Why don’t we just secede? I’m sure that could be a bipartisan effort, the libs hate us just as much as we hate them. Solid blue states became a new nation, solid red states become a new nation, purple states choose which to belong to through popular vote. Open borders for the first few years for blue state conservatives/red state liberals to migrate over. What’s the issue here?
The issue is Washington doesn’t want to give up its dictatorial power (as dysfunctional for everyone else as it is), and those of us who haven’t quite got the clue thou their head that we can’t compromise.
Then there are of course those still attached to the sentimental bonds of union of which i suspect there may still be a great many particularly among those oblivious to the extraordinary and growing cost.
