Probably more than that, actually. That’s just the number who have signed the petition so far. (And they’re not only Coloradans; many are from other states.)
As of this writing, 7,239 people had put their name to a petition on the White House’s website, requesting that the president “peacefully grant the State of Colorado to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.”
A lot of the signers, though, aren’t from Colorado. Some are from Missouri, or Kentucky, or Texas, and other states.
Colorado isn’t the only place where people are so dissatisfied with President Barack Obama that they want to quit America. As far as I can tell, the phenomenon started in Louisiana last week, the day after Tuesday’s election, when Obama was re-elected. At this point, 17,900 people have signed that petition.
Then Texas started one. Then New York, Kentucky, Colorado and New Jersey, and more.
