I don't know. Look at how many of the Jan. 6'ers were there with their mothers.

If @#$%& got real they'd crumble like a can of Natty.

Civil war takes 100,000s of rank and file. Insurgency requires that you sacrifice yourself. Guerilla warfare requires a lot of hiding. Go look at the body mass ratio at a Trump rally to see how sustainable that would be.

Anyway, they've been doing just fine eroding the country from within via the Senate and the courts. No need to take up arms.

Exactly, they're in a great position to establish minority rule by then. That'll solve most of their problems. Then we'll suddenly discover that all the stuff we've been stanning and angry about wasn't as important as we thought it was. Without power, you're nothing.

Guerrilla warfare perhaps; Cliven Bundy, Timothy McVeigh - style resistance and domestic terrorism.

I've been listening to the "It Could Happen Here" podcast
[www.iheart.com]

It doesn't take many true believes to destabilize a country. Jan 6 showed close we came. Basically one security guard's ingenuity and misdirection stopped the ZipTie and Noose crowd (a small number in a small number)from gaining control.

The last Civil War was led by traitors & deserters from the US Army (I'm looking at all those former statue subjects!)

If the election or Jan 6th had gone the other way, senior officers slow walking or refusing orders would not have been enough, they would have been been fired and replaced by Trumpzies in the ranks.



San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

They already have established minority rule in a good chunk of the country and even at the federal level that minority has managed to block many actions desired by the majority. In a large number of states they are in a position already to continue that as the redistricting from the 2020 Census takes place.
