The girls were talking about it at work, they think martial law is coming. I'd rather it didn't.
The churches are on the "race war" kick
But I'm just curious what could really be the outcome?
Will it just fizzle out for a while and come back? Will it continue to get worse?
It's just really annoying with all of these stupid people trying to kill each other.
My sister was at work the other day and a man came running in asking for them to call the cops. He was beaten up, his head was bashed, blood everywhere.apparently he was attacked because he was white. It's all over her town. It's everywhere it seems. It's hard to tell if things are really as bad as the media says it is.

We're going to carry on. Most people are NOT going crazy about all this.

Some may call it a revolution. I see it as evolution. Good, bad, or indifferent things just don't stay the same for too long.

I think you just described Punctuated Equilibrium.

RE: What's going to happen in the US?
There is IMO a strong issue regarding the US Republic. All it needs is a leader to get the military and it can fall. Just as it did in Rome. Trump for example, had he the military, could be such a person.

During the time of the Republic in Rome, in time of desperate need, one man could be made dictator and hold this position for 6 months. A man named Cincinnatus did this. However with he, when the problem was rectified he immediately quit.

It later took Ilulias Caesar, with an army behind him, to march on Rome, create a civil war and declare himself dictator.

The American republic was formed on the Roman model. History repeats.

The USA, with it's heavily armed populace, is coming to a close. Perhaps between the next 50 to 100 years. Maybe sooner.

And they died trying. Unfortunately they were facing trained troops. Our troops will be facing idiots with guns.

Talk to US troops....

They feel their oath is to the people of the country -- not to some sorry cunt of a politician who is allegedly "in charge"...

If the shit hits the fan - the US government will not be able to count on the US military doing it's bidding....
