A closer look at McCain's base
Following right along from our last posting, maybe if we are really lucky even an Obama victory could turn out to our advantage? Just take a look at these McCain-Palin supporters if you are wondering what I mean. Do you see how outraged they are and how all fired up they have become? These are angry people who are genuinely afraid of what Obama might do if he takes the White House.
Following the 1860 election the South precipitated a civil war by seceding from the union during the winter of 1860-61. They had no rational grounds for doing that, but they had convinced themselves that Lincoln would tear up the constitution and lead an army south to destroy them. They decided to get the retaliation in first, in other words.
So, is it possible that the Americans could start fighting each other once again? That's a long shot, but they might start fighting politically and bog themselves down in political strife that could take years to resolve.
If the Americans are quarrelling amongst themselves, then they aren't disturbing anyone else, are they?
