I don't see why we just don't split the country down the middle, and each side go to the one they want to be on. They could even have their own
separate governments. I mean I keep hearing how the country "is so divided". Then fine. Let's divide the damn thing physically and be DONE with
And right in the middle there could be the Demilitarized Zone, too.
The democrats can tax themselves to death and have a massive government handing out what they don't have, and come crying and screaming over the
boarder when the money runs out. Except this time we'd tell them to go straight to hell.
The big problem with that is most Republicans don't realize that their party would ruin them. While they stand firm on certain freedoms, while
blocking freedoms for certain groups, they would absolutely destroy the working class given the chance. And the Democrats would over-regulate and tax
into non-functionality, while stripping freedome (like guns) but granting others (like gay marriage.)
The Red states would be completely dysfunctional without the blue states propping them up. On average, "red states" receive nearly $2 in federal
money for every tax dollar paid. The blue states, no longer burdened with propping up the red, would have plenty of revenue in comparison to
expenditures - until they found a way to inefficiently spend that money too.
No, the balance bbetween the two opposing dysfunctional forces is better than splitting the extremes into two easily-destroyed halves. A better
solution would be to take the 70% of Americans who are capable of thinking, and allow them to stay, while sending the 30% to Mexico. (I know, not
gonna happen) - the thing is, very few people agree with everything either party stands for. Those who do are anti-American scum, no better than the
terrorist politicians in DC. A true American would support the 2nd Amendment and "marriage equality." a smart American would want corporations
reigned in, to have less rights than citizens, not more. A wise American would want capitalism, but in a form which doesn't continue to make the
"bottom 99.8%" less wealthy every year while the top 0.2% continue to hoard more and more.
Extremists, both left and right, are simply idiots, and are harming the US more than al Queda could ever hope to. Lemmings believe in keeping certain
rights while keeping other rights away from certain people. Lemmings also believe we should give continuously to prop up those who don't deserve help
(ex, people living out their entire lives on disability because they're "too fat" to work), rather than helping people get back on their feet
temporarily to become productive again. I'm so sick of people who side with "right" or "left" as though more than a small fraction of either
party's ideals are of any use.
