Should the United States be split up?Submitted by snakepit22 on Mon, 03/04/2013 - 22:22
There is obviously a divide in this country, in more than one way. I've been very doubtful that voting will fix our issues. I'd love for our people to be elected, but even if they are, can we fix this mess we've created? At some point, should we just admit that separating into 2, maybe 3 countries, is ultimately what is best for the United States. Forty percent of this nation is sold on socialism. Forty percent is sold on militarism. Eighteen percent is busy with American Idol. And that leaves the other 2%, searching for John Galt.
I love this country, but like a bad marriage, sometimes its just best to go your separate ways. If 100 million Americans want to be socialists, I could spare a few states for them to experiment with it. I just don't want that failure to be linked to my future.
