You want the truth? YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!
But here it is anyways.
People today are so busy blaming the "Other party" for the problems of not following the constitution:
"Clinton did it"
"No Bush the idiot did"
That no one is intelligent enough to hold a Civil War anymore.
They'd lose their focus.
It's not about getting rid of Bush, or getting back at Clinton for what they did...the Democrats or Republicans, it is about doing what they AREN'T
To do this, you must create a political party, that is not interested in Federal seats, but state seats, governor, state legislatures.
And from there this party focuses on reinstituting the constitution into the land, meaning the State doesn't obey laws from the central government
that aren't constitutional.
This is...the patriot act, for example. This is the massive Income tax, and the fact we are off the gold standard.
Through an effort like that, you might be able to avoid Civil War all together, by simply having the states excersise the rights of the states,
afterall, the central government is a regulator and a shield, not a supreme legislature, it has that ability only so it can enforce some required
centrality to the all the states, that is necissary to avoid secession or economic failure.
But it really has gone too far now. To the point where even the National Gaurds are no longer "state loyal".
Remember, Rome first became an empire, by its armies losing loyalty to Rome, and putting it in their Commanding Officers.
What's happening here, is the State's Militias, and the people, are losing the idea that was America, which was that you are an "American" second,
and a "Georgian" first, or a "Nevadan" first, or a "Californian" first.
Through that mentality Federalism lives, and the Central Government does not rule your life, and Empire is thwarted.
But that mentality is all but gone, picture Gladiator the movie.
"There was once a dream that was Rome"
America would never be able to become an Empire yet, no one is in that "mentality" but it's easil starting down that road.
