To Secede or Not to Secede?

What remains of the Vermont secession movement since the death of Thomas H. Naylor is a blog run by Rob Williams and his "web editor," the sham radical and anti-Vermont Army/Air National Guard and its F35 program "activist," Juliet Buck. Other than a poorly attended event stunt in September, Williams and Buck's dream of leading Vermont out of the Union is now dead in its tracks. All that remains is a little read blog called Vermont Commons that publishes the pinings of, what has been been described by a founder, Ian Baldwin, the "small community" of Vermont seceshers.

 So, as a New Year's suggestion intended to offer a method whereby they might breath some new life into their moribund movement, as well as really putting their money where their mouth has been for far too long. They could look at my suggestion as "personal secession" with some real skin in the game. And all that they'd have to do is take a two hour drive to MontrĂ©al; and, oh yeah, renounce their American citizenship.

 The State Department provides the outline for their "personal secession" process here.

Williams and Buck both know in their hearts that their grandiose dream of Vermont leaving the Union is more than over; virtually no one turns out for their stunts any longer and the tiny group of anti-VTANGers (despite efforts meant to inflate whatever support that they do have) seems destined for the same fate.
