Yeah, I’ve been wrestling with that issue myself.
I have extended (albeit estranged) family in Missouri and a few friends scattered around the Midwest from South Dakota to Texas. And you’re right: due to the vagaries of state law, they’re the ones likely to get fucked over the hardest.
That’s why I’m keeping #Wexit in reserve as a last resort: I’d really rather reclaim the liberal American dream for all Americans. And I still hold out hope that fighting off threats to our government from within, by working within the system, will be more feasible than burning it all down.
But Plan A doesn’t always work, and triage is a harsh mistress.
