The reelection of President Obama has caused many to question if the next four years will get any better. The President’s reelection margins were much smaller than his victory in 2008. This dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs has caused a growing number of citizens to petition the federal government and ask to secede. Is it even possible to secede? Most of these petitions are being filed here (https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/); an official petition page on the White House’s Official site. Within a 30-day period every petition will garner a response if it reaches 25,000 signatures. A week after the President’s reelection there are approximately 69 petitions with over 675,000 petitioners.
