It'll never happen. The fiscally irresponsible states (generally, but not exclusively blue) such as Illinois, where I live for now and California rely on the responsible states (generally, but not exclusively red) to support them. We are seeing people flee many blue states for either red or purple states. Californians are leaving in droves for Arizona and Texas. Houses in SE Wisconsin (a purple state) just over the Illinois border which are in decent condition and priced right sell in days as people flee Illinois for there. While this isn't a civil war, we are seeing a population shift as people are voting with their feet. I hope the people that left blue states leave their voting habits behind as well. Moving to a new state and then voting for the same policies that ruined the state you fled is moronic.
