I don't hear anyone talking about Civil War, especially on the Right. The premise of the thread is false.

I do hear people on the Left using profanity, threatening, and screaming about taking away people's rights.

You know who they are on city-data. it gives the impression they are far more prevalent then they are, because they are so vocal and obsessed with their guns and racial animosity and reactionary mindset.
Here's the thing about that. Their fantasies of fighting a tyrannical govt whenever they decide to "come for their guns" will come to an abrupt end once they realize they will have to shoot and kill the same local LEOs that they hold so dear and cheer for. Because local LEOs are the ones who will be coming to confiscate. Not "the left". Not some boogie/phantom army men. Think they're mentally prepared for that? Absolutely not.

Ever hear of surplus value of labor?

Whatever, don't let my logical questioning get in the way of your eloquence.
However, they don't have a filibuster proof majority. A non filibuster proof majority is of limited benefit, especially within a caucus that is less apt to fall in line behind leadership when leadership 'tells them to jump'.

AR 15 does not stand a chance uavs, A 10, submarines, B 52 and nukes. For a good example. Check out the Syrian civil war where rebels can not beat the Syrian Arab Army.

It's not complicated. RWNJs are shaking in their boots. America is changing and they don't want to go along with it. They see tRump under siege and extrapolate his troubles to their own. After all, he's the "savior of white christianity" that they placed all their hopes and dreams into.

He was "ordained by god" according to some of them.

You just can't make this stuff up.

Then you have no knowledge of history, and insurgent war. Who says the entire military would be on one side?

This is literally the worst type of posting. No one is going to do your homework for you. This site has a pretty good search function.

This guy who listened to NRA talking points bought an assault rifle and murdered 3 Pittsburgh police officers.
The "Obama gun ban was on the way" is what he posted on Stormfront.
