Does it Take Another Civil War?

Politics

To think that twenty young children massacred in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14 would become catalysts to accelerate the continuing disintegration of American society was unconscionable on December 14th - and it remains unconscionable. While the nation fell into shock followed by grief, many wrote on the web, "Obama's gonna take away guns!" The narcissism of "2nd Amen" cultists is without boundaries it appears; to wit: the NRA rallies.


The goal to divert attention away from those child victims of guns in order to refocus it on themselves (the firearms industry and their plebian Constitutionalists), to protecting gun-owner "rights" and their guns, and now to posture themselves and their constituents as victims, is more than criminal, it's barbaric. It's fascistic. It's evil!

America holds its military arsenal against the heads of all nations in the world, and the NRA holds theirs against the America people. Twenty children, looking down from the Heavens, must realize they are not to blame for blood that will be shed when guns meet guns to resolve what legislatures would not - and that time is imminent. This isn't about the Constitution; this is about control of America by a most dark and insidious zeitgeist ever to visit the land and one that is drafted from the legions of Hell.

When peace-loving Americans get angry enough at "NRA-2nd Amen" specious rhetoric, threats and inflammatory actions, and then follow suit by taking up gun themselves, you will have what historians call Civil War. Hoping this does not occur, the ingredients are in place for it, having been engineered, exacerbated and invoked by the GOP, The John Birch Society, Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, the Rupert Murdoch machine, Rand Paul and billionaire Rightists. From the day Barack Obama became President, America's "shadow rebels", militarists, Birchers, theocrats, bigots and racists gained unavoidable visibility. The Great Society has been transformed into The John Birch Society - and even William F. Buckley is turning in his grave. From here, it progresses to fascism.

As in all civil and international wars, the victorious are industrialists, vulture capitalists, profiteers, bankers and oligarchs who shield themselves from the cross-fire, who provoke the insanity of war through hate-media, propaganda, conspiracy theories, paranoia, fear, lies, distortions, demagogues and religionists. They, the rich and privileged, bankroll the entire death operation. The millions who "sacrifice" their lives go unpaid, and soon forgotten. Survivors remember them and honor their "heroism", and this is to justify sacrificing their own children in future wars.

They thought it was about patriotism, God and country, but it was only about money - the victor's money.

Better to die an unpatriotic pacifist without blood on your hands, then to live and never be able to wash it off.

Its Like A Dictatorship

In a dictatorship we have one person calling the shots for the millions. So the real question is ...why are 4 million NRA members telling over 300 million Americans what to do?

And why does congress listen to the 4 million as opposed to the 300 million ?

And yes this is a situation which can lead to civil war.
