    Quarter of Americans believe it’s time for U.S. to split into separate red, blue countries

    25% approve. These numbers are not surprising are they seeing how the LEFT continues its remorseless attack. This is a Rasmussen poll. I would put myself in the somewhat favor section
    That is because the relationship is TOXIC and the attacks did not start with the right, it started with the LEFT trying to destroy the country, which is what a socialist revolutionary does, it is how they work.

    I think that the country would have to be split into three: the east coast, the west coast, and the heartland. Or maybe New England could join Canada, the west coast could be a socialist peoples republic, and the rest could be a republic, just sayin’

    If the country splits I will stick with the republic side. I am not ready for a Godless, borderless, socialist, Sodom and Gomorrah America.

    what is the Lord saying in all of this? I mean, He has allowed Joe Biden to be elected as POTUS, and did not stop this, even though He most certainly could have?

    My state is primarily Democrat except 4 counties that are republican( always have been and always be). Under chris christy I observed subtle police state like enforcements being imposed on the citizenry all designed to make a buck. Cops were used to make it happen. My God, check points became a regular exercise. It started to feel we were living in a police state. I could go on but this all changed when a Democrat became the governor.

    Preamble

    Outlines a general philosophy of government that justifies revolution when government harms natural rights.[85]

    The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
    "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."[86]

    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,--That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

    I have repeatedly said in the past that some form of secession must be implemented to avoid a real civil war. And that will quickly turn into a race war.

    It is not as though that is just a thought. If it isn't done, war will be the result. The divide is to great. No bridge can span it. Neither side can stand or live with the other.

    A way must be provided to allow the conservative Christian right to live under the form of government it wants to. And to allow the atheistic liberal left to live under the form of government it wants to.

    I imagine the sorting out of such splitting up will be a horrid mess. Your going to have major conservative communities in rural areas, and deeply socialist liberal ones concentrated in large cities. You think Brexit was tough to deal with... Of course if it really becomes a shooting war, the numbers of refugees would be in the millions.

    There is no easy answer. To do nothing will not solve the problem. But, nothing is what is going to be done by the government as a whole. All will make a pretense how united we are as they sing 'battle hymn of the republic'. The whole time the pot is about to explode.

    One way would be to just give back power to the States to govern as they want to. Quit trying to govern by Federal interference. If a State supreme court decides, quit trying to override it by the Supreme Court. Thus each state will take on a conservative or liberal life. But, it won't happen. Government never gives back power.
