    It's another time-wasting thread which will solve nothing.

    No, the political process still works. For example, we pro-2nd Amendment types flooded the inbox's of our leaders after the last push for gun control and won.

    Despite Obama's imperialistic unilateral "I've got a pen and a phone" wannabe-tyranny, I do not believe him despotic. He's not even on the "I'm the Decider" scale.

    I do not believe a civil war is imminent, it is possible, I believe our country hasn't been this divided since the last civil war... however the people have far too much to lose. Things are too nice, we are too fat and lazy and I just don't see my countrymen taking up arms. IMO, most people wouldn't pluck a hair for liberty and there isn't any serious talk of secession; Except from Texas, but... well they're Texas.
    Haymarket's "support" of the 2nd Amendment, a right he believes we never had.

    There a million reasons to start a civil war - taking away guns, blackout, dollar collapse, mass extinction event, etc. Remember what happened in New Orleans when Katrina hit?

    You confuse riot with civil war. You can think of millions of reasons why a Civil War would start but the probability will squash each one in turn. There are, and this forum has a few, who shriek on and on about secession but they are thankfully few and far between and in no way gonna lead the rebellion.

    Ummm mass extinction event.... weeeellll if it is mass extinction who is fighting whom????

    The leftovers from people will fight the leftovers from the table (food). How does that sound?

    Before you say anything, may be you can explain why Homeland Security bought tons of hollow point ammo?

    Unlikely given most of America are apathetic. There also doesn't need to be a war. It could be a peaceful seperation.

    The Homeland ammo buy has been debunked many times in here, you missed it. The 'massive' buy is really just a futures contract for UP TO a certain number of rounds per year at a set price. Many businesses forward contract like this. My local COOP, where I buy my cattle feed, does an annual contract for UP TO a certain tonnage at a set price.

    Homeland Security is an umbrella for dozens of other agencies as well as training facilities. It is quite the stretch to try and make the contracting for ammo into Civil War is close at hand.

    Again in a mass extinction event the residue survivors fighting for food is not a civil war.

    Have you watched any of the Doomsday Prepper silliness???

    I do remember what happened after Katrina.

    One of the things that did not happen was another civil war.

    Usually people give examples that support their own argument, not refute it.
