Civil War, Take Two

Well, stranger things have happened, I suppose. Apparently there is a serious secessionist movement in Vermont, of all places. Of course it's doomed to failure - but as a stand, even symbolic, against an overly powerful federal government, I'm all for it. Besides, it would be interesting to see what the process is - or, rather, what legal doubletalk the feds would resort to to deny a state its right to secede. Not to mention, it will be barrels of fun watching New Englanders twist themselves into logical knots explaining why it's OK for Vermont to secede, but would have been a crime to let North Carolina leave back in 1861. Have fun with that, y'all!
