Vermont wants to secede from the Union or at least some are embracing this movement. According to an article in the New York Sun, the First North American Secessionist Convention in Burlington, VT, organized by the pro-secession think tank, the Middlebury Institute is making plans for a November meeting.

The story quotes Kirkpatrick Sale, director of the institute, as saying over a dozen secessionist organizations are due to send representatives to the November 3-4 gathering, and noting Vermont as an appropriate for such discussion, given its history as an independent republic between 1777 and 1791, as well as New England's heritage as both revolution founder and radical hotbed. "Vermont has a very strong self-identity," he reportedly says, and secession is "the only principled, moral way to go," with the goal being not the takeover of any national government but to "simply absent ourselves from it."

The organization's website lists participants as already including those from Hawaii Nation, Alaska Independence Party, League of the South and several of its chapters, Southern National Congress Committee, Southern Caucus, Christian Exodus, New State Movement, Puerto Rico Independence Party, Parti Quebecois, the State of Jefferson, and the Second Vermont Republic. - ST
