    In the wake of last week's presidential election, thousands of Americans have signed petitions seeking permission for their states to peacefully secede from the United States. The petitions were filed on We the People, a government website.

    States with citizens filing include 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. Oddly, folks from Georgia have filed twice. Even stranger, several of the petitions come from states that went for President Barack Obama.

    The petitions are short and to the point. For example, a petition from the Volunteer State reads: "Peacefully grant the State of Tennessee to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government." Of all the petitions, Texas has the most signatures so far, with more than 23,000.

    The key to the whole thing: It isn't the states that are filing, it is the citizens filing on the gov website.

    I dont think any of the states wants to bale out California or any other state in trouble, they got themselves into the current mess, they can get themselves out on their own.

    A boycott is not a radical idea. it has been done since man started walking the earth. Human nature says to hurt someone back if they hurt you. Its a survival instinct. Is that wrong?

    As soon as the Texas government issues a new currency, full faith and credit Texas, it will have move value than the crap money in our pocket. Full faith and credit of a governmet do deep in dept that it can never pay. The trend is, future currency of the US will be guns, bullets and freeze-dried food. Metro areas, eat your neighbors.
