From 1777 to 1791, Vermont was its own Republic. Now, in 2010, a group of Vermonters is fighting to secede from the United States. Their goal is to save the Green Mountain State from centralized control and establish the Vermont Second Republic. The secessionists believe that the United States of America, which they refer to as the United States of Empire, isn’t the pinnacle of democracy it once was and that Vermont would do better as an independent republic.

Too bad Aunt Marion sold her farm to the developers instead of my Mom. Imagine how life would have been different? I could be in the thick of an active secessionist movement. Vermont may be the first out. Vermont was the promised land in my novel “CHURCH 10●19●62”. So those of you, who slogged through it, know how Vermont could use its advantages to lead in the future. Wish I was there to help. Argh!

While network correspondents complain about the unfairness of independent advertising, they might ponder the unfairness of their habitual tendency to omit or downplay bad news for Team Obama, especially in the crucial last weeks of a campaign. Consider some of the latest stories that would have drawn much more attention and media hostility if the shoe was on the Republican foot:

■ Oil spill incompetence or dishonesty.

■ Delayed Democrat ethics trials.

■ More John Edwards subpoenas.

■ Stimulus dollars for the dead.

■ Big setback in trying terror suspects.

Just business as usual in the District of Corruption.
