American Flag in Distress
It's 2019 and The Storm is Almost Here – Can It Be Stopped?

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)-  At no time in our lives have we witnessed the country as being so divided. If one looks back in history, the divisions today between the left and right (coastal elites & middle Americans) are more severe and deeper than they were in early 1861.

There seems to be absolutely no way that either side will compromise and move to the center for the sake of our country. The only thing that we see happening is that both sides are digging in deeper and becoming more extreme. As such, they must face, sooner or later, the consequences of their positions, and the reality of what the future of the United States will be.

It was said by Abe Lincoln that “A house divided against itself cannot endure”…. and that is exactly where the United States finds itself in 2019. It is no longer slave-states versus non-slave states, it is the politically hardcore left against the politically conservative right. Tribal mentalities and identity politics are rampant across the country.

The hardcore left will not bend or compromise any of their beliefs and neither will the conservative right. And, sadly, only the folks in middle America see what is coming.

The coastal elites, which make up the majority of the leftists in this country, are wearing blinders and do not believe, or will even consider, that this country is on the brink of another civil war. I would imagine that a similar view was held by their counterparts in Yugoslavia just before their civil war. To remind those who do not remember, Yugoslavia was considered the “Paris of the East” in Europe. It was very prosperous and even sponsored the winter Olympics at Sarajevo in 1984. But, now, after the war, there are seven separate countries where one used to exist, and none are as prosperous as Yugoslavia once was.

The American left considers it to be acceptable behavior for their minions to call for the assassination of the President; they find it acceptable to depict him as being beheaded; they find it funny when one of their kind threatens to blow up the White House, and they turn a blind eye when their followers compare the President to Nazis, the vilest butchers of all time.

If the above remarks were not enough to disgust you, what about the newly elected congresswoman who called the President a mother F***er.

And, for the record, she is also a raging anti-Semite. If that was not enough to convince you of the bad intentions of the liberal elite, their current socialist rising star wants to take up to 70% of your income in taxes. She and the other radicals in this country ignore the fact that socialism only works until you run out of other people's money…. in other words, socialism always fails over time.

The above remarks are NOT the behavior of patriotic Americans… they represent the behavior of (treasonous) agitators who would destroy the United States. They would convert our country into a western hemispheric “Euro-style-nation”, supporting UN-globalism with open borders.

The future does not bode well for our country because we are so deeply divided. None of the mainstream media will openly discuss the horrible prospects that await our country, they prefer to remain like ostriches with their heads in the sand (usually siding with the radical leftists); however, in their private moments, they know what the future holds. As such, we hold them equally responsible for the storm that is coming.

There is no question in our minds that war is coming. It will be a war that will tear apart the very fabric of this country and result in millions of deaths. It is no longer a question of IF the United States will break apart in a civil war, it is NOW only a question of WHEN.

With the storm rapidly approaching, the elitists will redouble their attempts to disarm all law-abiding citizens and gut the 2nd Amendment. As such, it would be foolish for anyone to turn in their guns or magazines because of the liberals “common sense” gun control initiatives. Hang on to your firearms because you are going to need them in the near future. In fact, it is probably a good idea to pick up some extra ammunition (you can never have too much).

Remember….. with firearms you are a free citizen… without them, you are a subject and a slave.

    I disagree with this analysis. ALL of the obstruction comes from the Left. It is not a matter of compromise. They will never compromise because their goal is absolute power. Their pretexts are entirely false. They even admit it when you look carefully. For example Black Lives Matter is not protesting the treatment of blacks at the hands of police. It is protesting the capitalist system, it says so, because it claims the SYSTEM is racist. Therefore the system has to be destroyed, and white people with it. And when they talk about whites, that is another provocation designed to… Read more »

    I don’t believe the left has even considered the consequences of their actions, especially how far they can push decent people before we push back, and how FAR we’ll push when it comes to that. Many of us are Veterans, with combat time under our belts, and it always amazes me how scum like “Antifa” assume that They’re the “Baddest” things on the street. Until, then, let them Keep their Delusions, but I’m betting once the hornet/Snap flies past their heads, they’ll run crying for snowflake justice-LMFAO.

    Who the heck are the extreme right that you mentioned? I know they exist, but they are still such an extreme rarity despite the goadings of the much larger progressives (8% of the US). Much of the mainstream right is quite centered. The progressives have pulled the right and even much of the left so far left that compromise is no longer compromise but agreement with the progressives. Sadly, the right in the USA has been becoming more and more like that of Europe which is actually pretty left leaning by our standards. Expect to see more big government coming… Read more »

Somewhat comforting, but, who is it that is enforcing confiscation decrees such as the ones that were implemented during hurricane Catrina?

    Getting started about punishment, when criminals kill and are sentenced to death, why are the GOODY TWO SHOES so concerned about cruel and unjust pain to them, what about the victims, how about their pain brought to them, they got a death sentence and no concern for the amount of pain that was inflicted on them, so in my mind these criminals I have no feelings to make it any less painless for them!!!!!!!!!!! The more pain the better!!!!!!!!!!!

    “… Their current socialist rising star wants to take up to 70% of your income in taxes.”

    Unless your intended audience for this article is the extremely wealthy, this statement is inaccurate. Her proposed change to tax law would apply a 70% tax rate *only* to personal income that is over ten million dollars ($10,000,000) per year (and to clarify, the rate would apply *only* to the amount above $10M, income under $10M would be taxed at current rates, per her peoposal).

    The income tax was originally intended to only apply to the top 1-3% wealthiest Americans, but that morphed into everyone getting their earnings taxed! Does anyone credibly believe that if the socialists succeed in this, that they would stop with only the wealthy?? I was born at night, but I sure as hell wasn’t born LAST night!!!

    The wealthy will avoid taxation: by loopholes, their cronies in government, or leaving the country entirely! Who will be left to pay the high taxes? Guess what they want as part of that: more of a progressive tax rate than we already have. The middle class will be taxed out of existence!
    Finally, taxes do not even pay for most of the government spending! It’s magic money from the Federal Reserve that devalues the dollar every time they “create” more money for our “friends” in Washington.

    Conservatives over the last several decades, especially the GOP establishment, has bent over backwards moving leftward “towards the center” in an effort to meet the Left partway. As a result, today’s Republicans (particularly those who are known as RINOs) more closely resemble the Democrats of decades past. Yet the Left keeps moving the goal-posts ever leftward. Why do people not see this and call it out for what it is??

    “Unusual” just means that the technique is not used often enough. Use that form of execution more and the more usual it becomes. Use it three times and it becomes the norm. Cruel means slow and painful. Guillotine or gallows, both are fast and only a momentary pang.

    May have been French, but some German executioner used a mobile guillotine in the 1940s. Their use is unsightly but humane and not cruel. Current execution methods have been chosen for sensitivities of the public not the condemned.
