First you'll lose your job. Then you'll find out there's no unemployment or food stamps cause it was all wasted on stimulus and the IMF. Then you'll spend your last buck on a bag of Skittles. And then you lose it and go outside looking for payback......

United we Stand, Divided we Fall, right?

So I guess it's pretty much impossible today?


What if a group of states declared their secession from the United States and joined together? I can see something like this possibly happening with the states becoming more and more unique from one another with laws and the people living within them.

it'll be more of a revolution than a civil war.

People are already waking up to the fact that, hey, wait a minute, we're not each others enemy!... It sucks for all of us. LOT'S of people I talk to see right through all this crap, the ones that don't, they'll be first to go... fine.

Rethuglicans and Democrats are mixed in all over geographically, unlike the Civil War, where there was a pretty sharp division between North and South. Also, there is no overweening issue such as slavery infuriating people.
Ain't happening anytime soon.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10285242


The division is now ideological. Not based on a singular issue or policy. It's between 3 and 5 opposing view points and 3 of those are mutually exclusive to each other.

1. The Socialist/Fascist (National Socialist, Communist, Progressive Democrats, Neo-Cons) Supreme authority of the State in the lives of its citizens, little to no deviation from the centrally planned guidelines. Maximum control over society, with limited allowance for individual choice in social or economic matters.

2. The Loyalists (Left). Support the semi-omnipotent power of a central authority to secure the basic needs of citizens at any and all cost.

3. The Moderates (Centrist). Support limited power of the State, with the sway of power held bending towards authority.

4. The Loyalists (Right) Support the semi-omnipotent power of a central authority to secure the property and wealth of its citizens, whatever the cost.

5. The Libertarians (AnCap, Sovereign and others) Support individual Liberty and Freedom, with little or no authority given to the State. Little to no 'safety net' or regulation of personal decisions. The State is relegated to matters of international policy with a bent towards non-interventionism and isolationism.


Now most people will fall somewhere between these stereotypes. That's a given. The problem is, right now you've got more and more people that are swinging to the extremes. Myself included.

When it comes to a Central Government this is the breakdown:
#1 and #5 are mutually exclusive. #3 can cohabitate with #2 and #4 but will not survive in #1 and #5's environments. Nor will #2 survive #4 or vice versa. And God help anyone from #2, #3 or #4 get caught under #1 or #5 against their will.

I'm well aware of the false left/right paradigm but I used that as an example in the degrees above. It's easier to read than a web would have been.

Since we are less and less willing to compromise our ideals, especially when the perceived destruction of our respective ways of life is omnipresent, the chance for an escalation of violence to take place is conceivable, if not down right inevitable.

Take me for example. I used to fall somewhere between #1 and #2. Now I'm staunchly in the #5 category. I don't see a way to exist living under the rule of #1, #2, #3 or #4. Why don't I? 'Cause no matter what you've got some politician stealing your labor while pointing a rifle at your face. See there, that's called tyranny where I'm from. So how in the Hell am I supposed to make a living? If every where I turn I'm losing my labor to people who continuously seek to take more and more of it, and losing the freedom of choice in all things that don't conform to what the State thinks is best for me, what makes it acceptable to exist under a system that has proven itself to be antagonistic towards my very existence?

That's just my view point. The opposite holds true for many as well, and that's fine. We'll see whose side has more...heart, if you will. And then, you've got the huge middle section that thinks that all of us on the Fringe are fucking nutz and should be locked away.

America was a wonderful experiment. It was a truly great nation, but the ravages of corruption and apathy have weakened her to the point of collapse. The divisions among it's citizens will not be assuaged by the ballot box, for no matter who wins, the rest get screwed out of something. Couple that (the political) with the escalation in racial tension and you have yourselves a 21st century Yugoslavia. Without the national memory of widespread violence, many will fail to see the warning signs until it's too late.

At this point, Balkanization is inevitable. There's too much damage done to the connective tissue, and not enough will to heal whats broken.

I would like nothing more than to believe that an answer to our predicament will appear. However, I'm not naive enough to believe that pretty words and appeasement will do anything more than postpone the coming conflagration.

War is coming, like it or not. Just remember: Even in War there is Honor. Let's try not to remake the Hutus V. Tutsis here, ok?

(and the disclaimer: I, the author, neither endorse, nor consent to the use of violence to affect political change. Nor would I knowingly agree to, nor participate, in said violence for any other reason except that which is defined as 'Legal and Lawful Defense of Self' pursuant to the pertaining Federal, State and Local laws, codes, and statutes.

