Petition to Secede SC? Really?

Ran across this on the WIS website.

In the days following the 2012 General Election, citizens from several northern and southern states, including South Carolina, have openly petitioned the White House to secede from the United States.

In less than 48 hours, more than 9,000 people have signed two different petitions asking the Obama Administration to allow South Carolina to secede.

Ridiculous and irresponsible.

I can’t believe serious people can subscribe to the “take my marbles and go home” response to elections. Its time to work on our country and important matters such as debt and campaign finance reform. Not rehash an election that wasn’t even close.

You can be upset with the result but that effort would be much better spent in working on positive solutions rather than continuing to dwell on this one. To even suggest leaving the United States over this temparary setback is just pathetic. I couldn't imagine SC leaving the union over a relatively short term disagreement. There is always another election just around the corner.

So lets drop this petition garbage and move forward to something less Un-American.
