    What are the forces pulling nations apart? Ethnicity, culture, history and language — but now also economics. And separatist and secessionist movements are cropping up here in the United States.

    While many Red State Americans are moving away from Blue State America, seeking kindred souls among whom to live, those who love where they live but not those who rule them are seeking to secede.

    Almost all of this can be prevented in unions were made illegal and the United Sates Government got out of the welfare business. That means giving up the entitlements to the states to dole out instead of making it all centralized gulag type control.

    Many of the state problems originate, or are exacerbated by Washington.

    According to The Times, hardest hit public pension plans will be those in Illinois, New Jersey and Kentucky. But many states will feel the sting, and plans covering teachers will be among those most adversely affected. Many states have failed to make sufficient contributions to pension funds to counter for the terrible investment returns of the past dozen years. They’ve been kicking this problem down the road for at least a decade.
