I think it’s time to give serious consideration to secession. The polarization is too deep. The other side too clear that they are morally superior. Yes the divorce will be hard. But if you think dividing of the community property and debts is difficult now just imagine what it’s going to be like after we make the deficit permanent.
I have spent most of my life understanding the mindset of many sides in debates, but no longer can comprehend the mindset of the other side. They are beyond me. I do not wish to be associated with these people. I want out.
Those of us in the secular, industrial, innovate, educated blue states need to decide. Do we wish to go for this ride? We pay for the red states. Do we really wish to fund their anti-secular, anti-diversity, anti-little-guy agenda? Do we want the wealth distribution of Arkansas to become the national standard?
Some political actors work by polarization. Terrorists for example. The forces of polarization have done their work in this country and they aren’t done yet. I say let them go.
