With one out of five “strong Republicans” saying a civil war is very likely — and part of the Trump base casually throwing around the word “secession” — one suspects that many residents of MAGAland don’t want to live under their elected national government. They want their own country.

No, I don’t want the United States to break up. I’m a left-leaning moderate living in a Democratic stronghold who truly likes other parts of the country: the rural South, Appalachia, the Great Plains, Texas. Lots of wonderful people there, including many who don’t generally subscribe to my political views. And I’ll go so far as to agree with them on certain items, for example, the ridiculousness of the woke fringe. Keep the United States united, I say.
