Civil war coming?

Is America heading for civil war? "Civil War 2.0"?

No. Not just no, but it would be impossible to have a second civil war.

That's because America has never yet had a civil war. Regardless of what your government-approved history course told you.

There was a revolution, following secession, in 1776; war between America and Great Britain— two separate countries.

Then in the 1860s, again following secession, there was a war between the United States of America and the Confederate States of America— two separate countries. Countries that Lincoln and other thugs wanted to force into unification.

A true civil war is when two factions are using military force and fighting for control of one government, and that hasn’t happened here. 

Any "normal" election is closer to a civil war than any war between separate countries is-- all that's lacking is the shooting, which I could see happening; you already have two opposing factions fighting for control of one government.

The situation between the Texas government and the US federal government won’t become a civil war. Even if it broke up the “united” States. 

Texas isn’t likely to try to take over and control the US federal government. I’m not sure what you’d call it if the feds tried to take over and control the Texas government, but it wouldn’t meet the criteria to be a civil war, nor would it cause one. Secession isn’t a civil war, nor can it result in one. 

If the current situation causes war, it can’t— by definition— be a civil war. Unless you torture, stretch, and twist the definition of "civil war" so that it can include the American "Civil War", which would be a dishonest and political thing to do. Even if a dictionary does it.

If you want to support what I do, you will. If not, you won't.
Thank you.

  1. "Texas isn’t likely to try to take over and control the US federal government."

    It's been doing that for several years with respect to the "border situation."

    The Texas claim has always been that the federal government should be doing X with respect to that situation, and it's gone to court to compel the federal government to do X (that is, to take over and control the federal government with respect to doing or not doing X), and now claims to be doing X militarily because the federal government should be, but isn't, doing X.

    If Texas seceded, any war that followed wouldn't be a "civil war," but what's going on now is EXACTLY that.

    1. Every state government tries to force its agenda on the federal government. Every issue, every day. It's the nature of politics. Until they start shooting, I don't see it as war.
      If it cripples the feds, I'm in favor of it, even when I disagree with the agenda.

  2. But in this case, they've started shooting ... or at least pointing guns and giving orders. That's what activating the National Guard and "sealing off" areas then telling feds they can't enter those areas. And that's what it will mean if the feds, on the basis of the SCOTUS order the Texas regime is defying, point their own guns back and force their way in.

    None of this is really THAT big an escalation of politics in general. When the feds or the states pass a law or institute a regulation, they're at war on the population (which is why you'll be caged or killed if you resist); sometimes they threaten the same on each other, all while not formally seceding or disassociating. They both want the same ball and they're wrestling, or threatening to wrestle, over that ball.

  3. It's very interesting that you posted this. Hollywood has a movie coming out soon about this very topic. Here's a trailer.

    1. Wouldn't surprise me if they decide to pull it from release... unless they'd like to encourage it to happen.

  4. It is bad along the border in Arizona as well. We can thank Biden for that. . . .NOT!
