Petition to Let Florida Secede Headed to Obama
Similar petitions were set up for other states, but only eight made the 25,000 threshold. Florida had the third most signature behind only Louisiana (37,430) and Texas (119, 617).
Of course, a lot of the people signing the petition weren't Florida. Which means they either really hate Obama and support the idea of states being able to secede after his reelection, or they just don't want Florida to be part of the union anymore.
We're not sure exactly how the White House will respond. Obviously we're not expecting anything to actually come of this. We think a simple "LOL! No." would suffice.
Though, we still stand 100 percent our petition to let South Florida secede from the rest of this state.
