Over Century After Civil War, New Secession Movement

Breaking News

In an unlikely marriage of desire to secede from the United States, two advocacy groups from opposite political traditions — New England and the South — are sitting down to talk.

Tired of foreign wars and what they consider right-wing courts, the Middlebury Institute wants liberal states such as Vermont to be able to secede peacefully.

That sounds just fine to the League of the South, a conservative group that refuses to give up on Southern independence.

"We believe that an independent South, or Hawaii, Alaska, or Vermont, would be better able to serve the interest of everybody, regardless of race or ethnicity,'' said Michael Hill of Killen, Alabama, president of the League of the South.
