I would say it would be the older generation that will carry the early burden of the task if it came to it. The younger generation would likely sit out since they are already the sheep and too soft to bear the load or the thought.

Lots of folks that have lived and seen the changes in their life times will be ready. They can and will do what they can when that times comes. There are many skills that the middle folks have also.

I’d be curious of the military background ratio to those folks vs us MAGA degenerates.
They can train all they want, but until the bullets start flying, no one knows exactly what they will do.

Apparently with the amount of guns and ammo being hoarded (for rabbit hunting) someone thinks it possibly could come to more than just telling a few lies at the table. My question is if the worst-case scenario comes to violence, then how do I know who is on whose side other than just returning fire on who ever shoots at me.
What color would represent the right and the left ?

Not enough extremists on either side yet for a civil war-but getting there.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

Nothing to do with extremists on the middles side. The intimidation and prodding has been coming for some time. It will just take the right catalyst to ignite things then it will begin.

I was discussing this with an older, liberal friend of mine just yesterday. He reads the NYTs and considers it the Bible when it comes to the truth. Both of us agree we won't see another 1860 version of a civil war.

I think we'll see localized bloodshed in areas like Seattle where Antifa rears its head.

Of course it has to do with extremists.
Only when there are not enough left with common ground in the middle to compromise will violent civil war break out.
Only then will one side force their way on the other.

There is no common ground with the lefts agenda. We have yielded and tolerated far too much already. I don't consider myself an extremist. I do have different values and morals then these folks do. I have no intention of forcing my way upon others. They can continue to be who they want to be. Just don't push it down my throat and others who object to it.

There is no room for "live and let live" in a civil war.
That wont cut it.Extremists have no common ground with the other side.
One side views it a "pushing down my throat"
The other side views it as pushing down my throat(abortion issue for example).

They can’t be who they want to be if you don’t take the pill.

Just leave me be and there won’t be trouble. Keep it in your liberal cities and enjoy. Come to me and try and change my town, my community, or my neighborhood and it will not last.
I think they know this. They’ll back out for the same reason the “protest” that was supposed to take place in our little town was cancelled. They realized some will actually fight and that is not what they want. They want soft targets. They want to be the ones overpowering someone weaker or afraid to fight back. They want someone who will obey the law and not step outside of it even to defend themselves…they want victims. Most rural Americans don’t play victims very well. Not all will fight, some might just dig the holes to hide the bodies, but don’t think for a second that anything you’ve seen on TV would happen here without a fight. It’s not in our DNA. Say what you will, but like we told the protesters, we can show you better than we can tell you.

Biden is working real hard to light someone up then things will get real ugly. Unless you are BLM or Antifa or an unknown left wing group of course.

I have seen the type he's talking about target practicing in the mountains just east of Seattle. The folks I've seen might be just wannabes, but it is probably an indication of something.

Speak for yourself, a large portion of the older generation have enabled themselves to become victims of their own ignorance by refusing to change certain parts of their life for max longevity. How much of the older generation have armalite rifles and incognito rifles, body armor, NVGs, HF & VHF radios and trains collectively for many situations including the one mentioned in this thread? How much of the older generation write their local, state and federal politicians every month to ensure their elected reps understand their positions?

Speaking of changes, who is at fault? We can say whatever we want about 2020, but the sad part is why did "we" allow 2020 to be competitive? Was it the older generation that have introduced bills that seize the initiative to protect our god given rights and prevent the slow disarmament, dissolution and eventual downfall of our way of life?

It's already begun. 2020 was a prelude; Kenosha, Denver, Fort Collins, Klamath Falls, Cour d' Alene etc, etc

Hasn’t the ground work already been laid by the left to win a civil war if it were to rise up!
Gun control.
Electric vehicles that control our ability to freely move, 250 mile range.
Imprisoning individuals that gathered at the Capitol building for over a year without trial.
Disease mandates.
Control food supplies actually everything.
Control fuel prices
Control students
Do I need to keep going?
Freedom and Liberty have been put in peril!

Oh yah and then steal an election and create Ranked Voting that no one understands!
