#1 What grips me is that these people don't understand that Trump is their last hope. If he fails, the deplorables will be using the "progressives" for target practice.

#2 Lots of people believe the will isn't there anymore, that the people have had all that beat out of them. They fail to realize that we have simply been quitely seething, waiting for them to cross a final red line before something happens. If the Democrats win, I suspect they will do something that is going to trigger something nobody wants. Many still hope that we can vote our way out of this. I don't know anymore.

#4 They really do want a civil war (which by historical record is anything but civil).

#5 The huge irony is the left would have to hope for foreign intervention on their side in a real civil war. Who's going to do that? Russia and China have the motives but no way would they directly intervene. No way the Pentagon could allow that. So who steps up for the left in such a scenario? Mexico? Canada? The EU? (oh cripe I just got a stitch in my side from laughing...)

#6 I can see it all now:

"Man the digital barricades!"
"Uh, dude, someone shut off the internet."
"Well let's go get some refreshments."
"What do you mean the craft beer and avocado toast has run out?!?"

#7 Incidentally, Freshman Democrat Abigail Spanberger rode the "moderate" train in 2018 to oust conservative Republican Dave Brat in Virginia's 7th District.

In every pre-election interview and town hall, Spanberger touted her CIA background as a unique qualification in matters of national security. She promised to engage in civil discourse in her dealings with Republican members of Congress. She stayed far away from the "A" (abortion) word, sanctuary cities, and illegal immigration, couching her responses in the usual political double talk. The strategy worked, and it was due largely to one of her earliest supporters and trusted aides.

#8 Re #7. Many people want to be lied to. But they like to call it "their truth."

I'm pretty.
My breath does not smell.
I can save for retirement later.
I never make bad choices. (Well except for Bob, but I wound up with half his stuff and the black eye got better. The replacement tooth almost matches the rest...)

So you see what we are up against. Also Brat was the guy who beat Eric Cantor. Virgina is muy screwed up...

#9 I see a civil war being very short. But a lot of lefties refusing to accept they lost because there ws no battle, their side just quit. Black gangs didn't turn out to fight, they surrendered for food. That sort of thing.

#10 I disagree. Who ever dominates the stabilization will face an extended insurgency till it gets really nasty to end it (See - Iraq and Palestinian insurgencies). You got to remember a lot of Deep State to include the judiciary will be in the Left's corner, enough to undermine efforts of the Constitutionalists.

#12 Any time they spend trying to get the UN and EU involved is time wasted. All you need are people who know they will be executed if the lose on the other side.

#13 Red states and counties have the food and the guns. Even if folks continue fighting for decades 99% of any conflict will be over very quickly without a lot of gunplay.

My only problem is that hard lessons aren't really learned in that sort of scenario and so the problem will re-appear again and again.

#14 Hard solutions are a necessity. Comsymp mass elimination will focus "independents" minds.

#15 I'd say make sure the cares that execute academics are all black. "But, but, I belong to BLM!" Bang.

#17 And yes, steal their terminology and tactics. Make them die in the presence of what they jerk off to.

#18 Perhaps time we all review history of Spanish Civil War

#19 Agreed, Rex. No good outcomes there. Or here, if we wind up going that way.

#20 #13 Red states and counties have the food and the guns.


The peasants of the Soviet Union and China had most of the food in their day as well.

What matters is recruitment and organization of talent, tools, will and ruthlessness.

So far, the left is ahead on most of those factors.
