Civil War I: Slavery - Civil War II: Guns?Submitted by zooamerica on Mon, 12/24/2012 - 23:51
There's been a lot of talk lately, perhaps too much talk about the possibility of another Civil War happening within the United States.
Personally, I don't think that is possible - we're too tight, black and white. We all bleed red. Too many people know what's up, and too many Americans of every race and religion are smarter than most people think. More of us are on the same page than anyone could ever imagine, and some have fallen behind in previous chapters but at least their reading the same book called TRUTH.
The first Civil War was not fought over slavery, but the issue was exploited to its full political benefit.
The second Civil War, which the powers that be are trying to foment will not be fought over the 2nd Amendment, but the issue will be exploited to its full political benefit as we can all see on TV.
"My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union."
Letter to Horace Greeley, August 22, 1862
"My paramount object in this struggle is to save the UNion, and is not either to save or to destroy the 2nd Amendment. If I could save the UNion by implementing a ban on all guns I would do it, and if I could save the UNion by making firearms free to all I would do it; and if I could save the UNion by making guns legal, but restricting their access I would also do that. What I do about guns, and the gun culture in America, I do because I believe it helps to save the UNion."
