We are not going to have widescale, heavily armed engagements. We are going to enter a few decades of simmering violence with escalating acts of revanchism and street actions. Think Northern Ireland…Or Rome before Caesar destroyed the Republic.

I always have this thought at the back of my head - what if the US falls almost the exact same way as Rome? A sad tale of history repeating itself once again.

Considering we aped so much of the Roman Republican structure — right down to judicial review, separation of powers, term limits and codified statutory law — it would be very fitting. In 30 generations, it will make fascinating reading for the students in their classroom on Mars

Yes, American didn’t want to be British any more so they decided to copy Rome. How original. But America isn’t exactly Rome for Rome had spread civilization all over the world while America makes everyone hates civilization. It’s a mistake for British and many others to consider America part of Anglosphere or Island nations or whatever. America is a continental power just like Europe, China, Russia and they had already proven themselves to be authoritarian state who would deny you constitutional right of independence because they think they had the moral high ground. I used to think America is like Rome before Caesar but now I see it more as fall of the Empire.

Americans will be too fat to do this in another decade

I think the real action will begin -presuming the GOP achieves their goal of installing the president by committee instead of election, or fail in their next attempt and return power to the democrats- when various states begin rejecting federal government jurisdiction. It will start with ICE or the EPA, and then the FBI, SEC and eventually the IRS. At that point the union will begin to crumble in earnest.

I certainly hope there isn’t going to be one

Americans are far too comfortable for a civil war.

I only want to see Civil War 2 if we go back to using muzzle loaders and cannons. Save the good weapons for WWIII vs China.

There’s gonna be a war somewhere soon. Maybe a Civil War. Maybe a war with China. Maybe something completely out of left field, maybe Zanzibar is found to have giant robots that shoot nuclear missiles

For a “war”, it’ll be short lived. Only one side believes in gun ownership lol

If "rioters" are willing to bounce into the capitol before ancoms, ancoms aren't going to do shit. And maga 2nd amd. conservatives are just waiting on the ancoms and 'militant' BLM types, so of course nothing is going to happen.

I am so disappointed. Oh the popcorn I would devour.
