Civil War. Jesus. I can't even form a mental picture of what that might be like. I pray that I never have to look back on it as a memory, and know my kids had to live through it. Or, God forbid, NOT live through it. Every day in this country, there are fewer people alive who have first-hand knowledge of what real war is like. However. Should it become necessary, and the brain-damaged left DOES lose the rest of it's mind, I'll be with the rest of the Patriots. And I like our chances.


First let me say that I really like your post, it touched me. Now, I like you and a lot of sane people don't want another civil war, but there's someone in the shadows that is really pushing hard for it.

We've heard the warnings for many years now about a new generation who was used to participation trophies, 2+2-5 if it makes you feel good, and a life without consequences. We heard how terrible these poor kids would have it when they entered the workforce.

What we didn't expect was that instead of entering the workforce, these same self-entitled people would defer to living in their parents' basement and becoming engaged in politics. We have now seen the beginnings of the result of that oversight. They cannot fathom not getting their way, and when one is a member of a larger group that is simply not always possible.

That rude awakening that we thought would occur at the hands of capitalism has instead decided to wake up in democracy and civics... dangerous.

Wow. I feel like I'm in the twilight zone.

I just read this article from CNN.

President Donald Trump's winning streak




There is more evidence than the soon-to-be reshaped Supreme Court and the roaring economy to make a case that Trump is building a substantial presidency that in many ways looks like a historic pivot point, despite its extremely controversial nature.

...

it's also no longer possible to credibly argue -- despite the distracting blizzard of controversy, busted decorum and staff chaos constantly lashing Washington -- that there is not something significant taking place that is changing the political and economic character of the nation itself.



Read the whole article. It's the most balanced thing I've seen them write in a very long time. It actually feels like journalism.

Wow.

How does one get in on these paid protests and how much could one look to make? Asking for a friend of course.

When it comes to " Civil War " The U.S. is a newbie. You have only had two.

England on the other hand has had 13. You have a long way to catch up.

I know. Right?

First Ford announces she doesn't want Kavanaugh impeached... and CNN writes a balanced article.

Mandela effect in action. Feel like I woke up to an alternate universe this morning.

I just love the new narrative...don't like who was legally elected...IMPEACHMENT protests started before day one in office...

I've been watching the empty heads on most of the networks discussing the impending Kavanaugh vote and the associated protests.

A theme I am starting to see emerge is the one where now, in advance of any actual action by SCOTUS, the legitimacy of the court is being explicitly rejected.

Is it an overreaction to think we are headed into a potentially very dangerous period of our history?

I can't recall a time in my life where so many openly rejected the entirety of our government.

Crazy, crazy times.



It is not an over reaction to think you are headed into potentially very dangerous period in US history. You are!

The out right rejection of the Constitutional electoral process by which Trump was elected in 2016 by the leftists and now their rejection of the process by which Kavanaugh will be placed on the court are both amazing and dangerous. The phenomenon is best characterized by the MSM explicitly rejecting what they call "normalization" of this Presidency because they view it as an illegitimate result.

Care to know why?

Read: www.nytimes.com...


Donald Trump won just under 46 percent of the popular vote and 2.8 million fewer votes than Hillary Clinton. And Judge Gorsuch was confirmed by a vote of 54-45. According to Kevin McMahon of Trinity College, who wrote all this up this year in his paper “Will the Supreme Court Still ‘Seldom Stray Very Far’?: Regime Politics in a Polarized America,” the 54 senators who voted to elevate Judge Gorsuch had received around 54 million votes, and the 45 senators who opposed him got more than 73 million. That’s 58 percent to 42 percent.



And if the Senate confirms Brett Kavanaugh soon, the vote is likely to fall along similar lines, meaning that we will soon have two Supreme Court justices who deserve to be called “minority-majority”: justices who are part of a five-vote majority on the bench but who were nominated and confirmed by a president and a Senate who represent the will of a minority of the American people.


So there you have it. The Leftist-Progressives/Democrats really only accept as legitimate outcomes achieved by "Majority Popular Vote" results. They see the Electoral College as altogether "Anti-Democratic" and reject the results thereof.

What you have is an ongoing Constitutional Crisis. The Democrat Party, the umbrella political organ of the Progressive/Leftists, are determined that the US be ruled over by their voters in the major Urban Metro areas and the Coasts.

The next time they get back into power several things may well happen. First is that they will kill the economic recovery with extreme prejudice and second, they'll do all they can to pull the plug on the Electoral College. And because of open borders and their overwhelming numbers, they will usher in a One Party Dictatorship, a la California.

If you stand against them, at that point you will realize you can't beat them at the ballot box. You can only defeat them with military force!

I live near Portland, so ya... I'm ready for an early snowflake dusting... I don't want to generalize but it seems to me in these protests the women look like guys and the men look like girls and I don't think it is a gay thing...lol

Well, it doesn't surprise me that the Leftists don't see this as their country. This is America and they want to live in Europe. I think they need to just move to one of the more socialist countries without the Bill of Rights so they feel more 'at home' rather than trying to change our country into just another socialist hell-hole.

There are already plenty of places that have socialism and censorship. Let's keep America free and one of a kind...a place where individual liberty is placed above a dystopian society.

True enough, though I think our second one is tops in terms of blood spilled.

I've no interest, not one bit, in catching up to you in numbers of civil wars...just as soon stay way, way, way behind.

The possibility exists that cooler heads are beginning to be heard.

Whatever else she may, or may not be, Ford isn't a total idiot. Naive? Almost certainly, but perhaps not completely stupid.

Same goes with the media, perhaps, just perhaps, they're, some of 'em, beginning to realize that a sizable majority, or close to it, have had enough, and are starting to make that known.

I sooooooo hope you are right.

I'm sick of the acrimony.

I'll say this. Avenatti and the cable networks who treated him like a knight in shining armor had as much to do with Kavanaugh getting confirmed. If there's a straw that broke the camel's back, it's probably that one.
