Why not just separate into two countries so 100% of people can be happy instead of a constant tug of war of which half gets to be unhappy.

We had it all wrong. He's not a frog killer, he's a killer frog.

Because it's a little more complicated than just putting a line of masking tape down the middle of the living room and telling your wife to stay on her side while you stay on yours.

I just noticed that on the main GBS page this thread shows 0 views even though you and I have both posted in it. I wonder if we're dead. Perhaps we're doomed to spend all of eternity together.

Hey, look. Look, if- if you screw me on this, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine, you rat bastard!

If we break up then we'll get a continued fracturing. No, the solution is for every state to become a nation unto itself, replace the Governor with President and enter into non-aggression and trade agreements with neighboring states. The USA executive/legislative branch as a whole then becomes more a United Nations organization for imposing sanctions and facilitating peaceful resolutions in this section of the North Am. continent.

It's also wet on the bottom.


Because the states and counties of one half are entirely economically dependent on the other half to be able to function. The economically dependent half tend to be the people who have guns and join the military.

Yeah let's just make CONSERVATIVE LAND and LIBERAL LAND!

Conservative Land: Everybody gets a gun, there's no taxes and no social programs, so it's basically a modern version of the wild west! Capitalism is king here, also you're allowed to kill anybody as long as you felt threatened by them. Everything that's not 100% heterosexual is outlawed, and the only entertainment is the XFL (gently caress the NFL for the kneeling!!!!) and Last Man Standing.

Liberal Land: Everybody is a communist, if you somehow turn a profit you get turned into a nutritional slurry for the less fortunate. Everybody is forced to have at least one gay experience, just to see if you like it. Toast costs 9 dollars and comes with avocado and you can't ask for it on the side, they just spread that poo poo on there. Nobody knows what sports are, it's all musical theater.

Here ya go I stereotyped the whole country and created appropriate lands to live in. Who gives a gently caress about trade and whatnot, or the physical division of the country.

Maybe we can split them 50/50 like a divorce that would be fair.

We can do it on Judge Judy.
