If you go by headline alone, it would seem that 15 states want to secede from the good ol' U.S. of A., but that's truly not the case. This Examiner.Com article grabs attention with the title, but the fact of the matter is that these states will most likely never secede. Some insignificant people who are angry at the recent election results filed petitions in these states; Nothing more.
By the day after Obama's re-election, several petitions were filed for the following states to secede from the United States:
Louisiana, Texas, Montana, North Dakoa, Indiana, Mississippi, Kentucky, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, Colorado, Oregon and New York.
Of course the petitioners are simply living pipe dreams in belief that they will ever get enough signatures to make a difference. And if these petitions did happen to garner enough signatures to make to their state officials, it's highly unlikely that there will be any true secessions.
To be clear, secession is an act of treason. So it seems strange that those who claim to be "patriotic" are among the groups who want to secede; All over four more years of President Barack Obama. It truly doesn't seem like intelligence is powering this particular movement.
