Are they trying to tell South Carolina something? Just asking.

There are petitions for other states, too:

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

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

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

Allow Oregon to vote on and leave the Union peacefully and remain an ally to the Nation.

North Dakota just elected a new United States Senator. And they want to give that up?

Ditto, Indiana.

Created: Nov 10, 2012

And it already has 1409 signatures.

Someone in Mississippi needs to work on their cut and paste skills.

Isn’t Kentucky a commonwealth? Just asking.

Maybe if the rest of us quietly tip toe away and take our federal dollars with us they won’t notice. Nah.

Is this a great country, or what?
