[quote:HisEyesRopen:MV8xNzc1OTAyXzMwODA1MjYwXzZFNTM1NzND] [quote:Anonymous Coward 1526634:MV8xNzc1OTAyXzMwODAyNTY3XzY4QUZFQ0Ez] Civil war is no longer possible in the U.S. because, in a desire for "security", the citizens allowed the government to take all the power. In the days of the American Revolution, ragtag rebels were able to fight and defeat the greatest empire on Earth, ONLY because they were both on the same weaponry plateau. guns, cannons, ships Both sides had 'em, both sides could make 'em. Now, the establishment government has control over the infrastructure, over communications, they have stealth bombers, rocket propelled grenades, bunker busters and nuclear weapons. There is no way a citizen-based separatist group opposing the U.S. government, could compete, because they couldn't gather the resources to produce a comparable number of troops, guns, tanks, satellites, stealth bombers or nuclear weapons. American Civil War Pt. 2: Electric Bugaloo, is a fantasy scenario. [/quote] Yes there is a way to have a civil war..... Its for people everywhere in the USA to stay home, don't pay taxes....just have a massive sit out...Nothing runs, no trains, planes, buses, and taxis.... The country would totally shut down..... That is a civil war where nobody kills anyone, unless the government comes barging into your own home..... Sends a clear message to the lawmakers, who is in charge... [/quote]
I'm wondering what a modern day civil war in the US would look like?
How would it happen? What would happen? How would it effect the average citizen? Would we all be taking up guns and aiming them at family and friends with differing opinions?
Would the righty's kill the lefty's?
Instead of using guns would hackers attack the govn't websites, leak info and possibly hack other tactical targets such has power plants, water systems, rail.. etc.
Would some giant corporation step in and form it's own govn't?
Would there be martial law, and if so.. do you think some our own military soldiers would defect and defend whatever side they choose?
Would there be an Eeastern US and Western US or possibly even more... the Southern states, the NorthEastern States..etc.
I know it's pretty bleak but just something I've been thinking about for a while and I'm wondering what others are thinking?
Is a civil war even possible in the United States this day and age?
