Splitting the US by Facebook
The United States has been trying to fragment ever since it was founded as a patchwork nation in the late 18th century. It has never truly been one homogeneous nation of persons sharing the same religion, the same educational level, the same ethnicity, the same class, or the same outlook. Outsiders sometimes tried to take advantage of the internal divisions. The British Empire never expected the US to last so long, and took many active steps to hasten its disintegration -- to the point of siding with the Confederacy in the US Civil War.Russian Wishful Thinking
The most powerful disuniting and disintegrating force the US has faced since 1865 is undoubtedly the presidency of Barack Obama -- the president sworn to defend a constitution that he hates. Mr. Obama's most potent weapon against the US is economic doom, created via exponential debt
The Obama - Pelosi regime is taking budget deficits to an unprecedented level
. It is difficult to visualise the end result of this exponential "snowballing" train wreck of deficits -- slippery mixed metaphors cannot even touch it.

A fragmentation of the US is not impossible. Although Vermont and Louisiana were both explored and developed by French settlers, it is difficult to see them as part of the same country at times. Alaska has little in common with California. Mississippi and Minnesota may be connected by one river, but they are worlds apart in many ways.
Holding the 50 states (57?) together has always been a monumental task -- even for presidents who actually loved the United States and the US Constitution. Imagine how difficult the task will be in the aftermath of a president whose young mind was imprinted with a hatred of the US, and who has managed to leverage that animosity -- concealed behind a thin veneer of aloof "cool" -- into the power to frac and crack at the heart of the republic to his heart's content?
The US is experiencing many powerful fragmentary forces as a result of immigration policy, as a result of affirmative action neo-tribalist faux multiculturalism, as a result of a culture war that simmers when it doesn't burn outright, and as a result of a media and academia that genuinely appears to wish to create greater schisms and divides.
Doombama -- as instantiated in the Obama - Pelosi reich -- has another three to seven years of havoc to wreak upon the American citizen and taxpayer. No one knows what will remain at the end of that time. Draw your own map.
