True. Several states tried, and the northern union states took great issue with it.

Of course, Key West (Conch Republic) has beat Vermont to it.

Well, tell THAT to the Founding Fathers. They were the ultimate seapartists...good thing for us they were.

In fact one of the Founding Fathers (I cannot recall which one - no coffee yet), said that on occasion revolution is needed.

We were established as a Representative Republic. Those that wished to transfer power from the public to the government, via the mob, manipulated the citizens into accepting the falsehood that America is a Democracy.
