Texas seems to have won the race to “secede” from the United States following President Obama’s reelection, with the state’s online petition surpassing the 25,000-signature threshold some time yesterday. At last count, 23 petitions asking for states to peacefully secede have popped up on the White House’s “We the People” website, but the story doesn’t end there.

A new counter-petition is asking the Obama administration to “deport everyone that signed a petition to withdraw their state from the United States of America.” Take that, sore losers and America haters!



There must be some post-election irony in wanting to exile those in the U.S. who want to “succeed.”

Hey, here’s an idea.
