“The truth is that there is no compromise possible between Liberty and Tyranny. We have irreconcilable differences with the Progressives, and every attempt to compromise with them, always results in an incremental loss of our Liberty, not to mention our income. Perhaps it is time for a divorce.”—Dave Hunter “Why Live in a Salad Bowl”
A little over two years ago I wrote an article in which I discussed the idea of letting the liberal elements in America go their way, and conservatives go theirs. At the time I felt that it was not a good idea, and that maintaining the union was the best way to go, all things considered. Link
Recently Dave Hunter sent me an article that he wrote on the topic, and after considering his proposals, I found myself thinking “You know, this may be the way to go after all—sort of a Red-state/Blue-state separation—an amicable separation, instead of a civil war.”
It is no news that the United States of America is a parody of the free republic that it was designed to be. Our Godless, rudderless Ship of State has morphed into a ship of fools, mismanaged by a glib crew of brigands and cut-throats—barbarians in three-piece suits. American culture is a moral wasteland that has exchanged restraint and virtue for gluttony and greed.
The infiltration, infestation, and indoctrination of America’s culture by elements inimical to decency, truth, and honor, has been going on for so long that a sizable percentage of the American public is, in effect, treasonous. I do not consider them to be my fellow countrymen, or women. I find listening to them a “fingers across a chalkboard” experience, and would just as soon live on a different planet, let alone in a different country. Compare the typical OWS mob to the people found at your average Tea Party rally, and you will have an idea of the sort of ideological divide that I am talking about. Link Link
I cannot begin to tell you how sick I am of the duplicity, phoniness, greed, and incessant whining of the liberal element in America. I am more and more tempted every day to simply say “Fine—you can have your country to run, and we’ll have ours.”
As a model of what such a liberal utopia would look like, what better place to pick than someplace where the liberals have held the reins of power for decades, where the unions are king; where multiculturalism is the law of the land. America has such a place—Detroit, Michigan. I suggest that you check into the housing market in Detroit; check out the crime rate, drug use, corruption, graft, and all around general destruction of this once fine city. Link Link Link Link
What the liberals have done to Detroit they do most everywhere that they go. The only reason that each and every liberal enclave has not imploded under the weight of liberal stupidity, greed, and cupidity is the constant influx of revenue from the more conservative and responsible (and yes, honest) citizens in America. These responsible citizens are not deemed forthright and upstanding by the liberals; they are considered reactionary chumps and suckers—rubes to be alternately stroked, flattered, used, and discarded as the situation warrants.
As I have mentioned before in my articles, either God exists, or God does not exist. There is no half-way—God does not sort of exist,” or sort of not exist. This being the case, someone is very, very far off track, and deluded to the point of mental derangement. I should mention that the vast majority of atheists are liberal.
Seeing as how atheists are the ones who overwhelmingly tend to embrace such concepts and “realities” as relativism, chaos, nihilism, narcissism, polymorphous perversity, and moral ambiguity, there will be no awards given for correctly guessing who the deranged ones are here. I do not honestly know if I have the stomach for any further “up close and personal” dealings with lunatic liberals anymore (there is no lunatic “fringe”—all liberals are insane to one degree or another. At best they are myopically deluded and spiritually stunted). Perhaps, as Dave Hunter says, a “divorce” would be best.
The patriots in the Revolutionary War at least had an ocean separating them from the main force of their enemy. “We the people” have no such luxury—our enemies are firmly entrenched among us, and they will not miraculously become freed from their anti-American globalism and other liberal notions as the result of a conservative win in 2012, should we be blessed with such a result.
The times call for bold and innovative reforms—thinking outside of the box. The threats and troubles facing “we the people” are so dangerous, so numerous, and so multi-directional that radical conceptualizing must be the order of the day.
Some folks may say, wouldn’t it be less stressful to work within the system to change America? Not necessarily. In addition to a mass media, educational, and legal system that will need a massive attitude adjustment, there are any number of dug-in government bureaucrats, union leaders, and inside players who will fight tooth and nail to protect their various “kingdoms,” and meal tickets. There are ideological zealots and indoctrinated crazies who will throw all manner of wrenches into the works, and an army of “legal eagles” who will practice unceasing lawfare against any changes being made to the status quo.
