Civil War in the US?

I thought this article was quite interesting and there is nothing to add as Larry Sellin pretty much covers the subject.  Comments made on this article were also interesting. 

Will An Obama Victory Spark A Civil War In The US?  by Larry Sellin.

America is on the verge of fragmentation and civil conflict because its citizens have lost control of their government and lost faith in its political institutions.

Nineteenth century political satirist Ambrose Bierce once described Washington D.C. as a strife of interests masquerading as a contest of principles and the conduct of public affairs for private advantage.

Indeed. Not much has changed one hundred years on.

The August 27, 2012  Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just eight percent (8%) of likely voters think that the US Congress is doing a good job.

Most Americans agree that the Democrat and Republican establishments are infested by individuals whose allegiance is not to their country, but to themselves and their political party. Their aim is to be unconstrained by the Constitution and the rule of law and unaccountable to the American people. Their conduct is driven by political expediency and winning elections for the sole purpose of obtaining power and profit.

The US has elections, but it no longer has representative government. The US has a free press, but one that is partisan and dishonest.

The Code of Ethics of the Society of Professional Journalists states:

Public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. The duty of the journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues. Conscientious journalists from all media and specialties strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty. Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist’s credibility.

The reality of American journalism bears no resemblance to that official portrait.

Most Americans agree that the mainstream media represented by ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and the liberal newspapers are little more than propaganda machines for the Democrat Party and are distorting the news in an attempt to manipulate public opinion to support the reelection of Barack Obama.

Few American institutions remain untouched by political corruption.

Through the blatant careerism of senior officers like the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, even the American military has been politicized to further the goals of the Obama Administration by submitting to the agenda of radical Islam, attempting to suppress free speech, and undermining public trust in the military by allowing active duty personnel in uniform to engage in partisan politics through their participation in a gay pride parade.

The real issue of the 2012 election is the endemic corruption in the federal government perpetrated by a permanent political class, financed by crony capitalism and facilitated by a fawning media (“It’s the corruption, stupid”).

They have brought us to the brink of bankruptcy, have opened our borders to illegal immigration, and have permitted a fifth column promoting Sharia law to infiltrate our society and judicial system.

Most Americans agree that there are anti-democratic and anti-American forces working aggressively inside the government and country to reduce American global influence and to promote the interests of global financiers and ideologies hostile to the United States.

The Obama Administration is expecting reelection and expecting trouble. It has ordered nearly one billion rounds of hollow point bullets. Hint – that type of ammunition is not meant for target practice. The 750 million rounds ordered by Obama’s Department of Homeland Security alone is enough ammunition for the government to fire three rounds into the body of every living American citizen.

When the truth is eventually told, the chronicles of the Obama years will represent the most sordid in American history and symbolize a pivot point when self-serving politicians collaborated with a compliant press to trigger the fall of the American republic.

If Obama wins, the American people should be prepared for economic collapse, a full assault on Constitutional rights, societal fragmentation, and civil strife.

There is a criminal in the White House, who is bent on a radical transformation of the country and must be removed from office if the United States is to survive.

But representative government will not return to America simply by defeating Barack Obama. It will only return when ordinary Americans feel empowered by their political institutions, not oppressed by them.

  1. Good post Pepp!

    I agree 100% with the Col. If Ovomit does mange to stay in office it will be by pure corruption. Every red blooded American Patriot should be furious if that happens and there’s a good possibility that an armed revolution would result! We cannot, we must not let these Marxist/Communist continue their destruction of the our freedom, our Republic and the United State’s as we know it!

    It could and is likely to happen if Conservative Constitutionalists see anything amiss in the election, I have some difficulty seeing that as a negative outcome to that scenario though. Troublesome, disruptive, unnecessary, and tragic, but not really a wrong outcome.


    • Gar,

      I agree. Unfortunately, should that happen, it will be necessary to do whatever we must to save our country.


      • Gar Swaffar said:

        There are literally millions of us out here who understand that the nation is more than just a chunk of dirt. And what really matters are the ideals which created this country and were fostered only here and nowhere else on the planet. The nation must be saved.

  6. Excellent column. He really hit all the points. I was listening to a panel and I think it was Gibbs said that the statement by Welsh that the numbers were cooked, is the example why people have lost faith in their institutions and government. All because one powerful person can come out and say this kind of stuff and it gains traction. So people lose faith because of that? Finally, someone said that the reason people lose faith in Washington is Washington – not someone or statementslike like that. Isn’t it strange how they want to blame anything but Washington parasites for wrecking its integrity and credibility? It’s Congress’s approval, Obama’s disapproval and there is no functional press either. Never mind which came first, when you don’t have a functional press doing anything we’re headed for the ash heap. To make matters worse, elitist pols try to tell US what the problem is, while we know its total failure. It takes seeing the whole problem not symptoms. He’s got it right.


    • bull,

      The Alinsky Party (aka Democrat party) will never take the blame for anything. As I’m sure you know, the “Alinsky rules” are to lie,cheat, steal, and distort all information. Any and all
      rotten things to achieve their agenda of Americas destruction.

      We can only hope that enough Patriots have awakened to see the big picture. We now have a criminal/Marxist would be Dictator for a president. He and his administration are the Enemy! “The Enemy Within!” Under him, we no longer even have a Congress and only a one-man-Senate. All complicit in America’s demise. The MSM are nothing more than propaganda outlets as it was with all Communist Dictators. They controlled all radio and TV communications. And now they seek control of the internet.

      I see no alternative but to have an armed revolution should these Traitors maintain control.


  7. ‘awk, No sense in letting it go to waste. Don’t We The People own it?


  8. I really hope the election outcome, if Romney wins, isn’t disputed but I think there is a good chance that we may not know who won for a very long time. Either way there will be unrest, at the very least. I think Washington is less afraid of patriots than the ‘takers’.


  9. Gray Ghost (Mississippi) said:

    Regardless of who wins, I am afraid that a civil war might be unavoidable. If Romney wins (as I believe will be the outcome of the November election), the inner-city blacks and the entire “entitlement crowd” will riot. Obama, as a lame-duck president, will do nothing to stop this rioting except talk. And this rioting could develop into a civil war very easily.

    On the other hand, if Obama wins the election I believe that “Mr. Flexible” will do and/or try anything to advance his agenda. This includes shutting down the US Congress, declaring martial law, allowing the UN to become the civil law enforcement branch of the federal government, trying to confiscate all weapons in civilian hands, etc.

    These and similar actions by Obama would start a civil war.


    • Ghost,

      I believe you’re right on all points. In fact, according to the Alinsky rules that Obama and his cohorts follow, civil unrest and chaos are to be purposely created.


  10. I believe that Obama etal are underestimating the backlash from American’s who do value freedom. I believe that they see the opportunity to subjugate America to global governance and falsely believe that the population is impotent and will bow without too much fuss. They are wrong, as usual but I don’t think that there is much we can do to stop the upheaval before it starts. If they do what I know they want to do there will be a high price to pay for all….it will all have to come to a head and play out and the outcome is unpredictable at best.


  11. I am afraid that whether he remains in office or not that there will be a revolution. If he does not win, his supporters will start a civil war. If he remains in office, We The People are not going to take his socialism anymore. We have lost too many freedoms already and will not stand to allow him to take more control of our lives.
