Vermont secessionists form slate for state offices

According to the Associated Press (this link to the Los Angeles Times), Vermont secessionists are fielding candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and seven State Senate seats. They are not organized as a political party, but as an informal coalition. The spin on the article not surprisingly pooh-poohs their chances of winning -- but it marks another step forward for American secessionism. Vermont is only the second state in modern times (after Alaska and its Alaska Independence Party), to offer a secessionist slate of candidates for statewide office.

I can guarantee you that it will not be the last.
