Families, economies, and cultures are too unevenly distributed throughout the country for there to be any centers of revolution. People in one state are too economically and emotionally dependent on what is happening everywhere else to feel comfortable drawing a boundary and spilling blood over it.
Plus the unlikelihood of being able to preempt modern technology. Any 'authentic' rebellion would probably be discovered and broken up long before it developed into violence.

If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
No. Because libs don't own and do not know how to use guns. (Or if we are going to war, it won't last long.)
And because neither side no longer needs warfare to achieve their political ends. We no longer go to war, we go to the ballot box, though we retain the vocabulary of war, with words like "campaign," "target," "enemy," bring a gun," "reload," and we retain the symbols, like maps and crosshairs.
And there's nothing wrong with any of it.
I think its possible though I wouldn't see it happening until things get way more worse.
" Those who plan to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it" - Thomas Paine
"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have. " -Thomas Jefferson
The mere fact that this is being considered shows how bad the political environment is in this nation today. I do think we are in a period of time akin to the 1850's. How it is resolved is still an open question.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
No. There is no significant enough issue that has warranted even the threat of separation. For some reason, all it is thus far is "things are so politically charged..I wonder if we will have one again?" That is not enough to take it seriously, that is just a point of exaggeration. I don't even think we have even had a year like 1968, let alone 1859 or 1860.

"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
