Are we headed for another Civil War in the US?

I have been saying this for months now, and everyday I am more convinced, that my once outlandish notion is becoming reality. There is something fundamentally wrong with this country: the democratic process has halted; it has broken down. When people disrespect each other as people on either side of the political spectrum have, there is little hope that solutions or compromises may be arrived at.
My question is do you think this country is heading for a civil war- if so why and who will be the opposing sides? If no support that theory as to why it would not happen.
Personally I think we are heading for a civil war- here is my reasoning:
1. There is a clear distinction between those who want a more authoritarian/socialist nation versus those who want to preserve the capitalist/democratic America we live in.
2. There is a clear distinction between those who understand the principles and guidance and importance of the representative legislative process versus those who hide behind the Constitution as an excuse to create laws from the bench.
3. There is a clear distinction between those who favor strong national security vs. those who want a borderless, global government.
4. There is a clear distinction between those who hold US Constitutional principles dear (1st, 2nd, 10th Amendments in particular) and those who are ignorant or want to subvert those principles.
5. There is a clear distinction between those who want to maintain a sensible fiscal policy versus those statists in Washington who spend our tax money with reckless abandon.
6. There is a clear distinction between those who see themselves as Americans first versus those who want to segregate themselves into communities and ignore the national identity.
7. Despite his promises, surveys show that Americans have elected one of the most divisive Presidents since Richard Nixon.
These are serious issues that fundamentally challenge the formation of the Republic itself. Don't buy into the childish arguments that every criticism of the Federal Government is based in racism. That is ignorant and simple-minded talk.
Who will be the opposing sides- that is a simple question. I will use a slang term for the side that will oppose the gov. The "Bubbas" that being the primarily white rural people, sometimes called red-necks, hillbillies. Too which I belong in that group. The reason they (we) will oppose the US gov. is an easy concept. Most would assume tha it would be along racial lines- I just don't see that happening- yes there will be some tension- I just don't see that as a basis. The new administration sees the economic crisis as an opportunity to create a new bureaucracy, less accountable and more powerful than ever. This new bureaucracy is preparing to take charge in the areas of health care reform, urban affairs, energy policy and the fight against climate change. Each new government office signifies a massive claim against the well-being of every American. The fight against global climate change will put the country in an environmental stranglehold. Health care reform signifies the nationalization of 14 percent of the U.S. economy. And what is meant by “urban affairs”? It is a wealth transference program bound to demoralize the suburbs. Administration energy policy promises expensive, unworkable energy alternatives while ignoring enormous oil deposits recently discovered under Montana and the Dakotas. That is where the lines will be drawn- not along religious lines- although the gov will recruit some of the militias out there with chants of "democracy and god" it will be those that still suscribe to the words of Thomas Jefferson..."Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the form of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question. The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. "
The Obama administration is headed for failure on every front. The president has fended off dozens of law suits regarding his citizenship status, without producing a birth certificate to prove that he is a natural born citizen. He has refused to provide proof that he is in fact a natural born citizen, and his Kenyan relations say he was born in Nairobi at a time when his mother was too young to transmit U.S. citizenship.
The lines are being drawn, and we are headed for national tragedy. The country needs to wake up. Danger approaches, and it is coming on fast.

It is extremely unlikely the militias will ever side with the treasonous federal "authorities" deliberately destroying our Republic, to create a "new world order" global government.

Re: Are we headed for another Civil War in the US?

I daily "thank my lucky stars" to be born in a "civilized" country. We get to be in that 20% that is privileged through no effort of our own. I, for one, am pleased to share it, as best I can figure, with the other 80%. Perhaps a Civil War would put a little less "pompous righteousness" into our souls . . .

Re: Are we headed for another Civil War in the US?

I don't know about that. Why are some Americans so self loathing? We(america) the "pompous righteous" are the most generous when it comes to helping the rest of the world and our fellow neighbors. This world would be a sorry-ass place if not for this country. Unfortunately, Obama and his regime are destroying what made America great. Let me decide what I want to share with the less fortunate. The government has no right to decide that. As for civil war, its crazy to wish for it. But if it happens, I won't be on the side that stands for socialism/marxism, diversity, or political correctness.
