When everything finally does fall and SHTF, for lack of a better term, a second civil war will be inevitable and I'm sure the DHS knows that. What confuses me is how they think they can win a war with 300,000,000 members. It will be citizen vs. the government and there are far more civilians than government employees (about 2 Million as of last March). Granted a lot of the sheeple will be scared and turn to Big Brother for shelter and survival (probably by trading in weapons and information to secure resources) there will still be at least, at the very least, 10 times more people on the civilian side.
Not that I'm wishing another civil war on us, war is terrible - its a waste of time, energy, and resources. But if the gov'ts grip continues to tighten, as we all learned in our history classes, rebellion is sure to follow.
what sucks about this if its real is im stuck in florida , my son is in new england & my sis is in arizona , it will be a bitch to get us all together if the SHTF & we need to leave

Ok...now I'm scared....
This Friday, I was at the VA clinic and met up with an old retired friend/co-worker that was a straight laced Gung Ho E-9. He is now working at the local DHS center for the Assistant Director for the Homeland Protection Services local center as a contractor. He didn't go into details and he didn't reveal anything critical about any plans in the works at DHS as his job would be on the line.
What he did say to me, while we talked about the State of the Union and the amount of increasing DHS forces in the local area "looking for terrorists", was that if I can move out of the US soon, it might be a good decision, since I told him that I have that as an option. He said he can leave the US too and was seriously contemplating doing so.
It's the way he told me, without telling me anything, after thinking about it, that made me start to shake from dread. I've known him for a while and don't think he is pulling my leg with his advice.
Time to prepare for leaving the country..... darn
I have been saying this for years. We argue over politicians and political organizations and affiliations but it's just distraction from what's really going on. There are no longer differences between the major political parties, None of them have our best interest at heart. You can continue to vote and pretend you know better.
