Legendary radio host Rush Limbaugh recently stated on his radio program that he believes conservative states are beginning to consider the idea of secession.
It’s sad that we’ve become so divided, politically speaking, that we can’t find common ground on shared values anymore.
“I actually think that we’re trending toward secession,” Limbaugh said. “I see more and more people asking what in the world do we have in common with the people who live in, say, New York? What is there that makes us believe that there is enough of us there to even have a chance at winning New York, especially if you’re talking about votes.”
“A lot of bloggers have written extensively about how distant and separated and how much more separated our culture is becoming politically and that it can’t go on this way. There cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life, theories of government, theories of how we manage our affairs. We can’t be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way.
“I know that there’s a sizable and growing sentiment for people who believe that that is where we’re headed whether we want to or not. Whether we want to go there or not. I, myself, haven’t made up my mind. I still haven’t given up the idea that we are the majority and that all we have to do is find a way to unite and win.”
I’m with Limbaugh.
I think there are far more center-right Americans and conservatives than their are liberals. It’s just that liberals have decided to not even pretend to play by the rules any more and are sinking to any low necessary to keep control over our culture.
There still has to be some hope for the Union as it stands. However, it’s a comfort to know that if states that are conservative feel they can no longer get along with, or support the values of, the rest of the country, they have the option to pull out of it.
