    I'm not exactly sold on the idea of a civil war. The system may be more resilient than we give it credit for but you are all imagining Armageddon instead of car bombs, assassinations and sundry terrorist acts. If you don't think the latter is something that couldn't happen in this atmosphere you're naive.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    After the right mood is set all that is needed is a spark. You don't know. No one does. Once the event that begins the civil war occurs it will be obvious to all that we had reached a civil war mood. Until then no one will know.
    That's correct. We already know when it actually did happen.

    This is classic metal fatigue.

    The same thing can happen with a mind. You're an example of a cracked mind. Mental or metal can be fixed.

    I kind of get how young poor people think the Dems represent them and how young rich people think that the repubs represent them. But I am really shocked at how both have been able to garner support from so much of the middle class that neither comes close to representing. I also don't get how people can continue to support lying rhetoric after the party has failed to carry through on their campaign promises after multiple election cycles in their voting lifetime.
    Only a Republican or a Democrat is going to win. That's a fact. You have a better chance reforming one of them than electing someone else.

    Historically that is true, however the level of technology we have now changes a lot of that - communications specifically.

    LOL. I will try again. See if I get closer to the approved wording. No intelligent person would ever say, "We will never fight another US Civil War."

    Can one peer into the future? Should one believe one can?
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.
