A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
There is a strong undercurrent of anger just beneath the surface of American society these days. It is a "teeth-grinding" anger. It is hot and wrathful while, at the same time, cold and calculating. In short -- it is in a state of "becoming". Becoming what? It is becoming, I am very afraid, a spirit of revolution.
The population is very nearly equally divided on practically everything. We are constantly at each other's throats. We are fast becoming a bitter, unhappy, people. The famous American optimism is gone.
Socialism is a terminal disease to any country unfortunate enough to contract it. The FDR Administration first exposed America to the disease of socialism. With The Obama Regime America has advanced to stage four, or terminal, condition. In short: America is dying.
1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
2 a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property . b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.
Now that America's government has chosen socialism it has separated itself from "The People." It is no longer representative of the wants and desires and, yes, even the needs of those it governs. Many Americans are aware of this widening gulf, which has developed in the past two years, or so, between the American people and their government. It is a gulf they feel cannot be bridged -- ever -- again.
The near collapse of the American economy did not "just happen." I am convinced our near economic collapse was planned and the near crash was executed according to that plan. America had to be broken to prepare the way for the socialism the Obama Regime was bringing into the American government. It worked -- and, as a result, America is infected and rotting at her core and death is imminent.
Americans, mostly of the conservative persuasion, have begun to coalesce around an idea that one of two things must happen. America must be healed by a complete take-over of the dying government by conservatives in 2010 and 2012, or, Americans must agree to split the states into two separate countries -- one conservative and the other socialist. To remain as a single country means the death of all 50 states. That is not acceptable. Conservatives agree that you amputate that portion of the body with national gangrene... socialism... in order to save that portion of the country that is healthy.
The states on the left (west) coast and the states on the northeastern coast will, of course, be the die-hard socialist states and will have to figure out their own survival. As their money dries up, the northeastern states may well apply to Canada for acceptance into Canada. The states on the western coast will probably do the same, but, I expect they will apply to China to sponsor them as client states.
What about all those states in the middle of the former USA. My guess would be lots of small republics will be formed through-out what was the heartland.
Of course, I am guessing about the alignment of states after the collapse of America. But think for just a moment. A goodly number of conservative writers are speculating about the same thing. SOMETHING is about to happen. To think that America can survive in her current state of apathy and ignorance is to chase after an ethereal dream.
