I want to move to Vermont and get out of the United States of Amalgamation. I want to live in the country I grew up in, where the libraries were open every day in every town, where no name-brand food was sold in any school cafeteria, where any good student in any school could plan on going to a good college. Where the ground was solid and the leaders tried to hide their marginal corruption. Where the unions were powerful and Republicans were weak.
Where a beast like Ann Coulter would not in a million years be considered for the cover of Time Magazine.
