Is America Headed Toward a Second Civil War?

The Battle Hymn of the Republic

There are multiple indicators that America is headed toward a second Civil War.

This new Civil War is not about the Southern states secession from the Republic. Rather this new Civil War is about those who want to fundamentally transform America. It’s between those who embrace liberty against those who are hell bent on imposing a tyrannical government upon American citizens.

It is in essence a battle between patriots and tyrants.

One group of Americans, the patriots, believe that the United States is a Constitutional Republic where the power lies in the hands of each legal citizen not government. Patriots put their trust in God, not government, for their redemption. This group embraces free and fair elections, the imperative that only legal citizens of the U.S. have a right to vote and want voter IDs to identify themselves, and others, as legal voters.

The second group, the tyrants, believe that the United States is a democracy where 51% of the voters can dictate to the other 49% how to live, work and play. This group is willing to allow illegal non-citizens and dead people to vote. This group calls any voter ID laws racist. This group has no problem allowing elections to be stolen. This group believes that God is the opiate of the people and that government, not God, is in control.

The Second Civil War – Patriots vs. Tyrants

A new ABC News/Ipsos poll found that 55% of respondents say they are pessimistic about the direction of the country for the next 12 months. This is significant because it represents a nearly 20 percentage point drop in the same poll that was taken in May, when 36% of Americans were pessimistic and 64% were optimistic about the nation’s future. Declines in optimism were from Republicans, independents, and Democrats.

This is the beginning of a new awakening that there is something fundamentally wrong with where we are headed as a nation, culture and a unique society. There are many who are worried that their children and grandchildren will not be growing up in a free society.

The current policies of the Biden administration are leading us to a totalitarian government bent on control of its citizens using every means available to it.

This administration is using its powers to imprison those who disagree with it. Big Tech is wantonly censoring certain views. Freedom of speech is threatened. Individual choices are being replace by government mandates, e.g. vaccine passports.

The free market is being replaced with government imposed lockdowns. Tyranny is raising its ugly head using fear as their hammer to pound on our religious liberties, freedom of speech and unalienable right to keep and bear arms.

History Repeats Itself

We are seeing history repeat itself.

America in 2021 is reminiscent of Germany in 1933.

The anti-Fascists are in-fact Fascists. Antifa and Black Lives Matter are the new Brown Shirts and SS of Nazi era Germany.

In the 1947 book “Nuremberg Diary” Gustave M. Gilbert, a psychologist who had access to the prisoners during the trials, describes a discussion with Herman Goering, one of the most powerful figures in the Nazi Party.

Gilbert asked Goering “how did the Nazi Party force the German people to go to war”, to which Goering responded:

“…It is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship.”

Goering was reminded by Gilbert that,

“in a democracy the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives.”

Goering responded that,

“[V]oice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.”

We are seeing this happen today with Biden and his handlers creating fear using Covid, the January 6th mostly peaceful demonstration in Washington, D.C. and the false flag of “white supremacism” to “drag people along” to attack their neighbors and friends for being patriots.


It is only a matter of time before there is a second Civil War.

This new civil war will be between patriots and tyrants.

The goal of the tyrants is to destroy America and with it western civilization. The goal of patriots is to protect and defend our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.

The methodology of the tyrant is to rewrite history, e.g. Critical Race Theory, and literally tear down Civil War memorials to keep the young from understanding American history, especially the Civil War that reunited the Republic and freed the slaves.

The more government tries to take control the more the people will push back against it.

Violence may be necessary to restore our freedoms. As Thomas Jefferson wrote:

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

Time will tell if it becomes a shooting war. We hope that it doesn’t. However, if Biden continues down the path he and his handlers are on, nothing can stop him short of a revolution.

Are you a patriot or a tyrant? Choose wisely.

    Truly a battle between Good (Patriots) and Evil (Tyrants aka the Obama 3 Administration and their supporters).

    Right now we should fight back and resist government overreach and control with non-compliance to illegal, immoral, unconstitutional edicts, executive orders, even legislation from the socialist Obama 3 regime and its puppets Biden and Harris. We should use State’s Rights and Nullification per the 9th and 10th Amendments along with our individual, God Given Rights under our Constitution and the Bill of Rights..

    However, when the socialist Federal govt. or Blue State govts. illegally come after the 2nd Amendment and our Firearms with national registration, conviscation, etc. this will most likely trigger a different kind of Civil War more like the American Revolution. We can not stand by and let tyrants disarm us like the despots of world history Hitler, Stalin, Mao, etc.

