"Why not turn their hate against them?"
I am not talking about rehashing the violence of the civil war either. Although I do find it interesting that if we did the states would essentially break along the same lines as they did in 1861. I guess what they say really is true
"The more things change the more things stay the same"
What I am talking about is rehashing the constitution, the frame-work of government and entire "united" states. In fact what I'm proposing, the real prescription to fix this thing, is to establish the Un-united States Of America. I know it sounds drastic, and i'm not really all that serious about it, but don't let that deter you. This idea ends red hate, so without further ado here's all we have to do to fix the entire country 8 years
We elect two presidents every 4 years. One president to run those states voting red and one president to run those states voting blue. For the sake of simplifying things lets just say the House and the Senate are shared. There are plenty of details and obstacles with this "plan" but they aren't important you'd of course have to re-frame the government if you set up this system so lets just speak in the hypothetical terms that those details were worked out.
