One Nation under God, indivisible '?
World Net Daily ^ | 10/22/2008 | Joseph Farrah

I've lived through some turbulent years of American history, but I have never seen our country more polarized, more divided, more ripe for – dare I say it? – breakup, dissolution, a secessionist movement. I admit I'm unafraid of radical ideas – if those radical ideas are just, righteous, moral and godly. I believe it's time for radical ideas – just as it was time in 1776. Frankly, I don't see a way to unite a people as divided as Americans are today. We are trying to pretend we're one nation when we are really two. One of those two nations clings to the promises and covenants of the past, the Bible, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, as the guiding principles. The other believes in and lives with no immutable standards. It's not a Republican vs. Democrat split – as the current election illustrates. I know many Republicans would find themselves more comfortable in the country of no standards. I also suspect many Democrats would actually find themselves more at home in the nation of the Bible, Declaration and Constitution. Isn't it time for separation? Is the breakup of the union really such a difficult thing to consider?

Isn't it time for separation? Is the breakup of the union really such a difficult thing to consider? When there are no new lands to discover, what choice do we have?

....

There's only one way to recapture the greatness of America. That is to start over – with only those willing to play by the rules. Let those who don't believe in rules have their own country to destroy.

If the time has not arrived, it is close. The split needs to be approached as a 'divestiture' -- succession isn't a PC term.

The transfer of populations between red and blue should be handled as an in-kind swap. For example, someone that is Blue in Texas could work out a property swap with someone who is Red in California. A joint agency between the 2 nations could facillitate this.

Also, state boundaries would be rewritten, as this event would transcend the current boundaries, down to the county level (simiilar to the VA/W.VA arrangement).

I would open the discussion up to Canadian provinces as well (red Alberta, blue Quebec) for example.
