I have a feeling support for the political dissolution we’ve long pushed for just became a lot more popular. It’s obviously not scientific but no TradCon influencer would’ve been caught dead entertaining the idea of separation a year ago:
Would you support a plan to break up the United States so that the Left and Right can live in separate countries?

The Supreme Court rejected Texas’ straightforward suit against four states that chose their electors by means in blatant violation of the Constitution. Article II, Section 1, Clause 2:
Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: But no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.”
Neither courts nor governors are constitutionally permitted to determine how electors are appointed. Deadline extensions and ballot mass mailings not approved by the state legislatures are thus unconstitutional.
Texas was effectively dismissed for not having standing to bring the case in a 7-2 decision. The seven included all three of Donald Trump’s appointments to the court. Good thing he went to the mat for Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Coney Barrett. They really came through for him when it counted. Only the black guy and the Med thought middle America deserved to be heard. The court’s WASP told them to go pound sand. The sooner Republican voters realize the people they put in power do not even think their interests should be given a hearing, the better.
If Pennsylvania doesn’t have to play by the rules, why should Texas or any of the other seventeen states that joined it? What are the reasons for half the country to view the federal government as something other than an oppressive occupying force at this point? End the hate, separate.
