IS WAR INEVITABLE?

BRYCE ON POLITICS

– Will the Union survive?

These are troubling times. We have Islamic terrorists who would like nothing better than to snuff out the rest of the world. We have a tin-horn dictator in North Korea with access to nuclear devices. And we have other crackpot third world regimes thirsty for power and enslave their people. At home, we have two diametrically opposed ideologies at each other’s throats, with no room for compromise. It occurred to me recently we have been hearing these same stories day after day for quite some time now.

Now the big question, does anybody see this changing for the better any time soon? Seriously. There is no doubt we could eliminate key world leaders and terrorists if we had the will to do so, but what about at home? Liberals won’t be satisfied until they usurp the U.S. Constitution. The election of Donald Trump as president was a major setback for them and they are now desperate to take the government by hook or by crook. They have opened their bag of dirty tricks and will literally say and do anything to reverse the control by the Republicans.

They are making a mistake though; Middle America is growing weary of their “resistance,” which includes protests, anarchy, stalling tactics in Congress, misrepresentations in the news media, and even distasteful humor. All of this affects our quality of life. Instead of offering alternatives to the Republican agenda, they offer nothing more than attack politics. Whatever comes out of President Trump’s mouth, whether it is a policy speech, an off-remark, or even a burp, is slandered by the Left as un-American. By vilifying the president, they hope to link Republican congressmen inseparably to him, thereby hoping the hatred for the president will be carried forward. The mantra will be, “A vote for Congressman X is a vote for Donald Trump.”

There is one problem with this strategy, it won’t work as Liberals underestimate voters from the heartland, which will cost Democrats the 2018 mid-term elections. This will throw them into a state of shock, much greater than losing the 2016 presidential race, and then our problems will worsen.

If the Democrats are soundly defeated, their shock will turn to anger, and this is when our country could erupt. It will go way beyond demonstrations and heated remarks, and likely lead to violent confrontations. It may even go so far as to cause liberal states such as California, Oregon, and Washington to seek to secede from the Union as they will no longer tolerate Republican control in the nation’s Capitol. Troops will likely have to be summoned to maintain the peace and seceding states may face martial law.

It would be nice to believe we could unify despite our differences, but this is not happening as America is too sharply divided. Nor do I see how we can continue to operate our government as a logjam. We are simply not making any progress one way or another.

The rhetoric we are hearing today is reminiscent of the passionate Congressional arguments pertaining to the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 which dealt with the future of slavery. whereas the arguments then were concerned with a single issue, today we have arguments across the board regarding such things as illegal immigration, sanctuary cities, climate control, entitlements, religious and racial divides, education, job creation, and much more, all of which has led us to an era of gridlock.

Another Civil War is certainly feasible, some would say it has already started. I, for one, believe it is not only inevitable, but at this stage, it is inescapable. Somebody please tell me I am wrong.

    I know people who are stocking firearms because they have a concern that good-intentioned liberals will go far beyond the Constitutional Rights afforded to all.

    As a veteran, I assure you, there is nothing a civilian can legally acquire that will hold off a military action. As a child of the ‘60s, I remember with heart-break when our National Guard shot our own citizens in the name of keeping peace at Kent State University in Ohio.

    The Civil War of 150+ years ago had a financial and ideological base that the seceding states believed could sustain them. Perseverance paid off in maintaining the Union. As much as the liberal states of today would conceive of the idea of forming a new country, they are enslaved by their dependence on federal funds for their give-away mentality. In short, my opinion is that the cumulative of all of the blue states is still too weak to stand as a separate country.

    Throughout our history as a country, the industrial state has ebbed and flowed, from agricultural to hard-industrial to mechanical-industrial to powered-industrial to electronic-industrial and today as digital-industrial. America has always been a technological germination center for the world: manufacturing; assembly-lines; tube-electronics; solid-state electronics; computerization; virtualization.

    We, as citizens, must communicate directly with the elected officials. Stay the course.
