RED STATE/BLUE STATE DIVIDE

Navigating the Great Divide

By Stephen Moore    January 8, 2019
 In the months after the election of Donald Trump, there was a mini-political movement in California to get the Golden State to secede from the Union.It didn’t get off the ground, though during a recent trip to Northern California, many of the people I met were still so distraught over the Trump presidency that were he to win re-election, secession would be much more seriously pursued. A majority of Californians don’t want to be governed by Donald Trump, and many liberal leaders and talking heads openly compare him to Adolf Hitler.

What if we arrived at a point where a solid majority of Californians wanted independence (and perhaps states like Washington and Oregon sought to join them)? Should they have the moral and constitutional right to do so? Would the other states ever impose military control over Californians to keep them in the Union?

The standard response is this issue was settled during the Civil War. Really? What the Civil War proved was that the North had more military might than the South. Imagine that it were the South in 1860 that held the political and military advantage to impose its will over the North, and moved to legalize the evil of slavery everywhere. Would the North have been morally wrong to secede?

The issue of secession takes on renewed vigor now given the British exit from the European Union. The EU allowed a fairly orderly process for allowing nations to leave the EU governing structure. The political tide in many places around the world appears to be for self-rule and sovereignty.

In America, the deepening and perhaps irreversible red state-blue state schism deserves immediate attention. We as a nation are more divided on ideological, cultural, economic and geographical lines than at any time since the Civil War. Look at the electoral map from recent elections.

Wow !   Thanks to Elizabeth Fisher for sharing this amazing video that was on twitter.   A proud conservative black man dressed in the Confederate uniform with a Confederate flag at the Silent Sam leftist protest at UNC in Chapel Hill.  He knows his history of the South and the Civil War and defends the Confederate statues.   Click on Patrick Howley’s name to view.    If you click on the link, twitter will tell you the video does not exist !   Please share with  your email  lists.  This man’s words need to be heard !      Nancy   

Nancy,
Have you seen this?  I came across it on Twitter, and I’m sending a link.  I don’t know if the link will work (it did for me when I sent it to myself), but I was absolutely blown away by this!
