For those of you who missed it, what happened that last dreadful November was - Red America seceded from Western Civilization. The states of the Old Confederacy and their Rocky Mountain Western cousins, (they call the music Country and Western), have never really accepted the values system created by Democratic Capitalism and they finally got their Messiah to lead them out into the Sinai Penisula. Unfortunately, when Red America dropped out they dragged Blue America with them. Thomas Friedman had a column recently where he called Europe the "...world's biggest Blue State." Right. Democracy and capitalism make you Blue. Every country in the world with a democratic government and a capitalist economy is Blue like me. Not Red. The New Confederacy has refused to relinquish the old values of racism, sexism and religious bigotry held dear by the Old Confederacy. Which leaves us where? We are two peoples now. Not one people divided over issues. We are two peoples and we should be two nations.
