Todays this is seen as a nutty gadfly joke. But i predict it’s a fight in reality in 20 years. The trend all around the world is breakups. USSR, Balkans, etc. It’s been nonstop for the last 20 years.
When the East Coast Ivy establishment continually ignores and belittles the red states, when they “rule” as an elite of our “betters”, then they are rife with corruption and dishonesty, when they aggressively use laws and regulations to attack red state industries,,,, a separation is in the cards.
What was it Gandhi said?
First the ignore you.
Then, they laugh at you.
Then, they fight you.
Then, you win.
We get farther apart every year. It is my earnest hope that no one is stupid enough to throw down the gauntlet. But the situation is far more advanced than people realize. It just isn't in these people's DNA to sit down and come to a win-win agreement. They are all zero-sum thinkers that require anyone who disagrees with them to lose for them to win, and the bigger the loss, the better.

This whole Benghazi mess is a perfect example. Obama needed someone to go under the bus, and Petraeus had already tried to throw Obama under simply by not falling on his sword and taking the blame. So his affair comes to light. That Hideous Strength, C.S. Lewis.
Another example is the new CEO of Lockheed. He embarrassed Obama by announcing layoffs right before the election.
Remember that word, "revenge" Obama and Jarrett kept throwing around?
This is our future. No leader actually taking responsibility for his decisions, or truly leading with an honest appraisal of costs. Rather, a constant search for someone to blame and a complicit media ready to do whatever it takes to advance the leftist agenda at other people's expense.
