19. The country is divided because RW chose to divide.

As you stated, the blue metro areas are the engines of production in this world - yet we're severely underrepresented in this system, ie the Electoral College, the Senate, etc.

Rural whites control the game, why this country is so backward, as blue votes matter far less than red votes due to the way the system is structured.

Blue America has the population, the energy, the purchasing power - we can easily boycott Red America and put the hurt on them until they stop their bullshit. We could easily get our food/goods from Mexico and Canada or from blue states/areas. Fuck'em. They wanted to play hardball well it's time to play hardball.

There's no such thing as a blue city. C_U_L8R Mar 2020 #1
