Well said.  Please tell us how the "divorce" can be done -- split between east and west, or north  ...

I believe miss JFenix suggests emigration out of the country as means of that divorce.

Whatever problems you are trying to fix, would only get worse by splitting the country. They are not about geography, but people.

What's wrong? 1. Ignorant voters. 2. Too much money influence in elections. 3. Undemocratic Electoral College. 4. Ignorant voters.
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!

Democracy only works when the citizens are well educated and make serious efforts to understand reality.

Unfortunately, Americans are almost always poorly educated and make no effort to understand any of the dozens of complex issues facing Americans. The result is Americans are easily swayed by any of the dozens of groups pushing their own agenda and presenting highly biased views of the issues.

Non stop wars and economic inequality is the result.

The police said one of their officers, whom they have not identified, “observed a man sitting in a partially enclosed patio area directly behind a ‘Private Property’ sign and initiated contact with the man to determine if he was allowed to be on the property.”

Don't do that, my dear. Just get your poop together and impeach the misogynistic megalomaniac. Unf ...

Justin Trudeau has become somewhat of a disappointment with his recent careless mistakes in the handling of the SNC-Lavalin controversy. That was a simple disagreement among cabinet members that he amplified by criticizing the stubborn Attorney-General Wilson-Raybould. He shows a certain impulsivity of youth and too much egotism. Nevertheless, his policies are generally moderate and progressive; and I'll continue to vote Liberal to avoid another rightist Conservative government that will rob the poor to feed the rich.
