David Reaboi of Late Republic Nonsense makes his case for why Red/Blue separation is no longer and if but a when. He acknowledges all the daunting problems associated with division of the country. And he doesn’t provide answers to the problems of divvying up “territories, populations, industries or nuclear weapons caches” but he insists that as the current abysmal relations between red and blue become catastrophic these questions will be answered because they won’t be avoidable.
I don’t think Reaboi answers any of the how questions about a national breakup. What he does is state his position for why it’s inevitable. Even three years ago I would have dismissed this idea out of hand. I’m not doing that now. My best guess is it’s a coin toss.
The alternative is we get the Lefties to back off the unconstitutional crap they’ve been pushing and allow the states to drift apart on the things they disagree about and cooperate on the things we don’t disagree about. But the funny thing is that the list of things we agree on is getting shorter and shorter.
