"The terrifying saga of The United States during a second civil war. Gurr tells the story of another civil war through the eyes of Colby Ohlbinger, a left-leaning school teacher, John Hartwick a thirty-something computer programmer to the right, and a small group loyal to each as they fight for the nation they are willing to die for.As battles rage from Indianapolis, Sacramento California, St. Louis and Richmond Virginia the people of the nation are forced to pick a side. Smaller groups try to gain an advantage and threaten to turn a terrible war into a disaster for which there may be no recovery."

There are over 300 million people in the U.S. and extremist fanatics make up only a small percentage. The media likes to harp on areas of turmoil to boost viewership. The fact is, most people on the right and left in this country don't hate each other. I am a very conservative professor and former Tea Party activist who teachers at a fairly liberal university. Like most professors, most of my friends are colleagues at work and former students. Needless to to say, most of these individuals are fairly left-leaning in their politics. Nevertheless our friendships are as close as anyone else's (and certainly closer than that segment of the population whose friendships consist of primarily of on-line relationships). In addition, I co-host a weekly round table program on a native-American station with a liberal, former Democratic county chair, and a vocal Libertarian-leaning Native American activist. I also consider both of these individuals my friends. We maintain an open dialogue on political and cultural events every week, and our political leanings never interferes with our friendships. I have provided a link to last week's program. I think that the vast majority of Americans still find this type of dialogue more fruitful than any Civil War: link

By the way, I should add, before anyone takes offense, the name used by the duo with whom I host my show is one that they apply to themselves. Most Native Americans, even those with left-leaning sentiments, are far less politically correct, than the general public.

And, I too experienced what Native Americans prefer to be called when I visited New Mexico.

I don't think burying your head is helpful. You need only to look to places like Portland , to see CW2 is a very real possibility.
Also he is referencing a piece of fiction.

You can look at the current hotbeds of political dissent and I think what you will find are a very small percentage of the population threatening another small percentage of the population while everyone else tries to get to their jobs. But there are lots of gaming possibilities in a second US civil war.

Conflict becomes probable (or necessary, depending on one's beliefs) if the opposing side declines to live and let live. Like Stryderg says, most everyone just wants to go to work and be left alone.

That isn't as possible as it was just twenty years ago.

I know that, in the event of a real conflict in the US, I'll be a participant. That's a decision I made willingly years ago.

It only takes one hothead in a tense time to burn everything to the ground. Who will be our Gavrilo Princip?
