Do you think that another Civil War is possible in the U.S.A.?

If so, why, how would the sides line up (geographic and social), what would the critical issues be, and what might start it?

Yes most deffinetly. Our govt wants millions of illegals legal but make law abiding gun owners criminals! We cant just keep taking this. Gun bans confiscation arent silving crime they are simply the way to humble the masses. If we stand together we can survive as a free nation!!

Man the government is too powerful and well organized the people don't have a chance. I know we will have one soon history always repeat it self. The only thing I can tell everyone is to get right with God and put it all in his powerful hands that's if you have faith in him.

I hope you traitors and your seditionist ways get put down like the last illegal Southern racist rebellion your ancestors tried. Only this time instead of making nice they need to make examples of you for daring to use violence and intimidation to force your ways upon others when you have ample legal, just, and peaceful ways to express your displeasure and issues with the government.
How would anyone rational think revolt is the next step in what is only a minor inconvenience to thier political will? Instead use your own power at the ballot and accept the will of others in a Democracy. Talk of revolution while you still enjoy such freedom (and most of all the luxury your fore bearers did not have) is at least short sighted and misguided foolishness and at most treason that should be punished as such.

Mouse fight for your freedoms, then come and tell me how to fight for mine. Let me put you in the streets of Baghdad or downtown Kabul, how about Siagon. OH, I forget you want to put others down because they are Christians and have and will fight for thier freedoms. When your president, and his band of liars, and cheats follows the rules then the rest of us will stand down. There has never been a more corrupt government than we have now. When you can back your talk with other than saracasm and putting someone else down because they don't believe in corruption then you have the right and freedom to speak.

The difference between the Civil War and a potential redux are the justifications. At the end of the day, states rights was a legacy you wanted to fight for, that's a respectable position. This country had been divided over the rights of states since the federalist/anti-federalist states.

A civil war today would be because the other side is pissed they lost. They have no real reason to hate Obama other than this brainwashed nonsense they hear over the news.

I'm disappointed in you, Mouse. You are usually pretty observant and show some thought. Now you are coming across like Black Caser or however the hell he misspells it.

I think this is some kind of a serious question from somebody dumb enough to think they'll find thinking people on topix to answer it. It is a serious question too. The West Point terrorism study center put out a report a couple of weeks ago about the potential for something to happen here. It won't be north south or white black but some kind of formless urban terrorism by a lot of little nutcase groups that share a nebulous ideology that is drawn from Christian fundamentalism, white supremacists, Libertarian anarchists, and a whole range of anti-government paranoia.

One thing bothers me. Will US troops kill fellow americans? Other than that you are faced with liberal iletists and the gimmee crowd that voted this sick f... into power. I woudnt even need "gasp" 30rd mags. Come for us, we are here and will defend our freedom. Thanks for the forum.

So you want to put me in a "reeducation camp"? How very fascist of you. Just like the North Koreans, Russians, Chinese, and Nazis! You keep good company, they waved the flag and told everyone they were defending the people just like you. Now I see why you want to overthrow the government, you want to force everyone to believe in your dogma and fanaticism.

This fascist wants me to be forced to believe in his religion and wants to take away my right to speak. Thanks, I wasn't using that 1st Amendment anyways.

Mouse is a perfect example of a liberal. He resorts to name calling hate speech to accuse me of doing so .

I am not the one who said they were going to throw someone into a reeducation camp. I think my opinion is valid and based on exactly the very words you yourself used. So why are you offended? I thought you would be proud of your desire to imprison and brainwash me.
But you are better than name calling and insults right? I mean I should know a real compliment and honest contention of debate like "your moms basement for you and all other snivally wimps!" when I see it!

The US congress has been at war with you for years. Its funny how no one calls it that. But before you engage in a civil conflict try withholding your federal dollars. Without tax revenue congress will have to listen to you. Why is it no one has mentioned that? Before you engage in a bloody conflict try every other thing because the blood in the streets will be Americans.

Last week Military busses were found with signs in them saying "under marshall law". I'm assuming most of you know what that means. Those signs are going to be put up accross america. Also, why else do you think the government is trying to take away weapons from the ppl? Because the government knows the ppl might revolt soon. I bet you all in 6 months, America is going to change.
