There's a Petition To Let Florida Secede From the Union

This idea worked out so well last time.
Love it or leave it.

It appears there are at least a few thousand Floridians out there who hate the United States of America so much in the wake of Obama's reelection that they want to pull Florida out of the Union.

WhiteHouse.gov has this neat feature where citizens can submit petitions. If they get a certain amount of signatures with in the allotted time the White House actually issues an official response.

Well, after Obama's reelection several petitions asking for the rights for states (including Florida) to secede have popped up.

Here's Florida's:
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
At the moment, 6,354 people have signed the petition. Though, if you scroll down you'll see there are a lot of people not actually from Florida signing on.

Come on guys, that's sort of passive aggressive and rude. I mean, I'm sure these out-of-staters are signing this because they hate Obama or whatever, but it kind of comes off a little like, "Yeah, screw Florida. Let 'em leave."

For those real Floridians who actually signed this: Um, do you really want a President Rick Scott? Think about that, OK.

Anyway, if anyone wants to start a petition that would allow for South Florida to secede from the rest of the state, we'll totally sign that.

IT IS NOT THE WHITE PEOPLE WHO ARE THE RACISTS TODAY!  BLACK PEOPLE ARE THE HATE FILLED RACISTS, EVERY INCIDENT THAT COMES ALONG TODAY THAT CLEARLY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RACISM IS DELIBERATELY MADE RACIST BY THE BLACKS  SO THAT THEY CAN USE THESE INCIDENTS FOR THEIR OWN PROFIT IN ANY WAY THEY CAN.

WHITE'S COULDN'T CARE LESS ABOUT WHAT COLOR THE HALFBREED PRESIDENT IN ( OUR WHITE HOUSE ) IS, WHAT WE WANTED WAS A PRESIDENT THAT WAS COMPETENT, AND QUALIFIED, A PRESIDENT WHO CARED ABOUT AMERICA, AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, ( THAT DID NOT HAPPEN!!! ).

I talked to hundreds of people black and white, The Majority of the Whites, Were worried about the Country and the Economy, color didn't Enter the Picture, The Majority of the Blacks Wanted a man Who Looked Black in ( OUR WHITE HOUSE ) SIMPLY BECAUSE HE LOOKED LIKE A BLACK MAN, ( THIS IS MONUMENTALLY STUPID BY ANYONE'S STANDARDS ).  And if you Hate Filled Racists ( Think for One Tiny Minute That a Half White Black Appearing president CARES MORE ABOUT BLACKS, EXCEPT FOR HOW THEY CAN BE MANIPULATED FOR THEIR VOTES, REFER BACK TO ( MONUMENTALLY STUPID ) THAT PRETTY MUCH COVERS IT.

                                                      HAVE A NICE DAY    YEAH RIGHT.

          this shit is stupid why does all 50 states want to sucede from the united states. IF all 50 states sucede from the UNITED STATES  then there WILL BE WAR, A MESSED UP ECONOMY, NO MILITARY, OUT BREAKS, and MORE. what about the U.S. money, all 50 states will have to remake and adapt to another countrys money like japan, china, or philipine money.

          Barack Obama did do a LITTLE to help the U.S. so dont say shit that he did not cause he did.

          TRUE OBAMA should not be elected, but that does not mean we will have to sucede from each other, we the people still have enough future to vote for 20 other more presidents in the next 1000 years or so, think about our future, our children, think about what kind of war zone and breaking hell will come if all 50 states sucede.

 

    I PROMISE YOU TO ALL 50 STATES PLANNING TO SUCEDE, THERE WILL BE HELL COMING..........................

SORRY THIS HAS nothing to do with the persident being Black. This has to do with fearing your goverment. When you fear your goverment you lost your freedom! Obama care and the tax hikes our going to kill the small buiness and more jobs will be lost. Then who is Obama going to blame then. Way did Bill Clinton Help in the campion then step down. I getting so tired of hearing its because he black that is what I hear someone dont get there way.

