"SNIP.....

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said that House Democratsí ongoing inquiry into the presidentís dealings in the Ukraine is ďabout to push this country to a civil war if they were to get their wishes,Ē†The Hill†reports.

Said Gohmert: ďAnd if thereís one thing I donít want to see in my lifetime, I donít want to ever have participation in, itís a civil war. Some historian, I donít remember who, said, guns are only involved in the last phase of a civil war.Ē

....SNIP"

Conservatives in Alberta have been using Western Separation as a wedge isdue this election season. Doesn't the right have any other wedge issue left than civil war and separation?

4. let's just have an amiable divorce

they can keep the poverty stricken communities headed by cattle.


We can take technology, finance, people who can speak multiple languages and are not afraid of the future which may include the children in red counties and red states because they are already fleeing from the wasteland that is Trump america


We divide the national debt the senate seats...since if its good enough for the electoral college, its good enough for national debt.

They can align with Syria and Russia and North Korea, we will be allies with the west, the east, the south and all no oligarch parts of the globe.

5. Now, now

We need to understand people and where they're coming from. Don't you realize how condescending it is to denounce Rep. Gohmert's call to violence? It makes him and the people who support him feel really, really bad when you denounce violence. Makes them feel like they're saying or doing or thinking something wrong, like you're better than them because you don't advocate for violence against them.

7. What a dumbass. The red states are not contiguous anymore like the south was. There's no Mason-...

Dixon Line. I doubt the Army is going to side with trump instead of the Constitution as their oath calls for so who's going to fight Civil War 2.0, AR-15 toting, out-of-shape, camo-wearing, middle-aged white guys? They wouldn't last two weeks in the field against the Army.

10. It will be all fun and games for them until the black helicopters show up.

What is done to them at that point I could care less. Iíll just look the other way as they have when it was reverse.

12. Gohmert: " I don't want to ever have participation in ... a civil war."

You're a conservative Republican congressman. You don't want to serve in the military, period, much less take part in a war to protect and defend the Constitution, in accord with the oath of office you took.

13. Gohmert had better wise up real fast.

A ďcivil warĒ in the US will play out very similar to the one in the former Yugoslavia.

Just a warning to him.
