Give Them City States

The Right is Exit, the Left is Entry.
The Right can't exit because it is too large geographically.
The Left hates exit.
The Left is sufficiently triggered by autonomous zones, let alone full secession:
The Silicon Valley Secessionist Clarifies His Batshit Insane Plan
Silicon Valley is relatively leftist.
SV is also willing to secede because of Shenzhen.
SV would likely be a success, and more left than America.
The Right could sell SV secession as an economic story,
While SV sells it as Leftist (immigration).
A success story invites copycats.
The incremental path to self-determination is to drive the Left out.
The Left has high time preference and likes money.
Newt Gingrich had low time preference.
He plotted the House takeover in the 1980s.
In the early 1990s, Congress reformed campaign finance.
Congressmen could no longer tap campaign funds for personal use after the 1992 election.
62 retired ahead of the law taking effect.
Republicans took Congress in 1994.
Start early.
Act incrementally.
Create a down slope.
Make it enticing for your enemy to slide out the door.
