ZeroHedge posted this article. I’ll refer to it below.

I’m a blogger, and you might characterize me as an illegally parked car in the cul de sac of life because there is definitely more sand out of the hourglass than that which remains. My “productive years” could be said to be behind me. It’s true that I’m working on a Small Modular (Nuclear) Reactor (SMR) project in Mexico involving the New Rolls Royce SMR’s and a few other things that may or may not blossom. But those things ahead are nothing compared to those things behind. Many of this blog’s readers would seem to be in roughly the same boat.

Quoting Zerohedge (above), “The idea that the nation’s political divide has become so toxic that we should prepare from some sort of “national divorce” has largely been left to clever thought experiments best left for dinner parties and ironically detached columns. However, we’ve now arrived at a point where more than half of Trump voters “somewhat agree” that the time for secession is nigh.”

There is a tendency for a lot of us (including me) to throw up our hands and say that the people who think that men can have babies, are confused as to which bathroom to use, and want to wear man-buns and eat kale as a staple should separate, while we laugh from afar as things fall apart.

As tempting as it is, that’s not the solution.  Look at the curs who are elected to office. Look at the voting fraud that makes it all possible. America can only be a great nation to the extent that it can be a good nation. Right behavior leads to right results. We have allowed our universities to become cesspools of rot and corruption (where do you send your children?) and acquiescence to the filthy communists has led us to the point where we are today with strident efforts to divide us based on race, faith, national origin, economic envy, etc.

E Pluribus Unum

Out of Many, One

We may flee to states that still uphold the Constitution and the rule of law (I did) rather than shovel the ocean against the rising tide. It would be very hypocritical for me to suggest that you stand against an FBI or IRS that was weaponized by your government against you or to march in a situation where you would be imprisoned as a political prisoner, held without bail or due process, and so forth as we have seen, and see today.

But I implore you not to allow the nation to be divided as the left would have us be. Uniting the nation requires that while there is always some contention, that we not devolve into conflict needlessly.

Find ways to make us a good people if you’re able, support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies both foreign and domestic and bear true faith and allegiance to the same. That is my suggestion and request.

  1. One person speaking out, “That’s not right”, may encourage the next person. I’ll keep speaking out and no government will silence me.

  2. That’s why I have a blog, WSF. Just one voice added to others.

      Your blog has as many views in a month as mine does in a year. I don’t begrudge you your audience, your writing and breadth of subjects is astounding. My blog, in a small way, strives to achieve the same results.
      I’m more active on Falsebook putting up inflammatory posts under the title, “Stirring the pot”. Many draw the attention of “Fact Checkers” which gives me a certain pleasure. Many of your memes, among others, are material.

      My principal goal is, “That’s not right, please think and draw your own conclusions”.

  3. Few read my blog, but I read this one and others. I try and pass on what I’ve observed and learned. Few seem to care, other than those I associate with.

    On the Good News front, my son tells me all the young guys he works with at his new job, and all the old guys and the office staff, seem to be quite conservative.

    And Epstein didn’t kill himself…..

    • I read your blog.

      As to younger people becoming conservative, well, the old adage of how to make a liberal turn conservative? Rape them. One way or another. Physically, financially, morally, intellectually.

      Sad but true. Many of the up and coming are seeing what is happening and are going “This is wrong.” The same up and coming that are also having children, entering the trades or the military and so forth.

      • At big events, from Congressional baseball games to college football and NASCAR, the crowds are all shouting “fuck Biden”. It’s said that there is no such thing as bad publicity, but the collective consciousness may actually awaken (rather than a-woke-en).

  4. I think the more important version of that poll is at the source, the Center for Politics at UVA.
    https://centerforpolitics.org/crystalball/articles/new-initiative-explores-deep-persistent-divides-between-biden-and-trump-voters/

    It’s showing the disgust with the situation in the country extends to both Biden voters and Trump voters (the only categories they list). For example they take the statement “I have come to view elected officials from the [OPPOSITION PARTY] party as presenting a clear and present danger to American democracy”

    The answers are presented as “somewhat agree / strongly agree”
    Biden voters are 80% / 51% while Trump voters are 84% / 57%. Without even knowing their declared margin of error, they sound like they both could be the same numbers. (82 +/- 2, 54 +/-3) . Something around 3% error is pretty common in polls.

