In regards to states righters: fuck them. You know, the ones who think basic human rights should be left to the state to decide? Who cares if some women in some states die from incomplete miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies, or can't afford to take days off work to travel a 1000 miles to seek reproductive care and then might come back to their state and be arrested and charged with murder? It's okay, it's not illegal everywhere!
I was also just thinking if we did really have a civil war and what that would look like! It surely wouldn't be anything like the 1860s. I think it'd be a bunch of Buck McGans, the ones who aren't dead that is, trying to defend their states, actually I should say their white Christian nationalist beliefs, not states. If we did have to secede, I don't think it'd be by state. Too many people in all states who would want different Americas. I think it'd be based on ideology. I don't know, maybe we could give these assholes some unfarmable, landlocked chunk of land and let them do what they want. For our own sake, we can't give them too much land. We'll all have polluted water and their carbon emissions would offset anything we could do in regards to green energy and so forth. Maybe Elon could take them to Mars with him?
