Louisiana Residents Petition to Secede

On Nov. 6, Americans voted to return Barack Obama to the White House; then on Nov. 7, some folks in Louisiana petitioned the White House to peaceably withdraw their state from the Union.


According to the White House website, the petition was created by Michael E. (full last name not provided) of Slidell, La., the day after the election and has since been electronically signed by a few hundred people, most – but not all – of whom hail from the Pelican State.

“We petition the Obama administration to: Peacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government,” the petition reads.

It continues, “As the Founding Fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776: ‘When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.’”

    May we all be so bold!

  2. If the government-addicted sheeple would ever have their government-needles pulled from their arms, they would wake up and all demand freedom.

      To many people are waiting at the government trough wait for the next bucket of slop. I wonder what they will do when the buckets quit coming?

      • Well, first off, the immediate reaction of any drug-addicted person to being deprived of his drugs will be an extreme reaction. But after the habit has been kicked, only then will they see how bad off they were.

        One thing for sure, I would keep plenty of bullets on hand.

    Hooray for Louisiana. Now we need a whole bunch more of the red states to follow suit. If their “bread basket” states leave the union, what are the blue states going to eat? More of odumbass’s bull?

    For those who recognize the necessity of separation from Marxist/socialist birds should google The League of The South.

      Didn’t mean to post twice, but the first post was being held by discus and I did not expect it to be posted.

    And now TEXAS has joined them. That should pass a loud message to Congress and the
    White House. Can we still call it that?

    Jigger Back in the wood Pile. Gona be missing more stuff.

  8. Unfortunately, the blue states have joined in making it a sham. I’m from Louisiana and I signed it on Friday around 3:45 pm, in less than 2 days the signatures are at 7956. I did notice however, that people from all over the nation are signing it. I would think that would void the petition. I guess I will have to go sign the petitions from the blue states now.

    SECEDE TEXAS, Where do I sign!!!

  10. simpletony1 says:

    All red states should cecede. There is nothing in the “States of America’s” future for any red blooded American who wants a “United States” back. It’s far past time. Actually, its the bad citizenry and congress who we need to cleanse ourselves of…people who voted for obama because they’ll “get a cell phone” and a congress that actually allowed an illegal, muslim occupy our former highest office in the land. It’s time.

    • Bruce Jacobs says:

      I have had several dreams/night mares about secession of some states. They formed the North American Republic (NAR). Another civil war followed, but it was mostly a standoff. Those who refused to work (generations of welfare) were very “politely asked” to leave the NAR and were escorted to US areas and forced across. Illegals were also “moved” to their homelands or the US. The UN tried to intercede, but got their azz kicked by the NAR. This could very easily wind up being more truth than fiction.

      • Phillip_in_TX says:

        That is one of the reasons I invited all the gun manufactures and ammo manufactures to come to Texas. Once we and Louisiana secede, we can protect our borders. Since the rest of the country will be living in paradise, they won’t need any weapons.

  11. Ultimately, secession will not accomplish anything UNLESS such an effort is established upon Yahweh’s immutable morality as codified in His perfect law (Psalm 19:7-11). Otherwise, we just end up where we find ourselves today or worse.

    For more concerning how Yahweh’s moral law applies today, read “Law and Kingdom: Their Relevance Under the New Covenant.” Click on my name, then our website. Then go to our Online Book Page, and scroll down to “Law and Kingdom.”

    Ah great Louisiana I am proud of you and only wish that Oklahoma would do the same thing so that we can survive without the Federal government and all the dishonesty, corruption and theft that is being perpetrated at the highest levels…

  13. polaris says:

    That makes me want to move there.

  14. Maybe that’s where I’ll retire-NH has fallen to the SOCIALISTS!

  15. Rose says:

    I’m an Illinoisian who is planning on moving to Texas soon, where do I sign up to secede ? Go Texas & Louisiana ! If all the red states do secede from the Union, who would fund all the free stuff the liberals get ? The rest of the BLUE states would fall apart. Think about this one, Obama got 158 % of the vote in Florida, and 108 % in Ohio ! What’s with that ? Can you say FRAUDULANT !

    • Phillip_in_TX says:

      Welcome Rose.

      Psalms 2:

      1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

      2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against יהוה, and against his anointed, saying,

      3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
