"Divide or unite" remains the question, and while "Six Californias" failed to make the ballot this time around, the organizers might take a page out of "Better Together's" book next time around, because -- let's face it -- there is a very fine line between what divides us and what unites us.

The United Kingdom Nearly Died for Maggie's Sins

Why on earth did the Scots, largely quiescent as part of Great Britain for three centuries, suddenly become the mouse that roared?

How would Americans fare under losing Texas compared to the British losing the Scots? The idea of a Texas secession may seem less likely than the Scots leaving the U.K., but the vote might be a lot closer than anyone in the U.S. would like.

Largely an exercise in fantasy, like the longest-running science fiction show on the planet, NATO, since the end of the Soviet superpower erased the Cold War fear of a Red Army surge through the heart of Western Europe to the Bay of Biscay, has been an institution in search of a new mission and an accident waiting to happen.
