There has been lots of ink and bitching about the divisions in the country and the politics behind it.
Then there are all those articles and stuff about the amounts of guns that are flying around this nation.
Put two and two together and we get a coming civil war that could very well end in violence.
I also have made several posts about the possibility of all out civil war….I am hoping that all those predictions are wrong…..
There are those that down play the possibility of a coming civil war…..this is one of those articles…..
A pattern emerged in the hours after the FBI lawfully searched the Florida home of the former president. Indeed, it was deeply familiar.
It goes something like this.
When Bad Thing X happens to Donald Trump – and, given who we’re talking about, there’s always a Bad Thing X – it’s actually Good Thing Y, because it’ll arouse the resentments of his supporters. It doesn’t matter what Bad Thing X is. What matters, for the purposes of propaganda, is that this pattern is used at Trump’s convenience. And, given who we’re talking about, that convenience has come in handy.
But what started as convenience, effective though it may have been, has evolved into a habit, which has evolved into a tic, which has evolved into a tell. Whenever someone says Bad Thing X is actually Good Thing Y, we can have confidence that it’s no such thing.
A new civil war?
After the FBI searched the former president’s home for secret government documents that, according to the Wall Street Journal, he would not surrender voluntarily, online chatter among his supporters tsunamied, according to Vice News, into calls for a new civil war.
All this could happen before or after the GOP plan to change the Constitution…..(this is possible and very possible)……
If you think the Supreme Court overturning abortion rights in this country was radical and shocking, you ain’t seen nothing yet. There was a convention you should know about this past weekend in Denver, funded by some of the wealthiest men and foundations in America, that has received altogether too little publicity.
Imagine if most public schools in the country closed and were replaced by for-profit charter and private academies — often racially segregated and only serving families who could afford their tuition — because the Constitution required federal compulsory education laws and federal funding for education (at all levels) to end.
Imagine if the U.S. Constitution required the EPA, FDA, USDA, DOT, Department of Education, and Department of Labor to shut down. All union protections are dead, there are no more federal workplace safety standards, and even child-labor laws are struck down, along with the national minimum wage and the income tax, both individual and corporate.
Imagine that the Constitution makes it illegal for the federal government to protect you from big polluters, big banks, and even big food and pharma—all are free to rip you off or poison you all they want, and your only remedy is in state courts and legislatures, because the Constitution prevents Congress from doing anything about any of it. The federal government can no longer even enforce voting or civil rights laws.
The mid-terms will decide the future of this country….
You decide what is best for this nation.

While I also have grave concerns about what it being pushed by a small fringe on the right, I also see that this small fringe is frightening the very large “middle” that is revolted by the antics of the lunatics at the fringes of both sides….and hope this “common sense” will reject the polarization that has formed around the edges…we will see…
I want to have hope but I just cannot see it any time soon. Be well chuq
Being a Veteran of the U.S. Military who loves America, I would like to remind the radical right wing traitors that the conservatives are not the only ones who have second amendment rights and so they should shut their mouths about a coming civil war unless they are willing to face the facts and the consequences of their war mongering bull shit.
When you have SCOTUS in your corner you can do whatever you like with impunity. chuq
It sounds like you are describing a disease of the groin …LOL
It is an irritant…LOL chuq
China and Russia are making war against the US every hour of every day. There is no republican war mongering. It is republican defense mongering and security mongering.
