A new poll by Bright Line Watch and You Gov found that a shockingly large number of Americans would be okay with their state seceding from the United States to form a union with more like-minded states.

It’s interesting how easily people flip-flop on the idea of secession. For instance, liberals want to tear down statues of Confederate soldiers because they were treasonous traitors for trying to secede. Then, when Trump was elected, some liberals seriously argued that California should secede. But when some conservative counties wanted to secede from California, secession became unthinkable again.

Of course, as the story notes, this wasn’t a carefully thought-out response (they didn’t phrase it as, “Would you like to have a civil war?”), but the answers are still disturbing for what they tell us about the fractious times in which we live.

Sadly, the left has done a very good job of attacking patriotism and undermining national unity, miseducating young people about America’s history and ideals, abusing government power and turning Americans against each other to advance their political goals. Social media has also had a cancerous effect on national unity and identity, allowing people to live inside bubbles of group-think where they never engage civilly with anyone who disagrees with them and hide behind the anonymity of screen names to threaten and demonize others.

This is why, more than ever, parents need to take back control of schools, so that young generations can again learn why America is such a great nation, and why truly oppressed people risk their lives to come here and wave American flags when they demonstrate for freedom.

That history should also include lessons about the most trying times, like Pearl Harbor and 9/11, when Americans put aside all their bickering and stood together because an attack on any of us is an attack on all of us. Teach them that when the Twin Towers fell in New York City, Texans stood in line to donate blood, and nobody gave a thought to whether their red state blood might be saving a blue state resident. We were all Americans then. We still are. We just need to be reminded more often, without having to suffer a national tragedy to have it brought home to us.

    I still think Convention of States would get things straighten out. the 2020 election and all the executive orders, including the round up of all the criminals.
