With the 2016 election coming up on Tuesday, and with the level of complete acrimony that each side has for the other, EVERYBODY seems to be talking about a potential second American Civil War.
the Chicago Tribune invokes Civil War imagry calling Trumps last big speech his Gettysburg Address.
Of course, the Far Left things this Civil War will be just another race war.
I don’t know if there will ever be a second American Civil War. If there is, I doubt it will be the 2016 election that kicks it off.
That said, if there is one, I son’t think it will look anything like the last Civil War, or any of the other civil wars going on now in third world states.
We like our electricity and TV and buying food at the grocery stores just too much. The damage to America’s economy and infrastructure from an actual civil war would be unpalatable for Americans. Not to mention, the actual issues that Americans are fighting over won’t get fixed by a civil war.
If Hillary gets elected and starts going door to door confiscating guns, how will it solve anything for me to take up arms and march into a Blue State and occupy it?
I can see some localized riots and looting occurring if Trump went hard right and shut off welfare. But we’ve already seen riots and looting in disaffected communities and that won’t organize itself into a army.
No. I don’t fear another Blue vs. Gray, or even a Red vs. Blue.
The Alabama Air National Guard isn’t going to start bombing Illinois. The Texas State Defense Force isn’t going to invade California. I don’t want to go to war with the Liberals in Palm Beach County if they make Florida go for Hillary. I doubt that even the most rabid Trump supporters do either.
If another civil war were to come to America, I think it would look a lot more like the French Revolution. What there will be is a lot of volunteers to man the firing squads that get set up on the National Mall.
So for everybody that keeps going on and on about a coming Civil War… shut up. Despite all your goading, Americans are not going to start killing each other en masse. We’re not going to start The Purge, at most, we’re just going to drain the swamp.
