Dismembering the Union is not an option. If we are to survive as a nation we must present an united front to the world. Remember nearly everyone hates us, especially those we have helped the most. If America Balkanizes she will die. Mexico is already pushing masses of people into our country and others will try to capitalize.
If American turns into the Balkans she will indeed die, but this is exactly what our liberal enemies in fascist controlled California and Communist controlled D.C wants. This is also what our other enemies want--and yet we cannot even now present a united front because we have a federal government who panders to the special interest groups like the Brady Center, and the "international community" which hires lobbyists to destroy our nation in their favor. The purpose of the federal government was extremely limited originally--to provide a united defense to invasion through the raising of armies, and the levying of war against our enemies were the two primary purposes of the federal government...We need to get back to the original intent of our founding fathers and get the federal government out of the business of the American people and out of our pockets....
What about Canada? Canada is a cypher. She will always take the path of least resistance while wrapping herself in the PC flag.
Canada is a socialist joke the same as the French.
Whatever happens we have to present a strong, united front to the world. Given this imperative, the sovereign states must be allowed to decide for themselves their course on firearms and other visceral issues.
Indeed, the states and the people who reside in them should worry about our own business and let the federal government worry about its Constitutionally limited purpose and leave state matters to the STATES.
