Love this new book! Let the red and blue states have their own countries!
When I saw this book, I knew I had to have it. Having read it, I had to bring it to this forum. Red or Blue? This Book is 4 U. by Bob Jackson (ISBN 9780615531229, 120 pages, $10, Amazon or Kindle) proposes that red states and blue states separate into two separate and sovereign countries. The plan includes a constitutional amendment to establish the division. The national debt is divided on a per capita basis. The armed forces are divided fairly as are all other federal assets (except foreign embassies). Each new country would print its own money which will exchange 1:1 for the old US dollar for a two year transitional period.
Think about it. The liberals could implement all of their self destructive policies and ruin their country with no further interference from conservatives. Conservatives can restore their country to its former greatness and implement additional amendments to prevent laws like Obamacare from ever coming around again. We could strengthen gun ownership rights. Texans won't have to bail out Californians. We will just be shedding dead wood!
All US citizens will have dual citizenship for five years to allow for the massive political migration. Works for me. I'll even donate bus fare to relocate some of my blue, occupy easy street, friends the hell out of here.
Hey! The romantic in me doesn't like seeing our country split up but it's headed down the toilet. The US I grew up in is almost gone. At least one part of the greatest nation on the face of the earth can survive. In 20 years the Red side could probably buy the Blue half back; although I can't think of a good reason why.
Liberals will never convince conservatives to become liberal and vice versa. So why not split it up and get on with our lives!
What was once a constitutional republic, the envy of the world, of, for, and by the people, has descended into a government by lawyers, for the highest bidder, of the uneducated mob.