    I fear another war would split this country, just as the Civil War did, but I don’t see anything really being done. Our military has been stripped of its leadership, and We go further and further into debt, and the dems keep spending. IF, and I mean IF, we could get at least some of the liberal media to switch to our way of thinking, like True Americans, I fear we would be facing a lost cause. As for me and my household, we will stand right there with you. Someone like President Trump, or other military leaders, should lead the charge, he has the backing, and the loyal senior brass and NCO’s will follow him. But to stand back and watch these idiots is more than I can stand, given my 21+ years of Navy Service, 11 of which were as a Chief Petty Officer. But I do see a war breaking out in this divided country.

    While I agree with Royal and the good Dr., we only have ourselves to blame. We allowed our education system to be taken over by – well I’m not sure what – idiots? Radicals? Progressives? As a result we no longer teach history. We allow schools to teach that this is a democracy. It’s not. It’s a Republic. Our schools and colleges created this monster and we are in for a tough, possibly unwinnable fight to save our Union.

    “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”
    When General Gage marched into Lexington to confiscate the arms of the citizens there were 20,000 militia there to welcome him. We are not in a ‘Civil War’ as this is not about states rights as in the 1800’s. This is about civil liberties and individual rights. Right now they are instituting the Tax Acts (Infrastructure Bill, 3.5T Budget Plan, etc.). These are the ‘Stamp Acts’, next will be the ‘Townsend Acts’, and most unfortunately will be the ‘Coercive Acts’. I tell you: when they come for the arms of the citizen we will have another Revolutionary War. Biden has already threatened: “If you wanted or if you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons. The point is that there has always been the ability to limit — rationally limit the type of weapon that can be owned and who can own it.”.

    I’m a little curious as to how you define and justify that those on the left are totalitarians and fascists yet also socialists. I’m sure that you don’t want to be identified as a peddler of misinformation (commonly called unsubstantiated bullshit) so, as I am a student of life, could you provide verifiable, peer reviewed research that substantiates your claims. Let’s leave out YouTube or those whack jobs we call the radical right or Antifa. I will say that I favor no political agenda, just hate unsubstantiated lies.

    Additionally, if you want to use terms correctly, Trump is an authoritarian who created his own swamp to further his own agenda (agenda being synonymous with pockets). That is verifiable. I have studied him from the early 80’s and have to agree with most reputable sources that he is a narcissist, conman, and based on video clips and direct comments from left and right a malignant human being. The sad thing is that he has fooled his base, good people who are dissatisfied with a system of both Democrats and Republicans that they feel has forgotten them. I get it. What’s even sadder is that all of use just want to live our lives, raise our kids, etc. Trump and his cronies are creating conflict to insure that won’t happen. It also must be mentioned that the bulk of the calls for a 2nd Civil War and violence are from Trump supporters, not the other way around. We can both agree that Antifa is trash. One thing to keep in mind is that not all liberals are afraid of conflict and also fully support the 2nd Amendment. I accept political differences but they must be addressed with verifiable facts (I love research) and at least a little mutual respect.

    Out of curiosity, what are you a doctor of and is it verifiable? If someone is going to throw around an absolute shitload of misinformation it’s always good to know their credentials.

      I am an American patriot who believes that AMERICANS SHOULD COME FIRST!! You are a POS loser who should leave our country or prepare to be forced to leave when real Americans get back in power! People like you are evil and should be treated as such! Your a communist pig that should be hung for treason like your buddy sleepy Joe! You are the scum of the earth like the FBI brown shirt thugs that have been roaming our streets! Please just die and go to hell! Because I have scraped better things off the bottom of my shoes!! You are the reason that a civil war will be fought on the streets of America to free us of vile evil scum that will burn in hell!!

        Fairly evident by your reply that you’re pretty uninformed or just a slave to that piece of shit trump and Fox News. I’m a veteran and retired 911 paramedic. I’ve dealt with your kind of ignorance many times before.

        If you search the internet dumbass, you will find it is the alt-right who are prophesizing civil war. Is I said in my piece, I am neither right or left but just point out stupidity when I see it. You get the award today. And, considering it will be such bitches as the Proud Boys or one of those little “wish I was a commando” groups, there will be a shocking revelation when they realize that all on the left aren’t pussies. So take your stupid reply and pretty much shove it up your ass, rube. Next time bring intelligence to the conversation.

