There have been the tens of thousands of people who have signed petitions expressing the desire for their states to secede from the union. Well, there is no state that is dumb enough to want to do that, especially not the states where most of these petitions signers come from. You see, the people who run those states know that they are on the federal dole. They receive much more in federal benefits than they pay in federal taxes.
However, the folks behind these petitions are clearly of a mind to sever their ties to the United States. They think they would be better off if they were not burdened by being U.S. citizens.
