Guns/NRA/GOP - what if it's not just the money/campaign contributions?

(I can't sleep, I had this awful thought & just had to get out of bed to write it out.)

What if the ultimate reason behind the GOP's steadfast refusal to entertain even the very mildest of limits on the wide-open availability of every kind of firearm and ammunition, is that they actively WANT their supporters to be as well-armed as possible, in anticipation of an actual hot civil war? A civil war between the RWNJs and the much-maligned "Liberals" that develops into a real, actual shooting war?

There is nothing that the GOP and the right wing/fascists won't do to stay in power. They have no interest in governing, only in ruling. They have no interest in policies that would benefit the citizens of our country as a whole, and certainly no interest in compromise. Their only interest is power, and the financial rewards that come with it.

Their goal has long been permanent Republican majority, and they will cheat, lie, steal, and break any law, break any norm to achieve it.

And if their actions eventually bring on a new civil war, they'd be fine with it. Because they will have made sure that their most fanatic and zealous supporters are armed to the teeth, and are ready and willing to mow down any and all resistance with the arsenals they have accumulated.

What if the GOP isn't just comprised of assholes - what if the GOP has an inner core of adherents who are not just willing, but are actively preparing to promote a real war with the aim of eliminating all opposition to their permanent control of our country?

I can't sleep...

1. They're already well on their was

toward their goal of bankrupting us and slowly killing us by taking away health care, Medicare and S. Security so I wouldn't be surprised. I wouldn't put anything past these sociopaths. They are capable of anything.

2. I'm sorry you can't sleep

But there is no ultimate plan. They are not that organized. They are greedy, piss poor excuses for human beings. Their goal is to maximize their personal profit. They will flip and turn on one another at the drop of a hat. This will be their undoing. Go Mueller!

6. Gates is flipping.

Trumpy will be known as Donny Rico.

What will Junior do when he canít play big shot because Daddy lost all of his assets from a RICO case?

3. The GOP supports white wing racists, and they are the majority of gun-fanciers.

4. Exactly. These are people who would have no compunction about shooting the "other"

if they've been riled up enough to believe that the "other" is immediately endangering their way of life.

"Liberals" are definitely among those who qualify as "other".

7. Poor people paying to kill each other

Is a double win for the rich. Whether it be guns, sugar, tobacco, alcohol or pharmaceuticals.
Kick that money on up here and fucking die already. Besides its not like private schools are getting shot up.
Now a civil war outside the gated communities would be a pretty sweet deal for them but I think it really is more about the money. A civil war just isnt gonna happen between citizens without being put down pretty quick. It would take a lot of crazies to stand up to be a serious threat to our military and police

8. There is nothing wrong about wondering "what if"...

We all do it.

Just try and not let it prevent you from sleeping.

You need that rest.

It gives you he mental and physical strength to fight on.
