them sway you from believing otherwise. It's not like the facts entered into your thought process ever.  Keep on living in denial.  Your propensity for self-deception is just incredible.  Now take your meds.

Finally some blow back.  I guess you can only stretch false hypostheses so far.

You are obviously ignorant if you believe that this reaction is due to the fact Obama is "black." Florida is not the only state either so are you going to rag on all the others? Yes, some people may not like having a colored President but this has nothing to do with it. This reaction is brought on by angry people in this country who are sick of being lied to and having things covered up by people we are supposed to trust. If this action is needed, then so be it. But to ignorantly post and disrespect the people who are fighting for their constitutional rights makes you a fool. Not only that but I am sure that some of these "brave American heros" that signed these petitions you seem to casually mock gave you the freedoms you have today so I suggest you consider that in your next ignorant post. If you enjoy being lied to then feel free to continue in your arrogant ways in blissful ignorance. Do not "talk trash" about something you obviously do not know about.

You know...no one can tell me this isn't a race issue.  Bush served 2 terms, one of which we didn't even vote for, and everyone was ok with that....no one wanted to leave then...but now the country is so terrible because of one man??  These people are racist and im sick of the whole thing!

I'm not a Bush follower so his statements are toilet paper . The bottom line is the electoral votes have spoken ...and by a lot. Sit back and watch this country self destruct...one state at a time. Personally, I have no objections for Florida or Texas going solo! The stance of being a team player no longer exists which is sad..."all for one should be the new slogan of the USA."

This is not about Obama's color!!! This is about his usurping the Constitution and violating laws. His corruption and his proposed treaties with the U.N.

Barack Obama has double-crossed the American people for four years.  He's hoodwinked them, relied on the uneducated voter to pu thim  in office, played "masses are asses" card for way too long.  He watched 4 U.S. Citizens being murdered while he refused to send help, then went to bed, packed his bags and flew to Vegas to avoid answering questions that would show he committed treason.  Heheld that information, PLUS the Petraeus story, AND the drone fired on by Iran on 11/1 until after the election.  When are going to open your blind eyes and see this man is a liar, of the first orde?.  He's an arrogant manipulator, power-hungry ego-maniac and a self-proclaimed dictator.  He will NOT be confirmed on January 16th.  It's not going to happen!

Sounds to me that there people who lost and are mad that the county is comprised of " minorities"... How dare they have a strong enough voice. So, why the race should not be use, it is, in more than one way. If I recall,the mortgage industry went belly up starting in 2007 which is when the economy started the recession...that was Bush...just an example. Everyone needs to go back to 1980's and put their smart pants on.

Wow really why don't you do some research before you post ignorant  blogs like this. The reason why many of these states are seceding because the corruption of our government is getting out of hand. Obama has been taking away our civil liberties ever since hes been in office and everyone has been blindly support him except these brave states who decide to take a stand. Instead of posting trash like this look up the NDAA, Monsanto, Goldman Sachs,Hank Paulson, Bradley Manning, Michael R Taylor, and I could go on. Stop being a sheep and do some research. Sorry if I'm offensive but I really do care about our country and people need to wake up!

Yes.. you are an idiot for saying that this would be because the president is black.. Especially since the president isn't even really black. Regardless of race the President has not be a "great" leader by any means. Seems to be that you are using "reverse racism". Sad for the people trying to play a "race card" after four years. It's not the case for most. The country has obviously been going down hill and continues to do so with Obama... its not a matter of race, it's a matter of knowing what is going on with the country and wanting to change it. And people stop saying "ohhh it's because of Obama".. in a way, yes.. it is. But the fact of the matter is, no matter if it was Obama as president or some other person who isn't having a strong enough effect as a leader over the past four years - person doesn't matter, its what they are doing for the country that matters.

Everyone wants to blame Obama, what for? What problems do we have NOW that weren't the cause of Bush Admin? People should ask themselves "How great of a job would u you do trying to correct the chaos done by another. Obama is not perfect, but he is at least trying to find a solution to a problem he did not cause. If he were a white republican, would people still feel the sane way? Fyi, he is half black. People need to stop associating part black with full black...apparently our country has not come as far as we thing....

Based on your very first sentence you are obviously a racist bigot so your writings are meaningless.

I would gladly secede with Florida.  This has absolutely nothing to do with being a racist it has to do with a socialist bigot being in the white house who is the worst president with the most destructive policies in American history.

If this was because Obama is black, why not secede 4 years ago? Your logic is faulty.

I propose that Palm Beach, Broward, Dade and Monroe counties secede from the state of Florida and join with the United States of America...The state of Florida del Sur...

Ahh..what a wonderful group of patriots to start this on Veterans day. Actually, the way this state runs elections we should be thankful the other 49 states haven't demanded we leave.

 @james089 The nazi collaborators said the same things in German occupied France during WWII.  The vast majority of those signing petitions are people who live in rural areas of this country.  We are NOT dependent on the police, hospitals, or other government "services".  We are  of several races and creeds (including Native American) and we are armed and virtually self-sufficient.  And we would LOVE to see whoever comes to "round us up".  THAT would be a very foolish thing to attempt. This is not France, and we are not disarmed city-dwelling co-dependent indigents.  Take a look at the map.  We grow all the food.  If the power suddenly goes off, we will not be the ones killing and looting each other over basic supplies, genius.

@gatorgirl870 It's hard to take someone seriously arguing against racism when they use the term "colored President".

 @danbarrios91 Thank you for not being ignorant. It has nothing to do with his color it is a right we have as Americans and people are using the little freedoms we have left.

@bcconfidential It's because of so many people like you making up their own alternate reality ignoring all facts that disprove their points why Romney lost so big. Still in denial also. Obama was reelected, there is no Benghazi conspiricy (intestingly you ignore the fact that 46 US diplomatic personell died in attacks on US diplomatic buildings under the previous president) and we will rejoyce in the confirmation of Obama on Jan16th. Let's hope that Michelle will run in 2016 followed by Sasha in 2024 and Mahlia in 2032 to complete our conversion to a Libral socialist marxist muslim utopia!

 Well, you can't blame the murders of four U.S. citizens on U.S. Soil while our president and secretary of state watched real time...Bush's fault.  Bush would say Obama has committed treason.  And he has.

Apparently not when we still don't spell check or proof read before we hit the send button! Bush did NOT have more American's out of work; in fact more minorities were working during his administration!! Also there were less people on welfare and food stamps. Not that Bush was a great President but yes, better than Obama since our rights as individual’s were not being taken away and more of us had work!

 @virgodanie81

 Well, here's one you can't twist to be Bush's fault.  Obama sat in the White House watching four American heroes being murdered while he refused to send help, because it would "hurt" his election message that Al Quada was under control. He's a sociopathic liar and he used the naive American people for his own gain.   He has blood on his hands, and Bush would never have committed treason!  Obama needs to be indicted.  Now!
