The Secessionist Campaign for the Republic of Vermont
From Time via DumpDC, with this Editor's Note:
Editor’s Note: When the topic of Secession is found in the pages of Time Magazine…truly one of the pillars of the Main Stream Media…it means that secession is being taken seriously.
Read it all, please.
“It’s an abusive relationship we have with the central government,” says Peter Garritano, a square-jawed 54-year-old Subaru sales manager who is running for lieutenant governor. “We know it’s scary to leave the abusive nest. It’s a comfort zone in its own way. But we think we’ll do better leaving.”
Who else might have said something like that back in '08?
And to those who will (correctly) point out the socialist leanings of this endeavor, please read their statement of beliefs in considering the merits of their work.
For others who simply dismiss talk of secession as impractical, I ask:
What is your plan to deal with Leviathan and its resources, and will that plan actually work for those who oppose government tyranny and all other assaults upon the individual?
I'll bet all of those plans have a core of secessionist thinking, with variations mainly on scale and the de facto/de jure continuum.
