Also speaking as a Historian NateR philosophy prof was right we are more divided then ever. Modern times are a carbon copy of the years leading up to the War for Southern Independence. (Civil War for you Yankees) The difference is today the Media and education system is much more controlled by one side so it will be much more implausible for any real movement till more people either get their kids out of the brainwash centers and stop buying every lie spouted om CNN, MSNBC, HNN, and yes even Fox. If any area can pull it off it will be Texas, OK, MO, and parts of Ark. The other areas have to many metropolises to deal with.
