During the Cold War, the Doomsday Clock was created as a subjective measure of the possibility of a nuclear exchange between the United States and the Soviet Union. Today, as a result of the most recent decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States which clearly repudiate the original Constitution of the United States, and thus are placing the reasons for union between the states in jeapardy, I would like to announce...the Secession Clock. The original position of the Secession Clock on its first day, June 28, 2012 is placed at Six o'clock.
n response to an ongoing conflict over electronic bingo and other kinds of gambling, at least one legislator in Alabama's Seventh Congressional District--which includes part of the state's "Black Belt"--are discussing the possibility of seceding from Alabama and forming a new state.

Perhaps the best evidence of how American history was rewritten, Soviet style, in the post-1865 era is the fact that most Americans seem to be unaware that "Independence Day" was originally intended to be a celebration of the colonists' secession from the British empire. Indeed, the word secession is not even a part of the vocabulary of most Americans, who more often than not confuse it with "succession." The Revolutionary War was America's first war of secession.
