I'm laughing at some of the other petitions up right now though.

Personally, I'm hoping that these gain traction. If they don't want to be a US citizen anymore, then they should get their desires granted and be stripped of citizenship and deported to a country of their choice.
In the case Trop v. Dulles (1958) 356 U.S. 86, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, 5-4, that it is unconstitutional for the government to revoke the citizenship of a U.S. citizen as a punishment.
