Irreconcilable Differences? Maybe It’s Time for America to Break Up

This week, Liz Preza and Joshua Holland talk about Republicans showing Democrats how to really rig a primary and look at the fabulous grifting opportunities that come to those who defy lockdown orders. 
 
Then we're joined by Richard Kreitner, author of  the upcoming book, BREAK IT UP: Secession, Division, and the Secret History of America’s Imperfect Union. Kreitner looked at the history of secessionist (and devolutionist) movements, which may be the only kind of revolution available to us. A timely book given that one of our two major parties has embraced the idea of sacrificing lives to stimulate the economy.
