    This is a link to a petition calling for those who sign these secessionist petitions that are floating around several states to be stripped of their citizenship and exiled.

    Please sign and share this petition if you are sick and tired of treasonous, racially prejudiced, sexist, homophobic, Bible-thumping, money-grubbing, gun-toting, hate-mongering, neo-confederate, cousin-fucking, shit-filled conservatives.

    Of course, we all know that it won't be taken seriously, but it would be pretty cool if it got enough signatures to elicit a response from the White House.

    "...a large number of patriotic Americans, mostly from states won by Mitt Romney last week, have petitioned the White House to let them secede. They should be careful about what they wish for. It would be excellent financial news for those of us left behind if Obama were to grant a number of the rebel states their wish “to withdraw from the United States [emphasis added] and create [their] own NEW government” (the petitions emphasize “new” by capitalizing it).

    Red states receive, on average, far more from the federal government in expenditures than they pay in taxes. The balance is the opposite in blue states. The secession petitions, therefore, give the opportunity to create what would be, in a fiscal sense, a far more perfect union.

    Among those states with large numbers of petitioners asking out: Louisiana (more than 28,000 signatures at midday Tuesday), which gets about $1.45 in federal largess for every $1 it pays in taxes; Alabama (more than 20,000 signatures), which takes $1.71 for every $1 it puts in; South Carolina (26,000), which takes $1.38 for its dollar; and Missouri (22,000), which takes $1.29 for its dollar."
