In a US election, most states are pretty much guaranteed to vote a certain way. Amazingly, these political parties are actually distinguishable from one another (this is not the case in my country, in which all politicians are equally corrupt, greedy liars that may as well be in a single political party). These parties have been arguing over the same points for decades.
The solution is obvious. Split the republican states and the democrat states into two separate countries. Swing states can either pick and choose, redefine their borders or emigrate. A couple of suggestions for the name of the resulting republican country are Acirema and ‘merica.
This way, the democratic country can have free healthcare, while the republican country can have all the guns they want and so on.
P.S. This post is tongue in cheek. Don’t take it too seriously (unless you’re a US president and think it’s a good idea!)
