Individuals my differ on specific points--I disagreed with a couple of Mark Levin's points in The Liberty Amendments, for example--but in general, this is a good starting point for a nation based on conservative principles:
It’s becoming pretty clear that, like their Democrat forefathers, today’s Democrats are convinced that America is entirely too free and that they must take their blue states and secede. We normals no longer meet their high moral standards, what with our insistence on believing in God, having a voice in our governance, and our primitive desire not to have men lurking in women’s restrooms. Plus guns.

Fine. Let them go. Good riddance. We’ll be able to pray and have our voices heard by government even as we continue to embrace anti-#Science concepts like chromosomes determining your sex. Plus guns.

You liberals should take your blue state coastal enclaves and become the United States of Sweden. Just remember that you will have made your Ikea futon and you’ll have to sleep in it.

Here are 11 principles to embrace as we move forward after the blue states leave us.
Of course, #1 is the most important of all; without it, the others are meaningless:
1. We must re-ratify the Constitution, only this time we need to actually mean it. Our Constitution needs to say what it says and not what some Ivy League judge angling for Georgetown cocktail party invitations wishes it says. We will become a beacon of freedom when the blue states’ Supreme Court finds the whole Bill of Rights unconstitutional.

I've lived in one of the reddest states in the union for almost
40 years: nice place, nice people. We accept very poor state
government totally controlled by one party and we already meet or
surpass the referenced agenda. C'mon up. You can carry your Glock
40 to classes and no one will complain unless you drop it and it
accidently nails Mary Sue in the second row.

Except the bulk of the revenue is generated in and taxes are paid by those blue states. And the bulk of the social welfare recipients are in those red states. So where does that leave conservatism?

I call BS. California alone has 1/3 of the welfare recipients in the entire country.

As for your question about where this leaves conservatism, my answer is that the laboratory of democracy will provide the answer. If I were a betting man, I know which way I'd bet.

OK, but ...

California has 1/3 of all welfare cases in the entire country.

The laboratory of democracy will provide the answer. If I were a betting man, I know which way I'd bet.

What part of those do you not understand?

mmazenko said...

You're funny.

And, interestingly, I don't see Silicon Valley relocating to North Dakota or Mississippi.

Darren said...

The Port of Long Beach isn't going to relocate, either, but that's OK.

I find it funny that it's you lefties who don't want to see this red/blue split. I think that, deep inside, you know you'd be on the short end of the stick. Besides, lefties *like* compelling the rest of us to accept their socialism. Lefties are all about compulsion--see "union membership, public employee".

You know I'm not a leftie.
