My prediction: some unhinged lunatic RWNJ (pardon the triple redundancy) will finally snap and will go all Breivik on some unfortunate group of perceived enemies -- and that will mark the end of all this "civil war" and secession nonsense.

Sadly, I think you've found a winning horse, there.

if that happens, then the political machine of the fed will lose.
People overwhelmingly do not sacrifice their careers for their "isms." They will stay enlisted and do as they are ordered, in this case, apprehend a straggly band of armed red necks who don't have their priorities straight.

Nowadays, air conditioning keeps southerners from turning into the stupid hotheads they were in the civil war.

Assuming the military will even need to be troubled to show up. These straggly armed idiots are nothing the police forces can't handle.

But it's the hounds under the porch I feel for.

People generally defend what they believe in - that alone doesn't make them right or admirable. It's the beliefs and actions that count. Is collateral damage okay in some situations and not okay in others?
