WHEREAS All people are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, and among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; and
WHEREAS Food is human sustenance and is the fundamental prerequisite to life; and
WHEREAS The basis of human sustenance rests on the ability of all people to save seed, grow, process, consume and exchange food and farm products; and
WHEREAS We the People of Vermont, have an obligation to protect these rights as is the Common and Natural Law; and in recognition of the State’s proud agricultural heritage; and the necessity of agricultural, ecological and economic diversity and sustainability to a free and healthy Society;
THEREFORE, Be it resolved, that We The People, stand on our rights under the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution and reject such Federal decrees, statutes, regulations or corporate practices that threaten our basic human right to save seed, grow, process, consume and exchange food and farm products within the State of Vermont; and,
Be it further resolved, that We The People, shall resist any and all infringements upon these rights, from whatever sources that are contrary to the rights of the People of the State of Vermont.
Blessed be the state of Vermont.

Yes, blessed be the state of Vermont…they might see a rise in population if the Fed doesn’t change its policy….think I’ll move there. Hmmmmm.
lol… you might enjoy Bill Kaufman’s new book, Bye Bye Miss American Empire
I reviewed it in light of other secession movements:
Good pick! Right timing with the passing of HR3082 with S 510 attached. Great Blog! keep up the good reporting! “WHEREAS We the People of Vermont, have an obligation to protect these rights as is the Common and Natural Law; and in recognition of the State’s proud agricultural heritage; and the necessity of agricultural, ecological and economic diversity and sustainability to a free and healthy Society” YES, this goes for every Human Being! Peace, Vt4Evolution
thx, Simha ~ like your site, too — nice piece on population and CO2 emissions. Makes perfect sense: the most pollutive nations have low or slow population growth rates
When I read this article I suddenly felt there was a ray of hope in the face of all the disastrous legislation that has been passed in government recently.
With any luck they can hold out against big Ag and the rest of the corrupt corporations until a few other states join them with their own food sovereignty acts.
I will keep my fingers crossed.
Excellent blog as always. Very informative and very professional.
hey, thx for the kudos, its.
yeah, this is what we need more of… people standing together against tyranny.
