    Is the United States Nearing a Civil War?

    Do you think the United States is approaching an upcoming Civil War? Or maybe we will just become more and more divided?

    The last election saw an almost 50/50 popular vote. Plus the debates over Healthcare, Gun Control, Etc.

    A month ago I would have said no.


    Today, I'm honestly a little worried.

    Well I researched it and it doesn't seem to show a recent pattern of a narrowing popular vote.

    I'm pretty sure you guys have had always had contentious policy debates.

    I'm an outsider looking in I guess, but political discourse doesn't seem to be any more antagonistic than it was 10 years ago.

    There is a small minority of self-righteous fanatics who believe that in a given circumstance, a very large minority will start a conflict. I don't think that either those circumstances will be met, nor will people start any sort of organized movement against the US government.

    What will happen, if anything, is we're going to see individual sociopaths shoot police officers because they believe they are going to take their guns away. It's going to be sporadic, won't do a whole lot, except kill innocent people, and, hopefully, galvanize the gun owner community to deal with their radical elements.

    A few loud people have been claiming civil war is coming my whole life. It's a stupid idea that won't happen.

    Nope. The only people who I've heard seriously hypothesize civil war are those who, in their difficultly accepting that Obama won re-election and frustration with his approach to the 2nd amendment, have abandoned the political process solidified by the Constitution they apparently hold dear, think they need to kill people to get their way. In other words, adults with guns are throwing temper tantrums.
