Backyard Secession (Micronations)

Post by RebYell on Wed Oct 29, 2014 12:37 pm

I was roaming the internet when I came across a man who "Seceded" from the United States and formed his own independant nation in Nevada. The nation is this man's backyard....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_Molossia

It's a micronation.

But this gave me an idea. What if we all seceded from the nation in our own backyards? Granted it would be no true secession, and we'd still follow the laws of the United States and its Constitution, etc. I think it'd make for a great political statement that we want to secede, and are not happy with the way the US is going at the moment.

We could call it the "Independent Southern Territories of America".

What do y'all think?

Very Interesting, Could one claim such a status and still pay Nevada Property Taxes and US Income taxes? He might have property that is not taxed by Nevada, Nevada has no personal income tax.

You'd still have to follow US laws and regulations.

Well I think the point of a politically based micronation project is to make a point, not actually do anything. Make a statement that says, "Hey, I want change."

If you get a whole bunch of people doing that, you can make a point.
