[COLOR=red]SHOULD THE[/COLOR] [COLOR=white]UNITED[/COLOR][COLOR=white] [/COLOR][COLOR=blue]STATES DIVIDE?[/COLOR] [COLOR=black] As you all know, the United States has recently gone through alot of internal problems with politics. "Either you love it, or hate it" a common phrase used by Americans. Well what if we love it, but not its policies, and the leadership, not to mention the most important and vital part of our government...........The People. Have the citizens of the America grown intolerant to one another? My answer is yes, just look around, either you see a movie, or picture bashing a liberal, or a conservative. It's either you watch Bill O' Rielly, or Chris Matthews. The Daily Show, or The Colbert Report. Either you are a yankee or a rebel. Red or Blue? It seems white has just blurred into both colors, and when the elections come up, its nothing more than a bullying contest. It seems that today Americans can agree on only one thing defeating the terroists, but even that has lines were the red and blue stand. I think it's safe to say America has just grown intolerent, of its neighbors, and of itself. About 200 years ago we had the same problem, that resulted in bloody civil war, and a mass of American people that holds a grudge towards the union. Today, even a bicentinial cannot keep this grudge between policies down. [/COLOR] So, to make a long post short, Do you think the United States of America split? If not, why and what should the US do to bring the American people together. (and No, not a terrorist act) If yes, How should the US divide?

Yes, but that was between the people and the government, the majority was against the war, and LBJ. Today, it is 50/50 which is worse.

:lol:

Lucas could then quit dancing around that loser Jar Jar and add a character that more historically represents what he is supposed to sound like.

Of course we shouldn't divide, what a foolish notion that is. In case you haven't noticed, The Colbert Report isn't a conservative answer to The Daily Show. It is exactly the opposite, Colbert's show is mocking the programs hosted by conservative personalities. But back on topic, there are no clear divisional lines. Liberal areas include, basically, every major urban area and the surrounding parts of the country. But then look at the rest of the country, all conservative. Illinois is solid red by county, save the buggers here in Chicago. So what do you propose, a nation of enclaves and exclaves? It wouldn't work, hell, it couldn't work.

And about your statement saying that the majority of people opposed the Vietnam war in the US, you're dead wrong. If that was true, the prick McGovern would have won, not Nixon who promised an honorable end to the war, not an immideate pullout demanded by the anti-war movement. Apparently you haven't heard of the Silent Majority.

The people were split on the Vietnam War, not just the people versus the government. I would say more so than they are today.

Dividing the country would only intensify the dispute. It's not a nice situation, but dividing the country? Well, California should depart from the mainland, that'd be nice : P

Don't, for one, in a map showing where wear democrats and republicans live, the democrats congregated in the major cities and republicans were all out in the country. So there's no real way to divide..... Another reason would be that it would weaken us, sure half the US doesn't agree with the Bush administration, that's expected since all the media does is rail on them day after day.
