The Northerners destroyed the South during the civil war. It would be the same result.

Just a hypothetical question.
In the US we seem very divided between conservative and liberal right now. More so than I have ever seen in my 45 years on the planet. Everything is very polarized, and it seems there is no turning back at this point.
Let's face reality. Urban centers are basically liberal, while rural areas tend to lean conservative.
In the hypothetical situation, let's assume that things boil over, the government can no longer control things, and basically a new civil war begins.
What would that look like? It sure wouldn't be pretty. Every state has big cities, and open country. How would the dividing lines be drawn, certainly not via states like in the Civil War.
Coastal cities would cut off supplies that are incoming bound for middle America, farmers would stop shipping goods bound for cities. Who would control the electric infrastructure, highways between cities, sanitation, etc???
Which side would the military come down on, would it split? Would they just disband and go home to protect families, and whichever side they believe in?
All hypothetical... let's keep things on topic, not go political. Just a what if scenario.
