Nothing you said sounded paranoid at all. That guy is juvenile. The simplest difference between a coup and a civil war is this. A coup is usually to overthrow a government. A civil war is to overthrow an opposing party within your own country. The civil war that comes is between (republicans/wealthy/corporati ons) versus (40% Christians/democrats/common man) there will be no borders, no uniforms......URBAN CIVIL WAR. Watch the video. In my opinion, it's coming. We will begin to kill each other. I blame Fox News. They are owned by an Austarilian 80 year old criminal billionairre. He uses His media to do the bidding of the wealthy and wall street and corporations. Their many is 100% safe in the event of a war. Hell, they make money. Romneys money isn't even in a America. Even now FOX NEWS is saying that the TAKERS are you and me. Just people who are working our lives away. And I guess we are taking from THE MAKERS who build absolutely nothing but their wealth. Look at it this way. I build something in America and you buy it in America. Who makes the money? Walmart. They made the gulf of it. Why? Because they own republican politicians , that's why. Did you know that 6 members of the Walton family have as much money as 193 million Americans....????? They want America to be the ultra rich (about 2000 people) and the helplessly poor (about 316,000,000) how can they archive thAt? Republican politicians.
You really need to stop watching Faux news. They're making you bat-shit crazy.

With God as my witness, I can see bloodshed coming in waves in less than 5 years. If you talk to Americans on both sides, they seem willing to die and kill other Americans. Are we headed for war? I think so. Do you?
And if so, do you think that there is any wAy to seperate so that we don't go to war?
We are no longer together. We are hopelessly opposed. Only two things can happen at that point. SEPERATION OR WAR.
i think you are far too neurotic and paranoid to be right. just cover your walls with more tinfoil and turn on the FAUX/CONN media.

Uneducated blaming and stupidity don't fix anything...nobody is buying any more bullets than what is easily explainable and needed for a rational purpose. Stop feeding into the Faux news, internet hype and conspiracy theories. Just like when Obama was going to take all the guns when he got into office and all the idiots went out and stocked up on ammo...well 4 yrs has passed and nothing happened...go figure.
place blame where its due. The sooner that monkey is out of the white house the better. Not that really matters though. Seems the prez is mostly just a p.r. guy for the gov.

There is no need to call president obama a "Monkey". Call him communist, or socialist fine but don't use racial slurs. The fact that he is half black means absolutely nothing. I would vote for a conservative black man if his record shows that he's capable of running the country. However to be fair, the liberals called George Bush names and made fun of personal traits that had nothing to do with his ability to govern. In school they're calling this bullying and there is zero tolerance for it. So whether it's racism or some other form of hate evoking criticism, leave it out of your argument. It doesn't add anything and it takes away your credibility.

Most criticisms in politics are "hate-evoking" because unfortunately that's what stirs up the uneducated masses. Even better if it's a minority because you can then throw the ignorant racists in there. Bush's criticisms had nothing to with race (of course not, he's a rich white man), they had to do with him coming off as an idiot and, of course, lying to the American people regarding starting the war in Iraq. That will be his legacy.

What you all are describing is very much like the fighting that went on for years between the Protestants and Catholics in Ireland. Personally, I believe that if there ever is an attempted coup, it would be brought on by those whacked out, right wing, paramilitary groups.

Well folks you can debate and argue all you want, but look at facts. Half of our population even with the one's working for minimum wage are now below poverty level. Retiree's are seeing their retirement pay cut and insurance costs soaring. Cities that depended on Federal Government Grants to operate, are now on their own. The Government is not only broke but in debt so far it will never pay it's way out. The rich are moving money out of this country. They have moved all the jobs out of the country so they can make more money. Everybody wants help, but the middle class has dissapeared. We have a Presidental Candidate who has refused to tell how much he paid last year in taxes. Our Senators and Congressmen have had big raises for years and have unreal retirement and health care.
Take a look at a map from the 1940's and then one from today. There are few countries that have not overthrown their rulers and or forms of government. Even Russia that got almost like we are now revolted. Why should we be the exception ? When people cannot feed themselves or their children, cannot afford a roof over their heads or get medical treatment, are they going to sit by quietly and die ?? I don't think so. The small protests against Wall Street were made light of but we have to remember a flood starts with a single drop of rain. Life as we have known it will never exist again. I for one can only see it getting worse.

