Less than a week after the country voted President Barack Obama as its returning president, the White House has had to deal with a string of petitions for state secession. Yes you read that right, state secession. Arizona and Texas are looking to leave the United States. Is it the Civil War all over again? 

The petitions, located on , typically follow the same phrasing, “We petition the Obama administration to peacefully grant the State of [Blank] to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.”

These petitions have all cropped up shortly after the election.

More than 30 states — including Arizona — have also filed petitions. Arizona had about 10,000 signatures as of 7 a.m. Tuesday. Texas leads the charge with more than 64,000 signatures as of Tuesday morning, well over the 25,000-vote bar which currently designates an official response from the Obama administration.

A quick login and click enables a user to sign a petition. The problem with this is that it allows users to not have to provide what state they reside in. The user is only allowed to sign once.

No response has yet been made by the White House, we will keep you updated with more details.
