The worship of the Gun and the fear and paranoia these people have over 'the gummint' coming to get them (we call them the black helicopter crowd) will always cause us problems but another civil war is unlikely.

    The post directly above mine is a great example. Obama is their worst fear, primarily because he's black.


    You're a racist.

    No. We are no where near a civil war or a second american revolution. No where near any of that. To say otherwise is literally insanity.

    You are so wrong about people not lasting long against the goverment. Iraq and Afghanistan proved that it can be done. Heres the difference, the people that would go up against the government have a lot more know how, an its in our backyard and the people who are in government now would be DIRECTLY targeted. Its one thing to fight a war overseas, its another to fight in and around your homes with your families at stake and targeted. That goes for both sides. Those kind of wars get into the kind of ugly you dont want to know about. One of the first things to go is normalcy. In order for the government to find those people they would have to take away civil liberty. You would not be able to come and go as you please and a whole other lot of bad things. I would not wish it on just anybody.

    1. There are plenty of wealthy liberals who voted for Obama, so no.

    2. If the rest of the 'wealthy' move away, then there are plenty of people in the US whose potential is being stifled by the insular, nepotistic environment that many of the current wealthy members of society use to keep success limited to certain groups of people. Those people will more than willing to take their place when they 'go away'.

    3. LOL at you thinking Canada and Mexico, especially Canada, would be a better place for people who disagree with Obama. LOL

    What are you referring to when you say “fundamental disagreements” that Obama has crystallized?
    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

    One more thing. There are some lines you just dont cross with out repercusion. A lot of people feel that way. Some of those lines are getting close to being crossed. I hope they are not. Nothing good will happen if they are.

    Re: Is the United States Nearing a Civil War?

    I voted maybe. When I think of the kinds of things required for one to happen I think they're highly unlikely, but there truly are people fighting for measures that I believe would be crossing the line in the sand for at least 5% of our population. That's more than it took for our first Revolution and more than enough to sway to opinions and gain the support of the tenth man.

    To me the chances of a civil war, revolution or American insurgency are about the chances of an outright ban on all firearms for all citizens, with jackbooted thugs kicking in the doors of those who refused the mandatory turn-ins in overwhelming force throughout the country. Or a complete economic collapse, no readily accessible power, food or water. I really cannot imagine either happening in America...
