The Montana TEA Party is circulating a petition asking President Obama to allow Montana to secede from the union.
In an email sent to TEA Partiers yesterday, the Montana Shrugged Billings TEA Partiers wrote that it was time to “put the White House on Notice” and ask the president to ”Peacefully grant the State of Montana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.”
Perhaps the impending secession is the reason TEA Party Republican Jerry O’Neil is demanding his legislative salary be paid in gold.
As of this posting, only 24 people had signed the petition, so the thousands of members the Montana Shrugged TEA Party had claimed to have must have dwindled somewhat.
The entire secession email can be read below the fold.
PUT THE WHITE HOUSE ON NOTICEEnough is enough!WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATIONTO:Peacefully grant the State of Montana to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government.
As the founding fathers of the United States of America made clear in the Declaration of Independence in 1776:
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
“…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and institute new Government…”

Eric is doing a new blog radio show on Monday Nights through a network setup in North Dakota. As you recall, he used to to a local interview show in Billings which was very successful in getting the message out and vetting many candidates in previous State Elections. Even Joe “The Plumber” was on the show via Skype.
The discussions range from energy topics to critical teaparty issues.
