President Barack Obama's re-election has triggered a surge in secession petitions posted on the White House "We The People" website, ironically created by the Obama White House to give all Americans a way to engage the government on issues that matter to them. The latest New York Daily News story posted at 11:59 P.M. EDT states that the requests have been filed on behalf of more than 20 states.
But this movement is so viral, the Daily News totals were soon superseded. One of the latest counts, maintained on Stormfront, showed 43 states are represented. And one of them is Alaska. The Alaska petition was launched by Paul M. of Anchorage. Out of 25,000 signatures required to trigger an official White House response, 3700 have been obtained as of November 13th at 10:15 AM Alaska Time. The link for Alaska:
Note that you must have a whitehouse.gov account to sign petitions. A link to create an account is at the petition site.
The text of the petition:
There is a commonly held belief across Alaska, that the US Constitution has been set aside, and other then ourselves, there are no protections to the liberty and freedoms we are to have as our continued inheritance since the formation of the Union of the "several States". Our main "goal" is a legal vote and ballot; one that was not given in 1958 and was in violation of International Law and Treaty. Alaskans were robbed of the choices we were to have as a non-self-governing territory, and steam-rolled into the current classification of a State. The Native population of Alaska, in a large percentage, did not even receive a ballot because of the Federal Voting Rights Act in place. Alaskans now seek to a statewide free election to decide whether Alaska should be a free and Independent Nation.
Even if the goal of 25,000 signatures for Alaska is reached, there is no guarantee the White House will respond. The We The People website states that the administration reserves the right to ignore petitions that fall outside the limited purpose of the We the People platform, or otherwise violate its participation rules.
Links for all the other states' petitions, grouped by region, can be found on this Stormfront page. However, because Stormfront can become publicly unavailable without warning, commonly because their servers get saturated, I've posted the link to each state's secession petition below, after the jump (although some states have more than one petition, I only list one for each state):
