There are always going to be "irreconcileable differences," no matter how much one devolves political authority. Even in a union of two people -- also known as "marriage" -- one will get division. That doesn't mean one races to divorce court. Likewise, the fact that there are cultural differences within, as well as between, so-called Red and Blue states doesn't mean we can't work out those differences. The secessionists, Williams included, haven't even remotely made a case for national divorce.
