    In a multicultural nation differing loyalties shouldn't come as much as a surprise. In order to be truely sensitive to the feelings of our various and sundry demographics we probably need several different "national anthems."

    ........ 27% of Hispanics would support secession, compared to 19% of white voters and 12% of African American voters. Young voters were also more likely to support succession. 29% of 18-29 year olds would support succession, while only 14% of voters age 46-65 and only 16% of voters age 65+ would support it. .........

    Keep it clean, Dutch. Tell me more about your problems with "demographics" other than your own.
