Cards on the Table, Divorce, American Style

Cards on the Table, Divorce, American Style

In the winds I hear Murphy, in a wonderful mood, whispering seductively:

“Isn’t it time to realize the dream some Founders shared, of a league of independent republics?  After all, the discipline imposed on rebellious states after the Civil War has run its course and there are now serious efforts to overthrow the federation’s duly elected government.  Why not a federation of three Pacific States in the West and another with New England and New York in the East with the rest remaining as they are, army, air force, navy and all?”

Hmmm, where would the two new capitals be?  And would there really be a league?  And what about Key West?  What would the flags look like and would there be seats in the UN for all three?

Is Murphy always wrong?
