Secessionists of Yore Are Rolling Over in Their Graves

Tens of thousands of secessionists in various states across the country have signed petitions on the government website We the People requesting permission from the Obama administration to leave the Union. Should any petition receive 25,000 signatures in 30 days — as those of Texas, Louisiana, and probably many others are poised to do — they will receive an official response from the government. The official response will be, “No.”
