Trump says he's a "nationalist" not a "globalist." A nationalist would take care of all of our citizenry, and wouldn't leave countless Americans with generations of nativity impoverished and destitute... while aiding corporations in creating mountains of borderless wealth!
Voting is recommended, but even sweeping Democratic victory will only serve as a check upon the vast powers of the federal government in the hands of a deranged narcissist surrounded by semi-fascist generals and crack-pots.
Liberal and cosmopolitan America must further organize, then throw the tea into the harbor! The majority of Americans and the strong majority of urban Americans are liberal.
Most of our great cities have liberal ideals and local governments. But due to the antiquated electoral college, they are ruled by rural America, which has shown itself to have an open ear to vile demagoguery selling vile and oligarchic plutocracy, nakedly phrased: the worship of wealth and violent might.
Due to prevailing and intolerable demagogy, racism, and tyranny: "It" now "becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another," for red and blue America to split in two... for the noble and generous to split from the bird-hearted xenophobes!
It is good to take time for clarity and organization, but ultimately we must take action before this bellicose and pathological President, often surrounded by the like-minded, involves us in a nuclear war. We had a very near miss when at the U.N. General Assembly of 2017 he threatened the nuclear destruction of every North Korean man, woman and child... gratuitous comments that could have had unspeakable consequences for the peoples of South and North Korea as well as the Japanese people, our pacifist ally.
I realize the suggestion of this essay may be perceived as radical and/or absurd... That a new liberal state should be formed out of the coasts and supportive inland states. It is sedition- but like civilized and good-hearted people across our nation, I have been driven to it by the thousand temptations, deceptions and tyrannies of Donald J Trump, a man who through the rancor of his fatuous rhetoric has inspired not only assassination attempts against a litany of America's liberal leadership, (an offense against the responsibility of a President to his political opposition,) but also inspired the largest pogrom in America's history!
It may in all sober gravitas be said that if this nation is to persist as one, we need most earnest conversations and a new understanding as basis; The status quo is an abomination and shall not stand... even if this entails the cure of a national splitting.
