(RepublicanJournal.org) – Some politicians claim they will bring unity to the United States, while others urge the separation of different ideological communities within the nation. The latter is exactly what US House Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) recently proposed on social media, which sparked quite a bit of controversy across the board.
On Monday, February 20, Greene called for “a national divorce” on Twitter, which would allow Republican and Democrat states to fall under different rules. She believes this would allow red states to hold single-day elections with paper ballots, control their children’s education, and have little to no government debt, among other differences.
We need a national divorce.
We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government.
Everyone I talk to says this.
From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are… https://t.co/Azn8YF1UUy

She expounded upon her proposal the following day, writing that the Left and Right have “irreconcilable differences” that must be addressed:
Why the left and right should consider a national divorce, not a civil war but a legal agreement to separate our ideological and political disagreements by states while maintaining our legal union.

During a discussion with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday, Greene told listeners that she does not want Americans to experience another civil war, but she thinks the country is heading in that direction. She called the current government a “complete failure” and criticized the Left’s transgender movement as well as the push for environmental, social, and corporate governance initiatives.
National Divorce is not civil war, but becoming a necessary reality because of our irreconcilable differences.

While it is difficult to comprehend what a divided-yet-united America would look like under Greene’s proposal, Hannity agreed with one of the Georgia lawmaker’s ideas — one which would bar citizens from blue states who move to red ones from voting for five years. While many politicians publicly condemned Greene’s proposal for separating the United States, the Georgian reminded listeners that many of her followers on Twitter liked and retweeted her statement, showing it has at least some support.
America has a long history of feeling the pain of division and disagreement, and yet the nation has always found ways to compromise, work together, and emerge stronger. Some people think the current strains felt by Americans are different than those in the past and are worth the breakup. As politicians put forward ideas like these, it is important that other lawmakers know what their constituents think about such ideas.
