DU POLL: Do you think republicans are trying to spark another civil war? I base this on

the "old" republicans versus the "new republicans. When one stops and looks at what they are trying to do it's damn strange. I'm not saying all of the GOP is that way, but I sure wonder about some of the GOP.

12. Yep, I think that's the best assessment of it all. They want masses of low wage earners they

can rule and profit from ... and we know how well that works from history.

heyday of the Klan which was in the thirties, around the same time Hitler rose to power in Germany.

15. History?

Like shortly after Lincoln, yeah, maybe. Ok there were some dixiecrats, but that assertion in modern times is laughable.

7. No, they're just trying desperately to profit from any dissension they can stir up.

Let's hope their time is running out.

9. The GOP 1% is always trying to fire up a base that has little self-interest in making the 1% richer,

so they have come up with an unending series of distractions for the base to keep their own profits up.

11. i think the ruling class (not just republicans) is doing economic restructuring. in some cases the

 

consequences are so grave that one might think they were trying to break up the US & the international order, foment revolution, etc.

we can only guess if that's the case.

They want masses of low wage earners they can rule and profit from ... and we know how well that works from history.

There are extremely troubling times.
