Anyway, I wonder what the "Union" response will be if, in fact, Vermont staters do vote to secede and will the arguments for whatever action is taken or not taken sound similar to the arguments that were commonly made when South Carolina seceded. 



Vermont and New Hampshire are alwasy mentioned when modern secession is considered as a realtively small number of people could constitue 51% of the vote. I wonder why Wyoming, the smallest stae, is not considered?

Libertarians bandy about the idea of moving to New Hampshire and peacfully takng over the legislature with their votes. It is just talk. Walter Williams, professor at George Mason and columnist, seems to be the most vocal, but I've not seen any moving vans in his driveway.

The Vermont group seems to be a few dozen Greens, Socialists and Nazis. A bizarre coalition at best...
