Cascadia - Region or Secessionist Movement?(Mountains, Myth or Future Nation)

See maps and explainations in the linked websites.
Idealogically, Cascadia encompasses our collective hopes and dreams of sustainability and political independence.
As a secessionist movement, Cascadia is probably more good humored, wishful thinking than revolution. However, with the current politcal climate, the idea of an independent nation seems ever more realistic and rational.
Recent events have proven that anything is posible. Who knows what the future may bring?
Dream on, Cascadians.
