Skip to comments.Does U.S. Need To Split Along Political Lines?

Ten years ago I asked the following question in a column titled "It's Time To Part Company":
"If one group of people prefers government control and management of people's lives and another prefers liberty and a desire to be left alone, should they be required to fight, antagonize one another, risk bloodshed and loss of life in order to impose their preferences or should they be able to peaceably part company and go their separate ways?"
The problem that our nation faces is very much like a marriage where one partner has broken, and has no intention of keeping, the marital vows. Of course, the marriage can remain intact and one party tries to impose his will on the other and engage in the deviousness of one-upmanship. Rather than submission by one party or domestic violence, a more peaceable alternative is separation.
I believe we are nearing a point where there are enough irreconcilable differences between those Americans who want to control other Americans and those Americans who want to be left alone that separation is the only peaceable alternative. Just as in a marriage, where vows are broken, our human rights protections guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution have been grossly violated by a government instituted to protect them.
The Democrat-controlled Washington is simply an escalation of a process that has been in full stride for at least two decades. There is no evidence that Americans who are responsible for and support constitutional abrogation have any intention of mending their ways.
You say, "Williams, what do you mean by constitutional abrogation?" Let's look at just some of the magnitude of the violations.

the red state/blue state civil war has no end.
Secession of the South, the political will grows daily
How bout all the socialist and Obama supporters just leave the country and go to some country where they believe socialism is “working”. While the people who believe in the Constitution stay here in America.
We can be nice and pay for their one way ticket out of here.
I propose we take the results from the 2010 election and blue counties go to the libs and red counties go to the conservatives. And then we can fix the isolated locations through trade, county for county.
YES UM’. the South shall rise again..
why is NC in texas? NC went for Obama and had a Dem controlled State Senate and State house, Dem Gov and 1 Dem Senator
India and Pakistan are not at peace with each other.
Looks like the kind of map I can get behind...lol
No. If you want government to take care of you, there are plenty of either countries where you can go. But you’re not taking any part of America with you.
Shoot, I’ll have to move. Southern Indiana looks good.
Yes indeed. I think it time to evaluate and do what is in the best interest of all people. If it be separate then we should do so immediately.

We already tried that didn’t we? Didn’t work out though.
It really comes down to this: My conservative political philosophy does not threaten or affect the freedom of liberals. I dont ask them to sacrifice anything for me, but they DEMAND I sacrifice for them
