    Re: They are willing to destroy this country

    The power that be are in fact worried about a violent reaction to the election outcome.

    Here.

    If people really think they could mount an insurrection,they might want to consider what Martial law would be like.

    Re: They are willing to destroy this country

    I am honestly more concerned about Hillary's rhetoric over Russia. That will have much more of an affect than a few riots, which is pretty much all this will amount to, the idea of an outright civil war is absurd.

    Escalating tensions with Russia is a very real possibility, especially with her zany no-fly zone scheme, and that's a global concern.

    There is the Russian Fleet steaming to Syria,though Spain denied them a refueling stop. Tensions are rising on borders in Europe.

    And then there is this.

    Russia unveils 'Satan 2' missile, could wipe out France or Texas, report says.

    Having lived through the Cuban missile crises,this whole thing brings back very negative memories.

    Well at least that makes me feel a little better, but after reading all that, makes me wonder if this election is only the beginning in terms of rising tensions across the country.

    Right, and that's why I said it's kind of a conspiracy theory that I don't entirely believe myself, though I could easily see riots in DC. Now about Russia, that's a difficult question, is it better to stand up to what Russia's doing in the middle east and Ukraine, or just let that be and avoid war with Russia. But even then, I think the likelihood of a war with Russia is pretty low, unless other world leaders follow suit with The Philippines' president and whatnot.

    Oh no, Russia has the capability to attack us! This is obviously a sign of unwarranted aggression towards us!

    Re: They are willing to destroy this country

    This is just how the cold war started,with escalating threats,and the if you build a big bomb,I will build a bigger bomb interaction.

    I lived with this when younger,and thought after the Soviets fell we never needed to see it again,but times change things.

    That's the thing though, the military-industrial complex WANTS an arms race. Big profits in war, especially thanks to no-bid contracts.

    You are correct Sir,there is no money in Peace...

    I was surprised when I learned the origin of that term,Military-industrial complex,it was in fact from this man:



    That is,if you are to young to remember his face,Dwight D. Eisenhower,general during the second world war,and President.

    I think a large problem with the election is that while distracted by a lunatic we ignore the inherent danger that is a Hillary Clinton. That being said we tend to ignore the inherent danger of any presidency from the status quo. The status quo being U.S. hegemony, rampant Imperialism, and working class suppression. The country has been pushed so far Right that the Democrats, while being a Right Wing political entity is viewed as Leftist and even radically Left. Obama's Supreme Court appointee is generally considered Right leaning in America's psuedo-political spectrum. It would stand to reason Clinton's nominees would not be much better.

    On the subject of coups, any sort of uprising would quickly be suppressed. The idea of an armed conflict to retake the country is ridicolous. What would be effective is reorganizing the working class, workers solidarity, and mass unified movements. That has happened before with the Labor movement being the best example. We rely to much on our electoral system and beaurocracy to effect change.

    It has always been easy to view Russia as the bad guys but given that the entire U.S. strategy for the pass 60 years has been one of containing Russia it is easy to understand why they view their security threatened.

    Ike is one of my favorite presidents. Right up there with Coolidge, Reagan, and Carter.
