Daily Caller | White House website deluged with secession petitions





How would Old Glory look with 30 stars instead of 50? As far-fetched as  it may sound, the White House might soon be forced by its own rules to examine  the question.

On Nov.7, the day after President Barack Obama was re-elected, the White  House’s website received a petition asking the administration to allow  Louisiana to secede.

If 25,000 people sign the petition by Dec. 7, it will “require a response” from the Obama administration, according  to published rules of the White House’s online “We the People” program.

The Louisiana petition has collected more than 12,300 signatures in four  days. A separate effort from Texas has 15,400 supporters.

Similar petitions from 18 other states began arriving Nov. 9, bringing the  total — for the moment — to 20.

More.
