Just saw this and I did a search, I can't find anyone talking about it on ATS.
If so, please shred.

Can this work?
Will this work?

If so, wow, right?

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

As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776:

"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."

"...Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government..."

Actually this would be illegal for 2 different standpoints.
1-in 1869 the Supreme Court ruled in Texas v White that when Texas and other states joined the United States that they entered into an "an indissoluble relation." The ruling stated that it could only happen with a mutual consent of the state and the federal government.
I seriously doubt the federal government would allow it.
2-There are also some questions on the constitution in multiple places. Article 6 Section 3, Article 1 Section 10, and Article 4 Section 3

If they somehow did leave, I would also want them to pay for 100% of all federal government equipment and land. Not sure if Texas could pay for the NASA base and still keep their economy

I hardly think that a state such as Louisiana would be missed anyways to be honest if it left!!


Is there anything worthy about the state of Louisiana anyways?
I cannot think of a single thing worthy from them or any of their bordering states that is of any worth to America anyways.


Farewell,,,

Two words: Mardi Gras.

Yes, all those beads would be sorely missed. The horror!

I wonder if they would take their crayfish gumbo as well? Unspeakable travesty!

Seeing as they consume a whole lot of federal funds, well good luck to them.


I was thinking the same thing. Of course, TX is the only state which can legally secede, so they need a violent overthrow to do it anyway, but if they do, at least the rest of us won't have to continue to support them. It would be funny if they did, how fast they'd be calling for foreign aid from us.

I say we let them go, then invade and take all the resources, secure the ports, and turn them into a vassal state. (not really, but I wonder if they had thought about their lack of money and lack of military power.

The founding fathers recognized the states rights to nullify unconstitutional laws and even secede.
So yeah, I'd say they are more American than the current administration.

Red states do suckle quite a bit from the Federal teat and then cry and say they want to secede.

Hey, they'd be doing me a favor. No more paying for their welfare and watching them half-ass their educational systems and suppress the rights of gays, etc.


You're delusional. All the blacks and Hispanics would move on up to your state to get their handouts, and bankrupt you even quicker.

This is the "real" America: If you don't like diversity, throw everything down and resign. If necessary, disband the US altogether


Those dumbos don't even know how UN-AMERICAN they actually are....hilarious since this country was founded based on diversity, free speech, free opinion etc... And then they cite the founding fathers...what a disgrace...



Yep, throw out the "diversity" defense. So old and tired that one. "DIversity" doesn't work - as the UK. Those who want diversity want everyone else to think like they do, so that in itself is the OPPOSITE of diversity. Obama is a socialist, and he wants very bad things for this country. It doesn't make me racist or intolerant. It makes me aware of the facts and opposed to them.

If it came to that? Then I suppose another Civil War would be the end result. Thankfully that is currently not an applicable notion because the vast majority of Americans do not support such extremist notions as secession.

~Heff



This petition will never see daylight...... nothing will come of it.
------------------

However, if the "entitlements" to the people ever cease, THEN we might have a Civil War on hand.

But in the mean time, we'll all trudge through our daily life, griping and complaining, trying to get by the best way we can.

If Louisiana leaves, that'd just make 56 states, right?



or how about. . . .

Great! People from Louisiana would need a passport to come to America, but illegals coming across the border still wouldn't!



Beezeer, there are only 50 states. If they leave, there will be 49. And you are right, they will need passports to come to the US unless they do like the illegals do, which they will once they are completely over run once they lose the US protection. Man talk about self fulfilling prophecy!


I may be mistaken, but I think beezer was referring to when Obama stated the US having "57 states" during his 2008 campaign.
One of his many gaffs that the MSM over looks......


But, it may still be 50 if Louisiana leaves and Puerto Rico makes it official.
If not, then it will be 51 states soon if all goes well.......

On day two Louisiana wakes up with a mean hangover
and realizes it blew all of it's money the night before.
Quietly asks the Feds for money and to forget about
what they said on day one.

Again, and it is unbelievable how people are allowed to post such garbage.

The OP's post is not true, misleading and the title should be edited as "Some individual from Louisiana logged into the White House website attempting to start a petition to secede from the union."

What part of accuracy do you not understand?

Who's behind this petition?

It just looks like something any disgruntled person could post. They only have around 4,000 signatures. I don't see this gathering any steam.


It very well could be true. The state of Mississippi had 2 runners for governor one which was being slandered for wanting to allow in activists courts circumventing the The Supreme Court, federal, state and the laws regarding the "people" who held the powers. He was wanting to go after the Banksters and Politicians. Could he have been part of one of the firms that make up the Spire Law Groups Case against the banksters and politicians???

The Presidential Election brought tears to my eyes not seeing Ron Paul there giving his Election Speech.

The Mississippi Election for the Office of the Governor scared me a little.

The last time we did that farmers banded together because the Government thought that just because they declared independence from them did not mean that they did not have to pay taxes. They sent their soldiers and we defended ours. As a show of force, there was some president, cough cough, told his people that we were keeping black people as slaves.

We were using black families as farm hands. We were also giving them food and shelter. Half the time there was nothing to do but watch the crops grow. Infact there are many many more black people fighting for the south than for the north. Down here we have many pictures of civil war soldiers Confederate and black. Yankees are lied to this day and it surprises me how daft people can be.

I have black friends with ties to VOLUNTEER SERVITUDE that date back to before the civil war. Who has family who fought in the civil war. Black friends who fly the rebel flag proudly. I would not fly it up north though. They dont understand that it is OUR FLAG. It is in our flag there for it is our flag.

Yankee education though. Think they know everything. We just sit there. Yes sir, no sir. Lets go to the field road and talk bout what were thinkin girl.

Annabelle, come own girl I nooooooo yer holdin.

Hol'dun what Jethro.

I noooooo yer hol'dun swer'tin feel'ns furmee.


Dayyyyyyyy
Day-aaaa-aaaaaaa-oh

Dont ever interfere with an evil mans scheme.

Texas can not legally leave unless granted permission from the federal government.
Please read the supreme court case Texas v White
