    Some people think it will. Endless Thread did an episode on it and some think it creep up on America and before people know it there will be a full blown war. Some think it won't be a full blown war but something like the troubles in Ireland. You'll have plenty of bomb attacks from both parties but no real fighting.

    The question is do Democrats and Republicans hate each so much that they'd be willing to kill one another?

    Well i think thats quite possible. Im not American, but i think Trump is a huge problem for most of polititians, bankers etc. Thats why media and Hollywood are totally against him. Also, what happened few months ago due to Floyd's murder , which was totally scripted in my opinion(both murder and riots) makes me think that situation could easily bacame very bad.

    Nah. Most people are just trying to earn a living. What's much more likely than a full blown civil war is a lot of riots.

  4. In case Trump loses he won't stop at anything to remain in power. He's already claiming the election is rigged. So far, his allies in media and politics haven't challenged his blatant lies (as usual) and his fans seem to eat them all up (as usual). It might certainly get ugly. But as an optimist I believe that people will come to their senses if things progress that far.

    I hope not. Any civil war in the US would be rough. I'd wager we are the most armed civilian populace in the world. I'd say 80% of the people I know are very well armed and have lots and lots of ammo. :)

    Also, I'd say we were closer to civil war in the 60s and it didn't happen then. As long as nobody disrupts Amazon Prime Delivery, cancels the NFL, or denies us another stimulus check before Christmas we'll be fine.
