Recent polls suggest 1/3 of Americans think we are heading to one. I’ve also seen a few posts by Conservatives saying they would win since they have all the guns.
I cant see where Liberals and Conservatives would march towards each other down Main Street, armed, and start firing at each other.
IMO a true “civil war” would involve either
a) Two or more factions of the military turning on each other
b) A mass armed uprising pitting civilians versus a combination of the military and police
c) A State voting to secede.
The only way I see A or B happening is two scenarios:
-President Trump is removed from office via impeachment or consequences of arrest: conservatives either surround Washington Dc facilities or an organized attack on government facilities
-President Trump is defeated in 2020, refuses to step down claiming the election was fixed, there is a Constitutional crisis and that is where the possibility of Generals and Admirals at political odds then deciding the nation’s fate through violence.
As for Scenario C, note how that worked out for the South in 1865.
Im having a hard time believing any of the above scenarios will take place. Is there another way a “civil war” will manifest itself?
