The best thing that could happen is not just that "they" leave if "their" guy loses, but that they take their ball (state, region, whatever) and go home.

The US is divided between Conservative and Liberal, and the only way to once and for all prove whose ideology is a greater path to prosperity is to divide the country by political affiliation.

(FWIW, the liberal left will never allow the conservo-right their freedom. Socialism depends on those who are willing to work hardest, and those hardest workers are the ones who believe they are entitled to the fruits of their labor.)

I must confess that I too have thought about the appeal of dividing the country, using the MIssissippi River as the border, giving one side to the liberals/socialists and the other to conservatives/capitalists. It seems the two sides will never agree on any issue so division seems somewhat logical. Until, that is, there become divisions among the residents of each side. what then, further divisions? It wouldn't be long before the United States became balkanized, with each state becoming its own country. The house divided would then truly fall.

I think he has that backwards, but the idea that we divide the country is something I have thought of. I'm not willing to live by their standards, and they are not willing to allow me my standards. Split the country into red and blue states. Decide what you want and move accordingly. For myself and my family, should Florida go blue, I would move to north Texas, which I know would be red. Make trade agreements with the blue states, but stay separate. They get none of our tax money, we, none of theirs. They will end up broke and starving in no time.

Dahni ( WTF kind of tag is that?) Liberals/Leftists/ Dems/ Progressives--take your pick from the ever-changing, defensive morphing terminology--do indeed eat the flesh of productive people. They are parasitic until such point they kill their host and become saprophytic. The leftist movement in America is a coalition of autocratic power grabbers, useful idiot "do good" elitists, commies, Islamists, domesticated minorities, sexually frustrated feminists, teat-sucking welfare cripples and so-called media and educational intelligentsia. America will either take the next step in reforming itself in this election cycle or collapse as a republic with questionable probability of resurrection. Wake up America or die in your sleep.

As we enter the final days of the 2012 campaign, cries from both sides are echoing over the airwaves that the country will not survive a victory by the other side’s candidate. Some Republican die-hards worry that the United States of America will cease to exist as we know it if Barack Obama is reelected. For their part, many dyed-in-the-wool Democrats are wringing their hands over the possible election of Mitt Romney, an event which in their view will destroy the America they prefer.
