    After America’s first Black President was re-elected to almost 1 million or more Americans have signed petitions on the White House website (https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/) asking to secede from the Union.

    While it has been hard to get Black people, who have suffered for over 400 years under White leadership, to even think about “separation,” many White people simply cannot take another 4 years of living in this country under a Black President.

    At first these calls for separation or secession were overlooked or ignored by the mainstream media, but now governors of states like Texas and Tennessee have come forward to advise their constituents of the ramifications of secession from the Union.

    Many of the states that have the most petitioners are not in a good fiscal position to pull out from the Federal government, because they get more federal revenue dollars than they contribute in taxes. No federal assistance means no more upkeep for highways, interstates or bridges, no federally funded law enforcement and fire departments, no public libraries, no phone lines, no cable television, no cell phone towers, no power grids, no water lines, no mail services, no paramedics, no hospitals that accept Medicare/Medicaid funding, and the list goes on.

    After these hotheads cool down a minute, they may decide to take the route that many expatriates have taken in the last few years—leave the country.
