A second civil war is always a very really possibility. As the country continues to become more and more divided secession is more and more likely to occur. The similarities between what happened in the 1850s to 1860 are extremely similar to what is occurring right now. History is repeating itself as the states have different beliefs such as though for a strong federal government and those who want it weaker for stronger states.

A realistic view of US civil war would likely be this:

Side One:
Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, California, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, New Jersey, Delaware, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, and Washington D.C.

VS

Side Two:
Alaska, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, and West Virginia.

States that could join either side:
Nevada, Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, and Virginia.

Side two would have advantage in food(Nearly all the farm grown food), Nuclear weapons(would have nearly 100% of them), oil(Again almost all the oil and shale), and likely most of the US military as the vast majority of them come from the states on side 2. Most gun owners are also located in side 2. Side 1 I honestly can't think of any advantage they would have other than population and most of the bankers.

Nope, not at all. Just a factual view. Obama won Florida twice and Allen West was disposed of after one controversial and unproductive term. Florida is a microcosm of America. It is a melting pot. It is not a blue state or a red state. I'm confident that most of the residents of Florida would agree with that.

<quoted text>Thanks to this Obama Zombie dummy, We are entering the end of our democracy. It is well known that democracies die when more than half of the population is on the public dole, and start voting themselves benefits without working for them. As Romney said, we are at 47% who don't pay taxes, but do vote themselves all the benefits they can think of. The Hollywood Crowd and Main Stream Media (MSLSD, ABC, NBC, CBS) who helped Obama get elected twice think it's great! Let them be the first give up most of their money for their cause! So, where do we go from here. Usually, post democratic societies fall into socialism, a dictatorship and or fascism. A good example of this is Senate Majority leader Harry Reid. Reid wants to stop any and all opposition. Really?? That's exactly what socialist and dictatorships do! Either way, our world is changing: more taxes, more government control of our economy, less economic freedom, more taxes, and less choice in medical and other areas of our lives. Our economy starts looking more like Europe ( Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Italy). We will no longer have the financial strength to afford things like a strong military, a space program and good medical care and I could go on and on. You can move somewhere else, but most of the world is in the same or worse condition. Regardless of what happens, half of the population who voted for the status quo are going to get what they deserve. Unfortunately, the rest of us may have to suffer because of their ignorance!
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."

Yep. You'd think he'd be used getting booted to the curb. He's having such a hissy fit this time that they may have to use a longer hook to pull his head out of his a$$ so he can find the exit door. That's probably why he's whining, he never saw himself losing.

Why is he a loser? Are you a racist?????
Besides the fact that he lost the election, which certainly makes him a loser, he is a really horrible human being.
Documented lying i.e. ads saying Murphy had voted against important bills and laws when Murphy was NOT a member of Congress at the time and therefore was not involved in any votes of that sort. He just assumed that the voters were too ignorant to realize what he was saying. He was wrong.
Violent bullying i.e. the shooting-near-a-prisoner's-hea d issue that got him kicked out of the military before he had planned to retire. He figured it was a noble & justified act of war. He was wrong and got booted for it.
Total disdain for women i.e. ads saying women figuratively (I assume)castrate men and repress their opinions and needs and wants and need to learn their place.
He's a pig. He is a despicable human being. He lack of enough votes in this election are because of the kind of person his is and nothing else.
Georgia wants him. He ought to go where's he accepted. Most people in Florida now realize what a POS he is.

An example of non citizen voter fraud-in Florida

&fe ature=related

Problem seems to be moter voter laws that allow registration at the time drivers license is obtained. Elections officials can't verify citizenship unless it's an individual voter complaint.

I hate big brother but couldn't they submit names for a citizenship check and/or background checks on basic stuff including criminal.