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?

Probably so, with GMO foods, and bad air, bad environment, bad water, the population is too drugged and comatose. And any new Technology (War/Military/Surveillance/Crowd/Population/Sheeple Masses Control) "Uncle Scam/Uncle Sham w/Uncle Boris" takes from inventors, if it can be used in any way, but I do believe "TPTB" is getting tired of supporting "Useless Eaters" and "Welfare/Entitlement Crap", as it has gotten to the "breaking point" with both "Projects/Ghettos/Hoods" and "Prisons". And that was 9/11 as to be a breaking point with the "Support" of such things as Prisons/Entitlement/Welfare People, that have literally busted and broke the System.

Now its time for "TPTB" to start cleaning up the mess, and move towards a more "Technological Society", instead of wasting Moneys (Tax) on useless Social Programs.

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.

I think you guys are really talking about something else...

LOL
 Quoting: World Traveler


civil war - A war between citizens of the same country.

revolution - A forcible overthrow of a government or social order for a new system.
(in Marxism) The class struggle that is expected to lead to political change and the triumph of communism.

So by definition, what we are all discussing can be one or the other, or a combo of both depending on how it plays out.

Nice attempt at being a forum grammar Nazi though.

What a clusterfuck its going to be.

You'll have 99 percenters killing the 1 percent elite.

Republicans and democrats killing each other.

And on the side there will be a race war.

Just sitting here and thinkin....What a question. Wow! If America decays into a cival war, it wont end with it being a racial issue. It could possibly start out that way, you can see that something like this is being nursed and nudged along by the recient media coverage over the last several weeks. Americans, of all races and creeds will eventually wake up to what is happening to us all in the collective.We will see as citizens, as Americans, that it's our government, the NWO group that are using isolated incidents and covering them with a fervor not seen since the days of the Cold War with Russia. It's not Russia any more, it's each other. We are all our own worst enemies. The PTB are trying to divide us as a nation. Trying to sever our common bond, and in so doing, open the way for a total dictatorship, helmed by the bankers, the self appointed elite, and the big money. They want us fighting, rioting, causing a new way of life to be introduced. They want CHANGE. Have you heard that term before? They will push, and deceive, lie, twist the facts, and spread disinformation to fit their agenda. Then comes Martial Law. When it's put into place, and you are now carrying your new NATIONAL ID, traveling to where you are allowed to, buying what they let you have, people will start to wake up.Those days are coming. We gotta wake up NOW. propoganda

Civil War? How about complete societal collapse?

Imagine a country without welfare, no value in currency, incapable of growing or manufacturing anything.

No television, no running water, no electricity.

No gas in your car, no communication from facebook, twitter, the mail services; nothing.

Imagine your life without a fire department, a police department, a transportation department, etc.

This isn't a Civil War we will be fighting, it will be a Survival War.

How's your aim? Got any food stores? Have anything to barter? Do you have seeds and know how to garden? Do you have books to educate your fellow man with? Would you be willing to share?

I can imagine life without a "transportation dept, police dept" and it looks pretty good to me.

It wouldn't be long before entrepreurs would step in to cover all the bases. Cheaper and more efficient too.

Has anyone read The Nine Nations of North America? [link to www.garreau.com]

The funny thing is our resources aren't running out. They're just jacking up the prices and laughing all the way to the bank when they post their tens of billions in profits. People should be infuriated, but they're not. Change is tough and we all want it to be like it was, when we could afford houses, cars, and education. Now we can barely afford food.

Media corporations have successfully sidetracked us with football, NASCAR, sex, alcohol, fast food, and celebrity culture. We're so caught up in this whirlwind of media campaign blitzes that we don't even know what's real anymore. Most people in this country value a bag of Doritos more than the plants that provide them oxygen. So many people (not everyone!) have lost what's important.

I don't have all the answers of how to fix this mess we're in, but there needs to be an overhaul of the distribution of wealth. It's not just about the dollar and coin, paper and metal. Working hard doesn't get you shit anymore, though they've always pounded that into our brains; work hard and you'll "make it." We need to find a balance where everyone can contribute and receive, give and take in a free and balanced way. I'm not talking welfare or handouts either.

Something's gonna give and we're about to smack into the brick wall.
 Quoting: Vermonster


You don't have to be "sidetracked" by the things you cite. You certainly don't have any answers if all you can think of is to "redistribute wealth". It might have escaped your notice but Lenin, stalin, mao and others used that to create hell.