    Out of a listing of nine questions, the answers are more similar across Biden vs Trump voters than very different, but it’s 5:4 (no number crunching done, just eyeballing them). That one response that Zerohedge quotes, about, “more than half of Trump voters “somewhat agree” that the time for secession is nigh.”” is a 41% / 18% among Biden voters and 52% /25% on Trump’s.

    There are more areas where both parties are pretty similar in outlook than than that.

      Which of Newton’s Axioms states ‘an object at rest tends to stay at rest’…

      • Move prior to needing to become a refugee

        If you can afford to.

        That’s the best way, but there are many good people stuck where they are due to family/economic reasons.

  5. Secession is no solution. First, it’s my country; damned if I’m going to let a bunch of grifters, rent seekers, narcissists, and professional victims run me off. Second, it wouldn’t work anyway. Does any thinking person believe that the psychopaths and their useful idiots won’t immediately demand to be let into whatever polity you form from the remnants of Free America? Once let in, they’ll set about “repairing” Free America just as they repaired Russia, and the Ukraine, and Poland, you get the idea.

  6. See, and here I was planning to back off on commenting and between your Sermonette and this one every good voice must speak loudly, a I shall.

    Your 32oz framing hammer hit the proverbial nail on the head today…then again, when do you not?

  7. Yeah, dividing the country wouldn’t work.

    It wouldn’t even work if it resulted in 2 contiguous nations, which it wouldn’t.

    -Kle.

  8. i respectfully disagree. you can’t unite with people diametrically opposed to your existence. many nations have split in the past, some successful some not. i say we take the chance, do it peacefully while we still can. the alternative is violence, which even i don’t want, yet…. we have to get over the normalcy bias. there will be no return to “normal”, not ever. its done, get over it. move on and face that we may have to do some terrible things to survive it.

    • But how would it work? At the most basic level there is no reasonable physical partition. The red county/blue county map of the 2020 election shows the magnitude of the problem. Take New York state for example, apart from large cities, most of NY is red (except for Tompkins County, because of Ithaca/Cornell University). Do you force the majority of the land mass under the rule of NYFC? Cut NYFC loose and have it in a union with LA county, WDC, Boston, etc? How could this possibly work?

      More to the point, the rent seekers, parasites, and genuine well-meaning fools will never leave you alone. They’ll move in before the ink is dry on the Constitution of the new nation. The only thing to do is to take back the culture, or at least go down swinging. I don’t know if I am hopeful or not, to be honest. I do see some signs of hope in the younger generations.

    • There is no “peacefully”. The last time, we killed something like 3% of the population.

      Even if it could be done peacefully, it just delays the war between the two new countries.

      America’s dead, something will replace it. It won;t be better.

      -Kle.

  9. Unity is the framework, underneath are where differing factions exist, not the other way around. Same with Christianity, basic biblical tenets are non-negotiable whereas secondary items can be discussed and argued as needed…but still one body (generally speaking).

    A divided America is what the Founders did not want, doing so would make America cease to exist, which is what the current swamp dwellers want and are getting by instilling fear and peddling misinformation. We can not let them win.

  10. What the hay?

    Lt. Co. Sheller:

    “President Trump. I was told by everyone to kiss the ring because of your following and power. I refuse. While I respect your foreign policy positions, I hate how you divided the country. I don’t need or want your help. You do not have the ability to pull US together. You may even win the next election. But your generation’s time is running out. Tell your son to stop tweeting about me. Your whole family knows nothing about US or our sacrifices. I could never work with you. I’d rather sit in jail and be released with a dishonorable than make compromises in my beliefs.”

    He later clarified this statement, walking back some of the more incendiary comments. I trust nothing anymore…but if he did say this then he needs to sit with his thoughts for a while longer as he just lost his most prominent proponent for his release. Bizarre.
