Since I feel American are so divided, I am worried this empire will burn out from inside. Do you guys think the conservatives finally will fight with liberals? and who will win? what will happen next?

When it happens (and I mean when, not if) it won't be between "Conservitives and Liberals" . It will be a War of the classes.
The ever growing number of lower-middle class against the very upper class (very rich)..

Depening on how it goes, all i can say is "the Morloch and the Eloi"

I mean, if this election will be just like last one, will people shoot each other before the final decision is made? I bet Bill Oreilly will shoot Michael Moore when they meet in the street again? Or, Michael Moore shoot him first? Will extremist from conservative party steal some bombs and nuke San Francisco, Boston or New York? Or, Extremist from liberals will try to do similar things to nuke Houston or Atlanta?

I think such a war would probably be more of the McCarthyist type. An influent Senator or a President from the very socially conservative wing would establish a new Committee on Un-American Activities and put those who encourage terrorism (those who criticize the war on Iraq or the pre-emption policy, and those who criticize the President in a time of war) and those who encourage socialism (those who criticize tax cuts, are for gay marriage and against death penalty) on the suspects list. That's the worst scenario I could see happening.

or, well, one of the worst scenarios. There are of course worse scenarios, but any that include restricting liberties severely are bad scenarios.

I highly doubt it....... but then again if you believe in "John Titor" it should start within the next year or two. Or check out the Southern National Congress because evidentally the south wants to rise again.


Just a thought

i think about the possibility of another american civil war alot.
it's usually when watching the news on your election campaigns, but to be honest... i only think about it because i read what John Titor said.

I'm constantly surprised by the deep divisions and polarity that exists within US politics, I hope to God it doesn't become any more extreme because then this talk of civil war starts to look less fantastic.

There would probably be riots depending on how this election runs out...and depending on how those riots or whatever are dealt with the problem could escalate. There seems to be a gradually growing problem like everyone says...but it would take a large trigger.
I say if anything happens it'll be because of the election.

If there is another civil war I believe it will be the have nots against the have it alls. I think it's time for a major change in this country. The powers that be don't give a you know what about the little people that make things happen here. It's a sad state of affairs. We can only hope one day it will change. If it doesn't I can see things here getting really ugly.

Will there be one? NO.

However, if it was conservatives vs liberals, the conservatives would win, HANDS DOWN. Think about it - conservatives have guns, love guns, and shoot guns. Liberals are scared of guns.

I[m not Republican and we have guns. For hunting of course.

I never understand the Aamerican fascination with "Conservatives" and "Liberals", and the whole two party system.

First off, why do you have to be either/or? Everyone has their own mix of beliefs, and to label them one or the other out of two choices is rather limited.

Secondly, if you guys don't make your "Democracy" more representative of the people, then I would expect there to some sort of civil uprising. Whether its an actual war or not is to be seen.

I agree with you Stumason.
I wish there were'nt any "parties" and we just voted for the politicians based on their individual merits.
Just like job applicants have to have good resumes, personalities, and work ethics etc.

Yeah, I heard that republican are good at shooting.....But I also heard most educated people, scientists are democratic. Is that true? if that is true. will 100 cowboys win 1 nuclear scientist? just guessing....
Or..if there is god, god must help conservatives...then liberal will lose. But if there no god, conservatives live in an fantasy world, then they will lose.
am I right?

anyway..... faith vs. science, muscle vs. brain
who will win?

proxxx, you seem to think that conservatives are not smart, or have brains. I beg to differ with you. most Scientist are conservative, Teachers are more liberal. Not all conservatives are religious and right wing nuts. However, If a survey was taken, you will find most conservatives and liberterians have guns and know how to use them. Most of the military tends to be conservative, I said most not all. given these facts, I think the conservatives would win based on the abilities to use weapons.

It will be the people against the goverment. Things like the draft will be the last straw.

Should a Cival war happen again in the USA I think it would have to start not between the classes or the parties persay but on a factor of state rights. For example the recent problems with States rights to issue legal gay marrage. Bush watned to step in and make it unconstitutional... that is the sort of catalyst that could spark a state or group of states to want to split from the nation.

Should some states then declair their intent to split there will be a combination of supporters who flock to the state and those in the state who want nothing of it and leave. Then the National guard (or whats left of it) will be moved in to "Convince" the state not to leave. All of this action will likly spart demonstrations and riots resulting in a state of Martial law which will bring in the militia groups eiter against the government or hired by the government.

A number of people will likey take assylum in Canada.

Now as for who would win and the arguments that liberals are "Pansies" as one obviouls highly inteligent poster wrote. You would likly have a very wide mix of skills on both sides resulting in a prolonged engagement. Some have exellent skills with modern weaponry, others such as myself have years of experiance in Martial Arts and stealth, there will the engineers who are quite cappable of taking out bridges with minimal explosivses, and the survivalists who can help lead Guerilla groups. These types fo people will be on both sides resulting in a very long drawn out and devistating fall of our country.

Noone will win.

Hey, all I can say is my conservative buddies and I, well, it is apparent we are armed much better than the bleeding heart, gun control, tree worshipping, peacenik, baby killing, anti-war, Bush-hating liberals.
