Every year the US government grows larger, makes undeliverable promises, and sinks further into debt. Every year our country grows more divided and citizens are becoming more polarized politically. In the future it is evident that the United States will become more polarized and now violence is becoming the norm. How long will it be before there is another bloody civil war? The best way to generalize this polarization is to recognize that the "Red States" and the "Blue States" are just plain different on almost all important issues. These differences are widening and increasingly exacerbated by uncompromising and nonproductive Washington, D.C. politics. The Jackson Amendment to the US Constitution will allow Red States to fulfill their destiny without interference form the Blue States and vice versa.
