This is the wrong way to go. Read up on what happened in Virginia in 1861, and its aftermath. It didn't turn out well.

The irony in this movement is obvious. Here we have the "super patriotic Americans" lining up to leave this country. Sad.

I can only attribute it to "Obama derangement syndrome." This too shall pass.

Bingo. All of those interesting questions about "have you ever been part of an organization whose purpose is the overthrow of the US government?" or something to that effect. Silly, uselless gesture.

Apparently DSS isn't that interested as of yet. From an email sent to the whole office by our in house FSO:

DSS Notice Regarding Secession Petitions
November 16, 2012
DSS personnel have recently received questions from security personnel at cleared contractors about whether contractors should file adverse information reports pursuant to NISPOM paragraph 1-302 regarding cleared persons who sign petitions to allow a state to withdraw or secede from the United States.
It also appears that erroneous statements have been made to the effect that DSS is directing contractors to treat the signing of such petitions as reportable adverse information.
Please note that DSS has not provided any approved direction or guidance. DSS is not directing any contractor to file adverse information reports regarding persons who have signed secession or withdrawal petitions. This issue is under review and DSS will provide information to contractors when that review is complete.
