What do they want wtih Roberts?
Well folks this is very much like the hot summer of 1859.

Some contest, a yuong laywer from a nwe fangled party (GOP) was running for the Presidency. He was seen as a radical by some in the States Rights Community. He won, and over the next year there were threats to his life, and things unravelled pretty fast. Before the nation knew it, there were troops marching and people dying.

If it does not feel to you as if this is the end game, I don't know what it will take. They have been fighitng this "culture war" another name for a COLD civil war, for years. It haeted up in 1998.. and now this is the end game a hot civil war... or the death of the GOP.

I have no words for those who cannot see what is going on and insteand choose to once again apease them. We will soon have to choose, but I fear this republic cannot and will not stand, for their end goal has been division and division of this sort usually leads to a hot civil war... this is I suspect not exactly what they wanted, for a civil war cannot be controlled, but it is coming... one more nail on the coffin of the Republic and that silver sliver of water you see in the distance is the Rubicon we crossed a while ago.

"..that silver sliver of water you see in the distance is the Rubicon we crossed a while ago."

I hope it does not fade from sight - otherwise we will truly be lost.
