How can anyone be a conservative Republican in Vermont? Must be like a secret society.

Not exactly "Secret" but we are very few in numbers.

My tagline (which somehow got erased) used to say: "One of only 15 or so Conservatives in Vermont"

That may be a slight exageration, but there are not many of us as evidenced by the overwhelming numbers (60%+)who voted for the Community Agitator in Chief in 08.

Until Vermont's only statewide Newspaper (Burlington Free Press--BFP) changed their rules in the begining of December (mostly to stop the few of us Cons from posting comments) and insisted we join Facebook and divulge our true identity, I posted comments for 4 years.

Of course in those 4 years, I had to assume different screen names/identity at least over 100 times as I contiued to get "Ghosted" over and over.

It didn't help that I continually criticized the BFP (part of Gannett) for refusing to publish even ONE article in 4 years which was slightly "embarassing" to he who they supported and "protected at all costs," Dear Leader and which I regularly referred to it as Pravda-lite, Bird Cage Liner and "The Rag." lol

Having grown up here in the 50's/60's VT used to be a right of center/moderate state.

That all changed when "Bronx Bernie" (Sanders) moved here and ran for political office.

To compound the problem, the Legislature passed a law allowing students (even though not residents) to vote and as we are all well aware, those young skulls full of mush (having been brainwashed) tend to vote for the "RATS"

And the rest, as the ol' saw goes, is history.

Had hoped to relocate to Florida this year, but family committments prevented that, though I'm leaving Monday for 3 months and next year, I WILL depart this People's Socialist Republic of Utopina Moonbats, for good.