James Francis Byrnes (1882-1972) knew a thing or two about power—he served as both a Representative, and as a Senator in the US Congress, and was also an Associate Supreme Court Justice, the Secretary of State, and Governor of South Carolina. As one who knew the lure and attraction of temporal power well, his words regarding the subject carry substantial gravitas: “Power intoxicates men. It is never voluntarily surrendered. It must be taken from them.” (Italics added) Link
All things considered, it might be more practical, and less cataclysmic, to separate America into liberal and conservative regions, than to attempt to fix a perhaps irreparably broken system. Of course conservatives, who comprise a substantial majority of the population, would receive the vast bulk of the land in such an arrangement. The details and particulars of the separation (referendums, etc.) can be worked out as the process moves along—but if such an undertaking is to be implemented, it should be undertaken soon. Time is not on our side.
Separating from a tyrannical US government is in truth no more radical than what the colonial revolutionaries did when they separated from the British government. Remember, they too had an enemy firmly entrenched in their country—Tories and British soldiers. They, also, had a populace that contained a sizable element that was clueless and/or apathetic to what was going on around them. I am not talking about covering totally new ground here. This sort of thing has happened before—right here in the good ol’ US of A.
Of course there would be a plethora of problems surrounding a venture as drastic as cutting loose from Washington DC—but think of the benefits! We could tell the liberals “Here—here is your own area—call it a state, a country, a utopia—call it what you will. You can pay OPEC as much as you want for their oil. Oh that’s right, you hate fossil fuels. Your Muslim buddies won’t like that, I suspect.”
“Heck, who cares, the thing is you can let in as many illegal foreigners as you want; invite all of Mexico to come if you like—Chinese, Muslims, whoever. The more the merrier, I say. You can go back to nature and bang on drums to your heart’s content. You can f—k your dog and marry a goat—it will be bliss. You really should go—go now. Oh, and you can leave any guns you might have with us—you will not have a need for such things any more, of course. Ta ta.”
“We the people” on the other hand will set up a free republic under God that will promote personal freedom and free enterprise—capitalism will be respected and encouraged. Energy independence will be a given, with new forms of energy welcomed as they become practical. The environment will be conserved in a responsible manner, but humanity, not animals, will be the stewards of nature. Rules of law will be cut back, but the laws that remain will be honored—the Decalogue, or Ten Commandments, will hold pride of place.
We have the blueprints for such an undertaking—the Declaration of Independence, US Constitution, and Bill of Rights—as I said before, this isn’t exactly untrodden ground. The Founding Framers did it before us, and with God’s grace we can do it again.
One thing that any new republic will have a special need for, however, is a well defended border. In short order, people from the new liberal utopias will be clamoring at the gates for entrance—sure as the sun rises in the morning.
After mulling over the idea of separating America into conservative and liberal areas, what do I think? To be honest, I don’t know. Although I would not (yet) call myself a proponent of dividing up and remaking the United States, I no longer dismiss the notion out of hand. I’m thinking about it—seriously.

I think it needs to be done, but how do we split it up. Can it be done without going to war. If we do go to war, where will the military be.
the military and local law enforcement have been training for sometime for urban fighting, do you really think this is for the middle east? or right here at home? our local police department looks and act like swat and special forces, I'm afraid to say our military is on the governments side, so keep stocking up.
We can not split up.. Then we would be like the others in the middle east as the MB take them over... We must stand up and them go back to their own countrys or they will have to die...
I'm with Pat. I say fight them here and win. All it takes is for patriots to be willing to stand up and put their actions where their mouths are. The TEA Party makes up 67% of We the People. We only have 2 major problems, the demoncrat party and the republicrat party. We defeat them we are done.
You are correct to give them a little, is to give them a lot!
It is and must be all or nothing in dealing with these two faced jackels.
This is a fight to the death, they will not allow us to live, neither should we allow them to live!
Execution or Deportation IF we want to be generous.
Our Constitution was made only for moral and religious people of the Judeo-Christian faith, living on an isolated continent.
It is wholly inadequate to the government and people of any other faith.
It is wholly inadequate under conditions of wide openness to hostile ideologies and people carrying them.
Those who realize that it is the time to stand up are a minority thinly spread over the nation. At that the sectors such as the school and university systems, the media, and even the army brass are already a 100% enemy territory. No small part of them is good even if forced to split with the patriots.
