The Sun Never Sets On Das Bushland

Would Have A Better Chance Of Success?

The Once and Future Republic of Vermont
By Ian Baldwin and Frank Bryan
The winds of secession are blowing in the Green Mountain State.
Vermont was once an independent republic, and it can be one again. We think the time to make that happen is now. Over the past 50 years, the U.S. government has grown too big, too corrupt and too aggressive toward the world, toward its own citizens and toward local democratic institutions. It has abandoned the democratic vision of its founders and eroded Americans' fundamental freedoms.
Vermont did not join the Union to become part of an empire.
The 9/11 commission report says that "the American homeland is the planet."
