I have a kid.

Exactly- unfortunately, not all of us are in a position to simply stop giving fucks. No kids here, but if I lose my job and/or my healthcare, I cannot continue treatment for conditions that I really need to treat. Also, if gay marriage gets banned, then what happens to my marriage?

I would much prefer action that changes the system from the inside, not by overthrowing it if at all possible.

It's really the only option you've got. Overthrowing the government... when civil war is better than whatever the fuck Trump and his eejit cronies cook up... You'se all better hope to hell it doesn't come to that.

All it took for me was watching "The Day After" ... and the panel that followed the airing. That was my first exposure to Carl Sagan, too.

You should see the British equivalent of that movie called Threads ten times more accurate and twenty times more terrifying than the day after. Its on you tube I think.

It is going to be bad. Very Bad. But if the dumbshits would re-elect Bush, you've got to suspect that indeed things have to get far more crazy stupid to wake the dumbshits up. So yeah, I hope the incompetence is so bad America will finally be done with the GOP. Bush, Trump, Brownback, Jindal, Rauner, apparently to get competence back in the government we need a truly tremendous meltdown of epic proportions.

So the Democrats will get to run things but with the provision that America wants a true, working system, competence, and no more crazy, sloppy, or half-assed government.

California would dominate though because it has a much larger population so best to merge the states or split into new ones. But each state's population is large enough to exist as an independent country.

Is somebody planning to cross the Rubicon???

Illinois and the North East too. Then Mexico and New Canada can build a big beautiful wall and make Great America pay for it.

A civil war to end the Republic eh... Where have I heard that before? Angel

RE: Who else secretly wants the shit to really hit the fan?
I was just thinking the other day, I really need to start making some emergency medical tourism plans, just in case I ever need to make a quick getaway to a sane country for medical treatment of some sort. Anybody got any suggestions?... or countries to avoid? Would I require dual citizenship? Consider

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?
