Then your argument, in turn, is "Anyone who disagrees with me wants to lose".

The way you insist on attacking me with insults tells me you're just arguing to feel better about about yourself and get an emotional ego high from the idea that you're superior to me.

Either states have self determination or they don't.

Do counties within a state have self determination and the right to secede?

Do towns within a county have self determination and the right to secede?

Do individual city blocks within a town have self determination and the right to secede?

Do individual households within a city block have self determination and the right to secede?

Frankly, I'm watching the Republicans harder than I am the Democrats because I feel safe just assuming that all elected Democrats are up to no good.

Republicans I have to actually weed through so I know which ones are worth voting for.

She's going to be sooooooooo disappointed when she finds out I don't actually own any of the military hardware I sent her pictures of because I just searched for them online and picked the ones I thought would impress her the most.

It probably works "better" for the men who are adept at "putting women in their place" by any means necessary.

Or in societies that collectively get the women to go along with being universally submissive.

You think they wouldn't do everything in their power to corrupt the Red States and bring them back into the fold?

If Globalism is their goal, then a 'semi-divided nation' just slows down the process.

Would our medical establishment really punish an entire country for refusing the jab?

Yes, absolutely.

Withdrawl is step 1.

Step 2 is to offer a clear apology for their actions, to fire everyone responsible for it, and to promise never to do it again.

The way you're falling back on baseless insults tells me you've already ended the debate and you're just looking to save face. Which included trying to worm your way around my questions and arguments.

This debate started by comparing two different reasons for secession, and you're now trying to end the debate by just asking me to say one way or the other if I think states today should be 'allowed' to secede?

Then the metaphor needs to be better thought out and written.

50 were created from either one territory or from other states.

No, that's a bad misinterpretation of how it works.

Give me genuine examples of established states breaking into multiple pieces based on disagreements from the populace of those states. All the rest of those territories still remained a part of the same larger whole, and happened as bureaucratic organization, not as "We don't like the state we're in so we're going to take the land we're living on and make a new state".

You've got West Virginia splitting from the rest of Virginia, which happened under very unique circumstances, and they promptly turned around to help the rest of the Union bring the rest of Virginia back into the Union.

And then you insist on falling back on blanket insult statements and emotional claims that just weaken your argument.
