2. Citizens in the Republican Country would be allowed to own firearms. ...

That would likely not be allowed in the Democratic Country unless you were rich and well connected.

3. The non contiguous layout of Democratic states

Leads me to believe it would likely not form one country. Also the cultural differences seem to be far greater than those of the red states.

the bigger problem is that the state level does not show the real nature of the ideological make up.. Illinois outside of Chicago for instance, or Memphis, or Atlanta in the red states...

8. Yeah. I think our probably-inevitable breakup...

...will be into smaller regional polities. Not as small as the current 50 states, but probably something like 7 or 8 new nations. Can't happen too soon (full disclosure: I'm a Cascadian secessionist).

4. don't have to look it up, the narrator says "democrat states"

there are vast red counties in every blue state. the citoes in red states are blue, so start any partition along this line with the kind of mass migrations that accompanied the partition of india and the east and west pakistans and the kind of ethnic cleansing that accompanied the partition of yugoslavia.

i think most of the "blue states" would be welcomed into a greater canada.

the red states would devolve into much smaller areas, at war with each other and among themselves. perhaps a texas at war with a mormon homeland of greater deseret. louisiana would fragment into at least 4 mininations. acadiana and orleans may become canadian provinces.

did simeone mention oil? every teaspoon would soon be squandered in war or wasted in sabatage.

have i mentioned "distopia?"

5. In order for the red states to trade with Asia, Arizona would have to annex part of Mexico

and build a massive port. That or send it all through the Panama canal and into the Gulf.
