Apparently some Arizonans don't want to be part of the United States anymore.

There's a petition started on the White House page that calls for Arizona to withdraw from the United States. It currently has over 21,000 signatures.

The petition states that Arizona wants to withdraw from the United States to create its own government, citing issues with government reform, health care and human rights.

The petition also states:

The citizens of the great state of Arizona have the right to stand for their principles. That man is granted unalienable rights, which are not the dispensations of the government, but find their beginnings in God and come from God alone. These are the principles that our forefathers stood for, the principles upon, which our Constitution is based, and those in which we firmly place our belief and resolve.

Signatures are need by Dec. 10 to reach a goal of 25,000, which would force the White House to consider the issue.
