With the Democrats’ maniacal actions since January 6th, not to mention Leftist tech giants, a fawning and mendacious press, street-mob organizations, and Obama-styled weaponized federal agencies aiding and abetting Democrats, endless conflict is all but predictable. No one can guarantee the USA will exist for the duration of the decade, let alone the next four years, or even this year.
Our 245-year experiment in representative democracy is rapidly fraying at the edges, and not merely because of anarchists and agitators or a contested election. Big money has always been the controlling factor in Washington D.C. Today, the levels of influence peddling are unprecedented and getting worse.
No Middle Ground
Democrats and Republicans once sought to join together on critical issues for the good of the Union, at least some of the time. Today partisan politics predominates. We now approach $28 trillion in debt and $153 trillion in unfunded liabilities, a level that is unconscionable and represents theft of our children’s and grandchildren’s heritage. Concurrently, Communist China increasingly operates in the foreground to undermine our every institution.
The sentiment that the U.S. is a global force for good is a sentiment shared by at least half of our friends around the globe, and even begrudgingly by our enemies after the dust settled — think Germany and Japan — but the sentiment cannot be as potent when there is constant internal strife. Domestic dissension and sedition, the lobbying stranglehold, and outright Leftist treason has left our friends befuddled and our enemies bemused and emboldened.

Meanwhile, the world is suffering, beyond the ravages of the coronavirus and in ways that few people could have predicted. More refugees populate the earth than ever before. Human trafficking, often a euphemism for sexual slavery, is a blight on “civilized” societies. The world population is now approaching 8.0 billion people, up from 5.0 billion people in 1985.
Bursting at the Seams
In the U.S. whether or not the mainstream press will ever address the reality, the waves of illegal immigrants from 2008 to 2020 have strained our resources, while Biden and company promise to open the floodgates. Local and state governments are bursting at the fiscal seams.
Crime is rampant among communities with an influx of illegal aliens. A visit to the Drug Enforcement Administration website reveals the country of origin of those criminals most wanted by the D.E.A. in cities across America. Hint: Overwhelming it is Mexico.
Despite record amounts spent on education, our schools were already failing, before the current shutdowns. Minority academic underachievement has been near-constant for decades, even in the most “progressive” communities with the most “progressive-thinking” teachers. Hordes of immigrant children, primarily hailing from Latin America, will further strain school districts.
Fracturing along Ideological Lines
On the East Coast and the West Coast, deep pockets of liberalism prevail. In the center of the country, conservatism prevails. Communities are organizing along political divisions and feel “the other side” simply doesn’t get it: espousing policies, theories, and beliefs contrary to the best interests of our civilization.
Personally, I don’t wish to reside in a land dominated by the fake news media, the current Senate and Congressional leaders, billionaire “progressives” bent on censorship, sell-out corporations, a two-tier justice system, and a school system designed to poison the minds of our children.
The U.S. might fracture and become two or three countries. The geography for such a partition, of course, is not convenient. How do you combine California, Oregon, and Washington, with New England and the left-leaning Mid-Atlantic States? They are joined together by ideology, while thousands of miles apart.
If we the U.S. were to split into two nations, beyond the inconvenient geography many problems would occur from legal, political, and trade standpoints.
No Going Forward Like This
Regardless, we cannot continue in the current mode. The far-left is pulling away from everyone else in the nation, even from rank and file “progressives.” The age of the “somewhat reasonable” progressive, if there ever was one, is passing rapidly.
Many on the right would just as soon let the rabble-rousers go: What is the point of trying to maintain the Union with people who wish to “re-educate” you?
All the above points to the reality that the U.S. as we know it could soon be irretrievable.
