    I really hope you don't mind my taking the liberty to alter your posting in such a way as to improve its accuracy.

    There are several posters on this site-who- talk a mean game but seems more likely they will just sit and spout-off, not willing to risk a paper cut to do anything close to civil war or a 'surgical' assassination...

    Of course these people are so loony even the extremists on the right will have nothing to do with them, so nothing will happen.

    I am reminded of an old saying from back in the Infantry- "A bitching troop is a happy troop, it is when they grow sullen and stare back hard you need to worry"

    Bitch, piss, moan, make vague suggestions of violence.... it's all good.

    There are some on this website who spout the meaningless rants of right wing discontent. To claim the nation is long overdue the very act that will set it asunder and destroy it- but in the same sentence say it will never happen- because if someone firmly believes this but doesn't expect to see it- it just means it is empty talk.

    Then a government amok thing that has been said since the Constitution was signed, and the threshold requirement of ORGANIZED armed uprising. The very 'clear sighted' patriots are not willing to sacrifice a damn thing until someone else organizes the tawdry affair...

    Just GOT to have the too cowardly, and complacent thing but that is aimed at the very ranters against the 'over-reaching' Government. It isn't the vast majority of citizens who don't see the world in so bleak and over the top terms. It is the very 'patriots' who in our earlier days DID rise up and confront a British Crown and a newly elected President in 1861 who seem to lack the conviction and willingness to act for more than personal gain when faced with the very conditions they calim make the nation 'long over do' for an armed uprising...

    I don't lose much sleep over it...

    But you go ahead and think your 'prepping' does more than give the second rat your cheese if you want.


    Yeah. Like I said, keep believing what you see on TV.

    Repeating yourself over and over doesn't improve your position.

    I have far more experience in the realities of 'prepping' and the odds of anyone doing more than providing the second guy through the door, or more likely the guy who didn't use the door, a few shiny new toys with way too much ammo to carry.

    But do keep dreaming and thinking you have found the key to prepping... Fun fantasy while out at the local range...

    Re: Is a civil war in the U.S. imminent?

    History shows, without fail, that all nations eventually fracture and evolve in one form or another.

    And it is usually done when conquered or from a war within. However, disease and natural disaster also factor in.

    America is no different. That's why I am the only one, so far, that voted, "Yes, but not in this century."

    It's just a matter of time. How long? We can only speculate. But it will happen. By civil war? Perhaps.

    I should have voted "I don't freakin' know."

    Utter nonsense. I'll tell you one outcome, though : if you guys start blowing each other up over a lost election, I will leave. Scotland rather than Canada, though. Back to my roots, and you guys can throw all the tantrums that you want over the other Fisher Price My First Political Party's victory without me having to dodge bullets because of hyperbolic idiocy.
    Bad example. Scotlands not happy with their tyrants either.

    Independence debate: Yes, Scotland? - FT.com

    After 307 years as part of Great Britain, Scotland will soon decide whether it is time to once again go it alone. Opinion polls suggest that nationalists still fall short of the numbers needed to unpick the 1707 parliamentary union with England that lies at the heart of the UK. But nationalist and pro-union campaigners alike agree that with eight months of febrile campaigning to go, the result of Septemberís historic referendum is far from assured.

    so, are they threatening a bloody and extended civil war every time they lose an election?

    yeah, i didn't think so.

    i'm so bored with hyperbolic, impotent partisan rage that i could puke. you have a decent chance of winning in 2016 unless you run another warmonger or plutocrat. and you won't even have to get killed in a pointless civil war to do it.

    No, but neither are americans, only a few very upset ones. And Scotland has a rich history of bloody wars for independence and they actually are going to vote on independence.

    And Im not a Republican.
