"Poll: 59% Fear Violence From Trump Haters, 31% Predict Civil War

"The division in the United States that has escalated into the organized harassment of Presidential aides has six in 10 worried about the violence from anti-Trump advocates and nearly a third fearing it will end in civil war.

"The latest survey from Rasmussen Reports found that 59 percent of all voters 'are concerned that those opposed to President Trump’s policies will resort to violence.'

"And, added Rasmussen, 31 percent believe 'it’s likely that the United States will experience a second civil war sometime in the next five years.”'

According to this research, 3/5 of U.S. voters perceive The Don's opposition as potentially violent.
And perception is reality.

It may be presumed The Don's opposition have serious PR issues. 
Depending upon the electorate's reaction to the opposition's perceived penchant for violence, the much ballyhooed 'Blue Wave' might become a 'Red Tide'.
Hoisted by their own petard, as it were.

We'll know more the 2nd week of November.

Dam! there is some number crunching!!! Nah i don't have glock (Not yet) I am ready for something a little less personal, a high powered Rifle. As for your shotgun. I envy the idea you have it. Hmm i wonder can you get a bump stock, for a shotgun. (off topic My Bad) . -
Current smoothbore is a basic bird 'n bunny gun...with an extra slug barrel for deer.
Suspect a bump stock would be pretty useless with a pump action sigh

Further suspect a bump stock on a 12 ga. auto-loader would be a handful...
Newton and his stupid laws of motion - action & reaction.

This li'l monster would be fun...

...A 12 ga. sawed-off shotgun-thing with 20 wow round detachable mags smitten

When Mossberg came out with the detachable mag version of the 590, they offered it on the civilian market... probably to get it there BEFORE it could be regulated as for military/LE only.
Good marketing move.

Suspect they also intended it to make the military's 590's obsolete...leading to a lucrative contract for new detach mag 590's.
A helluva good marketing move!

BTW - Yes, y'all. That sawed-off shotgun-thing in the vid IS legal.
It is NOT a shotgun scold
It is a 'firearm, other'; BATF said so - so it must be so.

And before anyone says, 'The Don did it very mad he's arming Murkuns with crazy-lethal weaponry' - note that BATF made the 'firearm, other' ruling BEFORE The Don became Prez.
Under Prez Barry.
Yes. REALLY! Go figure dunno

We managed to link crazy-lethal weaponry to a Lefty Prez.
So we stayed on topic. Kinda. grin


daydreamTwenty rounds of Dragon Breath ammo (see vid in my comment above roll eyes ) thru that sawed-off shotgun-thing...
DAYUM! smitten

Aging actor turned Resistance Fighter warns 'blood will flow in the streets' if Democrats do not win in the mid-terms...

Why would anyone think there's gonna be Civil War?
Because Folks Like This SAY There's Gonna Be Civil War!

It's incredible that The Don & Repubs could have enough money to pay such people to spout such idiocy - days before Murkuns go to the polls
Yet it's even less plausible they could be so stupid for real.


Violence has been around about as long as mankind(not a coincidence in my opinion).

I'm more of a firm believer in watching and waiting to see how things actually go. Be ready where applicable.

I don't think we're close to that type of violence yet.

Can it happen? Yes.

I'm not so sure it would be the scale fear mongered about.
I don't believe we're on the eve of Civil War either.
But as you say... could be wrong. uh oh

But WHY would anyone say such nonsense?!
Do they WANT to look crazy?!
Is the ol' crackpot threatening voters...You choose wrong - blood flows?!

It goes to perception...optics, if you will.
And when folks are polled...3/5 of 'em say they fear violence from the Left.

Batshit crazy crazy

I did some fact checking in regard to violence in the USA by race

I suggest America build a wall to keep the white Americans born in the USA out of America because it ain't the bloody Mexicans nor the blacks nor any other race committing the most atrocities..It's the whites grin

Race and crime in the United States
The relationship between race and crime in the United States has been a topic of public controversy and scholarly debate for more than a century. The rate at which crime is committed varies greatly between racial groups. While most homicides in the United States are intraracial—the perpetrator and victim are of the same race—the rates at which African Americans (blacks) both commit and are the victim of homicide is about six to eight times higher than that of white Americans. The incarceration rate of blacks is more than three times higher than their representation in the general population. Research shows that the overrepresentation of some minorities in the criminal justice system can be explained mostly by disproportionate rates of crime, but also by socioeconomic factors and racial discrimination by law enforcement and the judicial system.
thumbs up Chris Cuomo thumbs up
[bMidterm election result far from certain as gerrymandering could lead to a Republican win]

Mic yes I'm off topic..Google gerrymandering..I watched it on TV.

Republicans started this shit..Cheats!~
We've already meandered around Dragon's Breath & a few other topics, Merc.
So what the hell. Why not some Gerry-meandering?

States are Gerrymandered. It's been going on for a long time. The term dates to 1812...the practice probably even earlier.

Congressional Districts are laid out by the states based on population in the most recent census. A census is conducted in years ending in 0 ...2010 being the most recent.

Both parties Gerrymander.
So it's a significant advantage for a party to control a state government after a census year.

2018 mid-terms.
Will Gerrymandering benefit Dems or Repubs?

Hard to say.
Repubs control more states, but Dems hold a number of states with large population centers.
So the actual number of opportunities to lay out districts is probably fairly similar.

I've heard it claimed the Dems may have a slight advantage overall.
Others might claim the edge goes to Repubs.

Both parties denounce the other for doing it.
And both parties do it.

For the record -
For Congressional elections, Gerrymandering only affects races for the House Of Representatives.
It doesn't affect Senate races.

