15 states start petitions to leave the country.
"It’s either the political theater equivalent of a hissy fit or the start of more than a dozen new countries: 15 states have filed petitions to secede from the United States after Tuesday’s election. These include Louisiana (which led the charge), the Republic of Texas, Kentucky, Colorado, New Jersey, Montana, North Dakota, Indiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Oregon. And somewhat hilariously, someone in North Dakota filed a petition requesting New York secede, which seems pretty rude, given they are sort of handling a major natural disaster right now. Though this is largely seen as symbolic, each state has a month to gather 25,000 signatures to have their peaceful withdrawal from the U.S.A. considered by the president. Good luck with that."
I wonder how "Symbolic" That 11 States in 1861 passed Ordinances Of Secession saying that they did not wish to be a part of the United States then?
The funny part about this is that Three States in this article (Colorado, Oregon, and New Jersey) voted for the President. What's up with that?
