I'm an American and I'm not leaving. I am willing to talk about cutting free some dead weight, though.
They have a month to get 25,000 signatures or it won't even be looked at, so I agree with you, unfortunately. There are tons of ridiculous petitions on there.The petition site is totally goofy. It appears anyone can post anything. It's someone's opinion only. It is not binding. Read through all the silly petitions that are found there. There is even a petition to outlaw Jesus and Moses. That one has thousands of votes (I think 33k, if not mistaken),
Here is the page outlawing Jesus, et. al.
These petition numbers on O's White House webpage are completely bogus. I live in KY and the petition to secede was created on 11/10/12, 2 days ago. I just got onto the site to sign and it stated I have already done so. This is total BS as I have not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was taught to me over 50 years ago by a history teacher.Of course, my own great state of OK
Here's the link to the rest of the petitions
I'm wondering if I can sign more than one petition to help out other states.
