Now that the House of Representatives is making plans to disenfranchise 63 Million voters, half the 2016 electorate, let’s examine how close America is to our Second Civil War, by comparing it to our First Civil War.
For four decades the infant country named the United States of America struggled to keep the southern states from seceding, and trying to avoid civil war.
Three Democrat senators are credited with keeping the union together: John C. Calhoun (SC), Henry Clay (KY) and Daniel Webster (MA). Unfortunately, all three passed away in the early 1850s leaving the senate without any statesmen who were willing to compromise in order to maintain unity.
Senator Jefferson Davis, a Democrat from Mississippi, walked out of the Senate chamber on January 21, 1861 stating “it only remains for me to bid you a final adieu.” Then Davis became the leader of the rebellion & president of the Confederate States of America. Hostilities began April 12, 1861 and we all know about the bloodshed that followed.
Southern Democrats wanted to expand slavery into the new territories being established in the plains region. But the many abolition societies in the North (wanting to outlaw slavery and free the slaves) came together in the 1850s to form the Republican party. In 1860 the GOP chose their first presidential candidate: Abraham Lincoln.
2019 AMERICA IS HEADED FOR OUR SECOND CIVIL WAR
In contrast to the pre-Civil War Democrats, the House, the Senate, the Obama Administration and the Deep State have spent over three years trying to tear apart the very fabric of our country. Indeed, we now have evidence the previous administration was not only spying on a presidential campaign, but created a scheme to destroy the Trump Administration.
With Democrats in the lead, today’s America is more divided over political ideology than at any time since the Civil War. The divide is not so geographically clear-cut as it was 150 years ago when states battled states, but just as polarized.
Today’s geographical divide is roughly between urban areas & rural areas, between the two coasts & the heartland. This can be seen in the county by county voting patterns in the Trump-Clinton presidential election. But, in some ways, the ideological divide is even more massive.
DEMOCRAT LEADERS ARE NO LONGER STATESMEN
Where are the statesmen among the Democrats today? Where is the modern Henry Clay, known as “The Great Compromiser” who proposed legislation that retrieved our nation from the brink of war in 1833?
Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, called for an “impeachment inquiry” based upon rumor, hours before the “evidence” was released. In June, she stated that she wanted our Constitutionally-elected president in prison. THAT is the same as disenfranchising 63 million American citizens.
Where is the 2019 John C. Calhoun, who literally left his deathbed to be carried on a stretcher into the Senate Chamber in 1849 where he asked “how can the union be preserved?”
Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Senate minority leader, demanded impeachment weeks ago, stating “the sooner, the better.” At the very beginning of the Trump Administration he made it clear that he would never cooperate on any of the new president’s policies.
AND THE DEMOCRAT PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES?
Where is today’s Daniel Webster who rose from his senate seat to proclaim “I speak today not as a Massachusetts man, nor as a Northern man, but as an American . . . I speak for the preservation of the Union”?
Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Cory Booker (D-NJ), Kamala Harris (D-CA), Bernie Sander (I-VT), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and Kristen Gillibrand* (D-NY), presidential candidates all, have each been campaigning for a headlong rush to destroy America as we know it and as it was founded. And they are now calling for impeachment of the first non-politician president since Ike Eisenhower (1952-1960).
Another presidential candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden, recently & finally jumped on the band wagon** to disenfranchise half of 2016’s voters. They all know their rhetoric is pushing Americans further and further apart. This is what they want because they think they will win the Second Civil War.***
DEMOCRATS OF 1800s TRIED TO AVOID WAR, DEMOCRATS OF 2019 WANT WAR
There is a big difference between statesmen and politicians. This old adage says it best: Politicians worry about the next election and statesmen worry about the next generation. It seems 2019 Democrats can barely see beyond the next news cycle.
In the early years of America’s development, Democrats wanted to maintain slavery of Negros. Now they want to put virtually all Americans into economic slavery and destroy our freedoms.
They believe only President Trump is standing in their way, and forget that Normal Americans love freedom enough to fight for it, to risk their lives for it, to die for it.

*Gillibrand recently dropped out of the Democrat presidential primary campaign.
**Biden desperately needs to deflect from the mounting evidence that he and his son sold out his Vice Presidency in exchange for $$$ MILLIONS $$$ in deals with Ukraine & China.
***Dems believe they will win the Second Civil War. Ha! More delusions!
