If you haven’t yet been to the White House We The People online petition site, you really ought to check it out. In addition to the petitions to allow individual states to secede from the union, there are also petitions to:
Remove “In God We Trust” from the U.S. currency and remove “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance.
Federally Legalize Marijuana
Peacefully grant the City of Atlanta leave to withdraw from the State of Georgia and remain part of the United States
And my personal favorite:
Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them
As of this morning, the petition on Texas seccession had exceed the goal of 25,000 signatures by a lot – 107,716 had signed, although it’s unclear how many of those were Packer fans hoping that would mean that the Cowboys could no longer be in the NFL.
Most of the petitions have gotten just a few thousand signatures or less, but there’s another petition out there that has clearly motivated Americans of every ideological stripe to sign. Close to half a million have signed a petition urging Macy’s to sever its relationship with Donald “march on Washington” Trump.