          You must be so proud of your choice for Presidency.
          Biden’s lack of leadership skills should have been evident to you prior to the tragic scenes taking place in Afghanistan! Over 40 years of political service and I bet you can’t name one significant accomplishment other than the money he received from our foreign adversaries while being VP.

          I have been critical of Trump and many of his choices, but Biden is the worst thing to hit the U.S. You called Trump authoritarian…. What do you think mandating vaccinations with a 40% success rate with serious side effects is? That’s as authoritarian as you can get… Unemployment is back up, minorities are being treated like crap again, Afghanistan was lost, our interprets names were given to the Taliban, which are being slaughter with their family members. Now the veterans that went and save many interpreters and their families are now being held in court, they will be sentenced to prison. The U.S is going downhill fast and it’s not just Trumpers who are tired of it. I spent 8 years in the Army, blood, sweat, and tears put into this country and the war, just to let this happen. Now many like me are angry and patiently waiting for this country to finally split with a civil war so we can settle this garbage once and for all. People will only be pushed so far and we’re about at the limit.

      Jules says:

      I agree it is more than likely the center/right leaning people that would be calling for a civil war, they are currently the ones being attacked at every turn. It would be extremely unusual for the aggressor (especially when in ascendance) to be to ones to do so.

      The current government is doing more harm to the majority of Americans than any foreign power could. The “most popular president” in American history is clearly not well, almost any competent/lucid person would be an improvement (fortunately that rules out almost 99% of the political “elite”).

      America is indeed NOT a democracy, but when you allow governments to ignore the constitution it’s not really a Republic either, it’s a regime.

    Freedom is not free and when are the American people going to stand up and drag these POS out of the White House and hang them for treason? We need to destroy the DEMONRATS party so America can not only survive but prosper! The FBI and all the other communist within our government need to be destroyed for the treason that they have committed. We will and can be the greatest nation on earth if we do this!! We are a loving caring nation but DEMONRATS our evil people who have already killed many of our people to push there agenda! Please American patriots stand up now! Some will die and blood will be spilled but if not we will all die and great pain and destruction will be speared across the planet and the light of the world will be shut off and darkness and evil will rule our earth!!

    Micheal is the liar and spreader of false information. Donald Trump spent a ton of his own money during his campaign, gave his salary away, cost his business millions. You are what Josef Stalin described as “ A useful idiot “

    It is coming, once the commiecrat party makes the fatal move to actually come after the guns will the true battles begin. The constitution is what makes this nation the federalist republic and many have taken an other to defend the constitution from ALL enemies forgiven and domestic, the government is just a creation ran by people to manage the affairs of the USA, it is NOT the USA. When ever people are stealing power to change the nation, we that took the oath must stand to save the nation

    Linda says:

    Our country will not be the first to separate when it comes to that. I truly believe it will come to be a second civil war as there will be no other choice. At least then, we, the Patriots will have a country we can be proud of with a Constitution that we will uphold. Right now, we are an embarrassment to ourselves and the rest of the world!

    Sua Sponte says:

    I’m not sure if the shooting starts with vaccine mandates or firearms confiscation. First of all, I’m in the camp of, the “vaccine” does not work against the Chi-Com Flu. So what exactly is the jab’s purpose? I also have presumed natural immunity as I’m a Chi-Com Flu survivor. Why mandate a mRNA injection jab for me and millions of other Americans with natural immunity? I’m also convinced the Chi-Com Flu was a planned event. Whether it was the CCP or Fauci/Gates, (or all of the above) doesn’t matter. It was planned for, what purpose? Was the purpose to steal an election to remove Trump? Trump would have another 4 years and retire someplace nice. Why not wait 4 years? The Biden/Harris regime appears to be deliberately sabotaging the economy, military and institutions of the United States of America and its credibility in the world. While simultaneously and systematically striping American Citizens of their God given, Constitutionally protected civil liberties. What’s the agenda? I’m an old Soldier. Civil War, Partisan Guerilla warfare, Color Revolution or whatever you want to call it, is coming to America. What triggers it, has yet to be determined. Regardless, it will be bloody, violent, murder, mayhem suffering and death. Which is better than being rounded up and placed in concentration camps or becoming a Communist Socialist Serf living in slavery. Buckle up! Lock and load, the enemy is within the gates.

      Ordinary people will do extra ordinary tasks to save their Country. Active Military, police, will join retired or former military and law enforcement along with citizens to stop the communist take over of the Republic.
