Is there an issue or cirmcumstance that would lead to civil war in your country? Would you join in? Would you fight on the side of your country in all circumstances, or are their situations that would lead you to join the insurgency? For me, if the military was put on orders to fight against the people, I could end up a criminal. That is saying, I would use my knowledge and experience from the military to fight in civil war against it. Yes, I love my country and our U.S. Constitution, but if the military were ever ordered to take up arms against our own people, the only way to preserve both would be to fight against the unconstitutional action. Of course, never having been in that situation, this is only what I hope I'd do... but that's my position on that. ;~D How about you?

Ah, yes, there is always the option of merely bowing out of the fight completely. In many cases, that is the best... and what is best for our families is a good choice.

Possibly the issue of free speech and religion. Its not just the ultra right responsible for damage to this part of our freedoms, there are a lot of factions, the left, the right, the front, the back, the state government, the local government, courts, religious groups, political nonentities, and plenty more. A lot of them want to limit free speech so they can carry out agendas unopposed. "Hey nice, shiny power is out there! Let's see how many I can step on to get my share!" -_-. And I would indeed stand against all of them in the case of a civil war, or civil wars (*rolleyes*). Of course I would probably be jailed and executed by whatever side/idea wins out, but fine. I'd rather be me than some puppet. I certainly hope nothing drastic happens, but I'm slowly but surely seeing the prelude. Gah, and I promised myself more relaxing on this Labor Day weekend! I just can't stay away .

the last time we did it in England was in 1649, with the king fighting parliament. If civil war was to happen here again it will more likely be between muslims and the rest.

Yes, the seeds of WWIII are between cultures. If you ask me, WWIII has already started.

As far as I'm concerned, it is the job of the military to protect the people of the U.S. from tyranny both foreign and domestic...according to the Constitution that is exactly what our military is for. The words we should all be living by: "We the PEOPLE, in order to form a more perfect union, establish JUSTICE, ensure DOMESTIC TRANQUILITY, provide for the COMMON DEFENSE, promote the GENERAL WELFARE & SECURE the blessings of LIBERTY to ourselves and our POSTERITY, do ordain and establish this Consititution of the United States of America." Apparently the damn neocon elitists either haven't read that portion of the Constitution or they think we are too stupid to realize they are doing everything they can to obliterate our rights. I applaud your moral standing & agree that all of us, military or not, should fight against tyranny both foreign & domestic, but right now it's the domestic tyranny that has me worried. Thank you for everything you have done to contribute to my freedom & the freedom of my children & grandchildren.

and I thank you for your appreciation. What is it that could motivate you to join in a civil war.. for either side?

Hopefully it won't get that far, but it is starting to look like a possibility. That said, what would cause me to become involved? When they try to take my kid from me & separate me from my family, they have got a fight on their hands for sure. Other than that, if and when a war does break out between us and them, I've already chosen my side. I've chosen the side of the right to be free and live under the Constitution we currently have. The will to live & the right to do it as a free human being is enough for me...and should be enough for everyone. Unfortunately, it's going to take the Gestapo on people's doorsteps to raise that kind of fuss.

Totally agrees with Visitor. Of course there are tons of groups that simply do not care for the constitution as is. Its seen as an obstacle to power for many groups and people (yea even for alphabet soup news stations -_-). Others are just giant fakes that'll do whatever to set a sick and restricting agenda. I surely hope I don't wake up to the day where suppression squads make people "disappear" from their houses. Oh and totally agree with your self defense clause Visitor. Its why I'm armed, despite what people tell me. Nothing crazy, but I have the tools and the know how to defend myself and loved ones if necessary. ***Okay, gotta bow out from the thread. I swore I'd relax this weekend. Someone point me in the direction of some funny threads on mylot!***
