How volatile is the USA these days? - Amerifag opinions wanted!

We're headed for a Civil War within a generation, but it's still at the pissy shouting-at-each-other phase.

If you had a brain filter to just shut out people talking about news, you wouldn't notice anything in 99% of the country. Only a few places like Portland and San Francisco have regular problems with political fighting.

However, I believe (and pray to God) that we're on a terminal path towards a violent breakdown.

The Civil Rights era was worse and the country didn't fracture so I highly doubt a liberal temper tantrum because Hillidawg lost will cause one.

And why do you want the US to fall into anarchy?

Maybe.

I want war both as a punishment for the indolent fuckheads who let the country get to this point, as well as an opportunity to (if the Right won) wipe out a huge chunk of Leftist intellectuals and politicians. I will accept decades of Franco-style poverty in exchange for seeing Michael Moore walked into a death camp.

Uh you do know if the US tears itself apart it wouldn't be in a vacuum right?

I'm sure China and Mexico would love to fuck our shit up.

That's fine by me. I've been told countless times that I look Mexican (black hair and tan skin from constantly riding bicycle) and the lighter Mexican women are my waifus, maybe even moreso than Japs. I'll pass, fuck Mexican chicks, and be part of the new castizo ruling class.

My view is that a lot of places that haven't been directly impacted by current events, like illegal immigration or the opioid crisis or manufacturing jobs going away, are pretty much continuing like normal. For all the hysteria on the media and on the internet, most places have been more or less chugging along just fine since the recession. Most people you meet and interact with are really just normal people.

I'm going to be the dissenting voice here. I live nearabouts the Seattle area. The Democrats have been in power almost my whole life. They've basically been rigging elections with our crooked "top two" primary system, and in some cases magically finding "new" ballots if a Republican wins so that they can win via a recount.

In the last 20 years it has been gradually falling apart. Beggars, crazies, druggies, and other various stinking bums are everywhere. Scumbags have been attracted to my area for a while through The Evergreen State College, but our pot legalization a few years ago made the bum population explode.

Infrastruture is falling apart and the city wastes all its money on garbage like making the city the most LGBT-friendly in America. We have more Pride flags than American flags. We have Pride parades instead of Veterans Day parades.

Idiots elected a leftist-professor as port comissioner, and so we banished military ships from our harbor. I could go on and on. My city sucks now and is littered with human feces and drug needles.

This is just my corner of the country, but I wouldn't consider any of the locals to be particularly volatile, even politically. I think the worst, most egregious political happening in this area was a couple of pussyhatters on the side of the road holding up signs about abortion. Outside of that? Nothing really.

Avoid the inner cities like Marty McFly avoiding his past self in BttF2 and you're good fam. Lot of suburbs are nice, most of the cancer is in more (in)famous places such as Portland and Atlanta

I'm not Americans but know a little about the veil of deception of U.S political parties. The Democratic and Republican parties have more similar interests than you think. And since you're in Seattle I'm sure you're well aware of the skyrocketing housing prices. Your Democrats are probably interested in nothing more than fueling the interest of the wealthy. Republicans would do the same thing.

In terms of the druggies, beggars, tents, needles etc. that's ''Austerity'' for you. Rich don't want to pay taxes to deal with this crap so it keeps continuing. Organizations that are supposed to deal with this are stretched to the bone.

Clean up to get rid of these people, get them clean or into some housing unit would take a tax that almost no one seems to be willing to pay. Cores of cities are being destroyed because of this, even nice areas are going to waste.

Pretty volatile if you ask me.

The battle between the left and the right is no longer over how to run the country, it's whether we have the country at all, the left has made it loud and clear that they would enthusiastically shred the Constitution and dismantle the United States to start over from scratch.

There's no way that schism, if it continues, isn't going to eventually lead to a shooting match.

If that's you on your profile pic I'm very sure you wouldn't survive long in like American Civil War II.

Besides: USA, bestest and coolest place in the world (after Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and some European countries), fuck yeah!

Agreed, but I think we're also still kind of in the early stages of that schism and the trend may be stopped in the near future, especially with COVID-19 wrecking everyone's shit at all levels.

As bad as things are right now, it was even more volatile in the 1960's and 1970's, to the point that a lot of people on the far left and far right were convinced the United States would collapse in on itself, and this attitude was very pronounced from 1968 up until 1981 or so.

The 70's was a hotbed of political extremism and domestic terrorism, and most of it was actually left-wing groups like Weather Underground, the Black Panthers, the SLA, and the more hard left Puerto Rican separatists.

However, most of them went dark in the early 80's. Some went to prison or were otherwise locked out of society, but most of the New Left faded into the background and slowly ingrained themselves into mainstream institutions, particularly the academic world (which was also compromised by the KGB in the 50's and 60's)

There was also a huge upswing in right-wing hardliners too like The Minutemen, The Order, The National Alliance, and the Christian Identity movement's peak years.

You also had psycho fringe groups like the National Socialist League who were literal gay Nazis with a fierce antisemitic and anti-Christian streak, and the Uptown Rebels (basically the Atomwaffen of the 70's and 80's, except a lot more violent and competent and mostly confined to the Chicago area)

The infamous Militia movement of the 80's and 90's really got its start in the late 60's and 70's as a result of the political chaos.

We've been in a similar malaise throughout the 2010's, and it can be debated it's been going on since the late 2000's.

But COVID-19 is a massive black swan event nobody saw coming and its throwing everyone a big curveball. I think it's going to be what ultimately kills the SJW zeitgeist of the 2010's in the long run, but the question is what happens after.

Really, it all comes down to how both the 2020 Election and the ongoing lockdowns will finally play out.

Most of the insanity you read about online or in the news is either manufactured or greatly exaggerated by the media and political operatives (or really, random fat losers with delusions of being such) on social media. There's some genuine rot in the entire country's overall political infrastructure but I'd say it's not enough to spark a genuine collapse or civil war for at least 30-50 years if not later without some sort of major and unprecedented inciting incident.
