White House shoots down secession

The White House responded January 12th to the numerous secession petitions circulating on their website, with an unsurprising “No”, saying we can’t let debate tear us apart. It’s great to see that individuals are looking to secession as an option to free them from governmental oppression, but they’re going about it the wrong way. Asking for permission to secede would be like the American colonists asking for their independence; the answer would be a definite NO. It is obvious no federal government would willingly relinquish its power over a group of people. It is of no surprise that the government brought up the Civil War as a cautionary tale, as if there is no such thing as peaceful secession, basically saying, “if you secede, we will crush you and force you back with the barrel of a gun.”
