Major Democratic Donor Supports Southern Secession
The reason Congress is deadlocked on so many issues is because there's little national consensus on ANY issue these days. For example, just think how much diversity the rump USA could have if Southern and Western representatives didn't stand in the way of amnesty. So Guy Saperstein, a Democratic Party big shot, has an idea:
A major Democratic donor said he supports Southern secession because the South is “dumbing down” national politics, according to emails from a secret progressive Google group obtained by Media Trackers, a conservative Wisconsin news outlet. In an email thread on Gamechanger Salon—a closed Google group of progressive organizers, reporters, and campaign apparatchiks—Guy Saperstein, a major Democratic donor and part owner of the Oakland Athletics baseball team, said he would support the South seceding. “For more than 100 years, the South has been dumbing down national politics, tilting the country in a conservative direction, supporting militarism, all while demanding huge financial subsidies from blue states,” Guy Saperstein wrote in the emails. “It would be 100% fine with me if the South was a separate nation, pursuing its own priorities and destiny.”But how could we Southerners survive without having San Francisco values imposed on us? And how could we get along without DC's perpetual warfare? Or a $7 trillion (and growing) debt? Or multiculturalism? So please, Mr. Saperstein, don't do it! Please don't throw us in that briar patch! It would just be awful!
