QUESTION: Do you believe our country is irreparably divided between two competing and non-overlapping ideologies?

    QUESTION: Do you believe our country is irreparably divided between two competing and non-overlapping ideologies? Do you believe that to try to negotiate and make concessions will only further erode the precarious existence that already threatens the integrity of our once-great republic?

    Do you think we are heading for something serious, such as a revolution, secession, or even a state-sponsored Article V Convention to amend our government (whether for good or bad, but chances are that it will make concessions to government)?

    Do you think we, as a country, are ready to engage in serious thoughts and discussions about the states' "rightful remedy" of Nullification in order to check the over-reach and abuse of the federal government? Or do you think the States lack the backbone to push back? Do you think we, as a country, are ready to have a serious discussion about secession and the right of each State to do so (articulated in the Declaration of Independence) in order to shed itself of a government that has "become destructive" of its rightful and legitimate ends?

    We all know that the second paragraph of the Declaration instructs: "... whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government...."

    The fact is that state districts are actually trying to do just that now - to secede from their existing states. They want to escape the liberal history and politics of their state by petitioning to join a conservative neighboring state.

    Another attempt to "secede" in a sense is by mass migration of people from liberal states to conservative ones. That's why California has so greatly lost a huge number of citizens (and lost seats in Congress) and the same with New York and Illinois and maybe New Jersey too.

    If we can't live together trustingly and with enough common values to hold us together, than I personally think it's best to split up so both sides can live in their version of peace and prosperity (and of course, size of government and intrusion in their lives. If the States refuse to nullify abusive acts of the federal government and if we take secession off the table, then we are likely headed for revolution or another civil war. And then, very possible, we face losing the greatest gift our founding generation and Founding Fathers gave us (and the world), which was a near-perfect constitutional republic. But that's just my opinion.
