What in God’s name ever happened to the Green Mountain state? The liberals, academics and “flatlander” transplants that have moved to Vermont are now spear-heading a session movement. What would anyone expect from a state that now elects socialist politicians. It is unbelievable what has happened to this state in the past 30 years. If the “People’s Republic of Vermont” want to secede, let them take their maple syrup and go.
Vermont, which was historically conservative, has evolved into one of the nation’s most liberal states since the latter part of the 20th century, a tie-dyed bastion of countercultural dissent and New England self-reliance where folks wear their hearts – and their anti-war stickers – on their Subaru station wagon bumpers.
