The disconnect between the red and blue states is something that the left has been promoting as they have sought to gain control over the nation via population growth in the coastal areas. Various means are at work in this including immigration and a shift of population from the rural areas to the urban as well. This and the continuous indoctrination via the democrat controlled media helps sway the tide.
The Urban drones are fully programmed and perform their function of voting democrat, regardless of any issue, perfectly. The drones are so well programmed they even show passion for their socialist beliefs even if they are not sure what that all means or even know what the future will be in their supposed ‘utopia’.
It is frightening that our nation has arrived at a place where many of us concerned about the future see this huge gulf that exists between the main political philosophies. I would say parties but the Rinos that occupy the republican party as just as bad as the democrats themselves. No, this gulf is between citizens and it is not politically motivated. It is one set of values set against another. This is the crisis that the democrats have sought for 100 years. Problem is that they may not like how it gets sorted out.
At present, the left will take the fight to the right citizens. Organized mobs like Antifa and the riots in DC after the inaugural prove the left is willing to fight physically for their goals. The right, on the other hand, presumes the fight is against the government which to a great extent it is but, the true believers in the left’s rank and file are more committed and more dangerous. What has changed lately is that the right is beginning to see the light as far as what they are truly up against.
While novels about a 2 nation solution to this problem provide entertainment and levity perhaps in the face of true danger, we cannot forget the gruesome reality the left would impose on the entire nation and in a heartbeat if they could. They would rule against the will of the red states and do it gleefully. Such is their desire for this absolute control that we see the continuing attack upon Donald Trump and his administration due to the democrats losing the 2016 presidential election. This symbolizes more than anything else how the left will go all in after their goal of domination.
As a red state person behind enemy lines in upstate New York I am reminded of this fact daily as we live with the edicts of Emperor Cuomo II (Andy, (my girlfriend owns our house.) Son of Mario the Pious) . We are subjects to be governed and not voting citizens to this current monarchy that exists in Albany in the great castle of government. Witness the recent budget agreed upon by the democrats. There are hundreds of tax increases and new restrictions that are included. None of this is approved by a large portion of the state’s population. New York is what the democrats want to do to the rest of the nation.
I am not alone as a red stater here in enemy territory. Practically all of the people in my town, county and the surrounding counties are all basically red stater’s too. There are pockets of democrat intolerant drones upstate, say in Hamilton where Colgate is as well as Ithaca and Cornell as well as the large cities that occupy the valley from Albany to Buffalo. For the most part however, the region is solidly red state. A divided NY has been floated as a way to resolve the lack of representation the red state people have in Albany. This is a fantasy. The democrats will not give up anything in the process of re-inventing America including NYS.
While the notion of a separate ‘nation’ for the red state people and one for the blue, the reality is that interspersed within both ‘zones’ are plenty of people who are not like those typically associated in their respective areas. People as these including myself are in a quandary as to how to survive and not abandon either tradition and home and family and move to the area associated with my beliefs (red states) or to adopt the enemy’s mantra whichever one you are confronted with.
Wars have been fought for less differences than we are seeing in today’s society. In many ways, the system of governance devised by the founders was far ahead of its day in the ability of government to accommodate many widely diverging views. This is being taxed (good choice of words actually) to the limit by the polar opposites that the sides represent.
It is my hope that things will not come down to such drastic measures to keep the peace. We live in perilous times and the choices made by the voters and the elected officials carry serious consequences. I dearly pray that both sides learn to abide with the other in peace. If we cannot live in peace together, I hope we can live in peace apart.
