I hereby declare the Sovereign State of Burri

Our borders encompass approximately one quarter acre in the City of Baraboo and a floating circle two meters in diameter and centered on myself.

UTICA, New York -One in five American adults - 22% - believe that any state or region has the right to "peaceably secede from the United States and become an independent republic," a new Middlebury Institute/Zogby International telephone poll shows.
Ann Althouse has more:

And it's 40% among those aged 18 to 24, 43% among Hispanics, and 40% among African-Americans.

This is not a right-wing thing. Liberals are most likely to buy it — 32% compared to 17% for conservatives.

So all these people have the law wrong and don't seem to know the basics of the history of the Civil War. They think secession is possible, but would they support secession in their own state?

18% said yes. In the South: 24%. And 35% of the under 30 group were ready to secede.
Unfortunately, the Sovereign State of Burri currently relies on money earned in the U.S. and sent into our borders, and the tax rate on that money here is 100%.
