    The bioregional vision and planetary community come together at the local level for a politics and ways of life that are sustaining and egalatarian: Cascadia is rising to this reality. We are stewards and leaders in the efforts.

    Because we are in desperate need of a voice, which the US Government has trouble with. If we secede, then we can both cater to the people in the Northwest better, and the US will have an easier time listening to it’s people with the similar ideologies between the east and center US. I also believe Cascadia can be a great safe haven for anybody and everybody, a place without fear or hatred that knows what it must do and knows what it mustn’t. With values allowing TRUE freedom, TRUE democracy, and TRUE liberty, giving everybody the real chance to pursue happiness. Something that the US is simply incapable of doing with such a large population, and such deep fear.

    It has become increasingly clear over the last several elections that most of America holds vastly different moral, ethical and political views than the bioregion of Cascadia. It is past time for us to separate ourselves from those values of which we are directly opposed.

    I grew up here but have lived in other places, from the staunchly conservative Utah to rural New England.

    The idea of cascadia as an independent country has been something I’ve liked for years. As the US continues to become a more and more divided place, it makes a great deal of sense to me to break up a toxic political and social system and start fresh on a regional basis where people have more in common with one another.

    Permanence is an illusion, both in nature and in politics. The US of 240 years ago is NOT the same country that it is now. The same could be said for the US of 50 years ago. The only thing that has remained constant is a system of governance, and even that has been subject to change. Regions of a country splitting apart is common throughout history, even very recent history. The Soviet Union collapsed after member states left, the Czech Republic and Slovakia peacefully split in the early 90s; peaceful secession by the will of the people isn’t something that should garner a military response.

    From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.

    If you are a resident of the Pacific Northwest, Southeast Alaska included, look into Cascadia, even just as an identity.

    Because it is my home. And the home of countless beautiful, invaluable beings. I am a living product of the place I live. I share breath with the rainforest and the brown bears, the hummingbirds and salmonberries. I give gratitude to the beings I consume to continue this living this beautiful Life. We Are the Pacific Northwest. We are Cascadia. To know a place, is to Love a place. It is culturally, geographically, ecologically Different than the rest of the United States. I am talking about Southeast Alaska as well, which is where I live. The rainforest is still unbroken here. There are humpback whales in summer, sea otters year round. It is for the most part, intact. Cascadia could keep it that way and perpetuate what we know is Right in this world.

    Ever since I’ve moved here 4 years ago, I’ve fallen in love with this place. It’s impacted me personally and has made me come into my own, realizing myself, what I am and what I want. I want an independent state where freedom isn’t a cliched buzzword, but an actual axiom for which society stands. I want a place where the foundation of our society comes from the solidarity in peoples hearts and minds in connection with the land.

    No more negative politics and like minded people with the will to change and build a country that is truly vibrant.

    We are a unique region, with a unique population. All are tired of the way the United States works and governs. That government stole the land that belongs to us, poorly manages it, pollutes it (I am looking at you Hanford), and robs it of it’s resources. They try to tell us what to think, what to believe, and how to live. It is time for us to dissolve the bonds and strike out on our own, letting us govern ourselves and not be dominated by the government on the East Coast.
