Mr. President may I respectfully ask you to issue a mandate on our behalf, that any state petitioning to secede from the nation be first required to hold a general election in said state to determine if the majority of the citizens in said state are agreeable to ceding from the Nation.
(skip to end)
As far as I know we are still the United States of America and our Constitution gives citizens the right to liberty. The petitioners are taking away my liberty by requesting to secede my state without asking my permission to speak on my behalf.
I left out the middle of my too long petition because I decided I had to write a second one.
I need 25,000 signatures on my petition before December 14, 2012 in order for President Obama to give it consideration. Please help. thank you.
