When I see stupid stuff like the ridiculous, legally laughable, Texas lawsuit and the Republicans that signed on to it, plus the everyday politics of Alabama and Mississippi, etc. I jokingly say I blame Lincoln - he should have let them secede.
Imagine The North and the South without a civil war. Just separating. One country smart and respected - the other racist, ignorant, voting rights suppressed, different education systems for the wealthy and the poor, the blacks and the whites, Jim Crow unchecked, the leaders lie and the people chuckle about it, laughed at by the rest of the world. Trumpland! And the United States not perfect but with leaders that are called out for not telling the truth, with values like public education, healthcare, equality, the right to vote, conservatives, moderates and liberals arguing real issues.
George Washington famously turned down a third term as President. If someone went to Donald and said Don you have been such a great President we want you to be our President for life --What do you think Donald Trump would say?
