White House Responds to Secession Petitions

Americans who signed digital petitions asking permission for states to peacefully secede from the union.

 

In a nutshell, the answer is no.

 “As much as we value a healthy debate,” writes Jon Carson, director of the White House’s Office of Public Engagement, in in the official response, “we don’t let that debate tear us apart.”

WND was the first news outlet in the nation to report when a Louisiana man began a petition on the White House’s “We the People” website, asking permission for his state to peacefully secede.

The Louisiana petition quoted from the Declaration of Independence: “‘Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government.’”
