I have come to believe unless all the red states are kicked out of, or allowed to secede from the United States, our nation is headed for another civil war, and secession of the red states. War would be bad…but secession would be good.
I have come to believe this because of what I read on the Cracker Barrel facebook page of people defending the Duck Dynasty asshole bigot, Phil Robertson.
Don’t get me wrong, I fully support and defend Robertson’s right to say any fucking thing he wants. But I also support A&E’s right to suspend him. Robertson is clearly an illiterate moron, his grammar gives him away an an uneducated hick/dick.
The people in the comments defending Robertson are such amazing and complete hypocrites, I find it unfathomable to think civil war can be avoided. I think the obvious solution is for the Federal government to convene a constitutional convention and kick out the so-called “red states.” Without exception, the red states are recipients of more tax money than they send to Washington, so, in fact, for the sensible people of America, letting the red states go would be a HUGE win. The Red states could try to cut us off from, for example, oil importation ports (Houston, New Orleans, Galveston), but they would soon realize to do so would cost them money and given how impoverished the red states would be without assistance from Washington, the Confederate States of America could ill afford to deny the USA the use of said ports. With an appropriately low-ball licensing fee, of course.
I have dear friends in those states, some of whom disagree with me vehemently and I love them anyway. But positions, elections and so forth, have consequences. Their side is shrinking and the more they scream, the closer we come to a shooting war.
For example, I was against sending any disaster relief aid to Oklahoma, because the two senators from that state were holding up relief aid, FOR THEIR OWN CONSTITUENTS, until congress approves spending cuts as “offsets.” The reason I was against sending relief aid to Oklahoma was because the people of Oklahoma voted those two assclowns into office, many times over. And yet, those assclowns elected by the people of Oklahoma were willing to hang their constituents out to dry, leave them with NOTHING, in order to fuck with Obama.
That, kiddies, is NOT fucking patriotic. It’s evil and I believe it’s treasonous.
But the people of Oklahoma are so fucking blinded by wedge issues like gay marriage, abortion and prayer in public schools (where it has NO FUCKING PLACE) they don’t even realize their disaster relief was held hostage, not by Obama or the Democrats, but by their own fucking Senators.
People that stupid are too stupid to be Americans. I’m sorry, but there has always been a very anti-intellectual positon among the conservative christian movement, that somehow having an education, being able to use the language well, is somehow a sign of weakness.
It is not. Stupidity, illiteracy and ignorance are all signs of weakness. Religious fervor, no matter the denomination, is weakness. Whatsamatta, can’t think for yourself? Need some book of rules in order to not be an asshole? If you need that book, you MIGHT be an asshole.
Physical strength, ability to fistfight and shoot guns are not signs of strength. I’m a liberal and I can shoot well enough. I am a firearm owner. Yup, a liberal with guns. I have advocated to my liberal friends to arm themselves because it’s only a matter of time. The shooting will start. It may never end until one side or the other is annihilated. But I think of my ability to use the language to be my greatest strength. That and my ability to be resourceful and to plan ahead for contingencies. But I’d rather kick them out without firing a shot.
Unless the red states are kicked out of, or secede from the union, civil war in the US is inevitable. I won’t predict when it will happen, but I predict it will happen.
