First of all, I was in Vermont twice in 2007 and secondly, what I am about to say is not an attack or reference to the entire state of VT. However, Vermont is a haven for drug users and people with less than balanced thought patterns. The towns of Brattleboro and Marlboro just voted to indict President George W Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. Here is the actual statement that was voted on:
“Shall the Selectboard instruct the Town Attorney to draft indictments against President Bush and Vice President Cheney for crimes against our Constitution, and publish said indictment for consideration by other municipalities? And shall it be the law of the Town of Brattleboro that the Brattleboro Police, pursuant to the above-mentioned indictments, arrest and detain George Bush and Richard Cheney in Brattleboro if they are not duly impeached, and extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them.”

Here is some more information from a local news source:
“Up in the town of Marlboro, VT, population 1000, the town constable may have a new job. If President George W. Bush, or Vice President Dick Cheney should happen to stop by there, perhaps to pick up some freshly made maple syrup or maple sugar candy, he’d have to arrest them. Last night, the citizens of Marlboro voted in their annual town meeting to indict both men for war crimes, obstruction of justice and perjury. The vote was 43-25, with three abstentions.
Residents of nearby Brattleboro, population 12,000, did the same, voting 2012-1795.”

Now for my position. I cannot speak for the entire state of NC, but I believe many of the good people of North Carolina are of the same beliefs. I consider this an insult and attack on the president and vice president of the United States, our president and vice president. I would think twice about entering the state of NC. Remember, some of you talk a good talk, but we have a strong tradition of fighting for the establishment and safety of this country. This goes back prior to, during and after the American Revolution and includes my direct ancestors. I condemn your action and consider you cowards and traitors. Clear?
The South shall rise again!!
My ancestors fought for freedom on the side of the South 150 years ago. I am proud of what they did, just as I am proud of what the people of Vermont have done – and to try to imply that Vermonters are all druggies and a bit crazy, is just plain ignorant. I do not live in Vermont, but I’ve camped there many times. What I have seen is a friendly – and very independent, freedom-loving people, many of whom have fought and died for this country and your remarks about them are shameful. Where do you get off claiming that North Carolina has cornered the market on patriotism? It’s plain arrogant and ignorant to think you have and insults the sacrifice by many people in all the states who disagree with you.
There are people from Vermont dying in Iraq right now to protect your freedom and mine. And they are doing it because George Bush, in an act of extreme cowardice and moral bankruptcy, attacked another country without provocation. He demeaned the United States, wasted our tax dollars and cost more American lives than the terrorists took on 9/11. He did exactly what the terrorists wanted him to do – run scared. That’s the goal of the terrorists and boy he and Cheney have fulfilled their every wish, doing far more damage to this country than that little band of fanatics could ever have done on their own. And Dick Cheney is a very brave man when it comes to shooting birds, but when it was his turn to serve in the military he dodged it like the coward and war profiteer that he is.
Open your eyes.
You’ve been taken in by two slick, fear-mongering con artist. Thank God their are people like those in Vermont who are still willing to stand up for this country and its basic values of freedom.
It can’t happen anytime too soon for me. The b–tards should be hung upside down as they deserve.
They need to take the new administration and old along with them.
We just lost another constitutional rights. Illegal searches are now legal?
our world is in serious trouble and we are all sinking like in quicksand.
God help us all. They are replacing evil with EVIL
