Petitioners Want To Secede From USA

Politicians of every persuasion say it after every campaign, win or lose: "Elections have consequences." Want proof? Go to the White House's "We The People" website and you'll find formal petitions from people in more than a dozen states -- including Kristopher W. of Tillamook -- demanding that their state be allowed to "peaceably" secede from the union. In fact, there are two separate petitions asking that Oregon formally divorce itself from the United States. In that respect, Oregon joins South Carolina, Georgia, Missouri, and New Jersey with multiple entries. In Oregon's case, however, the two entries are identical and were submitted by the same person on the same day/Charles Pope, Oregonian. More here.

Question: Would you want Idaho to succeed from the union, if that action was possible?
