They'll be like every other separatist group. They want to be an independent nation with access to the resources/money benefits of the parent country.

Says you. They made no such claims.

When the 13 colonies declared independence from Britian what "resources/money benefits of the parent country" did they want to retain?

What you just said is stupid beyond measure. People want to be free for freedom's sake. They happily give up the benefits you claim they demand to keep.

Oh for fuck's sake. Is the old 13 conies the only example you can think of?

Canada has been involved in a separatist battle most it's life. Quebec is a perfect example of "we want what your money, but we want our own country."

The European Union right now is an ongoing battle between autonomy and money getting.

It's everywhere if you dig into their platforms.

Before you get all emotional and make a fool out of yourself by calling other people stupid because you have only a shallow layer of knowledge, look in the mirror dumbass.
