I think If Bangladesh was not Islamic the Seven Sister States of India would have already joined.

Yeah.

And China acts like that psycho creepy guy who wants a girl who is not interested and threatens to throw acid in her face if she doesn't agree to be with him.

I voted for Palestine. I realize the situation over there is difficult right now but I am shocked more people did not vote on that.

I also voted for Tibet and Uyghurstan (East Turkestan) but for those two I am less sure about. Perhaps things can still be worked out within China.

I do not know enough about the Moluccas and the "Seven Sister States" to vote on them. And I am against the breakup of Russia.

There's a huge difference between your examples and that of Tibet or Xinjiang. For starters, nobody is occupying Quebec or Puerto Rico. Secondly the Conch Republic is a tongue in cheek joke, it's not real.

I don't support but why not if people living there hope to be independent?

Okinawa, or Ryukyu should be independent from Japan.

As should Hawaii, most of Alaska, North and South Dakota, chunks of Georgia and parts of New England.

And SouthWest US along with the whole state of Texas should be returned to Mexico.

Can you name a single sovereign state that recognizes Xinjiang or Tibet as being occupied? No one recognized the Soviet Union's sovereignty over the Baltic states yet why does everyone recognize those territories as part of China?