This liberal propaganda rag of a news source needs to be left to it's own demise. I recommend that anyone on here who sees Kyle Munzenrieder for the perverted, traitorous communist it is to stop giving it the time of day. Right-minded people can always start their own news source, and thus rid ourselves of this sort of filth, and send the message that we are not at the mercy of their distorted mis-information they call "news".

You people are a bunch of sick f---ks. One can obviously see that we are living in the last days.  Some of you whites are so filled with hatred for having a black president reelected, and that is the reason because he is a black president .You'd better soften your hearts because  your large homes, cars, bank accounts ,won't save your asses from hell.  A bunch of ignorant ass people.

I see nothing good coming from the catastrophe he will create. I am a Palm Beach County native 3rd generation. We don't like you import assholes nor do we appreciate your yankee votes.  We really don't need you. So don't feel like we are beholdended to your good graces. You make yourselves feel good but you are blind and are going to kill your own people.

I am dumbfounded by your blindness.

We were cheated by Chicago Mob politics. We need to stand up. I know I will if needed.

God Bless the Constitution and The USA

I pray that Israel will defend itself but I am afraid under this administration they will get no support from their US ally. When will you understand that the Democrats do NOT care about you?

It is all about power.

God does not figure in to their platform or their ideals, God created both of our states and if we follow his will we will prosper.

This administration is evil and unjust, we need to fight it, for the sake of Americans and Jews and the World. These Autocrats need to be stopped

I'm a native Floridian, so when you say "For those Real Floridians", I consider myself to be one. I had to relocate out of state when our talking heads in Tallahassee decided that they'd rather protect the environment and cater to tourism and Northern money, than create jobs and create a sustainable lifestyle for their residents. I currently live in Texas, where I'm doing very well.

 

I signed the petition for Texas, as I feel that we have the resources in my adopted home state, to sustain ourselves just fine. We have the 12th largest economy in the world, we would be the 15th largest country in the world, we currently process 85% of the US oil supply, have our own agriculture, livestock, the worlds largest medical center, and the worlds largest inland port, ect, ect,... 

 

Being a native Floridian, I figured I'd sign Florida's petition as well. It would be nice to see Florida again as it was in the "Good Ole Days" before it turned into what it is today, an entitlement state that's gone blue from foreigners and northerners that are there only to drain the state dry of its resources before moving on to another state.

 

This has little to do with the election, Mr. Munzenrieder, the election just cemented what most hard working Americans felt. It's not just rednecks, republicans, racists, ect, ect,.. obviously those people are for this as well, however, it's also doctors, lawyers, and hard working Americans that are tired of seeing Washington dictate how their money is spent, and seeing a national deficit that continues to grow at rates that we'll never be able to pay back! We want to see an America that's just as great for our children as it was for us!

 

This "Real Floridian" was born in Orlando, FL. I wasn't born in Puerto Rico, Cuba, Haiti, South America, or New York. I AM a real Floridian and I want the best for a homeland that I can no longer live in, as I was priced out and run off by my own state.

It's true, like Georgia in 1787, states have the right not to pay taxes, until their grand juries are working properly, under "TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION" auspices.....but, it's your local grand juries that secure or represent your rights, everytime they don't work properly, you're unrepresented, your rights are unsecured....secession won't help the real problem one iota, it'll worsen it......get the Unification Science Upgrades (at www.PRLog.Org/10439874) or Repass the STILL-DUE 1776 Declaration of Independence (Article 18's "the benefit of trial by jury shall not be denied" is the FIRST U.S> COnstitution, still-due under the last articels of the 1777 Articles of Confederation and 1787 U.S. Constitution)...anything else can only worsen your problems by 3X+ GUARANTEED  RCCFM: Always(c): Dr. Eric USRecovery@gmail.com www.JoinUSRecovery.Blogspot.com ("Free Legal Assistance") and www.Repass1776Declaration.Blogspot.com

If you want to "Secede From Something", secede from the International Crime that's occupying your local grand jury and preventing the criminals in higher office from being tried and convicted for their crimes....no seccession from the union required...in fact, it's the Union that gives you the right to do so......the "new one" won't, bank on it, otherwise, they would've already done it, as you paid them to do (their job as government employees) and you wouldn't have the problems you're having....that secession won't correct, it'll only worsen (3X+ worse, now proven, before it happens, with Unification Science)...RCCFM: Always(c): Dr. Eric  USRecovery@Gmail.com  Those wanting to secede aren't you friends or your government employees, beware..

