Burgold Posted November 17, 2007 Share Posted November 17, 2007 Once the country of purple's majesty, now to many we are the great blue-red divide. I hear about "them" and "other" so much more than I ever hear about "us". It's not unique to the Conservative/Republicans, though I hear it more often from them. Libs and Dems are to PC to tell peole they're not real Americans or to get out, but Libs/Dems are guilty of falling into the other/enemy mindset too. Sometimes, especially when reading threads on the Tailgate, I get the sensation that many partisans would be happier if the Union was split in half. That they truly consider themselves American and those who think differently, act differently, or believe different not true U.S. Citizens. They think of their fellows as the "Enemy." So, how do you think it would break down? What percentage of conservatives would rise to secede to form the United Conservative States? How many liberals would secede to form the United States of Liberty? Or how much of it is political gamesmanship and silliness where the perpetrators just need a good slap upside the head?