It is a matter of establishment of a new smaller union rather than of separation and splitting.
Practically, it may be possible by massive settlement of the conservatives and patriots in one state, and beginning almost from scratch...
Ya'll miss the big picture...! The point is that they want ALL of the world to be like Europe. A One World Governance. If we split up the country, they would start all over again to undermine the conservative section. THEY WANT IT ALL....JUST LIKE THE ISLAMISTS. They only way to win this is to kill the liberal, socialist, communist, islamist idealogy DEAD, DEAD, DEAD...! Ooooo..! Rahhhh...! Semper Fi...!
Bonnie, don't confuse the issue. Wimpy is not the word to describe republicrats. I don't see them as cowards, though I used to. Now I see them as complicit in the conspiracy to foment the demise of We the People. They will "go along to get along" because Hugo Chavez will give them a seat in the back of the bus and they are happy with that because they will be on the bus and live the good life while you and I live in FEMA camps and work the fields with pitchforks. Well some will, I most likely will be dead.
Whimpy yes, but very strategic, they have put all of the citizens at each others throats and they are keeping so many problems in front of us that we are not noticing what they are truly doing to our nation. THEY ARE TAKING CONTROL. AND MOST OF US ARE TOO WORRIED ABOUT WHAT WE CAN DO TO JUST SURVIVE. Obama and all the other politicians are our enemies, and we put them in their government positions. Why, because we believed whatever they told us. They lead us down the golden road to ruins. Now we have an election coming in NOVEMBER. Whatever they say is a lie, we must remember that. They do what they want. They make their lives rich financially and take from the taxpayers who they think will do what ever they put in writing. IT'S OUR TIME TO STOP THIS CORRUPTION IN OUR GOVERNMENT. DO NOT BELIEVE WHATEVER THEY SAY. THEY TELL US LIES WE WANT TO BELIEVE. THE ONLY WAY TO CONTROL THEM IS MAKE A CONTRACT LIKE MOST OF US HAVE WITH OUR EMPLOYERS THAT IS BINDING, WITH NO LOOP-HOLES, AND CAN ELIMINATE THEM FROM OFFICE WITHOUT GOING TO COURT. ALSO MAKING SURE THESE POLITICIANS GET NO BENEFITS THAT WE DO NOT HAVE. Like medical care, they have the best while we have the worst. No retirement their political jobs are part time, not full time they have another job on the side which pays them retirement benefits. No double dipping with in anyway. Get rid of the LOBBIEST, they sway the Politicians with a variety of ways to get them to pass the bills that are beneficial to that particular business. THESE POLITICIANS ARE SUPPOSE TO BE WORKING FOR THE U.S. CITIZEN, NOT ILLEGAL ALIENS, GREEDY BUSINESSES LIKE DOW CHEMICAL, MONSANTO, THE PHARMACEUDICALS, ETC.
They tell us the government is going broke, sure they use the taxpayers money not for what is needed and most important bills, but squander our money on imports of products that are made poorly, pay for illegal aliens,hiring unnecessary federal employees, paying for welfare recipients that live in low income housing while selling drugs to our children and the politicians. And let's not forget all the foreign aid and the troops that are in foreign countries that we are in their civil wars...THAT COST ALONE COULD PAY FOR ALL THE PROGRAMS OUR GOVERNMENT WANTS TO STOP.
IT IS TIME FOR US TO GIVE THOSE POLITICIANS THE HEAVE HO. TO THEM IT'S ALL ABOUT PARTIES WHICH THEY USE AGAINST US. VOTE ALL OF THE INCUMBANTS OUT, INCLUDING OBAMA. OBAMA HAS COST US TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS JUST IN THE WARS AND OUR MONEY TO FOREIGN COUNTRIES WHEN WE NEED THAT MONEY HERE TO PUT OUR CITIZENS TO WORK, TO KEEP OUR HOMES AND JUST SURVIVE.
Geraldine.......it all boils down to electing men and women that will use common sense, commit to the US Constitution, and become servants to "we the people".
I wholeheartedly agree with your short but very accurate assessment. however - finding those people with common sense seems to be difficult - some appear that way, then they get to DC and almost without exception - they join the 'good ole boy club'.
