Federalism? - Riffs and Licks
Is it, perhaps, time to give up on a national consensus? Allow the red states to become as red as they like? Let them pass more and more restrictive and oppressive laws until they drive every intelligent and tolerant person to move away to one of the coasts? Let them make their own beds, and see who lies in them?

Why not? As long as they keep their hands off Federal law, which I have no doubt they won't. To quote Neil Peart: "Those who know what's best for us must rise and save us from ourselves."

Very tempting; one problem, however: with the red states' control of Congress, repressive national legislation is inevitable. How could they resist imposing their gospel from coast to coast?
