10. After listening to the thought leaders of the Repuke party for several
years (Frist, Dobson, Falwell, Robertson, Delay, Rove, Cheney, et al)
I think that the differences in what the two dominant cultures (reason vs theocracy) in this country are insurmountable. We should have a divorce, and split this country into two.

Let them enable their racist, militarist, anti-science theocracy and run their country as they see fit. And let the reason based community continue on with the US Constitution, fair and certifiable elections, and the Bill of Rights as a guiding principle.

The brain drain out of Jesusland will be stunning, and their descent into third world status unparalleled. Businesses will initially flock into Jesusland where they can control the agenda and steal with impunity. It will be a short term advantage. You cannot run a modern enterprise with people that can recite 200 Bible passages, but are illiterate in math and science.

The divide between our world views and goals is far too wide to cross. We should go our separate ways rather than try to subjugate each other into societies that neither side can tolerate.
