Secession petitions

Ugh, so in our post-election society (although with people talking about the future elections are we really ever post-election?) I have heard a lot of stuff about petitions.

According to the Washington Post “Petitions have been filed for Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.”

Louisiana has around 33,000 signatures and Alabama has around 27,000 — in reality this is nothing. The white house beer recipe had 12,240 signatures and legalizing pot had 74,000.

Also Internet petitions mean nothing — we don’t know how many actual people (and how many of them are over 18) have signed. I’m also betting that a lot of the people who signed really don’t want to succeed and just want attention.

Call me when a state legislature starts talking about this.
