    I have thought lately due to the strong divide in the country that would it be wise to break up the Nation into several Sub-Nations each controlling their own area in the manner that they want it to be. This would take away the control that DC has managed to take over. We would still be apart of the USA but so many power would be given back to the regions and the local people. The High Court would still be the place to go with problems and the Bill of Rights and the Constitution would still be the rule of law. I know the power problems would be hard to overcome but they would be as the understanding became more normal. This would remove the Congress but the Senate would remain. Kind of a strange idea but it is not a new one. Some futurist predicted that this would happen someday.

    Just what I was going to say.

    The so-called "states rights" does enormous harm but very little good.

    The US should decide if they really are "one nation, indivisible" or not.

    As it is, when some politician doesn't have the gumption to make a decision and stand up for it, he/she will say the states should decide for their own state but no others. And yet, all the states taxpayers have no choice but to support things with which we disagree.

    Ir was tried in 1861 but the USA disagreed.

    It already is divided into 50 small nations. We call them states. The United States is 50 states united under one federal alliance.

    Way too many dependencies on the Gubment and the Federal tax base for that to happen.

    It's time to actually break up the union. Three or four smaller countries would form. It's past time. There is a faction in the US that is hellbent on forcing their religion to become national policy so I say let them go form their own country. Call it FakeJesusLand or The New Confederacy of Slavery and Preachin'. Whatever. Outlaw all religions except theirs, put up a wall around their new country 30 feet high, and force all women regardless of age or if they were raped or by incest to carry a pregnancy to term.

    Go, be happy. This small but sizable cohort in the US is a ball and chain that keeps the rest of us from moving forward. They whine about everything. So go, be happy. Bitch to each other how you have now found your red state utopia with your huge wall and mandatory worship of guns.

    The rest of the world can then continue on with sane reality rather than 2,000 year old religious dogma.

    The left wing nations would end up 3rd world rat holes...then they would start invading the wealthier Conservative, better run nations....just like we saw in the 1940s onward...
