is the USA headed for civil war? would you fight?
    #1831839 - 08/20/03 01:36 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

and if so, whose side would you be on? of course, if depends on the circumstances, but you can still give qualified replies. if the peta people + the pot people + the black nationalists teamed up, I could see some shit going down... and I'd be willing to overlook some ideological conflicts if it meant an end to the police state.

No, not any time soon. I would most likely be on the side the majority of the people would be on. The current governments side.

There are hardly any mass riots fuelled by policy in the United States, why would a civil war seem probable.

these gun-laws they're slipping under people's noses should soon prohibit any type of effective citizen revolt; just like the Nazis did..

Whatever side the hippies, Peta People and black nationalists were on i'd be on the other side. But we all know that all three would be comprised of the weakest of society so it would be a slaughter.

no way the black nationalists could overthrow by themselves. they got soul.

if there was a committed terrorist group within the US, the administration would freak out and alienate all the liberals. (the cons, of course, would love it.) it's be marshal law and shit, and that's when revolutions happen.

police state:
I throw a molotov cocktail at the precinct, you know how we think
Organize the hood under i ching banners
Red, black and green instead of gang bandanas
F.b.i. spyin on us through the radio antennas
And them hidden cameras in the streetlight watchin society
With no respect for the people's right to privacy
I'll take a slug for the cause like huey p.
While all you fake niggaz {*unnngh*} try to copy master p
I want to be free to live, able to have what i need to live
Bring the power back to the street, where the people live
We sick of workin for crumbs and fillin up the prisons
Dyin over money and relyin on religion for help
We do for self like ants in a colony
Organize the wealth into a socialist economy
A way of life based off the common need
And all my comrades is ready, we just spreadin the seed

Are you implying that there is a difference between the republicrates and the whining liberals?

I like black people so i think i would concentrate my shots on the hippies and peta/greenpeace people, especially the hippies.

Why would 'hippies', PETA people, and Black Nationalists band together inthis hypothetical scenario anyway? Why not Mexican illegals, sun tan lotion models, and harpsichord players?

Actually it's the needle-pointers you've got to watch out for.

Those old ladies are crazy.

They are pretty fucked up, they play it cool like 'Oh, we're just a bunch of little old ladies doing needlepoint', and then when your back is turned they're pulling your pants down, packing your ass with plastic explosives, and blowing your whole ass off. That's why I kill 'em on site, can't be too careful.
