Unless the country suddenly reverts back to what it is supposed to be - a federation of soverign states - I think a split may be necessary.
If we could get 2/3 of the states together, they could simply abolish the federal government in it’s current form... and start over.
Interesting. If a split does occur, 0bama will have his Abraham Lincoln moment once again.
Yes - all Democrats should be sent to California - the rest of us conservatives can go about on re-building the Republic! In time, CA will drop off into the ocean -
If a split does occur, I would blame the Republicans for it just as much as the Democrats. The GOP lost sight of its own Conservative foundations and opened the door for this whole thing.

Wasn’t that the whole point to posting this crap???? To blame Republicans...
A split, the balkanization of the republic, will destroy any credible military capability we have, will seriously damage our economy, and will lead to the destruction of our infrastructure. The Federal Government, in its current form (by that I mean size and scope) was never meant to exist. Only the laziness of a large part of the citizenry permits it to this day.
I eagerly support a breakup. Co-existence with the Left is not possible. The federal government is tainted and cannot be fixed. The separate states need to reassert themselves.
If it does, we get to keep The Constitution and the Founding Fathers.
They can have Marin County.
To paraphrase the great Peter Clemeza concerning the left:
‘These things gotta happen every 100 years or so, . Helps to get rid of the bad blood. Been 140 years since the last one. You know, you gotta stop them at the beginning. Like they should have stopped Hitler at Munich, they should never let him get away with that, they was just asking for trouble.’
The current path of the country is unsustainable and inevitable. We will need a RADICAL change in the way government in structured and paid for if this country is to survive.
There is no end to outrageous ideas. They are not likely to be achieved peacefully or legally. Most will not willingly allow changes that endanger their lives .......
Oh, wait Health care passed, now we are destroying 1/3 of our nuclear weapons and we are not producing new ones, We have a Muslim president. No one can argue he was raised Muslim (Islam), and defends all things Islam, and criticizes all things Christian.
Maybe we better rethink what is and has occurred. Our freedom and liberty has a menacing black cloud hovering over us called new taxation. We are in a position to have the government take most all our money earned for taxes and to tax us out of our homes, via the EPA and new regulations forcing the cities to tax much more (taxing on rainwater run off. For everyone. When the states increase taxes, the city taxes increase, the school tax increases, property taxes increase, gasoline taxes increases, heating and air conditioning taxes raise substantially, sales taxes increase, airport taxes increase, transportation taxes raises the price of food, medical expenses increases, etc. ... income taxes increases, and social security is cut back, carbon taxes are levied, and coming is the UNITED NATIONS taxes/world tax to pay our share as we are a rich nation. !!!!!! Then suddenly everyone will wake up and say "WHAT HAPPENED?" TOO LATE. FREEDOM LOST IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO RECOVER. ALL SORTS OF CHANGES TO OUR AUTOMOBILES, AND HIGH FEES FOR THOSE NOT COMPLING BY BUYING SMALL HYBRID CARS, CHANGES REQUIRED IN OUR HOMES/WINDOWS, HEATING/ AIR CONDITIONING/ KITCHEN APPLIANCES/ WASHERS/ DRYERS, ETC. Do not shrug this off ... it is right now on the planning drawing boards and the steps to do this is in process. Implemented quickly. Etc. and ETC. God help us in our day, in Jesus name, Amen.
Wow - didn’t know this was being openly discussed...
I haven’t read enough yet, but how in the world would we “Split” when we are interspersed as we are? I’m guessing if it’s a “traditional split” like back during the Civil War with those wanting Obama & the Dems up North - I would need to go South (I’m in Wisconsin!!!).
I should say, reading through the thread I’m not convinced there is not remedy available to us still, without any need for a split at this time.
