Why are you all trying to compare this to the civil war?
The civil war was about a lot more then secession.
If I thought this was going to do anything then i'd sign it myself,the "U.S" has gotten worse and worse,and it doesn't show any signs of getting better.
Obama himself stated that "the constitution is outdated" but even still you people voted for him.Why?..oh...yeah..how could I forget...he got you a phone.
Furthermore,how can you not see how bad the TSA has gotten? they don't do background checks you've got rapists,pedophiles,and people with a god complex "keeping ya safe" by groping you,your women and your children,how can you stand for that?
I mean,come on people,there's a man in Dc that's lying through his teeth straight to your face,and you're accepting it. Whatever happened to that sense of freedom? That Never Say Die spirit that made this country great? Because we seem to have lost it,and we're falling apart now,forgetting who we were.

As for those who are complaining about the petion have been started:
"If you make peaceful revolution impossible you make violent revolution inevitable" - John F. Kennedy

Wake up America,your country needs you.

"Every constitution, then, and every law, naturally expires at the end of nineteen years. If it be enforced longer, it is an act of force, and not of right. It may be said, that the succeeding generation exercising, in fact, the power of repeal, this leaves them as free as if the constitution or law had been expressly limited to nineteen years only. In the first place, this objection admits the right, in proposing an equivalent. But the power of repeal is not an equivalent. It might be, indeed, if every form of government were so perfectly contrived, that the will of the majority could always be obtained, fairly and without impediment. But this is true of no form. The people cannot assemble themselves; their representation is unequal and vicious. Various checks are opposed to every legislative proposition. Factions get possession of the public councils, bribery corrupts them, personal interests lead them astray from the general interests of their constituents; and other impediments arise, so as to prove to every practical man, that a law of limited duration is much more manageable than one which needs a repeal." -Thomas Jefferson

The Constitution is not infallible by virtue of being the Constitution. In addition, you're doing yourself a massive disservice by dismissing all Obama supporters as voting for him because "he got you a phone". When you give yourself over to partisan politics so completely, you're lost to intelligent debate. Instead, you start speaking rhetoric like you fell into multiple times in that post, instead of thoughtful criticism.

Although I am curious about your TSA comment. Is that relevant? Did I miss something related to that?
