Almost One in Four Americans Support Idea of Splitting From the Union
After Scotland, all eyes are turning to Catalonia, where voters will hold a non-binding vote on independence from Spain on Nov. 9. But maybe Americans need to focus closer to home. We already knew—courtesy of Slate’s David Weigel—that breakaway movements in the United States were feeling inspired by the Scotland…
Looks like we could be coming to the end of another union.
I’d be ok with it, honestly.
Conservatives take one territory, progressives take the other.

We’re about empathy, honesty, openness, tolerance, acceptance, and facts.
Let us compete with greed, deception, lies, xenophobia, racism, classism, sexism, and all other non-American and anti-social traits.
If we lose, then it proves that this universe is not a good one to be in anyway, because there’s then a serious defect in how rewards and punishments are dealt out. Nature is indifferent to morals, and justice is blind. Let’s find out if karma exists in states beyond simple “action”. Is the universe indeed a moral and ethical place? If not, than it’s really not worth saving, and we’d all likely be better off abandoning this existence to its inevitable doom and death.
That, or we can stay together as one country, let everyone ditch the conservative brain-state, and we can continue on from there with evidence, facts, and an ethically grounded and social society.
I’m willing to cede the whole baby to the conservatives. Take the universe, take the country, take the world. I don’t think it’ll do them any good in the long term or short term. That decision, though, is out of my hands.
It’s in yours’ America.
