Actually, a civil war (whatever form it takes and however gradually it picks up momentum) could even be catalyzed if the pugs blatantly steal their 3rd Presidential election.
It’s obvious to life forms on Jupiter that the ONLY way McCain/Palin could win this presidential election (my God, look at the poll numbers!) would be if Diebold black boxes (dem in, pug out) and thousands of Republican strategies to discount, miscount, or intimidate Democratic voters, killed the soul of Democracy once again at the voting place.
We already know they're going to try to steal the election, just as we know Sarah Palin is trying to incite pickup, gun rack, good ol' boy psychopaths in her audience to get beered up and assassinate Barack Obama. Boy, behind those 20 year old glasses and hairdo is a leering devil from hell.
So, what happens if the fascist/pugs DO steal the election and McCain gives out in the first year? Sarah Palin is what happens. That evil airhead would be PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
I don't think so. I really don't. There's too many MILLIONS of Americans who would, let's just say, "intervene". Probably, first they would try to dethrone her with diplomacy and deal making, but by now we have leaned that this woman/thing would eat her children if she thought it would give her more power. Remember, she let in slip in the Biden debate that even as VP she wants to be more powerful than Cheney.
Sarah Palin is an infinitely hypocritical religious fanatic who would continue to spit into the face of Mother Nature. Indeed, this is probably the main reason we would have to pull this woman like a tooth out the halls of power. The Earth absolutely can't afford a "President Palin" (God, it makes you puke to even say those words).
Look, may we use marriage as an example? To begin with, marriage is often at least mildly positive, but frequently one or both of the spouses realize this was the ultimately stupid and self destructive choice they ever made in their life. Sound familiar. Yeah, I bet it does!
So what happens? Well, for the people with spiritual grit, you bite the bullet and say goodbye (usually forever) to all the religious crap that keeps imprisoning you in an institutional prison. In short, you don't just divorce your spouse, you ALSO (and this can be much more difficult) divorce the oppressive religious mind set which has probably programmed the whole of your life.
