Apparently a number of candidates for state office - at least 7 so far - are calling for the state to secede and form its own independent nation.
Now, I'm in Texas, right? So you're sure that I'm talking about candidates for Texas state office, aren't you?
See, it seems that some Vermonters were sure that socialist utopia was going to manifest itself the minute President Obama took office. And since it has yet to materialize, they're tired of waiting and are prepared to take matters into their own hands. And, one would assume, deliver said utopia to the citizens of Vermont tout suite.
Good luck with that, guys.
