I have always suspected that the right to Secede thing was a myth anyway and I have never been able to find any thing definitive about it. but there has long been a strong Secessionist movement in VT. It's a fun thought but I doubt anything would come of it. It's just a really different culture than in much of america. It is the only state with no mcdonalds in the capital and there is a law against billboards. The house just passed a single payer healtcare bill too. First state to officially allow same sex unions, Although we kind of wimped out with 'civil unions' instead of marriage but...

So the movement didn't stop but the (possibly mythical) constituional right to Secede did.

It's still there.  I am a Conch Republic Ambassador, and have the license plate to prove it!  (Like everything else in the Keys, it's a state of mind)

And I thought everyone in Key West was saying "Cock Republic"...

You know, because of all the roosters.
