As the richer become richer and the poor population grows tension could become tight. Do you think it possible that a civil war could start in the US. And what would be the reasons behind it. Or is this a hero theme scenario only used in Holywood movies like Captain America and has nothing to do with reality. A civil war is something from the past we've outgrown it.

interesting point you've got there about the middle class uprising. Often it's the students too who start with demonstrations and actions.
Look at who owns the guns. Look at who's been screwed the most by the American government. They've screwed no one more than the middle class.
If there's going to be a civil war, it's start with them this time.
Students will be in "safe places".
Are you talking about the white middle class or the black middle class, or is it indifferent.
The war, if there is going to be one, isn't here yet. Civil unrest leads to civil war but you will know when civil war is here because it will be heralded by declaration of martial law, make no mistake about that.
It's just around the corner, Tamara.
We'll see how your prediction works out.
Me thinks Trump by a landslide.
In a civil war, no one wins. it's neighbour against neighbour and never black and white / right or wrong. unrest is not the same as civil war. I hope things won't escalate whoever will win.
I want Trump to win to end the establishment support of the liberal bullies. Then the violence stops.
Yeah, he won't put up with that crap.
You think Tamara when Trump wins the violence stops? Is Trump himself not a violent men?
You hear of Trump telling his supporters to incite violence at clinton rallies?
You see Trump supporters ripping up signs for hillary killary clinton?
You see middle class whites burning and looting?
Kind of sums up who's violent
I'm not going into a political argument Trump vs Clinton. There are other questions on Hubpages that will. At the moment I do not think the civil war is already in the US and I hope it never will. but the question remains. can there be one?
It is very possible that civil war could break out in the U.S..
Citizens will tolerate tyranny only to a point. When they have nothing to lose, which is not far away, then anything is possible.
I hope not John, a civil war is the most terrible thing that can happen to a country. Nobody wins, everybody looses and it can continue for years. And most of the time in the end a tyrant will stand up and take control, back to square one.
no by a civil war I meant. neighbour against neighbour. groups against groups. like fascists against left wing or christians against jews against muslims against black against white.
Very easily this could happen.
The left would lose - they'd want safe zones that the armed citizens would just ignore.
But, yeah, very possible groups or sects against each other.
That's good to hear. A political power based upon extreme ideas may it be religion or ideology always ends up in blood crimes.
The difference is that barring a lone insane man every few years, there are no Christians killing for Christ, but it happens thousands of times a year in 2016 by Muslims. So you have a false equivalence here.
