The anger and animosity of the American populace is boiling over in 2020, just as we prepare to head to the polls to elect our next President. Perhaps it is this electoral endeavor that has us so inexorably angry.  These cyclic events do tend to sharpen the divide between left and right here in the United States, and this election in particular feels personal, if we’re being honest.

And while it may sound alarmist to insinuate that our nation is as divided as it was before the Civil War, there is evidence piling up that seems to support this idea.

“Oregon is controlled by the northwest portion of the state, Portland to Eugene. That’s urban land, and their decisions are not really representing rural Oregon,” said Mike McCarter, president of Move Oregon’s Border for a Greater Idaho. “They have their agenda and they’re moving forward with it, and they’re not listening to us.

In Virginia, the newly elected Democratic majority’s progressive legislation on issues such as gun rights has spurred “Vexit,” or “Virginia exit,” a campaign to merge right-tilting rural counties into neighboring West Virginia that organizers say has the potential to catch fire nationwide.

And there’s more!

In New York, the idea is to shear The Big Apple off of something they’d call “New Amsterdam”, relegating the Five Burroughs to an existence akin to the District of Columbia.

For California, a three-way split has been imagined.

Unlike the first Civil War, however, there doesn’t appear to be a single “rights” issue that is driving these secessionists.  Instead, these potential maneuvers are being considered on account of an overall disdain for the “other side’s” political beliefs, with rural locales railing against metropolitan municipalities down their predictably partisan lines.

    This is a good thing. It may open a few eyes. It would be interesting to see how long those over-populous Islands could survive without their true Blood-Line
