We are in the middle of a second Civil War

All thatís missing are the bullets, artillery and bayonets, and the reason is geography. This one isnít North against South. Itís neighbor against neighbor.
Thereís no cure for ignorance. And the ignorant canít dumb down those who are aware. That being the case, thereís no knowing how long this current Civil War will continue.
But there can be no doubt that we are a divided country filled with far too much hatred. And there are issues on which it is totally impossible to agree or compromise.
So does anyone have a clue on how or when this crap will end? I donít.
Whatís your take on it?

13. Ultimately, the U.S. empire will crash followed by a vast, deep depression...
We sill rupture along ideological and regional lines, much like the Old Soviet Union.
At some point, some idiot will start shooting, and the shooting will last a long time. The victors will define who was virtuous.
As a liberal, I would not want to live in Texas (or anywhere in the South) where ideological cleansing would be expected.
We will not see great armies in blue and gray, fighting set battles on open fields. What we will see will resemble widespread guerrilla warfare with IUD's and death for all.
There's some more moderately interesting and unintelligent discussion at the link, but I'm still laughing at warfare with IUD's. :D
