Can States Secede From The United States Of America?
The answer is yes, they can secede from the United States of America and become their own independent form of government. The answer to this question is traced back to the Declaration of Independence. Our founding fathers felt that the people had the right to leave the country and form their own government, when this government became destructive of the people who live in it.
This started one week after Obama won the election to become President of the United States of American and thus was able to start his second term in office. It started slowly, a couple from Owasso, Oklahoma started a petition to allow Oklahoma to become it's own government. After that it began to grow rapidly.
At this point in time there are over 16 states are trying to secede from the United States of America. Not the politicians who represent the states, but the people who live in the states. They have signed petitions on the White House Website, telling the president that they wish to leave the USA and form their own government.
There are many reasons they wish to do this. The economy is horrible, many people no longer have jobs, many hate Obama Care, many feel Obama is a socialist or a Muslim. But, people have also stated they are worried about the United States being part of the New World Order!
Texas is one of the states that has joined the petition to leave the USA and form their own government, but at this point in time, Rick Perry has denied that that will ever happen.
But, what would happen if states ever left the Union? How would they protect themselves from other countries? Would they have their own currency? It is a complicated issue. Many people are very angry that Obama has become President.
At this point in time, people are only signing petitions and the White House is ignoring them. But a little while ago a Judge, who I wrote about in another hub, warned of a civil war, if Obama became President for a second term.
Are States going to be able to leave the United States, or do you think that there just might be a second civil war here?
