Obama haters petition for Colorado to secede: More than 3,000 signatures at WhiteHouse.gov

There's been a lot of talk this election about how divided our country is -- and that was very clear in Colorado, where a roughly even split had two camps bashing each other -- sometimes on opposite sides of the street. Taking the divisiveness to a whole new level, voters angry with the outcome of the election have created a petition to the White House for Colorado to secede from the nation. It has close to 3,000 signatures.
