Bigotry and racism shows itself it many ways. The previous posts verify that!

Exactly the issue on this forum to a fault ++. And a major contributor to why politics in Washington DC are so very polarized and nothing gets done.

I remember when in school being taught to listen to other opinions; even the single opposing opinion on the chance that would be the only one accurate or correct. That opposing person today could be shouted down, removed or even bodily harmed.

In the current day thinking there is no allowance for agreeing to disagree.

Sorry Rodney, not really. The words have a nice ring to them but human interaction reveals that we cannot get along.

The proposed 4 nation split would include a common defense agreement. Most wars will be hi-tech, i.e. drones. The US population is too big and diverse to be a coherent nation in the future. Too many groups want special privileges, their are no "norms". Some groups are out-of-control and anti-American.

Good post. Respect is earned not provided by the government. Diversity of opinion is a right and should be encouraged, not discourage or shouted down as done by the media and special interest groups.

I fully realize that my few dollars and the few dollars of people like me do not make any difference to these stores, but it is still an expression of my opinion.
Wow I love hobby lobby and love seeing the beautiful christian items for sale. As a store who is very family oriented and still closes on Sundays I respect that . Remember when we were kids? How many stores closed on Sundays? I love the fact they are a Christian based store with good old traditional values, not to mention the beautiful decor they carry.

The most frightenly accurate phrasing of the issue(s) we are confronted with, I have seen to date.

But you already lost the civil war. Each of your four countries could then select their bigotry of choice. Like it or not, we are one nation, and eventually we will have majority rule if we get big money out of politics, impose term limits, and enforce anti-trust laws as they were designed. As Bernie sanders said a couple of days ago, we are losing our democracy. It is being bought out by a select group of billionaires. And we are buying their lies as gospel, as they wrap themselves in our flag that they could care less about. We are a consumer nation. Jobs are not created by these wealthy thieves, they are created by demand for a product or service. Open your eyes America before it's too late!

For the record, I believe this would be a huge and irreversible mistake.

Having said that, I'm curious to hear how you would split things up? In some cases, you'd have to carve up existing states not just rearrange the 57 we currently have.

In the US our free society provides a set of rules under the Constitution by which we originally agreed to ban together. In the 21st Century the compact is no longer effective. We have no standards of behavior, personal discipline and think each group is "entitled" to personal gain and respect. The US needs to breakup into smaller countries, probably 4, each of which can offer people a choice of values.
The non Christian religions would fit in RI. For some reason people can not see all our Christian churches in the USA!

Or maybe we're having this conversation because many people are sick and tired of the intellectual violence being advanced by the conservative community on anyone who opposes their idea of what the world should look like.

This is just too delicious ... have you been to a college campus lately? Talk about intellectual violence, censorship, and PC groupthink. You seem to be suffering from delusional projection disorder

That's funny stuff... If there was any validity to that argument, I guess all college graduates would be flaming liberals. But they aren't. You seem to be suffering form delusional projection disorder.

But wait a minute, someone on here keeps bringing up the high percentage of young people who are, and that being one of the reasons for another guaranteed Dem win for the Presidency. So who's right? And about the college campuses being overrun by liberal agendas and PC foolishness - I'm not so far removed from that scene and I'd have to agree with the former poster - it is unfortunately alive and well on most campuses.
