    Re: Is the United States Nearing a Civil War?

    yes US politics is becoming more polarized - there are a number of studies which have documented this.

    no, its not Obama's fault. it was already happening.

    no, there won't be a civil war anytime soon ... but I wouldn't like to be in such a politically divided nation with so many people suffering economically, with such poor social capital and with so many people armed to the teeth.

    its not war you have to worry about. its random nutters who believe they have an axe to grind and who have easy access to weapons.
    Every political good carried to the extreme must be productive of evil.

    No, it would take a whole lot more than anything that's gone on lately to cause another civil war.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Sorry, my administrative assistant couldn't make it here today.

    My point is that the citizenry of Germany leading up to the take over by Hitler was giving away rights and finally it had slid to the point that there were no rights at all.

    When the problems to be addressed grow beyond the means of the people to address them, they seek help from the places they suppose they can find it. Now, as then, the problems are growing so great that the populace will willingly give away all of their rights just to be able to eat.

    America is facing social and racial strife never before experienced in this country. The Hispanics are already attacking Blacks.
    The most patriotic position is to do everything legally possible to speed the collapse of our our clapped-out pandering
    multicultural system.

    Full auto? Thats been on the books for years. So called assault rifles,really Semi automatics.High Capacity ninety rounder mags?Who needs these for self-defense or hunting?

    I have NEVER heard any talk about repealing my,and your conceal carry rights; maybe I move in different circle than you do though.



    The Catholic Church has never condoned the use of contraception and defines this as murder and therefore a direct violation of the word of God. Doesn't matter if it makes sense. That is their teaching. Obama has demanded that they pay for the practice. That's the first amendment.

    The second Amendment as passed by the Congress:
    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

    This is an add on to the document that defines powers and their division between the Federal Government and the States. There is little chance that the Founders who were were pretty particular in what words they used and when, would use this language if they were not discussing the relationship of the States to the Union. The notion of the state being a separate nation did exist at that time and the notion that the various states would retain a high degree of autonomy was one of the purposes of the document.

    The Assault weapon ban to which you refer has passed its sunset already, 2004.The purpose of the Second Amendment is not to protect hunters from Ducks. It's to protect citizens from the government.

    Do you agree then, lacking any objection, that the limitations set forth by the Enumerated Powers and the separation of power defined in Article One are already gone?

    I appreciate that. Having never owned a gun of any type, i will need to be trained on how to use it without killing myself. That would be a bad thing.

    I remember the stories of the folks in new Orleans after Katrina using rifles to keep looters out of their neighborhoods. Perched on rooftops with rifles challenging anyone who came through the entries.

    I think I will need a shot gun type of thing like you show above, a rifle, and a hand gun with stopping power.

    Two points you make - One: You apparently know a bunch of folks suffering from paranoia

    and

    Two: If you "dont quite care what the government does" then it really doesn't matter in which nation you choose to live - does it?
