Republic of Vermont: "The Switzerland of North America"

In high school, Ben (my brother, as you all probably know), Ryan (his current boss, as it turns out) and I had grand ideas about California seceding from the nation. We finally decided this state is actually too good for the government to let us go peacefully. Maybe not too good, but at least too important to the U.S. economy.

Vermont, on the other hand, not so. Enough people there want to declare independence to have caught the attention of the media (especially today, for some reason). I don't exactly see why this is big news all of a sudden, because the article seems to be referencing town meetings that will take place in March. Do they mean March of next year?

In any case, I'd like to see more states secede. Traveling would be more fun.
