Do you believe its needed or possible for a second American civil war?

  • Possible? Sure, History always repeats.

    Alot of people believe the Fed is out of control. Fading civil rights, especially privacy, no knock warrants, Militarization of police and federal departments, NSA spying on the whole country, not to mention the buying and selling of Federal government policy, etc. Many states are passing laws to keep federal laws and regulations out of the state. Logical next step to that is secession.... History shows that the Fed reacts violently to rejection. The real question is when the states secede what should the Fed reaction be?

  • I'm 50/50 on it being possible, but I do believe it might be necessary.

    This is a lazy, self centered, and divided generation... So I seriously doubt that a civil war would ever happen (or be successful) in this country any time soon. I do think that we need one though, there is so much wrong with this country and it needs fixed quick before it is beyond repair.

  • Its always possible, but will it happen is questionable.

    First off, people would probably be hesitant or afraid to declare war on others, especially without a good reason.

    Should it happen? Maybe.

    I am not promoting war or the violence and horror that comes with it, but with the increasing government presence, we are gradually losing our freedoms. It's hard to tell, and many citizens are unaware of what is going on, even if the information on the subject is publicly available. While government is necessary for a functional society, too much government is a bad and dangerous thing. Politicians that know nothing about guns writing legislature to ban them, increasing taxes, healthcare reform disaster, and surveillance on civilians are all things to consider here.

    The system is broken and divided against itself, and the best way to fix that is to reset the system and root the bad from it. Protests backed by armed civilians may help, but it may escalate beyond that if someone fires the first shot.

  • It's possible, always, but unlikely.

    It is possible (but very doubtful) that there could be another USA civil war. It would NOT resolve itself in some dystopian way (think Divergent, Hunger Games), but more like last civil war (one side takes over the other, it is all resolved within a decade). And now, because the US is so large, it is highly possible that it would be person vs. Person, and not state vs. State. If it happened, it would probably be over one of these: racism (think Ferguson, I Can't Breathe), sexism (logical people vs. Feminazis), abortion (think Heartland War & Bill of Life), or rape.
    Numbers 2 and 4 would resolve themselves quickly: feminazis lose, anti-rape people win, just because of minority percentages.

  • Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How?

    Who would be fighting each other? What would they fight over? Which states would there be fighting in? By what time would there be a civil war? Why would enough people resort to violence when we could talk? And how would an American civil war in the 21 century play out?