Betting odds favor Repubs to hold/gain seats in the Senate, and favor Dems to pick up seats in the House.
This might indicate that the current layout - Gerrymandering - of Congressional Districts favors Dems nationwide.

That and a crazy old actor threatening 'blood in the streets' if the electorate doesn't vote Dem, of course.

We've meandered around...and arrived back on topic!

The Republicans are favoured..An Aussie lawyer who married an American is running around like a lunatic knocking on doors.

Those who live on reservations who don't have street names are being punished as well.

Favours Chump.
I presume you're referring to this issue in North Dakota...

Seems the simplest way to deal with it would be to name the streets & number the houses dunno

From the NPR article in my above roll eyes comment...

"The Lakota People's Law Project and the Four Directions nonprofit have provided more than 2,000 voters on four reservations with free IDs with street addresses that would meet the new requirements, The Associated Press reported."

It would appear the issue is being addressed.

North Dakota is one of a few states that cannot be Gerrymandered.

Because it's so thinly populated that it has only one Congressional District...the whole state.
No districts to lay out, so no Gerrymandering.

Also BTW - I was born in North Dakota.


I'm having a tough time segueing back to folks being terrorized by Libs, Merc.

Maybe you can help me out!

That Aussie lawyer banging like a lunatic on doors...
Is he/she lib'rul? Is he/she actually a lunatic?
Does he/she carry, say, a baseball bat or WWI trench knife with which to threaten folks with bodily harm/blood letting should they not agree to vote Dem?

That would help alot grin

Mic you have so many posts aimed at me I don't know whether I'm Arthur or Martha uh oh laugh

The Aussie woman is lovely..I can't remember the name of the thingy I watched.
That link in regard to the law thingy is bloody ridiculous
Is Not tongue
Bloody lunatics up over there laugh

Everything has to be complicated up over there rolling on the floor laughing
Agreed cheers
Agreed cheers

you lot (you Americans) pointing have been whipped into such a state of fear I wonder you dare set foot out of doors.

When I saw this blog pop up again I quickly checked the headlines. No wholesale violence. No civil war. Quite a bit of paranoia.

And what's this AFM disease? The sheer panic when the UK faces a new disease has to be seen to be believed - bird flu, swine flu, the panic reaches crisis proportions as soon as more than 3 people have contracted whatever it is. Nothing is remotely as horrible as AFM sounds - and yet it is creeping and spreading and being COMPLETELY OVERLOOKED. A woman interviewed on Fox News blamed it on the caravan and was pooh-poohed, rightly as it turns out, it has been creeping around since 2014. The subject was shut down so fast - and it is so unlike Fox News to not blame the caravan automatically - I looked it up.

Maybe you lot should stop pissing yourselves with fear, ignore politics for the fake news distraction it is trying to be, and look together at what is being very quietly brushed under the rug.
Stop being so reasonable, Biff scold
I haven't bothered reading through the whole thing, I just went in when I saw some posters name with cop-on posting. grin

I have never heard of afm disease and googled it. wow

Now that IS something to be afraid off!
Mic I accidentally hit the hysterical laughing emoji.

Listen to Chris Cuomo thumbs up
For y'all as ignorant of AFM disease as Kn & I...

"Acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) is a rare but serious neurologic illness of sudden onset, usually in children. It presents with localised limb weakness and visible changes on MRI. The cause is currently unknown*. Although the illness is not new, there has been a marked increase in cases since 2014. There is no known effective treatment for the condition."

*So caravans cannot be categorically ruled out scold
Or lib'ruls either, for that matter.

Listen to Chris Cuomo what, Merc confused
Give me something here dunno

I'll listen to him if you listen to this guy tell why folks should be terrified of lib'ruls...

Also - it's funny. laugh

Quick go to CNN now..It's called Democracy In Peril..The war on voting rights.

Chris Cuomo is one of the best at getting to the facts
Trump is all about hate Mic come on get real here
Is Not tongue

I'll try to find the CNN thingy...typing

Couldn't find Democracy In Peril connected with Chris Cuomo.
There was something like that from CNN, but no CC.

My thingy was four minutes & some long.
The CNN thingy was like an hour & a half.
So that thingy would be like twenty TIMES as long as mine.
Not fair scold

Also, mine was funny and the CNN thingy looked to be dry as a popcorn fart.

A deal's a deal handshake

This looks kinda similar and it's under five minutes...

Fair is fair.

Still ain't funny though mumbling

Yet another reason to be terrified of lib'ruls...
The sum'bltches will bore you to death...yawn...sad flower

I'll segue this damned thing back on topic or die tryin', by god.

Mic Chris Cuomo isn't associated with what I asked you to watch.

I did mean to state that laugh

The thing is I was one of those who wanted Trump in the Oval Office.

The party I vote for here is what you would call a Republican party..It's one thing to support a party but it's another thing to agree and adore absolutely everything your party says and does.

It's not a bloody football game it's a serious matter when it comes to casting your vote and when you hear BS from the man/woman in charge because your vote helped put him/her there it's up to the us to keep the bastards honest.

Trump screams fake news when all they do is fact check him he get's called out and that pisses him off.
Okay back on topic conversing

What was the topic to begin with? giggle
Beats hell outta me confused

But ill segue this damned thing back onto it whatever it is... was.
You can bet your last protein shake on that drinking thumbs up

Yes there will be civil war if things keep going the way they are.

I hope that Protein shake helps angel

I have a very bad habit of staying on topic uh oh

Good Night hug
Was suppose to say I have a very bad habit of not staying on topic.

Lets face it when we run into friends we don't stay on topic anyway.

Good night angel
I owe ya a protein shake, Merc :beet:

gnite...hug....er.... I mean morning.
