“The Second Vermont Republic has a clear, if not simple, mission:
“Our primary objective is to extricate Vermont peacefully from the
United States as soon as possible.” The SVR people are not doing this
to “make a point” or to stretch the boundaries of debate. They
really want out.”

“We the citizens of Vermont peacefully and respectfully call for a
statewide convention of democratically elected representatives to
consider one and only one issue — the withdrawal of Vermont from the
United States of America and a return to its status as an independent
republic as was the case in 1791. Once the declaration of secession has
been approved by a two-thirds majority, Vermont’s governor will be
empowered to negotiate a separation agreement with the U.S. Secretary
of State.”
