    A Second American Civil War Is Nothing To Look Forward To

    A Second American Civil War Is Nothing To Look Forward To

    Similarly, today, it is surprising to hear with what composure, and how glibly, members of the public, and even politicians, talk of a second American civil war. Some conservatives assume that they, having more arms and more training and practice in using them, would quickly prevail over the soy-boy Left.
    Proficiency with firearms will be no match for nuclear bombs, which Democrat Eric Swalwell has already suggested deploying domestically.
    Suppose that foreign powers intervene. In the situation of the world today, a dominant world power such as the United States cannot have a purely civil war, confined to a struggle between domestic forces. What happens in Washington has so much effect on the wider world that the wider world will try to influence what happens in Washington. Foreign interference in our elections would become foreign intervention in any armed conflict in the United States. Russia, China, Iran, North Korea in fact, nearly all of America's enemies would likely support the Left and the Democrats. A second American civil war might devolve into a conflict between American patriots and the entire rest of the world, perhaps excluding Israel. In a country like Britain, disputes over which side to support could lead to their own civil war. The best strategy to avoid the danger of a second American civil war is the thorough defeat of the Democratic Party at the ballot box. It must be such a resounding defeat as to permanently discredit and destroy the Democratic Party. (The two-party system would be preserved by the splitting of the Republican party into its two wings.) Else, the Democratic Party is likely to destroy the United States.

    A civil war is the worst thing that can happen to this nation. There will be no winners and the patrimony of its forebears is squandered and destroyed in the process.
    This is true, let's win peacefully next year by the re-election of Trump and hope a second civil war never happens in our great country. But as Trotsky once said, "you may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you," which means that you don't have to choose your enemy because it's enough for him to choose you. That is, war may force itself on us as has often happened in history, and we must be prepared to confront our country's enemies if we must.
    Having studied the American, Spanish and English and Russian civil wars, our revolution was closer to a civil war than our civil war. It will NOT be the case this time if it happens.
    A shooting civil war must be avoided and should be the absolute last resort. The idea that one can even properly identify an UN-UNIFORMED enemy absent obvious actions is dangerously nave. Who are you going to shoot? This will NOT be the Blue and the Gray of the first civil war, nor Klingons vs Humans! Every neighborhood in every city and town likely consists of people with varying political beliefs that cannot be discerned by their physical appearance, clothing (except for masked Antifa) or skin color. Exactly WHO is your enemy? How do you determine whether they are sufficiently leftist enough to be considered the enemy? Where do you draw the line? Do you wait for them to shoot at you first? Maybe you need to shoot everyone just to be safe? But seriously, every state in the Union is populated with human beings on the Right, Left and down the Middle, each to varying degrees. You cant seriously draw battle lines based on the dominant political party of a given city or state. Even the bluest state (like California) contains many conservatives who are on your side. By the way, the Swalwells' of the world advocating nuking conservative gun owners should be straitjacketed and confined to mental institutions.

    This is the Right juicing-up their base, making bogeymen out of Dems.

    Yep. I think some may have never gotten over their defeat in 1865, and are not happy with the social changes that have taken place since then. The GOP love to stoke those fears. So does Trump.
