#1 Coming? It has been in play for decades, all that remains is when will it go hot.

#2 Washington's Republicans and Democrats alike have become the toll collectors on the road to serfdom--and the road to Rosario.
Try as I may, I cannot think of a more fitting analogy.

#4 The Left openly fantasizes violence against us. All that remains is shooting back.

#5 The left thinks war, civil or otherwise, is a video game. The right, with almost universal personal, familial or community experience with real war, knows it is not.

All the more likely the Left will start one, and all the more reason for us to prepare.

#7 Yet as an economic and social enterprise, government creates nothing.
Reminds me of an expression I learned on the pipeline years ago. The back end of the pipeline eats up the front end of the pipeline. In other words, the costs becomes prohibitive to stay in business. The costs of government make it prohibitive to continue. It appears that it is not too big to fail. Hell, it already appears to have failed. It does little well except tax and spend. We have created an elite political class that is unresponsive to the people.

#8 The first Civil War was a Constitutional issue over States' Rights widin the US Federal Union of States, among other - so will be the Second Civil War, BUT NOW ALSO UNDER VEE OWG + OWG NAU I.E. "GLOBAL FEDERAL UNION".
* IRONY > USA = "GREY/CONFEDERATE ARMY"; PRO-OWG ANTI/NON-AMERICAN WORLD NATIONS = "BLUE/UNION ARMY"???
IOW, ANY US-SPECIFIC "CIVIL WAR II" = JUST THE BEGINNING OF A LARGER "NATIONALISM-VS-GLOBALISM", "GLOBAL-CONFEDERATISM-VS-GLOBAL FEDERALISM", SOVEREIGNTY-VS-ANTI-SOVEREIGNTY CRISES OR CONFLICTS FOR CONTROL OF THE PLANET FOR SPACE???
The pressures or agendas involved are MANY, DYNAMIC, + DIFFERENTIATED, + WID MUCHO "GREY AREAS/LINES".
E.G. NEW YEAR 2013 = THE DRIVE BY US POLITICOS TO IMPOSE OVERT SOCIALISM [OWG, "Globalism"] ON AMERICA + AMERICAN SOCIETY, + OUTSIDE OF THE US CONSTITUTION OR NATIONWIDE POPULAR REFERENDUM(S), IS NOT LIKELY TO STOP IN 2013 IRREGARDLESS OF WHETHER THERE IS MAJOR US-VS-IRAN ANDOR US-VS-CHINA MILITARY CRISIS OR WAR THIS SUMMER.
Whatever the "pecking order" was for $$$, resources, + influence, etc. before OWG + OWG NAU, it'll be MUCH WORSE, NOT BETTER, for all World Govts-States, Societies, + Individuals under OWG + OWG NAU, etc. related.
IMO, iff US State-Local Govts are going to demand formal secession from the US Fed in Washington, events which must occur any "Civil War II", it will begin in 2014 as determined by what happens this year in 2013 vee both the US-World Economy + espec FOREIGN POLICY/AFFAIRS AS HISTORY SAYS THAT DOMESTIC ECON MORASS OR CHAOS BY ITSELF IS USUALLY NOT ENUFF TO INDUCE ARMED REVOLUTION = CIVIL WAR.
