Citizens from 21 States File Petitions to Secede from US After Election
The number of states with thousands of signatures requesting secession is growing by the day
Angry and churlish citizens from 21 states, who have absolutely no political power whatsoever, have filed petitions at We The People on WhiteHouse.gov for their states to be granted permission to leave the union.
So far, the states include Louisiana, Texas, Kentucky, Michigan, Colorado, New Jersey, Montana, Missouri, North Dakota, Indiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, New York, Arkansas, and Oregon. (Links to each state show the number of citizens from each state that have requested secession.)

Petitioners have one month to obtain 25,000 signatures in order for the president to consider the request. Louisiana was first, posting its request on Nov. 7 and was followed by Texas on Nov. 9.
As of press time Monday afternoon, Louisiana had 14,817 signatures; Texas is just about there with 21,869.
