The Unspoken Civil War in America

       For many years there has been a divide among American citizens. Whether caused by race, religion or a number of asinine reasons, people have raged at one another. Within the last 4 years or so that rage has grown. Race baiting and sexual orientation have dangled a carrot in front of people with a want for hate, leading us down a path to destruction.
       People hate cops, preists, shop owners, Christians, Jews, Muslims, LGBT members....the list is longer than most rap sheets of career criminals. Now people hate the president for doing what the last president also did. They hate the president for using executive orders to usurp previous executive orders. They hate because the person they wanted to be in office lost. That's it. Now comes the part I don't like seeing.
         There are protests, which is perfectly fine. Protest what you don't believe in. Stand up for your cause. Be aware though, once you destroy property or harm people, it is no longer a peaceful, legal protest. At that point you become a criminal and a terrorist. And for every insane act of stopping violence and intolerance by being violent and intolerant, you trigger a larger war against humanity.
          Mark my words, within months there will be blood spilled across this country in a war like no other. Between religious zealots and people causing harm in the name of peace, our land will be rocked to its core. My only hope is that we can survive it and rebuild.
