    Re: Civil War

    I don't believe that we're close to a Civil War. I think the presence of 24/7 news/opinion channels has heightened our awareness of everything and, therefore, we think it's worse that it has been in the past.

    LOL. Go to your local mall and watch the potential citizen soldiers waddle out of the Waffles and More.

    Re: Civil War

    I'd say the U.S. is headed for a dramatic fall from power with a period of severe rioting, domestic terrorism and economic instability. I blame this on political pandering to ignorant demographics and the stubborn, uncompromising ideologies of both sides. When the parties can no longer ignore the big problems facing this country and are forced to alter the way the government works and the "rights" people receive, there will be some major drama. But a civil war? Probably not. New political parties? I think that is a real possibility.

    Re: Civil War

    No way are we even close to even the idea of a civil war. No matter how bad the economy is now, our country is still very strong, and we are still top dog in the world. Everyone's basic needs are met, and the government isn't oppressive in anyway. Nothing for normal people to get violent about. Let alone form their own militia, and try to take on the US military. Which would be suicide for most nations armies, let alone a rag tag militia.

    What do you think, are we on that track?

    Note: this is regardless of if you think it should or not, just what you think the chances are that it will happen.
    Revolutions happen when the govenrment ignores the overall wellbeing and frank majority-views held by it's citizens.
    Our system is set up so we can adress and 'cure' these types of issues without overthrowing our government and starting over.

    There have been many changes we've undergone - some weren't obtained safely (more so - they were obtained ot the detriment of many) but they were eventually obtained, certain rights secured for all, and our government is still intact - just different.

    No Year III is necessary for us.

    Yes a civil war...

    Would this be considered a Charioteer during the civil war 2?

    Nah, that looks like a modern Canadian armored personnel carrier with a CANSOF member doing recon.

    You got to wonder how one lets themselves get to that point.

    That's what I'm trying to figure out. I'd say we're less likely or apt to have a civil war, but more likely to see a coup or political uprising / failed revolution. Then again, looking historically our society is no where near where we were say in the 1960's or early 1970's. I think we'd need to see mass uprisings and mayhem in the streets in cities all of the U.S. before I could say anything would be close to happening. It would need to look like Greece x100.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
