    As far as Scottish independence from England having any affect on the Amish is concerned, I don’t think that will ever happen. There is really no comparison. Scotland was an independent country of its own before its parliament signed an agreement to become part of the United Kingdom of Britain. Holmes County, Ohio and Lagrange County, Indiana have never been independent countries and have no legitimate right to withdraw from their respective states, let alone the United States, regardless of their cultural status. I don’t know about Hawaii or Alaska, but I do know that according to the agreement with the United States when Texas joined the Union, Texas reserved the right to withdraw from the United States and resume its status as an Independent nation. Legally it can also divide itself into 5 states, but it is said that will never happen because no part of Texas wants to give up the Alamo.

      Lowell, excellent post and I do agree with you…Scotland and Holmes County are not analogous, just sort of making a larger point about nationalistic movements…Texas may well be more analogous…
