According to a liberal friend, whose hatred for Trump borders on the irrational, he and his side are willing to engage in a civil war if Trump remains in office using the 12th Amendment... Ironically enough, my friends who are Trump supporters, are willing to do the same, should the now obviously massive low tech and high tech fraud steals the election from Trump... To both sides I say, NO. Engaging in fantasies of revolt and civil war, is void of any reasonable accounting for the catastrophic consequences of such a violent endeavor:
While the bullets are flying...
1. Whole country comes to a stop
2. Economy is totally destroyed
3. Nobody working but instead trying to survive day to day
4. No deliveries of consumable essentials such as gas, food and medicine
5. Power outages initially in areas consumed by armed conflict then spreading to rural areas as local governments breakdown
6. People in intensive care units will die by the thousands
7. People in need of medical treatment such as for Cancer and other life-threatening illnesses will die by the thousands
8. Local militias will take over their communities to protect them but some will degenerate into gangs killing their neighbors for resources and out of hatred for their political leanings
9. Military and Law enforcement will exceed their Constitutional limitations in an attempt to establish some resemblance or order
10. As essential services stop such as sanitation, thousands more will die of otherwise preventable diseases associated with unsanitary conditions
11. With the shutdown of electrical power, water treatment plants will no longer operate and people will die from ingesting contaminated water
12. Hundreds of thousands more will die from starvation, lack of medical treatment, lack of medicines, exposure to the elements, preventable diseases
13. Our Country would be vulnerable to foreign adversaries, and chaos will ensue, where our presence is necessary to keep the peace
14. In reality, the whole World is affected
EVERY HOUSEHOLD WILL LOSE ONE OR MORE MEMBERS AT LEAST, IF NOT ENTIRE FAMILIES! AND FOR WHAT? YOUR CANDIDATE LOST?
IF YOU THINK YOU CAN REMAIN NEUTRAL THINK AGAIN. EVERYONE WILL BE FORCED TO CHOOSE A SIDE...
ALL OF THIS DEATH, MISERY AND GRIEF IS WITHOUT TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE TENTHS, IF NOT HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS WHO WILL DIE FROM COMBAT RELATED INJURIES!
Don’t believe me? Ask the survivors of recent conflicts like Bosnia and Kosovo. The civil war between Serbs and Bosnians was a road map to what can happen here. SO NO TO THIS FANTASY OF VIOLENCE. WE MUST FIND ANOTHER WAY.
