This nation is closer to a Civil War than it has been since 1861

If I receive permission to re-post this outstanding article on the potential of Civil War here, then I will.  In the meantime, here are a couple of excerpts to whet your appetite:

“I earnestly hope and pray that our differences with our government can be settled through peaceful means. I know many are speaking of open rebellion against the government, but I know of no one who wants to overthrow the American system of government, only those people that currently occupy that government.”

“the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto, inspired by the Passover story, rose up against the Nazis and demonstrated that a struggling community of half-starved Jews had the power to hold out longer than countries like Poland and France against the Nazis oppressors. “Imbued with the call of Moses, they too declared, ‘Let my people go!’”

“They took up arms, though no one gave them arms. They fought, though no ally fought with them. On this night of Passover, the Jewish birthday of freedom from oppression and slavery, they restored self-defense and power to the Jewish people. Not many of them survived. Thus, on this night, when God watched over us millennia ago, we honor the memory of the young men and women of the Jewish Fighting Organization of the Warsaw Ghetto with a pledge that we will never forget the gift of revolt against tyranny that they bequeathed to us and to all humanity.”
