Yes, in the near future
Yes, but not in the next 10 years
Yea, but not in this century
I don't know
"you're better off on Stormfront discussing how evil brown men are taking innocent white flowers." Infinite Chaos
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.
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...

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
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...
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."
It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"
Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
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.
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.
