Thousands of North Carolinans Want to Secede from U.S.

North Carolina residents are among people in more than 30 states petitioning the White House to dissolve the union in the wake of President Obama's re-election.

Residents of North Carolina and more than 30 other states have filed petitions to secede from the United States.

Residents of Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia, New York, Michigan, Texas and other states have filed the petitions under the "We The People" program, featured on the White House website, according to the Huffington Post.

The North Carolina petition, which launched Nov. 9 and had more than 21,000 signatures Tuesday afternoon, quotes 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..."

The petitions come in the wake of President Obama winning a second term November 6 over Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Romney won in North Carolina.

The White House website explains of the review process for "We the People" petitions that get 25,000 signatures in a 30-day period: "If a petition meets the signature threshold, it will be reviewed by the Administration and we will issue a response."

Lets be totally honest, the whole election was about race. It shouldnt be, but it was. All of the news networks showed that when they were looking at breaking down the vote and how Obama was behind in state X, but once the votes came in for the large urban cities which have a large african american presence he is expected to win because he will carry the black vote. (The news coverages words not mine). Like i said the whole thing ahouldnt have been, but was in fact about race.
