The lessons of history.
In Vermont many secessionist groups met to discuss their much loved topic of breaking away from the US ‘Empire’ and creating their own nation. While the organizations seem to be all over the board politically they have the one unifying belief that our federal government no longer represents their needs and the only solution is to branch off. Now these are not just a bunch of Southerners as representatives from New England states, the Pacific Northwest, and Hawaii were in attendance proclaiming their distrust of Washington DC.
Although all seemed to be in agreement that war is not an option they seem to really believe that succession could be succesful in this day in age. As stupid as this sounds if Oregon, Florida, and/or New Jersey succeeded I don’t think anyone would care.
