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.<quoted text>Election's over....you can get a life now....
A realistic view of US civil war would likely be this:
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.
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.
