 Regardless of the electoral outcome, the possibility of civil unrest
should not be discounted.

Our societal divide has become a widening and deepening chasm to the point that regardless of who wins the presidential election civil unrest seems increasingly likely.

I wrote here about the Civil War of 1861 – 65 and here about the constitutional implications and causes of that war.  Should  violence follow the November election, the conflagration and its context will be very different. It will have less to do with North versus South or with our few remaining States’ rights. It may be influenced by the increasing misery brought on by persistent and worsening economic conditions and the tendency of governmental efforts “unexpectedly” to exacerbate rather than to ameliorate them.

There may be no discernible focus at all. Big riots can easily spring from circumstances ignited by minor displeasures, celebrations or for no apparent reason. “

Retired, but still spending an inordinant amount of time thinking about all things big and small. I am proud to be a strong constitutional conservative. I am also proud to have been married over 56 years to my wonderful wife, Louise. I continue to be amazed that she has put up with me for such a long time, but have been happy that she decided to do so. "The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not," warned Thomas Jefferson.
