Will there be a civil war if Trump wins?
I think your observation that this is the most important election since 1860 was spot on. I also thought that it was kind of scary: remember the Civil War happened as a result of Lincoln’s election.
My first reaction to this is no way. Americans have lost all taste for any sort of mass killing of other Americans.
But then, I noticed this news story from Denver about how a member of the ACLU of Colorado wrote the following in a Facebook post:
The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, ‘This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before Election Day.’ They’re not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there’s always force…
My observation is that white liberals, who claim to be against hate, actually harbor a very deep hatred for blue-collar white people. Hopefully, the vast majority of liberals who claim to be against gun control don’t actually own a gun.
