As the freedom-seekers are so desperately trying to free themselves from our horrible Government, from taxes, and above all from government imposed healthcare, I have created a petition on WhiteHouse.gov to help them out.  LINK

I must tell you that there are more worthy petitions (e.g. ridding religious organizations of the 501(c) status when they clearly violate their obligation to not meddle in politics and on removing all foreign aid to Uganda and impose sanctions if the "Kill the Gays" bill is passed, to name a couple).

Yet I felt that we should not be complicit in denying these freedom-loving people (aka sore losers) a way out of the horrors of our Country.  Thanks to ThatPoshGirl, I already knew where the havens of freedom are for these people.

So here is the text of the petition:

We petition the obama administration to grant the wishes of freedom-seekers striving for secession to peacefully withdrawal from the United States of America.

To satisfy those petitioning for secession as this is unlawful (see TX v. White, SCOTUS 1869), we hereby request that the US Government:

A) Set aside land to accommodate them, provide them with one-way tickets to this Promised Land, and appropriate funds to fence this land from the remaining USA. The denizens of this Land will be completely free from any/all tax obligations (they will also be free from any financial support from the USA). OR, if not possible,

B) Provide funds for one-way fares to relocate these people to Indonesia, Somalia or Honduras (currently the only 3 nations that will allow these people relief from a national healthcare system). Freedom-seekers shall irrevocably give up their USA nationality/passports.

(I had a longer petition written, but they limit us to 800 words.)

So please, if you are so inclined sign in to "We the People" and sign my petition.  Thank you for your support.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
