This one is a real gem from Robert Ringer of the Worldnutdaily:
But the philosophies of the two sides are now so irreconcilable that a more peaceful solution might be for them just to split the country in half and agree to part ways.
Those who believe in big government could take one half of the country and regulate, tax and redistribute wealth to their heart’s content. Within a few short years, of course, it would become a U.S. version of North Korea, devoid of civil liberties and mired in poverty, but, hey, we all get the government we deserve.
After giving the left first choice, conservatives and libertarians could then take the other half of the country – any half would be just fine – and implement a free-market economy that would be as close to laissez-faire capitalism as possible. In a short period of time, it would become a U.S. version of South Korea (or the U.S. itself in the days of yore), with explosive wealth creation and maximum freedom for its citizens.
That’s what passes for thinking on Planet Wingnuttia.
