Amazingly, a majority of Amerikans, of whom a majority are also idiots, get this one right. Two-thirds foresee a civil war. And, soon.
Partisan political division and the resulting incivility has reached a low in America, with 67% believing that the nation is nearing civil war, according to a new national survey.
“The majority of Americans believe that we are two-thirds of the way to being on the edge of civil war. That to me is a very pessimistic place,” said Mo Elleithee, the executive director of Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service.
And worse, he said in announcing the results of the institute’s Battleground Poll, the political division is likely to make the upcoming 2020 presidential race the nastiest in modern history.
I think they have the percentage wrong. It’s more likely that we’re around 98% there, now. All that’s needed are a few sparks. On that front, the Fed and the neocons are doing all they can to help. 2033 may indeed be an overly optimistic estimate.
