I’ve heard some people talk about secession, and that seems to be the thing frustrated people on the right gravitate towards. We can’t threaten to move to Canada or any other country because they’re all worse than America on freedom — this is all we have — so the best we can do is carve out our own piece here. Still, I think that’s a non-starter. But what if we go with John Edward’s idea to have two Americas?
It’s a great idea. We’ll have free America and free stuff America. And everyone can choose which one they want to be a part of. In free America, no regulation and no entitlements and no taxes. In free stuff America, lots of entitlements and regulation and taxes. And we share the same military but otherwise have no influence over the other. So no more contentious elections and big arguments because people will be free to choose freedom or the other alternative if that’s too scary. And, of course, free America will grow in strength while free stuff America will crumble apart like California as it chases away all the job makers. And eventually free America will conquer free stuff America as everyone in the sissy side will dumb and squishy. And then we’ll have just free America.
We’ll leave out that last part when pitching this idea to the left.
