And that is exactly as I have long predicted. It’s not a civil war that will happen (at least right now), it is a great sorting. And that already is happening.
And it is a pretty organic sorting. When people can no longer tolerate each other, they separate. But if Democrats keep insisting on a strong and coercive Federal government, they will “seal” the pressure cooker and hasten a civil war.
And THIS sorting is an overwhelmingly strong argument for Federalism–very strong state and local governance coupled with a very weak central government that is almost 100% focused on defense, foreign affairs, fair and equal rule of law, and interstate trade.
You know, like the framers intended…
No wonder the Democrats did all in their power to kill the “Tea Party!” It VERY directly threatened them.