I wish it weren't true, but almost every word that you said is true. It's the wealthy who have formed an alliance. Regular people can't imagine that someone with that much money would want more. They assume that their greed has limits. IT DOES NOT. Romney has a nice smile and absolutely RUTHLESS TACTICS. The war will be against EACH OTHER and the GOVT. they want us to wound ourselves to further the divide and strengthen them. Just like you said. Their money's overseas. Their aim is to totally designate America . They won't lose a nickel. Then they will put into place Marshall law. Look. They can't take over 325 million people without using us against each other. HENCE FOX NEWS. Hell, even McDonalds has them on. Corporations, wall street , the evil evil Koch Brothers and maybe even some on the left are in on it. It's in the book of Revelation. They hooked the Christians with Abortion, and the homophobes with gay marraige, and the self fucked up with Food stamps....and then there's just the stupid that you can tell anything to....the war will be us killing each other off....Makers Vs Takers is on FOX NEWS. It wants us to kill each other. It's real, it's on and it's soon. Get a gun !,

Hey you're the nut cases that brought this onto aa public website. So since imm part of the public, I have as much right to tell give my opinion of you as you do of me. The truth is, just because the "national media" is also speculating about it doesn't mean it will happen. It's silly speculation. And I find it amusing that you and your nail biting buddies are so serious about it. So take your Prozac and get some rest.

After thinking more about it let me also say, "If there is a civil war as a result to all these so called symptoms you can see with your prophetical vision." It will be partly because of paranoid people like yourself spreading the paranoia. Coming on a public website to spread fear and stir panic. You're no better than the Texas judge who in a speech called for people to arm themselves against a Obama orchestrated UN troop invasion. http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/23/us/texas-judge-...
Even CNN national news called him nuts. My point is if you keep pushing you may just get what you want. You want to be right so bad that you will shout out the facts until it becomes a self fulfilling prophesy. It's like throwing lit matches at a keg of gun powder to prove it will blow up.

I say yes it is possible to cause a civil war, but if there are also peaceful solutions to the turmoil and we as Americans will find them.

It seems this country is already in a civil war, it's just being fought with deception, manipulation, and pen and paper instead of guns.

The original post had no opinion in it. It's was a question and it was backed up by a worldwide broadcast on Fox News. This isn't opinion. Many, and some of them experts, say that we headed toward KILLING EACH other. If you want to stick your head in the sand, or simply insult the poster, I don't know what good that does. I bet you aren't Trolling when you're pinned in behind a tree with people shooting at you.

If you think that DIVIDE AND CONQUER isn't real, then you know nothing of military actions. FOX NEWS has theis country so divided that are are months away from bloodshed.

Call it paranoid. Then FOX NEWS is the source of that too.

The wealthy want unto kill each other off. Pro lifers will likely be the first to shoot. It's crazy !,

Well there isn't anything wrong with my reading comprehension skills. But I reread the original post just to be certain. You should too. Here's what I found. The only questions was a rhetorical question. Which is basically a question that is answered either before or after the question. You said there was no opinion in it, and you went on to say it was backed up by a worldwide broadcast on Fox News. Well I read and reread and there was no mention of Fox News. Either way, who is these so called experts? And how do you become an expert on how to start a civil war. Granted there is some polar opposite veiw points politically in this nation, but neither side is poised to start shooting. I'm not making fun when I say this, turn off Fox News, and CNN, stay off the internet. You're getting way too worked up.
Pro Lifers??? Are you serious? It's not crazy, YOU ARE!

Kinda off topic, maybe, but keep in mind the constitution calls for the right to bear arms {to form a militia}. Now, I'm not sure how that has become a right to bear arms as an individual, but I think it is a right. But just try to form a militia! With the Feds swarming, how could a group actually defend themselves, let alone declare a civil war? Most people are too wrapped up in trying to get by than to revolt. It would be great if the citizens just refused to support corporate greed, but who's going to do that, being that they call every shot? And how? Let's face it, it's a no win situation. Might as well just accept it.

Hopefully when/if Mitt Rommney is elected president he will more closely follow the Constitution and restore this country to the Constitutional Republic that the Founding Fathers intended. Obama has been a pathetic joke of a President. He can't even get congress to pass his budget.
