Divide the Child: A Peaceful Solution to America's Internal Conflicts
The United States of America are not united. They are clearly divided by the two party systems which bear witness to this fact. The Parties differ in standard ideology; Foreign affairs, economic policies, social and religious issues, and have reached a point of defining their own understanding of the Constitution and of the Bill of Rights. These political conflicts do not solidify Unity, but a clear-cut division. Thus, how can a nation clearly divided coexist peacefully? It cannot and will soon implode, but there is one sure way to avoid another Civil War and that is to divide the nation into two separate nations. Literally, give the Republicans 25 states and give the Democrats 25 states.
Dividing the nation will do away with partisan politics, constant bickering, and culture wars, ease race relations and open the doors to a new-age, mega industrial revolution for private business and/or government expansion. Like a bad marriage, if the differences are simply too great, sometimes divorce is the only answer. The people of the United States are the children caught in an ugly marriage. They have withdrawn from the dinner table and closed themselves off into their rooms casting off any faith in, respect for or involvement with the two debating parties. Thus voter turnout is very low, anger at the government is at an all-time high, and things only seem to be getting worse.
The division has psychological effects on every person in many ways. Not knowing what to believe, what to stand for or even what is true anymore has run deep in the way people live their lives on a daily basis. Is there a God or not? Is the earth warming or not? Religion and science are questionable and in complete contradiction of each other all the way to the Supreme Court. Civil Rights and even human rights are in question when debated in the halls of Congress and the national news industry base their entire existence on presenting two opposing viewpoints so the viewer can make up their own mind. The lack of a solid foundation for any nation leaves the people at risk.
The Conservative Republic
When the Republicans are in control of their own nation, they can limit government power to as little as possible. They can have a system of unbridled capitalism without restriction and let the free market run wild. They can ban abortion and gay marriage, restrict voting to whoever they want, carry all the guns they want and build a wall as tall as they want to keep others out. There will be no need for entitlement programs including social security, Medicare, Medicaid, or food stamps because no one would ever need assistance. The Conservative Republic government can build a military force unstoppable to the world and defend their side of the country against terrorist attacks and also bomb any other country all to hell if they want.
The Democratic Union
When the Democrats are in control of their own nation, they can do the opposite of all of the above. They can expand government as far as the eye can see, allow abortion, gay marriage, invite refugees and immigrants, have no guns, give free health care, college and food all day long if they so desire. And when it comes time to negotiate with foreign leaders, they can finally make peace with the world. Instead of the rich controlling the rest of the country, hard working people can earn their due and live without the frustration and anxiety of living paycheck to paycheck.
Let the young minds of Ivy league schools (who could use real mental stimulation) work out the details of how to move the people to their desired nation, design a workable infrastructure, and rebuild Wall Street to work for both sides. Allow the people to have another chance at freedom instead of being subjugated to Government security agencies that survey every aspect of our lives. Let this new found independence of each nation reveal which one will have need of the prison industrial complex, a superior defense system, or which side will have to worry about school and mass shootings, suicides, gang violence and drug abuse.
Divide or Else
If this country does not divide into two nations soon there looms another Civil War and it will not be pretty at all. Racism, anger and hatred are on the rise not only among the people, but all those things are being spew from the mouths of political, business, intellectual and even religious leaders. Those persecuted can only take so much abuse before one soul will rise and tap into the frustration of those being abused and once that happens, this United States military will have their hands full.
The world is watching and will soon see the destruction of a country unable to solve their internal struggles among themselves. Right now it is only garnering attention, but when the war breaks out, the world will not stand by and watch millions of people harmed by a country juiced with such social hatred.
For God's sake and the sake of millions of innocent people, Divide the Child!
