That’s a lot more Americans than fought the original Revolutionary War. Of course, it’s easy to sign a digital petition and rather less easy to spend a hungry winter at Valley Forge, but the size and speed of the response does indicate how Americans feel about Obama’s “America”:
Less than a week after a New Orleans suburbanite petitioned the White House to allow Louisiana to secede from the United States, petitions from seven states have collected enough signatures to trigger a promised review from the Obama administration.
By 6:00 a.m. EST Wednesday, more than 675,000 digital signatures appeared on 69 separate secession petitions covering all 50 states, according to a Daily Caller analysis of requests lodged with the White House’s “We the People” online petition system.
Nothing will come of these PR-stunt petitions. But they are an early sign of the secessionist struggles to come over the next two decades until the final dissolution in the 2033 timeframe. Americans don’t want to live in Mexico, Asia, or the Middle East, nor do they want to live in a post-America under Mexican, Asian, and Middle Eastern government. Nor should they, as evidenced by the millions of immigrants who are, ironically but predictably, attempting to turn their new country into the same sort of place they left in the first place.
This is just what immigrants do if they are allowed to invade in sufficient numbers. One Muslim immigrates, he eventually integrates, converts, and joins a church. One hundred Muslims immigrate, they build a mosque and their own Muslim community that grows over time. The Melting Pot isn’t merely a myth, it is a idealistic fantasy about as relevant to historic human behavioral patterns as Star Trek.
I am a little surprised, however, as I expected the first serious secession talk to come out of the Aztecs of Aztlan. The reaction to the election is remarkable because, as we all know, Romney wasn’t going to govern much differently than Obama. But it appears the symbolism of white Americans being deprived of their choice of president by an alliance of aliens has finally forced millions of Americans to realize that if things don’t change drastically, they will eventually find themselves living in Detroit writ large.
I wonder if the United Nations will be as interested in helping those seeking the right to self-determination in Texas and Louisiana as they are in so many other countries around the world? It will also be interesting to see if the Obama administration will continue to argue that Libyan and Syrian separatists need to be armed even as it wonders if it dares try to disarm American separatists.
