Skip to comments.We're now one step closer to America's coming civil war

The New Year has started with a monstrosity of a budget deal, one that proves that neither political party, Democrats or Republicans, is really serious about controlling the growth of big government.
But soap opera dramatics about fiscal "cliffs" and sequestration shouldnt deflect from where President Obama is really taking this country. Consider this story from the Wall Street Journal a few days before Christmas:
Thousands of people in several Argentine cities ransacked supermarkets for a second day in the latest challenge to President Chistina Kirchner, who is struggling to revive a weak economy...In the central city Rosario, two people were killed during the incidents and 137 people arrested.
The violence puts Mrs. Kirchner in a difficult position as the poor are [her] core constituents...Her government spends billions of dollars a year to help low income families, including free health care...[Yet] Argentine activists who claim to represent the poor traditionally block access to supermarkets in the month of December to demand free food and other items...The latest events were some of the worst acts of looting and vandalism in years.... Local media showed dozens of men, women, and children hauling away televisions, refrigerators, and food.
Some have said my warnings about a coming civil war between makers and takers are exaggerated. Its true that Argentinas politicians have been waging class warfare since Juan and Eva Peronand they arent fazed when it turns bloody. Obama and the Democrats are relative newcomers to the game. But Argentina reveals who really suffers when those who create a nations wealth get mugged by those who spend itas just happened this week in Washington.

Surely you jest.
Soros will be exempt.
Obama will be exempt.
Pelosi will be exempt.
Reid will be exempt.
Need I continue?
IMHO a constitutional convention is the last thing we would want.
For one example - Do you think something like the 2nd ammendment would survive a rewrite of the constitution when we have an electorate dumb enough to elect Obama twice? When we have federal, state and local governments rushing to use the reaction to the recent school shooting to pass more gun control laws?
Imagine what a new constitution written and approved by our current moocher, politically correct culture would look like,
Oh no, no constitutional convention, no sir. Not with the current make-up of the country and states. A new Constitution would read like a thousand-page-long transcript of Occupy Wall Street protest speeches and would completely and perfectly invert “rights” and “wants” just for starters.
You might want to look at the most extreme conservative actions ever taken. Singapore’s government is the most extreme conservative case that I know about. During the threat of communism they locked up the socialists and communist that were government officials. Ever since then the conservatives has been in control.
It is not that they don't think their government suffers from corruption. If you are fortunate enough to have a Singaporean friend, they will freely volunteer the excesses of their own government. But they are also willing to cut them some slack due to the bigger picture of keeping the Communist disease out.
The day will come that we will have to take similar drastic action if we wish our nation to recover from the terminal disease it has voted into office.
Git thee to thy health club...or go for a jog at the very least.;-)
Staying in as good a physical condition is absolutely mandatory and necessary to ride out this depression/obamageddon
“Do not give up your guns! NEVER!
The American citizenry is the best armed infantry in the world.
Once the guns get handed in, we are sitting ducks.
Expect no less than what the Jews got in the holocaust.”
You’re exactly right. There’s a reason why murderers and tyrants want you defenseless and unarmed. History is full of these examples—we have no exemptions to the lessons of history by virtue of being an American. It can and is happening here.
That’s what I said, the little guys always lose, besides, if we did have a civil war, it probably wouldn’t be in the near enough future for any of these people to be involved.
I say it bodes "Hope and Change".
The word "everyday" is an adjective.
Do you know the difference between "everyday" and "every day?"
Folks like him should be given an "opt out" from paying into something they'll never use (but they have to be barred from using it).
Only 3% actually took up arms and fought the British.
There needn’t be a civil war,this is a weak administration backed by a weak legislature.Given time,it will collapse,the real effort needs to be in pushing the administration and the Congress that comes after this one into repealing the left’s idiotic advances.
Otherwise I don’t see this government triumphing over the American people even though most don’t seem willing to openly oppose it,neither are they very happy with it.Let the idiots running this country flounder and then drown,then find someone willing to fix the damage they’ve caused.
Well, everyone EXCEPT your darling daughter of course. /s
And that won't be more than five years from now. I say three.
The problem that the State has is that of investment dollars for private ownership of legal goods. I have not seen an estimate of how much money has been spent by Ameicans for arms and ammo but it must be astronomical!
People are not give up their monetary investment without a fight and most especially when it deals with giving up 2nd Amendment rights along with it.
Wow. Reminds me of Churchill’s quote of ‘So many owing so few’.
People are entitled to the money government steals from them IF they meet the requirements the government sets for getting it back? Maybe people are also allowed to collect on insurance claims given an a government approved claim from a policy that government makes them purchase -sound familiar?
You sound like a leftist.
How about people are entitled to their money and government is NOT!
One does not change the corrupt system by becoming a useful idiot willingly participating in it.
We’ll just have to wait and see.
We’ll just have to wait and see.
And the folks are not buying weapons because they fear crime.
If you are in the market, do the research...great AR-15 for the money.
familyop ~ : “ Most members of Congress are in an occupation where many call themselves, “Esquire.” They do special tasks for special constituents.”
Quite the contrary .. they call themselves :” Honorable”
Esquire is limited to the liar ( lawyer ) profession , or to Irish ancestory of a land title holder.
There is nothing ‘honorable’ about politics in Washington D.C., especially in the last four years or more .
My gun is too heavy.
an My back hurts
an I had to sleep on the ground last nite.
The next revolution is three missed meals away.
And most of them are lawyers.
I look forward to learning of your experience with your WW AR15 MPC.
I will email Jim Rob tomorrow to see if this can be resolved.
In the meantime...stay armed and ready.;-)
After 25 years at a good paying job, she should have been able to care for herself for a year.
I’ve been unemployed. Considered myself a perfect example of what was wrong with the unemployment system.
No representation without taxation
Interesting sentiment, but methinks it would play out in a way not to your liking.
Leftists are masters of the one-off. Your tax would be lowered to zero...but your employer’s tax increased to match...oh, sorry, you don’t get to vote! A modest tax on entitlements/welfare enacted...oh, look who can vote!
Old and fat men are good for at least one ambush. If not that then we at least know they won’t be chasing after the good guys.
People are entitled to their money—especially money they paid into a system against their will
"It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonoured by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.
Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter'd your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?
Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil'd this sacred place, and turn'd the Lord's temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress'd, are yourselves gone!
So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors. In the name of God, go!"
Some things never change.
