A White House petition gathering force calls for citizenship to be stripped and exile for anyone who signs a petition in favor of a state´s secession. "Mr. President, please sign an executive order such that each American citizen who signed a petition from any state to secede from the USA shall have their citizenship stripped and be peacefully deported," the full petition reads. The title of the petition is, "WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO: Strip the Citizenship from Everyone who Signed a Petition to Secede and Exile Them." As of this writing, 2,205 have signed the petition;

We need to strip the citizenship and exile anyone who voted for the marxist party.

The headline is deceiving. It implies that the White House issued this petition but that is not the case. Someone else issued the petition and is asking White House to bless it.

23 States are quite a lot. Yes we are that scared of this administration especially now that it considers itself unfettered by Congress. Just ask Pres. Jarrett.

Certainly proves the ignorance of Obamabots who have no comprehension of, or respect for the Constitution. Penalty for excercising their free speech rights?

This is getting fun. Bring us together Saint Obama.
Entertain us with shirtless photos and tales of sex in the military.
Who cares if the payment is a stolen election and four dead Americans.
Don´t look over there. That´s no fun. Look at the little man with his shirt off.

They can´t round up and deport those who are here illegally now. How do the people putting forth this petition think the gov´t is going to strip citizenship and deport those who signed the secession petitions? Maybe they think the gov´t has an arsenal of black helicopters to round up people, but they forget Obama has cut military spending back so far we´re lucky we can get a helicopter to fly David Petraeus to DC to testify before Congress about Benghazi!

This petition shows exactly how these libs,socialists,democrats think. They want the president to be a dictator with the power to make executive orders that do anything they want, to include stripping people of their citizenship. The constitution is just a piece of paper to them. If they had a brain cell, it would be lonesome, but then, they are the product of our public education system

I am with #10. They say they cannot round up and deport those who are here illegally from other countries. But yes, let´s round up those who object to what you and yours are doing to our fair country and ship them out... we have lots of dollars to do that.

But if they ship us all out, who is going to pay the bills? Huh? Huh?

Sounds like Atlas Shrugged, John Galt time to me.

These commies, these birth certificate challenged half-wits wouldn´t last a 30 days if we (and the rest) did pull out.

Harry Reid and Pee-low-see would cut their own throats, and Hollywood would just swoon away.

It´s the conservative, creative middle class (read this Tea Party) that keeps this national ship afloat and the wealthy democraps in Gucci loafers and handbags, and the so-called poor in ham hocks, blow, weed, Bud, abortions (keeping the....down, see Randy Newman here)and flat screen tee-vees.

Anyway, sounds like war to me and the socialists don´t have a clue in what they are getting into.

Talk about no jobs!

Time to clean out Texas. Time to clean out the U.S.

A little history: In the 1950´s and early 60´s the US Dept of State used to take away the citizenship of American expats for the crime of remaining outside the US for more than 5 continuous years. In the mid-60´s the courts ruled that native-born Americans did not receive their citizenship from the government and that therefore the government could not take away that citizenship.

I´ll see your deportation and add Gold Standard for my state. BTW, Montana´s Constitution gurantees Montanans´ gun rights and the attendant right to secede if the federal government attempts to revoke them.

Good times, good times! Or the more appropriate Chinese curse, May you live in interesting Times. Yeehahh. Let ´er rip.

There is a flaw in their logic. "Mr. President" doesn´t exist. Therefore, any action taken by him in the past 4 years or in the 4 years in the future is as illegal as he is.

This talk about secession is getting more stupid as it expands. The most stupid statement has got to be about stripping the citizenship of anyone signing a petition. There´s no basis in law for that and in my opinion that would infringe on the signers freedom of speed rights. A petition is only a request for something to be done.

Secondly, I have seen posts that Texas has the right to secede. That is can´t be true. Texas tried that in the 1860´s and was on the losing side of the war that settled the question of a state´s right to secede.

The special right that only Texas has is that it can split into five states. That would add four states to country and get present day Texas eight more Senators. That right was granted to Texas at the time it was admitted to the Union in 1845.

As posted earlier my opinion of secession by any state would be like curing a headache with the guillotine. I restate that opinion here.

#34 With all respect, if the talk bothers you, you can choose to skip such articles posted. People can dream can´t they? Besides, sometimes in the course of civil discussion - no matter the subject - a great idea gets born. Personally, I find myself enjoying a great many conversations on this board even if I disagree with the initial concept put forth.

We either can sit by and complain bitterly or we can get off our duffs and do something. If it be by secession then so be it. Whatever we do let’s stick together and get it done. Many states have tried as individuals to secede but not since 1861 (unless I am wrong) have several states tried to secede together as a group and stuck to their guns.
"There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free-- if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending--if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained--we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!"
Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775.

Someone once said it better than I could ever express ... let me see ... it´s right on the tip of my tongue - oh, that´s right:
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.

Therefore; whether I agree with secession or not, it is our right. And whatever happened to the quote liberals just adore? You know, ´´I disagree with what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it.´´

I loves me some dead white guys.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
