It’s Time For The United States To Divorce Before Things Get Dangerous

From The Federalist:
“When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…” — The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776 
Divorce is hard, but it’s easier than cutting the brake lines on your wife’s car. It is long past time for an amicable divorce of the United States of America. 
There is simply no common ground with the Left anymore. We are now the couple screaming at each other all night, every night as the kids hide in their room. We cannot come together, but we do not have to live like this. 
The history of the world is nations breaking up and redrawing their borders. If we want to avoid this political divide turning into a deadly one, we should do likewise. Stop clinging to the past and acknowledge where we are as a country, not where you want us to be, not where things were when your grandpa was storming the beaches of Normandy. Where we truly are. 
We are a nation hopelessly divided. We are more divided now than we have ever been in our history. And before you start screaming at me about the Civil War, keep in mind that bloody conflict was fought over one major issue. In those days, take ten families from New York and ten families from Alabama, put them all in a room, and you’d find they mostly had the same values (and bad accents). 
Now, fast-forward to today and do that same thing. Those families have virtually nothing in common. We as a nation have polarized and separated from each other. 
Anyone who thinks this is a radical idea has an extremely narrow view of history. If you don’t believe me, go try to book a plane ticket to Czechoslovakia, or look at a map of Europe from the year 1600, then look at one today. See any differences? 
Borders move. Countries split and change hands. They do this for a myriad of reasons. 
Ours would be a major cultural shift toward the left and half the country refusing to go along with tyranny. 
I have been championing this idea for a while, and it appears others are catching on. Just last week, a group of lawmakers in South Carolina introduced a bill that would allow the state to secede if the federal government starts seizing guns. 
Why would those lawmakers even be worried about such a thing? Because Democrats are saying it—and not just some hippie chick with armpit hair at a vegan rally. 
When a former justice of the Supreme Court of the United States calls for a repeal of the Second Amendment, we should take the Left seriously. 
The GOP has many problems, but the Democratic Party has turned into something completely un-American. 
The United States was founded on two things: Judeo-Christian values and a limited federal government. The entire platform of modern Democrats stands completely opposite both of those. This is the party that booed the very mention of the word “God” at their 2016 convention. This is the party whose candidates openly “joke” about killing anyone who won’t turn in his weapons. Their senators joke on national TV about killing the U.S. president, and the host responds by clapping like a seal. 
The 1960s counter-culture liberal protestor who just wanted free weed and an end to the war in Vietnam has been replaced by a man who hunts down Steve Scalise and tries to kill him at baseball practice. 
The Left is not playing games. They are getting bolder, and they are getting more violent. They have no interest in rational compromises. Like all authoritarian ideologies, they want you to bow down before them or be destroyed for daring to resist. 
If you believe in God and limited government, here are the entities that now proclaim their hatred of you in full view of the public: The Democratic Party, media, Hollywood, the public education system, and now even corporate America. 
The GOP may have the House, Senate, and presidency, but we have completely lost the culture war. It does not have to be this way. There is a difficult, but ultimately peaceful path that ends with everyone getting most of what they want. We divide the nation in two. 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. 
I’ve got my own map ...

Disagree with the premise of the post.

Hair on fire.

Let the writer move to Europe.

The State of our Union is strong and governance works - better than the governance of many nations. Above the noise and tumult of the day, culture is sculpted from year to year and reflects the will of a free People. We remain a free People with tremendous blessings afforded which have remained not only in steady state, but gained expansion since our Declaration of Independence. Our track record is good.

Dividing the country will result with a temporary easement of contemporary turmoils.
Look at California and Colorado, Oregon & Washington states. Californians left the state frustrated by it's leftist politics and moved to states like Colorado, Oregon and Washington. Now those states are leaning as progressive as the one they left.
This kind of destructive political migration isn't likely to end by simply changing borders.
Federalists/conservatives/constitutionalists have surrendered too much ground in the past. Instead, we must use the laws we have on the books and fight to regain that ground.
For one thing - recognition of sedition would be a good start. Seditious enterprises like Soros' empire, La Raza, Black Panthers must be challenged legally. Our public educational system must be forced to revisit traditional civics lessons. English as a national language and mandatory civics test to vote at age 18. If one cannot read and comprehend what this nation stands for - why allow them to vote, drive, or collect taxpayer funded entitlements?
The free ride is over. Identity politics be damned for it's divisiveness. We must demand only one standard of laws for equal justice.
