WAR BETWEEN THE STATES
Let me begin by saying that this will not go over well with most people but it’s not like I’m going to stop writing this article. Be forewarned and leave the premises now if you don’t want to get your blood pressure up.
Canada and Mexico are governed by Socialism in principle and in fact. We share huge natural borders with them and there has never been a declared war with either. We, the United States (USA) have something in common with the former United Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR). We are – as they were – a union of individual states that came together as a united republic. Canada and Mexico have much more in common with the old USSR than we do in the Socialistic governing, but yet we bear no ill will or chastise and berate them for it as we did, and do still to the original land of Mother Russia. What does this mean? Well, to begin with we have demonized the word socialism as evil and Un-American, yet we collect Social Security, receive social Medicare, have social services, and churches practice socialism every time they feed or clothe the homeless. Now we practice business socialism in buying toxic mortgage-backed bonds from banks. I’m pretty much sick of people screaming about free markets and unfettered capitalism as the cure for all ill, as it pretty much brought us to the bankruptcy of today.
Now, I’m not going to go where you think I am with this article. The ideology of right and left has so polarized this nation that we are at a point where less than 8 to 10 percent of the citizens decide who is President, and there never is a clear mandate. There will never be a rectification of these extreme views and I am sick to death of hearing the Fox News vs CNN; O’Reilly vs CBS; right vs left; good vs evil; McCain vs Obama; black vs white; Pro-Life vs Pro-Choice. You name it, I’m sick of hearing about this divisiveness and vociferous vocalizing from friends, family, and media. Here’s what I propose we eventually do.
We do what the USSR did but in a more palatable way. Let’s divide the states by 2 or some equitable arrangement and those who would want liberal government and would move to those states to achieve their ends and those who would want a right-wing government have the same option. Let’s go back to some sort of Pre-Civil war borders (A Mason-Dixon line of politics) but include the newer states to even the two republics and create a sandwich of sanity and reality between two Socialist countries, Canada and Mexico. Separate Presidents, Congresses, and laws would be created along with a new capital, but we would share Military, Social Security, Medicare and other Federal services for ten years after which we can hopefully completely separate and leave each other to our collective political wants and desires.
Now the right can rant and the liberal can liberate and all of you can shut the hell up and we get on with enjoying our short lives.
Damn, I’m sorry for having to write this but enough is enough and we are no longer a United States are we? Let’s break up and find ourselves where we want to be instead of destroying ourselves from the inside out.
I’m ready for being happy and living a great life without all this crap, are you? I say let those who would be right, be right and those who would be left, be left-figuratively, literally, and locationally.
Anybody got a better idea?
