Future Map of America *Vanity*
Me | Wednesday, January 3, 2012

Posted on 01/02/2013 12:26:46 PM PST by MinorityRepublican



TOPICS:
KEYWORDS:
The American Empire has grown too fast, and the fault lines at home are stressed to the breaking point. The war of words between Right and Left has collapsed into a shooting war, though most people just want to be left alone.

When the American dream shatters into violence, who can hold the people and the government together? And which side will you be on?

We are no longer a Republic, we are an Empire, just like Roman Empire, things move faster these days too, it won;t take 500 years for the Empire to collapse, this time it will take less than 50...

"Nation of Hollywood" (California) should be changed to Mexifornia, based on its demographics.

Hollywood should be a small nation located within Mexifornia, I guess...

From "South Park":

Robert Redford: Like termites, we will move this film festival from town to town until we have used it up. And then move on, until every quiet mountain town is like Los Angeles.

Phyllis: Why? Why would we do such a thing?

Robert Redford: Because we have to live in L.A. And if we can't live in quiet, simple, peaceful mountain towns, then nobody will! [Laughs maniacally] Waitwaitwait. Zoom in to a close-up of my face when I do that. Ready? Then NOBODY will! [the camera moves in as he laughs maniacally again] That's it.

I think your Map may break up the USA a Little too much.

I see Coastal California with Coastal Oregon and Washington forming a New California Republic.

While New England forms a New England Confederation or Joins Canada.

Will Middle America and the South Form a Confederation of some sort. Call it the C.S.A. if you Must but it would be different.

We would have a Union with Alberta and Saskatchewan to link up with Alaska.

As for the Great Lake States and Hawaii. I do not know.

The Red States in the middle of America will form a collective? Get real.

Also the Industrial States should be correctly named the "Formerly Industrialized States".

Based on the fact that the USSR took 70 years to collapse, and comparing where they were in terms of total wealth, my over/under on US collapse is 120 years.

I think your Map may break up the USA a Little too much.

Probably. It's hard to see why Colorado would want to be all by its lonesome, or why Kentucky or Tennessee wouldn't want to be part of a larger country.

I see Coastal California with Coastal Oregon and Washington forming a New California Republic.

From the outside it may look like they have the same politics, but the Northwest really doesn't like LA. Northern California doesn't either. It has to do with water, but it goes a lot further than that. And the name? Nobody in Oregon would want to be part of a California anything.

Will Middle America and the South Form a Confederation of some sort. Call it the C.S.A. if you Must but it would be different.

I don't see the Great Plains going the same way as the Deep South. Again, whatever the politics, the cultures are too different, and Dakotans (say) would get really sick of having to travel to a capitol in Alabama or Georgia or even Texas.

If the country breaks up there will be other fissures opening up, and there would be no reason why all the red states or all the blue states would stick together.

We would have a Union with Alberta and Saskatchewan to link up with Alaska.

That I don't see happening. First, Saskatchewan and Alberta, so far as I know have very different politics. Saskatchewan has been more socialistic for decades. Secondly, I don't see Alberta wanting to swap being the odd man out in Canada (most free market province) for being the odd man out (most "Canadian") in some successor state to the US -- to go from being the Texans of Canada, to being the Ontarians in some post-American country. I don't see Alberta joining any Southern-based Confederation, thought they might join with some of the Plains and Western states in something that might try to combine the American and Canadian ways.

Need a third dimension.
It shows our red areas as being nearly unpopulated, while people are stacked on top of each other in some of the darker blue areas - the urban hells.

Uh Uh, no. Mexico will be absorbed into America if pandering politicians and presidents have their way.

It's back: Texas in 'Super Highway' deal with Spain

Snip: In 2009, Perry scrapped the TTC plan after a series of combative town hall meetings throughout the state showed TxDOT it faced massive taxpayer resistance.

But now, the plan apparently is being implemented in small chunks, without the fanfare of divulging a statewide blueprint Perry and TxDOT may still have tucked away in their back pockets.

So you don't think the Map I just made is valid? :(

Being a First Generation American, I just must not understand why the Civil War divided America so.

I grew up hearing tales of Russians killing Poles, Catholic Hungarians fighting Prussian Protestants. Endless divisions, but here in America we say that West Virgina couldn't get along with Montana?

I have always thought Kansans got along well with Alabamians, it is the "Why" of why we are Americans is what is important and I think Our States understand that.

