On November 7, the day after the election, "Michael E" from Slidell, Louisiana, filed a petition at the White House "We the People" site, requesting that Louisiana be allowed to secede.
"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," the petition reads, quoting the Declaration of Independence.
As of this writing, the petition has 8.162 signatures and needs 16,838 to reach a goal of 25,000.

Funny, the Red States drain the most federal resources and have the highest percentages of people on entitlements. You may want to fact check your statement there.

if the red state were to start there own united states the blue states would run out of money and collapse. no more red states to steal weath from. They wouldnt even hold up a good ground force because they dont like the military and they have banned guns in there states. it would be an easy take over for red states.
