  •  Somene should tell the VT Secessionist cretins (0+ / 0-)

    I remember a conversation with a cretin that supports Vermont secession. He assumed that I supported that movement until I smacked him down by reminding him that the Vermont Secessionist movement was not started by Vermonters, but rather carpetbaggers who wanted to use Vermont as a staging ground for secession from the union.

    Secession will not work because

    1. Vermont barely has any money for the upkeep of roads and other vital infrastructure. Where would the money for this come from? The 2nd homeowners that only live in VT part-time? Poor to middle-class Vermonters?
    1. Vermont is already independent of the rest of the nation, despite our Republican governor. We've elected officials who have angered the Bush administration (and for a good reason!) by representing the will of Vermonters.

    We don't need to secede and I feel that it's my duty to point out to non-Vermonters that I refuse to support this movement and I would rather defeat it or see it defeated.

    Also, what if the federal government decides to no longer respect Vermont's sovereignity and sends troops in to kill innocent Vermonters?

    There are so many factors that make secession a horrible idea.

    Conservatives are close-minded, shallow, superficial people that live in a fantasy world where everything is black and white and there are NO shades of gray.
