President Barak Obama responds to Southern states
In 2012, individuals from 8 U.S. States filed petitions on petitions.whitehouse.gov requesting that Washington allow their respective State the right to "Peacefully withdrawal from the United States of America and create its own government." The official position of the White House is to respond to any and all petitions that have at least 25,000 signatures. The White House officially responded in 2013 to the petitions from the following States: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. In its official response, there are stark comparisons to 150 years ago when Abraham Lincoln addressed the Southern states on Secession.
