The problem is, those who want to control will respect no boundary... if there were a separation, they would scheme to cross the border and abscond with the goods of the other, and war would ensue, much death and mayhem... hence a civil war is coming... fingers in ears... la, la, la, la, la, la, la.............................
Too true. A conservative group would thrive while the libs would quickly run out of other peoples money and then scheme to steal what they think should have been theirs.
War is not inevitable. Secession may be the best option, and freedom's enemies are (rather fortunately) such sissies that the odds of a peaceful separation are enhanced. We may want to look at whether (a) secession of the states that want freedom or (b) expulsion of the states that want to be controlled by a 'benevolent' dictator is more likely to be interpreted as a constitutionally-permissible tax by the Roberts Court. We may also want to carefully analyze all the helpful and harmful Supreme Court decisions of the past 200 years and write a Constitution that preserves the good ones while preventing the blunders and genuinely limiting federal authority to the specifically enumerated powers.
That’s what happened with India and Pakistan. Supposed to be separation of the new country Pakistan, was nothing of the kind since Amalek cannot be appeased only killed.
