When one becomes many (e unum pluribus)

There are plenty of folks who would like to replicate the Confederate States of America, only with success. Here are some of the secessionist sentiment I’ve run across recently, and not just the much publicized White House petitions. Let’s start with the attempt to divide California into North and South. Shades of Ecotopia with regard to North California, or more historically interesting, the State of Jefferson.
Finally, there’s this baker’s dozen (and more) of secessionist movements, some serious and some not so serious, in no particular order. Here’s the list: Alaska, Long Island, Republic of Texas, Nation of Cascadia or Ganjastan, League of the South or a revived Confederate States of America, Northwest Angle, Third Palmetto Republic, Second Vermont Republic, Christian, Exodus, People’s Republic of North Star, Sovereign Citizens, Kingdom of Beaver Island, Conch Republic, Essex Junto, the Great Republic of Rough and Ready, and the State of North Colorado. Instead of ferreting out specific websites, I’m just going to provide several aggregate sites for you to search.
Clearly, one response to the American Empire, and one solution to American imperialism, is to break apart that empire in order to blunt or end that imperialism.
