    I will tell you this right here and now: I do not care one iota what the powers-that-be decree to be "legal".....I will do what is necessary to defend me and mine, the consequences be damned.

    This will not occur for a multitude of reasons. Who is fighting? Are BLM and Antifa garrisons attacking SoccerMom Suburbias across the country? Is there a clear cut leader of movement X to against movement Y? Will LE and .mil align against ____. Also, the comfort level of 98% of the population prohibits it. Is your accountant, lawyer, or orthodontist giving up their practice to go shoot Antifa clowns lining up in formation on Main Street? I don't believe so, not in an organized manner anyway. Sorry,CW2.0 not happening. Lots of discontent? Yes. Lots of division in the nation? Yes. CW 2.0 as result of this? No.

    33 trillion in debt and growing, 10k immigrants per day coming across the border, loss of manufacturing capacity, dependent on adversaries for products, BRICS nations moving away from the dollar (further weakening the dollar), stupidest administration in history of the country, thats just a fraction of why.

    Look at South Africa. How quickly it went from a first world nation with all the comforts to constant rolling blackouts, collapse of infrastructure and rivers of shit flowing through the streets. We arenít far off.

    If things go kinetic, it won't be like Lee vs Grant with uniformed armies fighting by orderly rules of war... it'll be more like the bastard product of an epic hate**** between Bosnia and Rwanda with the Irish Troubles as nursemaid and Iraq, Afghanistan and the various Latin American insurgencies as tutors. In a nutshell, life as we know it except for the lucky folks way out in the sticks with ranches would be pretty much over, and even they would still feel plenty of effects.

    Short version: "Bend over, put your head between your legs, and kiss your ass goodbye." Even if you DO survive you won't be the same person as you were before, and the world you once knew is never coming back.

    GAME OVER
    EVERYBODY LOSES

    I'll ask again this question I asked earlier in this thread: Better dead than Red, or better Red than dead?

    Everyday you have to or get to choose how you're going to live. Are you choosing to live your values or choosing to give them up because it's easier to go along.

    The truth is not without sacrifice and is seldom popular...

    Look no further than Jesus Christ, "I Am The Truth And The Light" and his own people killed him.