THE ONLY "COMPROMISE" THAT ISN'T U.S. SURRENDER/SUICIDE AT 3X+ THE RATE OF THIS PROPER FUNCTION....{As "Cuts" are thefts of already-paid-benefits-and premiums, multiplying real costs 3X+, and "tax hikes" are double jeopardy, convictionless inoluntary servitude and slavery, pretended authority legislations at 3X+ the real costs, THERE IS NO REAL ALTERNATIVE}

{WITHOUT THE NEW UNIFICATION SCIENCE UPGRADES; OR THE RE-PASSAGE OF THE OLD/ORIGINAL 1776 DECLARATION OF INDEPNDENCE, ONLY 3X+ THE CRIME AND DEBT EXPANSION CAN BE PRODUCED BY ANY "PRETENDED AUTHORITY LEGISLATION"...Like the original recording that "Digital/Chrome" captures, before repeated-plays/environmental-damage creates static/error that makes you miss what's said or think something else is said, everything else can only result in more preventable debt and crime increases, tripling the debt, instead of eliminating it, as doing so will accomplish, only doing so will accomplish}

It's the same problem we had with Reagan's administration.....the "Real Republicans" and the "unreal Republicans" of post-WWII.  The problem is, basically, an educational one (and reinforced by earlier "proper support and defense lapses" prior to WWII).....what isn't understood is that Social Security was based upon "1904-Relativity" and that anything truly-scientific is reprovable, meaning that "Support and Defense of the Constitution" REQUIRES "Support and Defense of the new numbers" (Real Growth).  IT'S EXACTLY THE SAME WITH THE UNIFCATION SCIENCE UPGRADES (the 1st of 9+ Upgrades the deficit cannot be eliminated without being at www.PRLog.Org/10439874).  Just as failures to Support and Defend Social Security ("done right") can more eadily be seen to be "Support and Defense of the Constitution" ("4+4=8"), so too "Support and Defense of Unification Science Upgrades" are Support and Defense of the Constitution, and opposition thereto is opposition to the Constitution (Pretended Authority acts that REPROVABLY can only expand crime and debt).....it's why the first order of business is to either get the Unification Science Upgrades implemented (so that you can know what the real numbers are, right now, instead of trying to legislate upon the bogus numbers of sabotage and dysfunction we have, or, otherwise, pass the STILL-DUE 1776 Declarration of Independence who's article 18 ""the benefit of trial by jury shall not be denied") makes the difference between "valid legislation" (crime and debt eliminating) and "pretended authority legislation" (crime and debt increasing) crystalline....the simplified definition of "what constitutes a government" from the founding fathers themselves....continuing to legislate upon "4+4=104" can only worsen the problems, now proven scientificlaly, by 3X+ the rate of this proper function.....www.Repass1776Declaration.Blogspot.com RCCFM: Always(c): Dr. Eric USRecovery@Gmail.com Everything else is the treasonable Legislation of the 1860s Civil War, done all over again...

Anyhing else, everything else and you've been recruited by the same Intenational Crime Enemies that're stealing a trillion+ a year in interest alone from you now....RCCFM: Always(c): Dr. Eric USRecovery@Gmail.com

 @glynn803 

 

This is probably the dumbest-ass comment I've seen all week.

 

The establishment doesn't give a fuck about black people. Any more than they care about houseless people, asian people, middle easterners, and even white people.

 

There's more money in screwing over everyone rather than just black people.

 

And if you think everyone in the USA is racist towards black people, you might need to take a break from the internet and take your head out of your ass. There are hate crimes from blacks to whites, too.

 @dhuff1  @FLNativeTXResident - If you ever feel the need to leave what Florida has turned into, consider Texas, our economy in Houston is strong, and our climate is similar to that of Central Florida. I concede that our beaches aren't as nice though. Personally, I'd rather have subpar beaches and a good job, than no money and a beautiful beach.
