The Coming Civil War

This is an original commentary that I recently wrote.  I’m curious to know what others think.

Years ago in the late 80’s or early 90’s, my grandmother told me that she was scared for my generation.  She told me that the social/political environment would be much worse for us than it was for her generation.  I scoffed and reminded her that nothing could have been worse than the segregated society she grew up in the South.  She simply responded that we would have to wait and see.  Mother died in 1999 at the age of 87.  The events that this country has been through since 2000 would have captivated her.  She was a voracious consumer of the news, up on current events not only locally and nationally but also internationally.  She always had some news program on and read many political and financial magazines and newspapers. 

Over the past four years, I’ve come to think Mother was right.  Another bit of advice Mother gave me was to never trust the Bushes.  She said never vote for a Bush.  I followed her advice and neither voted for GW nor Herbert Walker.  Unfortunately, not enough people benefited from her sage advice.  I am not ashamed to say it but I am scared.  I am scared because most people don’t realize that we are at a dangerous point in our country’s future.
