In the comments section of the Synagis™ post, a side discussion has broken out on whether the United States should break itself into pieces.
Since such a thought coincides with the 150th anniversary of the firing on Ft. Sumter, it’s as timely an issue as any.
Correction (thanks Max): Since such a thought coincides with the 150th anniversary of South Carolina’s Ordinance of Secession, it’s as timely an issue as any.
Here’s the comment that kicked off the discussion:
(Some of you) guys never cease to amaze me and with a worldview that is so completely antithetical to my own, I find it increasingly difficult to call you fellow Americans.
The dissolution of the United States as we know it and emergence of regional, like-minded governance (South, West Coast, Northeast, Midwest, etc.) can’t come soon enough. For all of you who want to ban Happy Meals and run private health insurance out of town, I want you to have a place you can call home that’s all your own.
Let’s continue that discussion here.
