    No matter what Obama does though I think the crazies will probably think its a boost to their craziness.

    No. We are a spoiled, well fed nation regardless of class and upbringing. We live in a society where technology is wasted on the ****tiest bunch of people. My phone and many can video conference over a cellular network and people to bitch. It's amazing.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    It'll take a lot more people getting broker and even stupider, if that's possible.

    No. From the begining it qualified the right. The federal government didn't add it later to infringe upon the peoples RTKBA. It was in there from the begining to describe the right. When did you drop the first 13 words, that have been there from the begining, of a 27 word single sentance admendment that I'm defending?

    Re: Is the United States Nearing a Civil War?

    I may be a nobody on these forums, but here's my take:

    The Liberals will tell you there will never be a civil war or anything like it. The Conservatives will tell you there will be a civil war in the very near future if things continue as it is. Both are wrong. I believe if the people's rights continue to be infringed upon, we will see more localized instances of violence, but it will take a lot to push a country to full-on civil war. So no, I don't expect a civil war anytime soon. Is it a possibility in the distant future? Definitely.

    And to those thinking that the American people would stand no chance against the government.... are so wrong.

    Hello. It's OK to be new, good even. I'll even ask you a question about your post. What kind of group will be running the civil war you think might happen? Many in history and those that are hapening around the world now are run at the root buy those with a fundamentalist belief. Even thoes that kept people as slaves incorperated the belief that having slaves is ok, a God given right even, were fundamentalists.

    Re: Is the United States Nearing a Civil War?

    Personally, I think civil war is closer than most people realize. Our government cannot compromise on issues like the fiscal cliff, gun control, illegal immigration and healthcare. The moderates, if there are any left, are voiceless. Anger and aggression seem to be the mode of communication. The president, unwilling to wait for congress, uses executive orders to get his way and circumvent the due process. We have a dysfunctional government in office and nothing is being done. How long will the American people be able to put up with the ineptitude of our current government?

    Don’t you see a contradiction in these two sentences in your post?

    “The president, unwilling to wait for congress, uses executive orders to get his way and circumvent the due process.”

    “Our government cannot compromise on issues like the fiscal cliff, gun control, illegal immigration and healthcare.”
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Actually I do, but congress being unable to come to an agreement doesn't give the president the right or responibility to circumvent them.
