Certainly a possibility, given the extreme polarization and de-legitimization of the rule of law (thanks to partisan investigations and double
standards). Still, to keep this statement in frame, I'd put those odds around ~10%.
It is not a good thing or something anybody should wish for. The realities of civil war can be witnessed in many nations today. For instance, if the
first American civil war is any indication, many innocent lives would be lost and our nation's infrastructure would be reduced to third world
standing. Few families or groups would be unaffected by such a tragic and large scale event.
The way I see it, few things are worth dying over. Few things are worth losing X number of family/friends. Politics are not worth it. Petty arguments
are not worth it. The only thing worth such tragedy to me is our Constitution and freedom/liberty of our Citizens. And despite the polarization,
neither of those things are in immediate danger.
I just hope those egging on conflict/strife realize civil war is nothing like Hollywood portrays. It isn't glamorous and is unlikely to result in some
"magic utopia paradise" springing up after ward.
In fact, one surefire way to help America's enemies would be for our nation's own Citizens to reduce our infrastructure/healthcare/security to
unprecedented lows. A very terrible idea indeed
There is nothing our country is facing that can't be resolved at the ballot box and by agreeing to mind our own business. Whether or not everyone
realizes this is yet to be seen. A more likely scenario I envision is a state (like CA) seceding. Even this would not mean a civil war is inevitable.
Provided that both "sides" are rational and have a concerted desire to bring about a peaceful solution.
