A Different Type of Secession

 From Townhall:

Citizens living outside of ultra-progressive urban areas do not accept what is going on in large cities. Surely, the thinking is, “I am not one of them. They are different from me. We do not agree on basic things, like what laws should govern human conduct.”

This mental disassociation did not exist in previous times of crisis in our country. There was much more national unity in December of 1941 or even September of 2001. At that time, rural Americans and city dwellers still had many shared values and followed the same laws. Clearly, the similarity in culture and politics between rural and urban Americans is dying, and the pace of its death march is quickening.

This same type of disassociation is also felt by many Americans living in suburban areas. They recognize their way of life is incompatible with that exhibited in large cities. This results in suburban dwellers venturing into cities less often. Once there, they feel unsafe and unwelcome. According to the FBI, crime rates in our urban areas are significantly higher than in suburban and rural areas. (Read more.)

Creating a 'Them and Us' mentality among Americans is the main thrust of the Left Wing/Communist/Socialist/Democrat Party agenda in this Country. This ploy is taken directly from the book 'Rules for Radicals' authored by Communist agitator, writer and community organizer, Saul Alinsky, to break down the cohesion within this Country and make it easier to destroy our Democratic-Republic traditions based on our Constitution. We are currently witnessing the effects of this. Friends, neighbors and even family members who co-existed despite of differences in political party affiliations are now engaging in verbal attacks and insults. We have also seen the physical assault and property destruction upon private businesses and their owners. It is frightening to imagine where this is leading our beloved Country.
