Should Connecticut secede from the union?
Connecticut is not immune.
WeThePeople.com, run by the White House, already contains a petition to allow Connecticut to secede. For real. And it has more than 3,300 signatures.
The petition specifically asks for the following: "Peacefully grant the State of Connecticut to withdraw from the United States of America & create its own NEW government." The creator is listed as Elaine C. from Bridgeport.
Of course, there are more than a few wackadoo petitions on WeThePeople. One, for example, seeks to take away citizenship from everybody who signs on to secession petitions.
Here are a few petitions that have no chance of succeeding.
