Petition for the State of Louisiana to Secede

Posted by   + Show Post

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/peacefully-grant-state-louisiana-withdraw-united-states-america-and-create-its-own-new-government/1wrvtngl


we petition the obama administration to:

Peacefully grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.

As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776:

"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."

"...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government..."

Created: Nov 07, 2012


What do you think of this? Is it legitimate?  Anyone have additional information?

Point out that their government checks, food stamps etc will stop and we will never hear about this again.

 People make petitions for stupid crap all the time it doesn't mean they get anywhere with it. It will never happen.

well...if that happens then it would probably be better on us, since the government won't have to fund anything in lousiana anymore
