Some States Pushing to Secede After Obama Re-election
By Emily Roehler, Weekend Meteorologist - bio | email
Political unrest is taking over some of the country after the 2012 presidential election.
The re-election of Obama has some Americans pushing their states to secede from the union.
A few dozen states, including Nebraska, have started petitions asking the White House to allow them to secede and form their own government. Each state must get 25,000 signatures before the White House will respond.
Currently Nebraska falls thousands of signatures short of that requirement.
