Every single state in the union has created a petition to secede from the United States in the aftermath of President Obama's reelection.
I wouldn't put too much stock into the numbers they are quoting. Technically, 13,500 people alone could push the signature number up to 675,000. Each person can vote on each states petition (some states have doubles and triples). And then there are those who can change their IP addresses to create multiple accounts. Who knows what the actual number is. All I know is that from the ones I've looked at, 1/2 to 3/4 of the people signing aren't even from that state.
People assume that time is a strict progression of cause and effect, but actually from a non-linear non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey...stuff.
