Secession - Time to say good-bye
« on: December 01, 2016, 08:03:13 am »

Fairly good article about the increasing polarization of the population - and not just in America. From a Canadian point of view that is quite refreshing.

Moreover, I think the time is approaching when we will have to address this issue one way or the other whether we want to or not. It would be nice to think we can do it peacefully and in a civilized manner. But as the links above show, Iím not real clear on just how civilized the guys on team liberal can act. Frankly, Iím unclear as to whether or not the word is even in their vocabulary. I suppose time will tell.

But whether we want to address it or not the reality is our societies are evenly and very clearly divided. The purpose of elections has now become a contest to see which political ideology can wield the hammer of state so that it can subjugate one side to the other. So perhaps instead of spending the next four to eight years in both countries trying to shore up our defenses so that when the other side wins back the hammer it is harder for them to beat us with it maybe we should just start drawing up the framework to go our separate ways? From my perspective, particularly in the US at this stage, it is better for conservatives of all stripes to begin this dialogue from a position of political power. Not because you wield the hammer of state but because the dialogue right now can be viewed as more honest. Under the current circumstances you canít be accused of leaving because you are a Ďsore loserí and in the case of those liberal enclaves who might like to leave you can even appear magnanimous.
