Exactly. It's the equivalent of volunteering to be put on some sort of watch list.

These angry demands for freedom are being posted on a public section of the website. "Public" meaning open to anyone who wants to participate, even lunatics who think that Texas should break from the U.S. and rejoin with Mexico again or whatever. That person could be a tinfoil-hat-wearing conspiracy theorist or a bored 12-year-old kid trying to get a rise out of people. There's no way of knowing.

If that wasn't enough, anyone from any state can 'sign the petition'. :oops:

What are the chances that most of the people who signed the Texas petition also signed the petitions for the other states "hoping" to secede? Suddenly we've gone from thousands of people in dozens of states hoping to break away and start their own country to just thousands of people in the country hoping that pretty much any state will secede. And, well, we've always kind of known that those people exist, right?

If for some reason you're still bothered/aroused by this, there's one more petition you should see. It's gained just as much momentum with the petition-signing community, and the idea behind it is just as silly:

I'm guessing this won't make headlines in the Post or be seen on CNN.

As long as you're going to 'sign away', I started a new petition to "Make Willease King" :cheers:
