    Do you think we will suffer from a civil war in America because or the two parties differences?

    This is my biggest fear.. that we will implode. Our children deserve a future.
    Hate breeds war.

    Well MindyJGirl, what is happening now is a controlled economic implosion of the US and global economies. This will unfortunately lead to conflict within our own country, much like what is happening elsewhere around the globe. Does this mean a civil war like what occured in the 19th century? I honestly don't think so. Unfortunately it'll be far worse than that prospect. Because the government has grown at such an exponential rate, and this is why you can't do anything without government nods.

    What it's leading to is more than likely going to be rioting and US military intervention on our streets to curb this. Of course there will be a lot of violence.

    But this is what happens when we go into a "hot tryanny." On the same lines as Stalin, Hitler, or Mao. Only in our case here in the west, it is a scientific tyranny something the tyrants of old could have never dreamed of.

    None of us really has a future, we are nearing complete insolvency as a country. The easy days as Americans as we have enjoyed for over 200 years, is rapidly coming to a close. Godspeed to all!

    When America suffers another event as significant as the Civil War, it was be because the country has totally fallen into chaos...much worse than what is going on in Egypt. How, you might ask could we ever reach that point?  It's simple...take away life's seemingly taken for granted things and chaos quickly ensues....runaway pricing inflation, food costs soaring beyond reach, gasoline too expensive for the drive to work, electricity unaffordable...lights out, in the dark, hungry, and wandering where to head next. Man's survival instincts kick in and soon it is every man for himself...the strong surviving the longest. Hopefully we don't live to see that day but that is the way I imagine things could go. WB

    The US will not have a civil war.  However, civil unrest could very well result from the fact that the public employee government worker) and their unions are paid double that of their private employee (company employees) counterparts and they refuse to give up their super fat pensions and super high salaries.

    The political situation is worrying. However we should remind ourselves of history. Political conflict of today is nothing compared to what the politicos got up to centuries past. I don't think there's anything issue strong enough to actually break America in two as there was in the 1860s.

    Very possible, but a better question would be this:  "do you believe that the mass media is intentionally trying to create a political civil war with a false idea concerning a two party divide in America?"

    I would not call it 'civil', nor do I think there will be a particular political agenda to blame.

    What concerns me, is  a natural catasrophe that ruins our water, oil, or food supplies.  While there is plenty of food available in the USofA, should we run out of oil, transporting it becomes a problem.

    We should already be concerned about clean potable water, most of us are not yet.

    The shift to renewable energy from oil is not happening quickly enough.

    Even mild mannered people will turn ugly and violent when facing water and food shortages.   Coupled with the rampant crime, disquiet with government, immigration problems, lack of social resources..............yes, I think there will be a new revolution in America.

    What, I do not know, is when it will happen.  It may not effect your children or mine.  But I can not promise this.

    We will not suffer a civil war because of the two parties. We will suffer a war because of the two classes. The havenots will get tired of the haves. Already the camel is overloaded. It just requires one final straw.

    I agree with Wesman Todd Shaw. The media is far too powerful. Rupert Murdoch would make an excellent Bond villain.

    We better not because foreign powers and Nato could attack Washington DC, try to kill our president, destroy our  manufacturing  abilities and stop us from waging war.

    There will always be high political debate there has been since the creation of two parties.  If there is a civil war it will be because of race or money.  These are the two agendas that breed anger more than anything else.  As this nation becomes more and more economical deficiant the fight over who gets what becomes a big picture.  The tide is turning on who is the majority and when that is done there will be a lot of anger for the ones who have been on top.

    I don't think so.  I think that the excesses of the extreme right will discredit it before we reach such a point--willful ignorance of fact does not make for good public policy.  However, there are tough times ahead, for various perfectly predictable reasons--a cresting global population, combined with growing prosperity in many of the world's most populous countries, is about to collide with limited resources and the growing effects of climate change.  Combine that with aging demographics and financial stresses in the rich world, and there's going to be a lot of dislocation over the coming decades.
