Since 2009, the thought of the next civil war has from time to time popped into my head.
On November 8, 2016 by electing Donald J. Trump the 45th president of the United States, Americans, in overwhelming numbers (screw the popular vote) rejected Communism which I see as the equivalent of Kurt Russell’s character, Wyatt Earp bitch slapping Bill Bob Thornton’s character, Johnny Tyler in the move, Tombstone, and ordering Tyler out of town.
I suspect that many Communists do as well because still today, July 31, 2018, i.e., 629 days later, Communists not just in America but globally and collaborators running the swamp remain as outraged are hell bent on burning the country to the ground. Everyday that has goes by, a new flame is sparked by entities that have nothing in common with American values, our love of God, family, country, independence, freedom, honor and duty.
These entities are determined to force us to become beholden to a one world government, i.e., Communism as they strive to overthrow Capitalism. Therefore, to ignore the likelihood of a second civil war is to go about with blinkers on.
I ran across an article this morning by H. W. Crocker III at The American Spectator which is definitely worth checking out entitled, America’s Next Civil War Will Be Worse Than Our Last. Excerpt below:
In the summer of 1862, just weeks before the Battle of Sharpsburg (or Antietam) — the bloodiest single day of fighting in American history — Union Captain George Armstrong Custer attended the wedding of Confederate Captain John “Gimlet” Lea at Bassett Hall in Williamsburg, Virginia, as best man. The Union officer was dressed in blue, the Confederate officer in grey, and Custer being Custer spent the next two weeks flirting with the Southern belle cousin of the bride, even joining her in singing “Dixie.”
At one point she told him, “You ought to be in our army.”
“What would you give me if I resigned my commission in the Northern army and joined the Southern?”
“You are not in earnest, are you?”
He wasn’t, of course. Custer was nothing if not loyal, and he believed that he was bound to the Union by the oath he had sworn at West Point, whatever his affection for Southern officers and their ladies[…]
I urge you to read this article in its entirety.