While the Blue Democrat states, they don't, all they want is Freebies and Marxism.

Go for it guys.

I have to actually really disagree with the red state vs blue state narrative. When I watched the results coming in, what I noticed was more urban vs suburban/rural. Especially in swing states like Ohio. But even still, large swathes of Texas went Democrat. I think America, if it is divided geographically, is divided more on urban lines. Sadly America may in fact be more divided along racial lines (black and Hispanic vs white); and worse still, on the vague lines of the takers vs the makers.

True, but even more from the northeast (NY, NJ, etc.). I sometimes call it Calirado. The environmentalism, animal worship, regulations and corruption in the middle of nowhere are communistic, indeed.

If any of the new gun control bills pass in Colorado, boycott it! Don’t vacation in Colorado, unless you want to feed the commies. And for anyone thinking of moving to the State, check the local county offices for regulations first (environmental health, planning, building, etc.).

Being a First Generation American, I just must not understand why the Civil War divided America so.

Slavery?

I grew up hearing tales of Russians killing Poles, Catholic Hungarians fighting Prussian Protestants. Endless divisions, but here in America we say that West Virgina couldn't get along with Montana?

You pretty much imply New York or Vermont and Oklahoma or Mississippi can't get along, why be surprised if other states can't? I didn't mention those West Virginia and Montana, but now that you mention it having to cross international borders a few times to drive from one to the other might convince them that they really don't need to belong to the same rump country.

Of course you could fly, but the point is, once you start breaking up the country, talk about "the Real America" won't count for much any more. There might be some resolve in the beginning to create a conservative "real America" that unites the states that are currently Republican, but I don't see it lasting. Get a new flag, get a new capital, get new institutions, and different states and regions will start to wonder about just what does hold them together.

Talk about Washington or Jefferson or Lincoln will sound quite hollow if we couldn't keep their country together and can't visit their capital or homes without a passport. It's sweet to talk about a common ideology, but if ideology couldn't save the US, it's not going to save some big, ungainly successor state.

People come together against a common opponent. Without the blue states to fight against the red states will come to ask what really holds them together, what they really have in common. And the same thing will happen in the blue states without their common enemy. Little differences that don't amount for much now are going to seem more significant when today's differences don't matter anymore.

If being part of a world power couldn't keep us together when we needed to we'll have gone over a major cliff and there won't be much need for Idaho and Mississippi or North Dakota and South Carolina to stay together simply because they don't like New York or California when the latter are out of the picture (I suspect the rural states and urban states don't really dislike each other as much as people think, though).

If Idaho and Mississippi or North Dakota and South Carolina don't have to be part of the same country and get together to vote against New York or California and if the big "American idea" breaks up, they'll find that they have different interests and different values and go their own separate ways. Once you get beyond the idea of sending your money to Washington, are you really going to settle for sending it to some other, new capital for other, new bureaucrats to mess with, or are you going to want to spend it closer to home with people who really have more in common with you?

Sorry, I should have phrased that better.

What I meant was that the Civil War STILL divides America.

Why Georgians Still hate Indianians for Burning Atlanta?

That is the kind of Sh!t you have over in Europe.

I thought our values pulled us together better than that.

"Talk about Washington or Jefferson or Lincoln will sound quite hollow if we couldn't keep their country together and can't visit their capital or homes without a passport. It's sweet to talk about a common ideology, but if ideology couldn't save the US, it's not going to save some big, ungainly successor state."

Maybe your right. I just thought we could pull together as a country better than that.

The Founders wanted Federalism, like what you describe of NOT sending your money to some far off Rome to divvy up to its favorites.

Washington D.C. had grown fat off the Labor of Kansas, Tennessee and Michigan.

Yet they party like its 1999, our system is broken and you are right the longer that goes the more animosity is going to build up.

I don’t disagree with that. Just trying to say that if the country splits up, it could really split up. That’s not to say that Colorado would become its own country, but the unravelling could be hard to stop once it gets started.

Southerners don't hate Indianians for the Civil War, just that the South had to be reattached, kicking and screaming, to this socialist statist thugocracy union at the point of a bayonet.

with due respect, we don't know that. It's possible, see what happened to us from 2008

My point was that just as the US turned left (Obama), Canada went right, so saying the Canadians would want New England now, is not quite correct.
