QuoteOriginally posted by: ppauperVenice votes to cut ties with ItalyOver two million residents of the Veneto region took part in the week-long survey, with 89 percent voting in favour of independence from Italy.The people have spoken !This does make me wonder about the value of belonging to a nation state. Defense seems like the biggest motivator, but is it really worth the baggage of the added overhead and bureaucracy of the central government? Most everything else that a big central government does can be done locally or bought on global markets. Venice, the Singapore of Europe.
