Will there be a New Republic of North America? By Peter Burrows 2/28/21 firstname.lastname@example.org
The Democrats would probably win every future presidential election if they could eliminate the Electoral College. In two of the last four elections, the Republican won without a majority of the popular vote, and it almost happened again in the latest election. Presidents Al Gore and Hillary Clinton would be facts, not historical footnotes.
Some Republicans have argued that eliminating the Electoral College would be “an urban power grab,” which is true, but it’s also true that most Americans live in urban areas, overwhelmingly so, and why shouldn’t their votes count as much as any other citizen’s?
The problem with that is it would ensure one-party rule and the inevitable abuse of power that would entail. We’re seeing it already, as Biden signs executive orders by the dozens with no congressional oversight and none to be expected from the Democrat controlled Congress. As a consequence, people all over the nation are being stripped of their rights, from female athletes to owners of oil wells, and it’s just beginning.
If you don’t like this, there’s not much you can do short of leaving the country, which is precisely what some people are thinking about doing, and on a grand scale. I touched on this in “Is The New Republic of Texas just the beginning?” (2/18/21.) I expect Florida will be the next state to consider secession, and there could be many more. Yes, unilateral state secession is unconstitutional, but that will be a lame argument from people who are in the process of destroying the Constitution.
The reality of America’s new demographics is startling. Los Angeles county, that’s COUNTY, has a population of 10 million people, which is greater than the population of 38 different states. That little bit of trivia won’t be so trivial if the Electoral College is eliminated.
For example, the total populations of North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Utah, are less than that of LA County. Those states border one another and would form a fairly large country. Importantly, they all voted for Trump, and by at least 57 percent of the vote. Do you think the voters in those six states want to be ruled by the people in LA County?
What if those states get together and decide to become The New Republic of North America? Furthermore, the new nation would probably be joined by many of the eastern counties of Oregon and Washington, most of the northern counties in Nevada, and some of the western counties in Minnesota. Ditto for a county or two from Denver-dominated Colorado, something already happening.
(A group in Weld County, Colorado, is working to put a measure on the November 2021 ballot that would have the county “explore the annexation of Weld County with the state of Wyoming’s Legislature.” YES!)
About now, some of you are looking at a map, nodding your heads and are noting that the new country would not only be pretty big but would have a long international border with Canada, giving it guaranteed access to world markets. Some of you may also notice that Nebraska fits nicely on the southeast corner of the new country, and that Nebraska also voted for Trump, with 58.5 percent of the vote.
So, why didn’t I include Nebraska?
Mea culpa. If I did so, the population of the new country would be greater than that of LA County by a million or so. Not so dramatic a scenario then. But, yes, Nebraska would probably want to join, which would pull in most of the northwest counties in Iowa, and probably some in north Kansas. The possibilities, while not endless, are pretty damn long.
Those seven states and the New Republic of Texas, which would very probably include Oklahoma, would almost certainly be joined by a Republic of Florida. That would be 10 states becoming three new nations, and it might not end there. After all, who wants to live in a nation ruled by dysfunctional cities, where people defecate on sidewalks, shoplifters are not arrested, white people are demonized and there are over a hundred different genders? Oh, and you’ll be jailed as a bigot if you don’t agree with that last bit of moronic progressive “thinking.”
Of course, any secession movement will be called “racist,” and the new nations will, in fact, have much smaller minority populations. This might even trigger a serious effort to form a separate black nation, as Louis Farrakhan has long advocated. Still, the “racist” charge will be a tough sell when the first president of The New Republic of Texas is Allen West, whom I intend to campaign for after I move to Abilene.
