Citizens In 20 States Petition To Secede From United States (INDEXSP:.INX, INDEXDJX:.DJI, NYSEARCA:GLD)
The examiner is reporting that citizens from Louisiana, Texas, Kentucky, Colorado, New Jersey, New York, Montana, North Dakota, Indiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Oregon, Arkansas, South Carolina, Tennessee, Michigan, and Missouri all filed petitions to secede from the United States. Petitions were filed on the White House “”We the People” site, and have 30 days to reach a threshold of 25,000 signatures. Once the petition reaches this level of signatures, the petition is reviewed and sent to the appropriate policy expert, and the filers will receive a response.
The examiner quotes Regina Conley from Red Alert Politics as saying, “”While these petitions serve more to make a point than to present a serious proposition, they are a physical symbol of the deep resentment for the direction in which the United States is moving under the Obama administration.”
