If the condescending attitudes displayed here towards states with a minority that want to secede is prevalent, no wonder there are people who want it. I wonder if anyone ever stopped to consider that for a moment.
But that's the common wisdom these days. Insult first, rationalize later, rarely justify.
Yeah, we should be more rational about this. Like the people who love their country so much they want to secede because their guy lost *one* election.
Travel's fatal to prejudice, bigotry, narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things can't be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's life.
