Obama Has Won! Is Civil War Inevitable?

Written by Skip Coryell on May 10, 2013

If politics is a game of Chess, then liberals are Bobby Fischer, and conservatives are The Three Stooges. In a cunning game of patience and forethought, conservatives just can’t compete.

Conservatives have always relied on informed voters with integrity and moral fiber, but they no longer have that advantage. It became clear to me that when Barack Obama won his second term: America was lost. We no longer have a society of voters capable of making prudent, wise decisions. Over half our electorate is now composed of narcissists who vote for their own selfish interests.

So where does that leave us? Is there any hope at all for America? Maybe, but I’m skeptical. For some time now I’ve wondered: Is there any hope for America this side of bloodshed? Was Thomas Jefferson correct when he said, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”

Prior to the first American Revolution, there was a period of about forty years where the people became unhappy with their King, where they gradually strained against the tightening bonds that sought to enslave them. I see it happening again. The ground is fertile for both slavery and revolution.

Alas, my nine hundred words are up. But let’s continue our discussion next week when I write about Adam Kokesh and his upcoming armed march on Washington DC. Will it be the next shot heard round the world? Will it spark the next American Civil War? Will it be the final nail in the coffin of freedom?

In the meantime, study the Founders. Pray to God.
