I have pondered this exact question and for the most part I feel that any civil war or revolution would have a flash point, an incident or incidents
that begins to allow for specific roles and sides to be formed. While some violence would take place, the display of cool handed response from the
federal government is where the plan is going to fail. There will other failures, but it will one of many.
Depending on where and when you are when certain things happen can make the difference of life and death, but since it's still a choice and decision
to do anything, civil war or revolution takes on different faces in different parts of the nation and in different nations around the world. I will
try to keep my thoughts on America, but if certain aspects are applicable in Europe or Central America, then I for one will not challenge its
Once the cat is out of the wet bag, it's going to be mean and vicious and that means that most of the best law enforcement and initial military units
will be taken down or at least weakened over time by those most hardened and most gun toting ideologues. While under such a true and honest type of
civil war incident, our nation could get it back together and go on, but if there are those who secretly serve a different master and a different
global agenda then its another game. It it those nefarious types that will undermine and add fuel to the problem by adding weapons, money and
mercenaries to the equation so as to get some profit and power over others from it.
If we have learned anything is that we cant believe anything we are told and only half of what you see. The media could be reporting roving bands of
gun toting Americans killing blacks, Hispanics, Asians and or just armed groups killing everyone while screaming Armageddon is coming while in fact we
could have hired mercenaries of hired killers going around killing indiscriminately for political reasons and for money. Now if you don't know what
indiscriminately means, I encourage you to get read up because I don't mince words to try and get a certain flavor. The taste of civil war and
revolution is the last thing that anyone would want to experience. Civil war cant be worn like a cologne so its better to keep civil war wrapped
Innocent victims begin robbed, raped and killed and left in a burning house is not what will make anyone feel warm and safe. I guess the point I
would like to emphasize is that there could be much more evil out there for Americnas than some crazed armed military units clearing houses one by one
until well, you know, that knock knock on your front door. The knock you never wanted to hear. The one you know is not a candy gram. Well, anyway,
how we respond to some sudden attack on our person or community is going to get personal and not until you get familiar with "what is self defense at
home?" will anything get better.
If you're the type that is going to wait until someone comes to murder you then in a way you're getting what you deserve. I on the other hand
walked upright upon the earth as a man and as such I will defend my right to life to the death even if that means it has to be your death. I guess
too lengthy a life in Infantry Ranger units can make one callous, but I use to tell my men before combat that it was not our job to die for our
country, It was the job of the enemy to die and as long as our intent was true, we would collect those lives with respect and honor for these are
soldiers dedicated to killing us as much as we should be to killing them. Games on. Safety's off, good luck men. May providence be our guide.
It always worked for me and so far providence has shown me a trail to follow. I follow that trail to this day to a subject matter in life called self
While I have thought of what it would mean to me and how it would affect me if I were here or there etc. etc. so over time I learned it's better to
be prepared to take care of yourself and that includes self defense while on the road, at home in the back yard around the block, up the road, next
county over, next state etc etc. While I am certain with a great confidence that most families and decent minded people will not go out looking for
trouble, there comes a point in a real civil war where just as in any type of conflict where violence is being used to end matters or to affect some
demand where the mindset and tactics will go from defense to offense and that my friend is another matter. Being in offense is going and looking for
trouble and that is a subject best left for those that understand what they are looking for.
I would hope that any civil war not be forthcoming, but if one does come around, it will be what it is and only if it is used by evil types such a
civil war could be taken to the "Planet of the Apes" stage. That stage is where no one is going to want to be alive after the after. That's a
different type of survival, but in the scheme of things its got the be worst and probably the most unlikely occurrence unless it was meant to be that
Civil war could occur and we as a nation could get over it and move on, but if someone throws a grenade into the hot-tub it wont matter which end of
the hot-tub you are. We all are going to get it and it wont be Wylie Coyote angels drifting off into the sky after some big fall from his Acme
Rocket. Civil war is going to be bloody but its nothing that we as a nation couldn't get over and move on if we had the right leadership and return
to truth and real justice for all and not some elite scum of the earth degenerates gettin rich while the nation bleeds.
Civil war and revolution are evil, dirty and deadly for everyone. The guilty and the innocent die with only those that pull the strings getting
better for it. Say no to civil war and hell no to revolution but you better say a big yes for self defense because without it you will be returned
to the earth in a six foot grave in the literal sense. If you don't plan to fight for your life then you didn't have much of a life anyway. In
that case, I say you cant lose what you never had.
Keep politics out of self defense and you will go a great way to being true with your aim and your judgment. If I had done anything wrong up to this
point, God had many an opportunity to end my life as a show of discontent with me. I live to please my lord because he lives to please me. Its a
mutual relationship that has kept my focus in hard times
