It does not matter which side of the political spectrum you lean toward, it's hard not to realize the beauty in America's democracy. The state of our democracy can also be very entertaining. Since the election on Nov. 6, more than 650,000 people have signed online petitions demanding that their states secede from the union.
The signatures have been entered on the White House website We the People: Your Voice in Our Government, whose slogan is "Giving all Americans a way to engage their government on the issues that matter to them." If any one request gets more than 25,000 signatures, the White House takes a serious look at it and issues a response. After someone petitioned for the state of Missouri to secede, another petition was submitted to We the People asking that if Missouri was granted secession, the remaining states in the union should be given a Pizza Party.
The pizza party petition, titled "Justice for Missouri Secession," states that the party would "reconcile differences, mend old wounds, and bring together the nation." So far, more than 1,300 people have signed the petition since it was established on Nov. 12. It has 30 days to get 25,000 signatures. Several people on Twitter are applauding the idea of the Pizza Party. One person tweeted that it was "awesome. " Of course, there are people who just think the petition is cheesy (pun intended) and weird.
