Civil War En Route?

I keep seeing this meme more and more on the Internet, or at least on the blogosphere:

We as a Nation are more divided than ever before.

A Civil War is inevitable.

It’s gonna be those who love Freedom (at least OUR brand of freedom) versus those nanny-statist bastards!

And, I try console myself into thinking, “No, that won’t happen – we are too great a Nation with too much going for us to have it happen!”

But then I see stuff about the sheeple meekly lining up to have their Fourth Amendment rights shorn from them, or demanding ‘the government’ do something to protect help medicate  pay for take care of them.

And something like THIS (a comment on a gun control article in the Washington Post):

I would settle for a background check for each and every transaction and every gun owner needing to have a complete comprehensive psychiatric examination before the initial purchase and check-up every 3-years thereafter. If you fail the psych test, your a prohibited person and must surrender your guns to law enforcement. Better yet, the psych test is given at police headquarters and if you fail they return home with you and confiscate your guns. Penalties must be increased for a prohibited person having a gun any gun. Police must also have the discretion to conduct Terry Stops and warrant less searches in targeted areas looking for illegal guns. I like Washington DC’s policy if you have a empty shell casing without a firearm id card for that weapon you go to jail for years. Also if you have a permit for a 9mm and you get caught with a empty 380 casing, you go to jail. If this does not significantly reduce the gun violence epidemic in this country, we all know what’s next.

A mandatory psych test given at police headquarters?  Warrantless searches and confiscations?  Terry ‘stop and frisk’ searches at the ‘discretion of law enforcement?

Settle for?!

This ‘Italian Rose’ certainly sounds learned in the basics of criminal law, minus the whole Constitutional protections part.  Not unlike The President and the Attorney General.

And here’s the accompanying Gallup Poll results:

When did we become voluntary Pla-Do for the American Stasi?  And what should we do about it?

  1. Civil war or rebellion?
    Who is seen as the enemy? One’s fellow citizens or the authority?

    • One man’s rebel is another’s freedom fighter. Guess it depends which side you are on.
      G. Washington and Co. would have been hanged for treason, had the Revolutionary War gone differently.
      And Castro ‘won’ on his island…

  2. I’m trying to think of a significant spy/traitor/Ft Hood shooter, etc that hadn’t undergone an extensive background check for national security purposes. Why would I think a presumably less thorough check for “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” would be more effective?

  3. we all know what’s next
    Yes, we do know.
    To make it easier to identify us gunnies, we should get some neat state supplied logos to sew on our clothes.
    How ’bout a logo tattoo? Wouldn’t that be cool!!

    Maybe the ‘Italian Roses’ will be waving and cheering the Reichssicherheitshauptamt if the feces hits the air handler.
    Stand front and center please.

  4. Yep, inch by inch until it’s TOO LATE… And those numbers are scary!

  5. I am seriously stealing that chicken poster!

    But to what Tomi posted, The Revolutionary war was a rebellion, not a civil war. The Americans fought British soldiers, not their fellow citizens. there were no “Americans” then (at least in any sense we know). The colonists were British subjects, and they were fighting British subjects. The colonists were fighting their lawful government.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
