"Crimea, Scotland…Now Venice Votes on Breakaway"
Quote
Crimea’s residents aren’t the only Europeans striving for secession, with referendums in both Scotland and Spain’s Catalonia planned for later this year. But the phenomenon appears to be spreading: this week Venetians have been voting on breaking away from Italy, albeit in a referendum not recognized by Rome or regional authorities.

Paolo Bernardini, professor of European history at the University of Insubria in Como, Italy, has been campaigning for an independent Venice since 2007. He said the city was free for around 1,100 years – before losing its independence to Napoleon in 1797 – and it was “high time” for it to become an autonomous state once again.

“Although history never repeats itself, we are now experiencing a strong return of little nations, small and prosperous countries,able to interact among each other in the global world,” he told CNBC.

Imagine how prosperous California would be?  Seventh largest global economy?  The rest of the 49 states not dragging it down?

Wouldn't it be a great experience if there were 50 small and prosperous nations in North America?  No big brother to steal prosperity from the masses?

Every man, woman, and child free to KEEP their fruit of their labor?
