There is a right way to do things and there is a wrong way.
First, Concerning these “Petitions for Secession”.
States ask Congresses permission to be admitted to the union, they do NOT ask permission to exit the union. The Central government is NOT a party to the Constitution of 1787/1789; The Central government is simply a creation of the Constitution. Each of our Sovereign States that seceded from the union in 1860 and 1861 did so as SOVEREIGN States, thereby asserting their sovereignty. They did not petition, there was no need for such foolishness, they simply asserted the Sovereign powers granted them by their citizens.
It is unnecessary today for any of our Confederate States to secede from the United States of America; these acts were accomplished in the years of 1860 and 1861. Each of our Confederate States that seceded in the years of 1860 and 1861 currently exist under the occupation of a foreign National government, (The United States Inc). The current National government in the District of Columbia, and each of its administrative defacto districts (incorrectly referred to as “States”) are simply that, DEFACTO. “To withdraw from the United States of America today and create a NEW government”, would be to establish yet another defacto government where one already exists in place of our dejure governments. The correct LEGAL path to follow is to simply restore each confederate States dejure government, and Constitutions as they were before 1865, and at that point immediately amend those dejure Constitutions, to form the government that the Confederate citizens of each of our Confederate States choose to institute among themselves, otherwise each will still have a defacto government in the space where their dejure governments belong, with their dejure 1861 governments and constitutions having legal claim to remove the defacto government that exists in their place. In other words the issue still remains unsettled. It is a matter of settling the unsettled and doing things the proper, legal, lawful and right way.
As our President Jefferson Davis said…….
“A question settled by violence, or in disregard of law,
must remain unsettled forever.”
He also said……
“The principle for which we contend is bound to reassert itself, though it may be at another time and in another form.”
Until the issue is properly settled it will reassert itself. Each of our Confederate States MUST FOLLOW THE PROPER PATH TO END THE OCCUPATION. THIS IS WHY THE INTERIM GOVERNMENT FOR THE CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA EXISTS. http://csagov.org/
