How come it is that nobody gives a thought to how this will affect foreign relations . . . ? A divided USA will encourage enemies greatly.

1/2 our military, would still be the best in the world.
...China is claiming islands from Japan.
Egypt remilitarizing the Sinai.
Iran has been working on getting nucs for a DECADE,
even during Bush’s years.
Christians being killed from the Phillipines to Nigeria.
...and America as a “whole” does nothing.
With the Marxists allied with the Muslims, the economy of the world is being destroyed.
-
all evil requires, is for good men to do... nothing.
and right now, a LOT of good men, are effectively doing...
nothing.
-
a strong vibrant “half”, taking a much more active role,
would be of vastly greater benefit.

we are already divided. our allies, CANNOT count on us, from one election to the next.
(just as businesses, find it impossible to make long range plans)
a stable economy, and stable foreign policy our allies can trust and depend on, would be a vast improvement.
with the current polarization, it is simply impossible.

Precisely!

Why do you thing the Brits backed the Confederacy so hard during the Civil War. It had a lot more to do than the Limeys wanting to ensure cotton supplies for their textile factories. The British were becoming increasingly worried about growing American power and wanted to see the country split in two to neutralize the threat as they saw it.

Of course, considering that PM Viscount Palmerston was a devious, finagling, Machiavellian SOB this shouldn’t surprise anyone.

The Conservative nation that emerges should immediately write into it’s constitution(Hopefully we just commendere the existing one as our own since the Libs seem to hate it anyway) an article specifically forbidding membership in any such organization as a United Nations, League of Nations, or other such sovereignty underminding organizations. We can ford our own foreign relations without handwringing over what Belgium might think of us.

We're already about as divided as a nation can get without updating the maps.

The left wing freaks already encourage our enemies and it involves the entire country.

Let them do it to their own country if they want and leave the rest of us alone.

The south with the people that actually work will be the power house of the world. Nobody would dare try us.

The north with the deadbeats will be the world’s weakling. Nobody would want to waste their time, there is nothing to gain.
