Should America really be 3 separate countries?

    Looking at the electoral map, it's clear america is really three separate countries forced to live under one national umbrella.

    The people of the three different regions have nothing in common and no love or understanding for each other's ways or views.

    The west coast which includes california, oregon, washington state, nevada and arizona should be a separate country. They have more in common with each other and they're mostly in favor of liberalism, immigration, environmental issues, energy independence and tech. they have a lot of trade with asia. Their president would be somebody like gavin newsome.

    the midwest and south are a different culture completely. they care about religion, guns, conservative views of marriage and sexuality, they're against immigration and resistant to racial inclusiveness. their president should be trump

    the northeast (including new york, nj, ri, mass, vermont, maine, PA, maryland, delaware and virginia) is also different. they are very liberal and have the intellectual and financial power houses. They also have a lot of trade with europe. Their president would be cuomo.

    if the country were broken up in this way we would see some huge initial changes such as mass migration of blacks from the south and midwest to the west and east. but in the long run, I think we would have a lot less strife in our lives if we were to break the US up into these three separate sections, each independent of the others and autonomous where people can live their lives without a guy in LA or Newark having to abide by the same laws as some dude from nashville or fort worth.

    The Midwest and south are reliant on the other regions, it would hurt them economically.

    No, our strength comes in our diversity of opinion. If we separated into 2-3 nations all of them would fail.

    Lol, no, the west and the northeast would be just fine. The Midwest/south would be one of those shithole countries Trump despises.

    I actually agree that the US is made up several different countries. Ideally they should separate.

    Realistically? A Midwest/South country headed by Trump would be hell for non-whites, LGBTQ people, etc. You'll see lynchings non-stop, legal open discrimination, etc. Basically an apartheid state with unchecked human rights abuses.

    We have to rule over these regions to keep these things from happening.

    I hope America breaks up. Red states will be a wasteland in under a decade.

    Or we could just get back to our roots as a Republic by redefining the commerce clause and un-incorporating the Bill of Rights.

    The split is actually more between urban and rural areas. If you refocus how you look at it, you will see your method doesnt make sense. The southern states and overwhelmed with small down farmville. All the cities vote blue.

    You’re including Nevada and Arizona as similar to WA, OR, and CA?

    You ever been to va? We’re nothing like the northeast. Virtually polar opposite of maryland, a neighboring state

    This election helped solidify my belief that Massachusetts is in fact our greatest state. Trump got only 32% of the vote and didn't come out ahead in any counties.

    Biden is Irish Catholic, they have a huge Mass constituency and they’re very tribal people. If Kamala was top of the ticket I can guarantee Trump would’ve won a few counties. I went to HS in mass, it’s not as forward thinking as you’d think. Racism in some parts of mass is just as bad as the Deep South.

    I don’t know what this means in reference to red states being a wasteland if the country broke up.

    Even the states are pretty different within the state.

    "Pennsylvania is Philadelphia in the east, Pittsburgh in the west, and Alabama in the middle."

    Even in my own state, NY, once you get passed Westchester it turns to garbage.

    The conservative Midwest-south can’t survive economically without the money that comes in from the west coast and northeast. They’ve been essentially subsidized for years, Texas and Florida are the only ones that have any substantial economic activity, otherwise they are gonna have to sell a lot of corn.

    they would simply have to learn to get along without those states. that would be the price to pay for not having liberals running the government.
