Split the US into two countries?

This is a provocative column from the right suggesting that the country is irreparably divided and should be split into two countries.  I certainly disagree about where the blame belongs.

I do think it will be very hard to unify the country going forward.  We can’t even agree on basic facts.  I think this is because of all the vile nonsense spread by right wing conspiracy theorists starting with the president.

I don’t know how this ever gets fixed as long as there is all kinds of unverified crap on the Internet.


Update: an article discussing various right-wing people supporting this idea
