Second Vermont Republic

Thomas Naylor, founder of the current Vermont independence movement, writes:

The U.S. Empire is going down -- with or without Vermont. The federal government has lost its moral authority. It is owned, operated, and controlled by Corporate America. National and Congressional elections are bought and sold to the highest bidders.

Vermont is no exception to this rule.

Nationally, we have a single political party, the Republican Party, disguised as a two-party system. The Democratic Party is effectively brain dead, having had no new ideas since the 1960s.

The United States of America has become unsustainable politically, economically, agriculturally, socially, culturally, and environmentally. It is also ungovernable and, therefore, unfixable.

Go saoraid!

Vermont, anarchism, anarchosyndicalism,
