DAILYKENN.com -- About 500,000 Brazilians voted to secede from Brazil to form their own nation.
Most of the voters were white.
The unofficial and non-binding plebiscite took place in Brazil's southern three states — Paraná, Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina — where people of Italian, German, and Portuguese ancestry dominate the populations.
Many areas in the region still speak German as their native language.
Of 617,000 ballots cast, 94 percent voted for secession.
The residents believe they are being held back by the Brazilian government and can do better on their own. They complain of shouldering the tax burden that supports the government's massive welfare state that benefits non-white Brazilians.
“We in the south have the conditions to sustain ourselves and generate riches. Today we generate a mountain of riches in taxes and benefits which are exported, and there is no counterpart,” said José Gonçalves, a business manager voting in favor of independence in the southern city of Porto Alegre, in an interview posted on YouTube by the city’s Jornal do Comércio newspaper.Apparently many non-whites also support secession, realizing they would enjoy an enriched lifestyle in a new, white-majority nation.
If you understand Portugese, here is a YouTube video produced by the secessionist movement.
The movement originated in 1992 as 'The South is My Country.'
