Nothing is impossible, but I would not bet on a Civil War in the US. We're all too fat and happy to take a crap in our Wheaties.
We’ve been pushed far enough that’s for sure.

Well we have the presidency now so I guess we’ll win.

Anything is possible, but I don't see angry fat hillbillies in empty states as much of a threat in a direct confrontation. They sure can do internet threats and backwoods militia marches though.

Libertarian - Right
there are memes out there of armed militias looking like beer drinking frat boys vs the well trained military, it would be fun to watch though :cool:

If your idea of fun is watching people being killed you would really have loved the Roman circuses. I can picture you cheering on the Christian-eating lions.

It all depends on what side the president is on. So for the sake of the world never elect another Republican.

Not a chance. The creeps with guns hope so. Of course they would; in their fantasy they get to beat down all those unarmed libruls. Creeps.

What would a civil war entail today? Not Bubba and Jim-Bob driving their pickups down to a yoga studio to rape a few vegan chicks. It would mean factions of the military splintering and going at each other with tanks and jets. Cities destroyed, refugees, the worst messes of failed states.

Did the MAGA creeps think that through? Nahh they probably thought it would be just their fat neckbeard asses lining up and shooting a few minorities at the mall and knocking off at five for a barbecue.

F***in' chumps.

Actually we are in one now. This one isn't a shooting war. It is a battle for the future of America. The lines are drawn. The sides are locked in. This one will be fought in the halls of congress and the courts of this land.

Remains to be seen if America becomes

a regressive land ruled by the elite with the serfs to do their bidding.

Or

The land of the free and the home of the brave. A land ruled by "We the People"

I can't see the US recovering from the ideological differences and the unpayable debts which, unbelievably, are being encouraged by the American people. The beginning of the end began when BHO won a second term.


Most of those on the right who have the ideological difference are susceptible to the lifespan limit.

I like the idea of "woke" mall rats and inner city gang bangers going up against country boys who get up at 2 AM in the morning, walk a mile in the dark, climb a tree, and wait 3 hours in 30 degree weather waiting to kill something that knows that environment far better than mall rats and gangbangers do.

Do you think these mall rats and inner city gang bangers are going to go out to the woods to fight this imaginary civil war? What's bubba gonna do when the UPS truck don't show up?

The far leftist no

They would be the first to die(Hypothetical)
While there are certainly more Republicans or right leaning people who own guns, those on the left still own guns as well.

One of the failures in mindsets that view their side as good and the other as bad is this belief that everyone who identifies as the other side must believe the same way, only have one viewpoint on any issue. It simply isn't true.

And no, they wouldn't likely be "the first to die" because those liberals who own guns likely have more respect for why they own them than many conservatives who own them. Additionally, there would be many other factors that would matter in why a Civil War started. I highly doubt that my inlaws and/or husband would kill me if Civil War broke out.

it melts and the water rises, BUT climate change deniers are saying that it is all a hoax when you compare that to glaciers melting.

like so many others, Luther is full of bluster, but I bet he wasn't at the Capitol on Jan. 6 and would be the first to let someone else fight the civil war for him.

LMAO... Is this based on your vast experience interacting with far leftists? What makes you think "leftists" won't be taking guns and ammunition from the bubbas?

Do you know what happens when you melt a glacier in a relatively warmer body of water, especially one with a current?

he misses the point that if there is a civil war, the military would step in and deal with whoever is attempting another civil war, it would not be leftists against rightists, it would family against family, and militias against the military and the result of that would not be pretty.

There isn't going to be a civil war... As the Jan 6th uprising demonstrates, even the most ardent supporters of this kind of stuff whine like a two year old when the long term consequences start happening... Anyone who participates in something like this has to consider that its a a win or die endeavor. Fail and the long term consequences will haunt them for the rest of their lives.
