Any upcoming civil war in the US will not be fought over geography. It will be fought over political ideology just like they have been in many other countries.

The Right VS Left War will be very short lived. Left does not stand a chance.
So you're suggesting that an all-out civil war, with literally neighbors taking up arms against neighbors in every city in the country, is more likely than a civil war fought over resources? Or are you just taking this thread as an opportunity to take a stab at liberals?

yeah just what we need, a right wing New World Order. How lovely!

there would surely be balkanization before a purely right wing conservative takeover of the nation.

There are people in Louisiana who talk secession as it's own nation. In fact there's a thread right here on City Data about it.

Not secede, but California is the most likely to be kicked out.

Barring some sort of longterm cataclysm, this country is not going to break apart. Specifically, regarding secession, no state has the right to unilaterally leave. Perhaps, in theory, there could be a negotiated separation, but both Congress and the individual state would need to come to an agreement and it would need to be done via duly enacted legislation after many things are considered including: disposition/payment for federal assets in that state, citizenship of the state's citizens who do not favor leaving, citizens of that state currently serving in the US military, diplomatic issues, conditions for back and forth movement of citizens between that state and the US to work and visit family etc. And lots more that I don't feel like typing out right now.

The idea that any state can just vote tomorrow and, boom, they're independent is unrealistic, unwise, impractical, and illegal.
