Anti-government conservatives may finally be getting their wish. Only not in the manner they sought.

It's a long-understood trope that conservative Republicans hate government, and want to abolish it at the Federal level, and proceed with only state governments.

It looks like many people across the country are starting to support this idea. Just not for the reasons anti-everybody right-wingers planned.

With Trump fomenting every sort of legislation aimed at attacking the civil rights of women, minorities, Muslims, LGBTQ, etc. cities and states across the nation are starting to draft laws, or at least resolutions, refuting the aims of the Trump Presidency. San Francisco and other municipalities are declaring themselves sanctuary cities for undocumented immigrants, LGBTQ, etc. Pittsburgh looks like it is going to join other cities and states in banning 'gay-conversion therapy'.

If Trump or his motley collection of cronies protest this at all, one would be wise to mention 'states-rights' and watch them sputter helplessly when confronted with their own tactics.

2. I thought the Balkanization of the USA was centuries away.

It may only be 8-10 years off.

On the day it happens, I'll raise "The Doug" over my home in the Republic of Cascadia...
