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

    The U.S. has been at nearly perpetual war with other states, or itself, since its inception. The day that we can no longer afford to cause more wars overseas will be the day that we turn on one another and implode. The U.S. is, by political definition, a warring state.

    Foreign campaigns are essential to U.S. survival because they provide the body politic with outlets for aggressive discourse. Like any intelligent government, war is the means to keep the public satiated and distracted from any injustices that happen domestically.

    The number of restrictions on their freedoms that Americans are willing to abide in this century are partially a result of distractive wars. The day that there are not wars to fight, the people will see exactly what has been done to them and there will be an uprising.

    Sorry dude, 'serious' preppers is like military intelligence... not realistic. The fact is they are prepping for a paranoia that will not happen, and for that matter their 'preparations' are as realistic as the Maginot line, Custer's battle plans, or the Japanese defensive line in the mid Pacific. All sounded good until reality reared it's ugly head....

    There are several posters on this site-who-if they assumed power and tried to impose their idiotic views on the rest of us would justify a civil war or more likely, surgical assassinations

    Of course these people are so loony that even extremists on the left who actually can win elections won't have anything to do with them

    But you think that slow economic growth, moderate malaise, and an unemployment rate that is around 7-8% will bring about this conflict? Good grief.

    about 1.5 million (no more UE) will now discover the truth about the "welfare" that they and the GOP complained about for years. They will not even be able to WIPE THEIR ASS!

    1.5 million for the rolls of revolution.........

    The struggle is slaves vs those that work for a living and the masters of the slaves. Anti capitalism is now global. The capitalists have abandon the nation states and its
    citizens. They think they are above the nation state, they will be proven wrong...............

    Oh and our unemployment is 25% and growing. they replace US CITIZENS with foreigners every day..............
    agian, the army grows.............

    We've allowed our government to go too far amok, to the point where I do not think that anything short of a large-scale, organized, armed uprising will ever bring it back in line; but we've grown too cowardly, complacent, and ignorant to do what needs to be done.



    Interesting.

    Do you have any idea how the last civil war turned out for those who launched it?

    If not, I'll tell you- they got their butts handed to them.

    It's easy to talk about a civil war, pulling one off successfully is another matter.

    Who said a DAMN thing about believing the loony tunes on TV??? Not me!

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

    As always, the forces of Good against the forces of Evil. Who is who, it becomes clear after the victory. Since history is written by the winners.
