Want to get the attention of the White House? Send them a letter stating that you, and currently 11,138 others, want to start your own government. That is exactly what Montana, and many other states in our nation, our doing at this very moment.
Currently, our nation's capital is drawing its attention towards recently published online petitions attempting to allow the State of Montana to "withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government," according to an online letter to the Obama Administration.
Montana is one of many states that has filed similar petitions.

The petition filed for our state reads,
We the people of the great state of Montana, do see that in today's world the Federal Government has not led our citizens justly and with honor. We therefore as free men and women of our great state do believe that it is time to take matter upon ourselves to ensure our continued freedom, and to enact our own laws and here buy govern ourselves without the federal government's involvement in our internal matters from this day forward.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin: 1775
