In Vermont, nascent secession movement gains traction
MONTPELIER, Vt. --At Riverwalk Records, the all-vinyl record store just down the street from the state Capitol, the black "US Out of Vt.!" T-shirts are among the hottest sellers.

But to some people in Vermont, the idea is bigger than a $20 novelty. They want Vermont to secede from the United States -- peacefully, of course.

Disillusioned by what they call an empire about to fall, a small cadre of writers and academics is plotting political strategy and planting the seeds of separatism.

They've published a "Green Mountain Manifesto" subtitled "Why and How Tiny Vermont Might Help Save America From Itself by Seceding from the Union." They hope to put the question before citizens at Town Meeting Day next March, eventually persuading the state Legislature to declare independence, returning Vermont to the status it held from 1777 to 1791. ...

So VT wants to leave the US. It is, after all, an empire about to fall. They have a valid reason go for it lol.

Mike, that's news to me, since I never see NY syrups retailed here (and I check, too). Perhaps Northeasterners keep it all to themselves! BTW, I mean pure syrups, not the cheap adulterated stuff.

Seen those Pace Picante Sauce ads? They are a laugh, as I've never heard of a nationally-marketed pepper sauce made in NY! Have you?

You folks do realize, of course, that New York State is the leading maple syrup producer in the country, don't you? Symbolized by the State tree, the Sugar Maple. So if you run short of Vermont syrup, there's plenty more across the line. Vermont has the image, but NY has the syrup.

I hope that you fella's aren't serious. I have joked about Texas seceding before and since. But, the only people in the world that we can trust is each other. United we stand...divided we get beheaded.

OK w/ me too; I wouldn't lose sleep over it. I trust them to maintain Calvin Coolidge's home in Plymouth. And Canada is a good (superior?) alternate source of maple syrup.

BTW, would they join NAFTA? If so, then secession might be a moot point.

New England shall rise again!

As long as they don't put tariffs on maple syrup and granite from the Green Mountain state, I'm OK with this.

Historical trivia: New England states talked of succession over the War of 1812. Also, SC tried seceding over tariff nullification in 1832, but Andrew Jackson (of all people) faced them down.
