Sufficiency is dictated by whichever army is winning. I think demographics is far more of a concern. I think we'd be looking at the most complex clash of ethnicity and ideology of any civilian uprising in the history of mankind. No doubt a foreign country would attempt to exploit the breakdown, such as China or even Mexican citizenry since they have millions of like-minded comrades already here, many of whom hold powerful positions and jobs in our police force, border patrol, and local governments; They'd turn on us on a dime.
I agree about this question; One of the most thought-provoking questions on FR here of late.
Mexico is not a threat.
They don’t have the population. Or the guns.

(Conservative values help the poor. Liberal values help them STAY poor!!!)
California is a really interesting place.
The way districts are drawn, the liberals control everything but that is not California.
They are very self reliant and hardy.
CA is so plush they could feed the whole world in the central valley.
Anyway, if there were wars it would be the central valley folk and coastal ranches who would pull the asses of the coast lib towns out of the fire.
