The problem with this type of thinking is that despite a lot of blustery talk, who would know who to shoot? There are no clear boundaries, no enemy territory. You certainly cant separate them as blue state/red state, as often the difference between them is just a few percentage points.
Probably the closest "territorial" divisions would be rural/suburban vs. urban although I do see your point where the physical boundaries are blurred to say the least. If I may though, I'm one of the John Titor enthusiasts (or nuts) where I follow that story of a supposed time traveller from 2036 where he did mention that there are a civil war where you had the rural vs. the urban side where I take it the rurals are the more conservative/libertarian and the urbans are the liberals. Later on, Titor claims the Russians and Red Chinese nuked many of our big cities our of fear and the rurals were kind of grateful to them for doing so.
It is a big mess, I know where you are coming from, but it seems like we have two basic views in this country that are 180 degrees out of phase and there is no true way to reconcile because of that. I know there are subdivisions but generally, most can fall on one side or the other. Maybe a third way is not a Civil War with a bang but the country falls apart as a result of economic collapse, in a whimper if you will and it would take us to rebuild it along with some on the other side who will hopefully wise up.

I repeat myself:
It is amazing how fast some Freepers forget that everyone of us lives in a semi autonomous functional country(state) and the wed hardly notice if FedGov disappeared. Lincoln did a hell of a job destroying the republic.
If FedGov collapses then the state will be the governing body. Yes there will still be socialists and conservatives but no anarchy. Your comment sound stupid, naive. Stop listening to anarchists like Melas who preach anarchy and chaos. Those types are FOS.
