    Nah. The illusion of freedom still exists. People will just go back and forth between Democrate and Republicans and complain about the other side. Same as it always has been.

    Nah. It's bad because it's the internet. Leave the basement and things aren't quite as horrible. There's some political tension but certainly nothing on the verge of "civil war".

    Americans' guns have already been taken. There are thousands of weapons that have been banned just in the last 40 years. The number one gun "crime", which people are arrested by the police for, in the US is :"carrying a concealed weapon without a permit", which is literally protected in writing by the Constitution. Lmfao.

    This. Speaking for myself, I don't consider myself lazy. I work hard, I take care of my body, I do outdoor activities/hobbies, etc. Yet, there's nothing in today's America that I would consider important enough to risk my life to fight for. The stupid politics that the fringe right and fringe left fight for on Facebook/twitter is retarded. Most Americans don't really care and just want to live their life. The next great war will be when someone like the Nazis risk actual world peace that the majority of people are willing to band together to fight against. Until then, people don't want to fight against stupid chit like LGBTQ+ or abortion rights (not saying those aren't important to people, but they are not important enough to fight a war over).

    ...

    Civil war isn't between ordinary common couch potato citizens and generally modern civil wars don't involve most of the citizenry in the fighting. It's between two(or more) factions of gov and their militaries. This is a very common misconception every time this subject comes up on the net. Citizens may join in for various roles such as militia, support, aid, intel gathering etc .... but in general modern civil wars don't depend on citizen activity/conditions/discomfort to start them or fight them. They are fought between two different organized bodies each claiming or challenging to be the one and only government of the land and their militaries. If it happens soon in the US that split would be mostly along the Dem Party leadership and its declared president and its military and the Republican Party leadership and its declared president and its split of the military.

    We are already in a political cold civil war and have been since early 2016.

    It's possibly going hot in the next few years. If so, it would be a split between two different governments(and their splits in the military) battling for control. Between CWII and the eventual global WWIII it would likely precipitate once the US global front was gone, we could lose at least half of the population. The country and our economy would be in ruins for a long time and never be the same again.

    This sort of scenario has been prophesied by many from all walks for a very long time. Whether those were accurate and are coming now, only time will tell.

    I'd prepare accordingly, whether that be for potential militia service, or for community survival and defense - community-based survival planning is the best - hacking it on your own in isolation won't work for the vast majority. ie. now might be a good time to get to know your neighbors better, without mentioning any of this of course.

    There are obviously a number of generals against Trump, but I'd assume the vast majority of the military leans right. Where is this "Dem Party leadership and its declared president" going to find their military who are willing to fight for them?

    Nope.

    The values of the left and right are incredibly divergent. I often wonder if the leftists on R&P are trolling. However, a quick peek at reddit shows that they aren't. Imagine a forum full of badmonkey's and you have their views. InB4 bad monkey says he isn't a leftist.

    The repression of free speech has reduced the ability of people to challenge beliefs and makes people crack the first time their beliefs are attacked. This insures that eventually a civil war will form.

    HOWEVER, war is fuking awful. When people have safety, food, water, and shelter it is really hard to sacrifice all of that to defend an ideal. Unless the Dems are stupid enough to have mandatory gun buy backs I don't see it happening.

    Nah, war wont happen until people are starving srs. Its the media, give control of the media to patriots and our country would reverse course and be more united than ever before in a matter of months srs. If the msm wasnt anti-American propaganda that spews identity politics and race baiting 24/7 and was pro-America we would be strong and solid.

    Of course the elites that are fuking us dont want us united, because then we'd focus on them and everything the do to slow down our prosperity/enrich foreign countries.

    I agree, the values of the left and right are divergent but you have to remember always that reddit and here most of the left posters going on and on are shills or even bots srs, and if theyre real theyre the losers you see online with blue/pink hair and 5 facial piercings. The loser depressed types who are miserable and want the rest of the country to be and drag them down to their level. They represent views that 20-25% of the US holds at best.

    The overwhelming majority of us support conservative, America first principals. The chit the media and these platforms push is the big lie, all of the stuff they censor is the real America shining through. Remember that.

    There are just going to be riots and civil unrest. No real war. Just a bunch of assassinations, screaming, rioting and crying until both sides basically give up.

    What do you mean 'where are they going to find their military?'

    They will get theirs from the same military the Republicans get theirs. That's how civil wars work: they are splits in existing government and their each take of the existing military.

    You and I wouldn't be attacking and killing anyone unless we became part of an organized militia that was working alongside/under the already existing military. It is the political leadership of each side who will be determining who/what/when/where to attack/kill, not us.

    People starving are not a requirement. That's what may cause civil unrest such as protests, riots, etc, but is generally not a requirement for civil war. It may be one of many precipitating factors but is not a requirement. Civil war is when those in government or capable of being a government battle between two or more highly organized sides each with an organized military force and both battling each other for total control. We are in a political cold civil war with two disagreeable sides battling for control. That eventually can lead to an irreconcilable constitutional crisis, leading to two sides each wanting total control and the other gone, and then military confrontation begins between each side's military battling control for cities, military bases, airports, shipping ports, other important points, etc.

    Civil wars are generally not people in the city vs people in the country .... or any other situation of citizens vs citizens. Civil wars are between two different factions of government, and their militaries, fighting to be the one and only government controlling the area they're fighting for.

    That's less likely than civil war. What you (like so many others) are referencing are conditions among the people.

    This is not about conditions among the people. It's about an already-happening split in *government* that's already in a political cold war with each other that may eventually go hot in a cascading war buildup.

    Two different governments and territory? No sht. Now I’m under the impression the “civil war” people keep getting fear click-baited into talking about is between -broadly speaking - liberals and conservatives, no?

    ... and hopefully maybe us talking about it and warning about it will make it less likely to actually happen and not more.


    A hot civil war starting in this country will possibly be the beginning of the end of this world as we know it. America's opponents are ready to take advantage of such a situation. We'd likely see Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and some of their allies, joining to do the things they wanna do in their respective regions such as taking over new territory in eastern Europe, the Middle East(because oil is everything), and SE Asia. That means that not only do they launch invasive wars in various locations but also that they nuke the US and all of NATO first. The loss of US global military power due to a destructive civil war at home would make a nuclear first strike against the US far more easily done and it's something I believe Putin has been working on for a while.

    ... and again, there's also that whole end times/Armageddon/Bible prophecy thing.

    The U.S. needs a president who is deeply center-left or right. Being hard left or right and trying to manage this country has become impossible. You need someone who will act like a mediator and make deals between the parties, not someone who seeks to make 4 years of red policies or blue policies. Sometimes you cannot get 100% of what you want, but the alternative is to get 100% but only for one side to rebel against you.

    We just don't have a leader who can be on good terms with everybody and put emphasis on mutual interests and not political alliances.
