Almost nobody would show up to physically fight. Massive obese population for one so that is not going to work for warfare. More money would be spent on IV's, meds and arresting people who refused to fight than bullets.

Majority of Americans are soft and cowardly.

I wonder, even with all the firearms in circulation, could hold off an invasion.

....let alone hot civil conflict.


If China invaded the WestCoast, I believe the people of California would greet them with flowers, waving PRC flags, a' la the French welcoming the Nazis in 1940.


Yeah not so much. There's a reason for the gun laws California is famous for. And it isn't because of lack of guns..

Trump made la similar statement in 2018 on impeachment .

The liberals didn’t take this one literally.. They need to feed the flames to obscure what they’re doing and what’s coming down on them . They’re trying to set up the same scenario as the Mueller investigation. They want to make Barr unable to move on the IG report because it all look like retaliation .

I haven’t seen that the news yet .


“I’m not concerned, no,” the president told Reuters reporters about his potential impeachment during an interview in the Oval Office. “I think that the people would revolt if that happened.”

The way in which we are divided won't result in civil war. It will most likely be civil unrest. Think Anitifa in every major city in the USA rioting for weeks and some group to counter them. Alternatively, there will be terrorism from one side or the other or both.

The snowflakes on the coasts will be devastated though which just means more frequent sessions with their therapists. I say this because when Trump won the election, there were reports of mental breakdowns by some very sensitive people on the far left.

I've said this before, we don't have a common enemy and that's why we're fighting each other. We need a foreign bad guy we can all agree on. We should be celebrating our good fortunes but there are forces that want to break our country.

Yeah, I've thought about this and in a similar boat. If it were just me, I wouldn't GAF and speak my mind. However, I have family and kids to worry about right now.

I live in an EXTREMELY liberal town. I'm talking batsh*t crazy liberal. I'm also a business owner and have a lot of clients in the community. It would destroy a business if they openly expressed conservative views.

In fact, we had an ice cream shop where the owner came out as a Republican and many of these moonbats were openly hoping this guy went out of business.

Personally, I don't think business and politics mixes. I treat everyone the same. Even though I tend to be lean more right, I have clients across every spectrum. I couldn't give a damn about your politics, just pay me.... business, never personal. I have some suppliers and other people I do business with who are flaming liberal retards politically, but they do a good job in their profession, so we continue to do business.

I am a conservative Christian who believes we are living in the end times.
We are already at war with evil and our weapons are not conventional types.
Wickedness is in high places and we are fighting for our very lives.A war will
probably cost me my social security and only means of income.I would rather
be dirt poor with the Lord and freedoms I have now,then,riches and no freedoms.


I used to have this philosophy. However, I’m now of the belief that this world is designed to be problematic. It’s a school of sorts. The Grandest video game you can play in. In this life, I’ve experienced enough trauma. War would only produce more of that.

Civil War would mean the actual killing of other Americans; maybe even those within your own family like the one in the 1860s.

Despite all the bravado, Americans would never do that. We are in a Civil War of Words but an actual physical war between citizens would never happen.

The title speaks for itself. If we are headed in the direction of civil war (which many believe is inevitable), how do you think it will affect the economy? How will it affect you, your family and friends?

Many people talk big. It’s easy to throw the word of ‘war’ out there. However, have you actually sat back and truly thought about the ramifications for you and everyone you love?

I’ll share how this would affect me. I own a business in tourism. No need to say more, I’d be out of business. My ex works for a video game company. Also pleasure sales, so she’d be out of a job as well (that leaves no one to support my teenage kids). My sister is in housing. If no ones has money for rent, she’s screwed too. My father is in the same business as me — screwed. My mother’s husband repairs sidewalks. Well who would have the money for that? Just about everyone I know, would be screwed. The only exception would be one of my close friends. He is a doctor — biz would boom for him... is that a good thing though???

I’ll be totally honest. I am not partisan. Never have been and never will be. Why you may ask? Because ALL politicians are corrupt. In order to be a politician, you must have some level of narcissism.

To sum it up, I’m not prepared to lose my entire livelihood / security because of some squabbling narcissists that are running the show. Let’s be honest with ourselves, the swamp will NEVER be drained. Why? Because it’s not a swamp, it’s a massive very deep ocean. Even if they did happen to drain it, there would just be and endless line of narcissists to take their place.

Let’s also keep in mind, this possible war is not over freeing slaves (this seems like a good cause). Which ironically, was not what the first civil war was about; but the history books do a good job of making us believe so. It is well documented that Lincoln was racist, and never believed blacks should have the same rights as whites.

Are you prepared to lose most everything you and your loved ones have built up — over your political affiliation?


Yes! I have a family too but some things are can’t be helped. Your basically advocating for tyranny because at lest with Tyranny you have a job and house. Oh I must protect my family, well move to some other country than.

If your on the left you believe it’s trump and if your on the right it’s the progressive left who is pulling the strings and acting as tyrants. Your going to have to pick a side or get the F out of the way.

There wont be a civil war. All of this is just BS talk from keyboard warriors who have been drinking the MSM Koolaid. My whole life (about to be 53) with danged near every election I've heard "They're going to take our guns" and other ridiculous malarkey that never happens.

The MSM makes their money off of advertisers. Advertisers place their ads where they will get the biggest bang for their buck (high volume of viewers). The MSM figured out Jerry Springer Show and the like got seriously high viewership. The MSM changed from factual news to Jerry Springer type opinion over fact reporting, the more controversial the better. The MSM wins, big advertisers win, politicians stirring the pot win- the American people lose!

I doubt there ever will be a hot one again. If there was, it wouldn’t last very long.


Part of me says this is true. How do you think millennials would fare without their smartphones?

On the other hand, there is so much hatred and divisiveness running the planet, maybe it would spiral into something huge.

However, In either scenario, myself and the people I love would be screwed. It’s just a matter of how long we would be screwed for...


Oh you mean the same ones who have been constantly fighting in wars and conflicts since 2001 I don’t know boomer but my guess is you don’t want to know.

Get the F out of the way sounds pretty good. I hear the Mediterranean is very nice this time of year.

Don’t you get it — they want you divided.

Relax, NOTHING will ever change. People will continue to buy cars. People will continue to buy gasoline. People will continue to copulate and have babies.

Most people simply do not care about politics. What you think is the most important thing is the World other people just change the channel.

I've stopped watching cable news channels. It's not news. It's entertainment. I prefer fantasy football over Trump's latest tweet. Sorry, I just don't care.
