If Vermont leaves the Union it will be setting it self up for diasaster because: it has no real big Industries, no land tracts for large scale agricultural production, not a lot of land space for any industry. You need industry for money and agric. for food. This sounds not to good for Vermont or the U.S because it would mean we are losing our National Unity. I know the U.S isn't Perfect but leaving the Union won't necessarialy fix all the problems. look at the Atebellum era and the civil war era.
