Don't Let the Doorknob Hit You On The Way Out

Some Democrats are threatening secession from the Union. Powerline’s got a great couple of pieces on the subject.

Several Kerry supporters in Florida have had to seek therapy. I thank LGF for once again pointing out that one. Here’s the link.

So what is to be made of all of this? The liberals think we who went red this year are not even fit to be in the same country with them. Simply put, liberals think they are better than the rest of us. They think they are smarter, more tolerant, and more in touch with how the rest of the world thinks. They think the values that we in the red hold dear are stifling, and they do not even want to debate the issues anymore. Instead, they want to take their toys and go play somewhere else.

Bottom line: they hate us.

Remember my premise last week? Both sides cannot get along anymore. We are too diametrically opposed on the major issues. That may have sounded a bit harsh, but tell me that you the reader have not thought about how nice it would be to have a liberal-free country?

My problem was that I did not know where else I would go. No other country has gun rights. No other country has a Constitution and First Amendment anywhere close to the same as the good old US of A. Nobody else even has decent plumbing, for heaven’s sake.

Lo and behold, the liberals have presented the solution. THEY want to leave.

Fine. I’ll help them pack. I have two conditions: make sure they take San Francisco with them when they go, and don’t let them ever come back. I promise we will not wage a war to go get them. We’ll be ok without them. There will be no War of Southern Aggression.

Let’s see how long a society comprised of people who believe in income redistribution and entitlement lasts. Let’s see how long a society which encourages gay marriage makes it. How will a country whose primary industry is Michael Moore films make enough bread to survive? How will a society that thinks there are no hard and fast rules actually make it? Our laws are based on Judeo-Christian ethics, for the most part. Chunk morality out the window and see what kind of laws they end up with. Let us not forget that a society needs to replenish itself. You can’t make any new society members if you drown them in saline every time they are conceived.

It would truly be a great thing, on the one hand.

On the other hand, we might all suffer as a result. We need the exchange of all sorts of political thought to make a great society. It gives us something to feel smug and superior about. The debate makes us stronger. I don’t think the other side should win, necessarily, but we do need to listen to them now and again. It’s no fun if we just agree all the time. You can’t enjoy being right if you have nobody who is wrong to laugh at.

However, don’t let my worries and concerns hold up the liberals who want to secede. I’ll find somebody else to debate. I can’t wait to have heated discussions over the relative superiority of the .45 over the 9mm.
