Repost; A Civil War that doesn’t require …well, War.

That’ll Be Enough*

Most of the land mass of this nation is owned and resided upon by people who are in “red” (that is, the winner this time) areas of the country.  With the exception of certain urban centers and right along the Mexican/Texas border there are very few “solid” blue areas.

Those urban centers consume roughly 90% of the energy and food in this country yet they comprise 5-10% of the land mass.  The “red” areas produce 95% of the food and energy this nation consumes and occupies 90-95% of the land mass.

What if the people who live in the “red” areas, that is, those who produce the food and energy that are consumed to the 90th percentile in the “blue” areas, decide they’re not going to do that for the blue areas any more?  What if their middle finger goes up, in short?

Remember, we allegedly do not permit slavery in this country any more — which means that which someone owns they have the right to sell – or not sell.  They have the right to produce – or, more to the point, not produce.

What if the people who peacefully conceded the result of two elections over the last eight years despite vehemently opposing the outcome decide that if the “blue” folks can riot, loot, beat people who vote the “wrong way” and similar they will not accept any further election result that doesn’t go their way, and instead of rioting or burning things they will simply shut off the flow of food and energy to said “blue” areas?  After all, you don’t value them at all — you consider them subhuman, racist, xenophobic, deplorable and irredeemable — all at once.

I’ll tell you what happens if they take that decision: Every major city in the country would go feral within hours.

And Dead within the next month.   Sounds good!  Actually, it’s ‘Going Galt’ in a big, BIG way.

    If the 10% who produce the food, oil and hard goods the urban parasites require refuse to sell them to the parasites the government would quickly step in, seize the products and give them away. If the producers refuse to even produce the products if necessary the military would be used to enslave the workers and force them to produce. Make no mistake about it…..America is not a free country and it would take very little to cause the mask to be removed and the true nature of who is in charge to be shown. The result would be enslavement of the productive minority withthe parasitic majority happy to see it happen OR civil war. Guess which outcome is not only probable but heading our way in the near future.

  2. I expect comments pointing out that the path from rural or farm country to urban dweller or suburban parasite is hardly a straight path. The need for military to seize what the parasites need is hardly going to be immediate (and might end up being UN rather than US troops).
    But, this was the kind of post, here and the original, that intends to provoke thought and discussion. I’ve got to get going this morning, driving for the town’s medical van, but keep it up!
