“The Two State Solution for America” – a path to political sanity? Author proposes an idea many of us have at least considered. The problem we see with it is that the division is really more between urban/rural than by state. Illinois, for example, is Chicago surrounded by a red state, but because of the former’s large population, the state as a whole is blue. A better idea might be simply to have more power devolve back to the individual states – if that were possible with the current statist political class.
