A week after the election, some people are upset President Obama was re-elected and are trying to do something about it. Petitions seeking secession from the United States have been filed on behalf of many states on the White House website.
FOX News Radio’s Dave Anthony reports:
President Obama won, but nearly half the country didn’t vote for him and some think if he’s staying, they’re going:
(Texas Resident) “Texas secede. Let’s all, just move the whole state to like, hmm, Australia. They have nice accents.”
There is a movement to secede from the U.S.
(Louisiana Resident)”… I, I feel like that’s a little much.”
(Louisiana Resident) “I think it’s ridiculous.”
More than 60,000 people in Texas alone have signed a petition on the White House’s website.
(Delisi) “I think what people are really saying is they want a smaller and less intrusive federal government.”
Republican strategist Ted Delisi.
There is a counter petition now wanting anyone who signs the secession petition to be deported.
