Knapp Suggests Secession

I was surprised to see my internet buddy, Tom Knapp, making the case for an "amicable divorce" in this country. He makes a good one:

"Maybe it’s time to try this secession thing again, minus the four years of war and the million dead. Activists in California and Oregon certainly think so — they’re already cranking up ballot initiatives to take their states out of the union.
And why not? America never has really been one country in a cultural sense. Not in 1776, not in 1860, not today."

I still don't think it could happen without civil war. There's too much at stake for many. Besides, war is an American tradition, isn't it?

Are you kidding me? The rest of the nation has been begging for Calif to exit for years! There will be parades & concerts, & cheering in the streets. The only "weapons" used will be confetti blasters blasting confetti into the wind.

Except that California pays more tax $$$ into the Federal system than just about all the dead-beat red states, except Texas. True for most other blue states too. And here we thought the blue states were the true believers in welfare economics.
Try eliminating Farm Subsidy program, for example, from those same red states and see what happens. Republican welfare. It's what's for dinner.
