How did the civil war begin? The quick answer is, the South fired the first shot right… Well that is NOT a real truthful answer is it? Second, did Lincoln and those within his administration say this and do that, that made the South feel they had no choice but to fight?

Paraphrasing for sure…
“American’s are cowards…”
“Conservative Americans and Gulf War Vet’s are terrorists”
“When I see American Service men coming home from serving overseas I think Timothy McVeigh.”
“All American’s will be forced to volunteer…”
“Strict gun laws will be passed, regardless of what the courts say about them and the 2nd Amendment…”

Obama trashes the constitution and American values and you're OK with that? Main stream media tells you a glimmer of truth and you complain about it? Are you a janitor or an educated person? Are you a loser or someone that looks at both sides of the issue and makes an educated guess? To me you come across as a loser.

Ill help him out. Page 7 of Rightwing Extremism
(U) Disgruntled Military Veterans
(U//FOUO) DHS/I&A assesses that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to exploit their skills and knowledge derived from military training and combat. These skills and knowledge have the potential to boost the capabilities of extremists—including lone wolves or small terrorist cells—to carry out violence. The willingness of a small percentage of military personnel to join extremist
groups during the 1990s because they were disgruntled, disillusioned, or suffering from the psychological effects of war is being replicated today.
— (U) After Operation Desert Shield/Storm in 1990-1991, some returning military
veterans—including Timothy McVeigh—joined or associated with rightwing
— (U) A prominent civil rights organization reported in 2006 that “large numbers
of potentially violent neo-Nazis, skinheads, and other white supremacists are now
learning the art of warfare in the [U.S.] armed forces.”
— (U//LES) The FBI noted in a 2008 report on the white supremacist movement
that some returning military veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have
joined extremist groups.

"I am not going to give a history lesson, simply because I don’t have the patience to walk everyone through Americas history, which is something each of you should have studied on your own in the first place"
There are more than Americans who frequent ATS. Im Scottish, do you know my history?
Personally I dont care for yours due to the fact that so many spout it, lean on it and quote its role in the birth of your constitution. Yet, do nothing about the situation you as a nation are in.
