Very much a matter of when as opposed to if.

It is truly only a matter of time before the US is no longer a single political entity.

I don't think it is going to happen in the next 10 years. But the next 30-50?

I used to laugh about the idea of me outliving the US as we know it. I don't laugh so much about it anymore.

I think the real challenge with our dissolution is that we don't really divide up regional lines as we do along urban/rural lines. We certainly don't divide up along state lines.

I thing the author might do some pondering on whether or not the agenda is what the author thinks it is.

I think the truth is that what the media talks about as these huge issues aren't really what the average citizen thinks about on a daily basis.

IMO your average citizen probably doesn't even THINK about abortion or gun control as they go through their daily lives. What do they think about? Jobs, income, taxes, housing, food, retirement. In other words? Economics.

To put it as came up in an election some time back: "It's the economy stupid."
