I’m all for a separate new country, “New American Testament” in the spirit of the founding.
Writing in The Federalist, Jesse Kelly in April this year likened America to a couple that can’t stop fighting and should get a divorce. Literally. His proposal was to split the country into two new ones: a ‘red’ state and a ‘blue’ state.
On a map accompanying the article, he proposed a division of the U.S. into the People’s Republic of Soyland and the Federalist States of America (no prizes for guessing Mr Kelly’s politics).
It’s a fairly crude map. For example, it includes Republican-leaning states such as Montana and the Dakotas in the ‘blue’ state for seemingly no other reason than to provide a corridor between the blue zones in the west and east of the country.
Mr Kelly admitted that his demarcational talents left some room for improvement: “We can and will draw the map and argue over it a million different ways for a million different reasons but draw it we must,” he wrote. “I suspect the final draft would look similar (to mine).” ……. more
Quarter of Americans believe it’s time for U.S. to split into separate red, blue countries

A sizable percentage of U.S. voters support a proposal to split the country into two separate countries — amid bitter political divides, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.
Twenty-five percent of respondents back “splitting the red states and blue states into separate countries.”
A very solid majority, 62%, oppose such a measure.
Political divisions in the U.S. have become even more bitter and divided in the wake of the 2020 election, won by Democrat Joe Biden in a close contest and amid concerns about voting irregularities in the U.S.’s election process.
