Petitions For The Rest Of Us ...

If you're a patriotic American, proud to be part of the best country in the world and disgusted by all the secession BS, here's a petition is for you:

Keep the United States United.

Times have been tough for all of us; some states are frustrated to the point of petitioning for secession, but now is not the time to be divided.Their actions can only harm our country. The best way to help the American people is not through bipartisan bickering, secession, or the general lack of cooperation that runs rampant in our country. The best and only way to help the American people is by continuing to be “one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

3562 signatures so far.  Seriously?  That one should have a million signatures.

Here's a petition to deport everyone that signed a petition to withdraw their state from the United States of America. 20,274 signatures as of this writing.

Also this one, to strip the citizenship from everyone who signed a petition to secede and exile them.

And another "kick the malcontents out" petition with a little more verbiage:

The United States fought a bloody civil war to decide once and for all to remain a UNITED States of America.

Any person who signs a petition for secession of their state, should be deemed to have forfeited their rights as an American.

The person may select a person on the waiting list to get into this country from another land. The person who signed the petition is to physically trade places with that person who wishes to be an American.

Real Americans appreciate other Americans.

If these so-called American want to leave - let them.

We need people who want to be here.

That one is just getting started, with 110 signatures as of this writing.  

Who can argue with this idea?  Force all states to pay their portion of the national debt before they can secede from the union.  4968 signatures.  Hmm, looks like the secessionists haven't (so far) signed up to pay their share of the bills before turning their backs on the USA. 

Here's a refrain for our secessionist friends -- one I'm sure they wholeheartedly agreed with 42 years ago when America was whiter and Ernest Tubb's song was on the radio:


It's still America, guys, love it or leave it -- but pay your bill before you go.

Great information (4.00 / 1)
I signed it. Thank you

You and about a thousand other people! (4.00 / 1)
But it is still over 20,000 signatures behind all those secession petitions.

Work harder and work smarter!

Those petitions are worthless. (4.00 / 1)
Do those idiots realize that secession is nigh-impossible?
