Most American voters think the U.S. political system is broken, and more than half think major political uprisings like those recently seen elsewhere around the world are likely to happen in the United States in the next decade.

These are some of the findings from a Fox News poll released Thursday.

10 years is rather optimistic.

The must have surveyed optimists. About 75% of the people I talk with don't see how we can make it through the 2012 election without the fascist democrat party causing massive civil unrest bordering on Civil War. I wish I knew enough of these optimistic folks to understand the reason they're so sure things are not already on a razors edge.

I was thinking more like 2012 the way the libdems
are egging their base on. Especially if they lose.

I’m amazed we are so docile now. Maybe it is the new drugs like SSRIs and Xanax and stuff. In the 1960’s and 1970’s there was a lot of political upheaval and many assassinations but all they had was weed, speed and booze.

Exactly. I’m looking at next summer. The commies aren’t going to let go of the government and the country that easy. It’s going to get ugly.

Please tell me what’s happening right now? Wisconsin, flash mobs, the vast majority of crime committed by dim voters for how long, Congressmen and even the resident implying racism. I think Fox made their definition a little too wide and deep.

Broken and gridlocked??? After the first two years of the Obama administration with Democrats running roughshod over anything in their path? Now, finally, there is at least the House to stop the stampede toward the cliff...and they are saying things are broken and gridlocked? THANK GOD FOR GRIDLOCK if 2008 and 2009 was NOT gridlocked!!!!

Well, the poll said it was mostly tea party members, those with a low education, low income and rural.

Obama is fomenting unrest. They are saying that to disagree is racist.

He is telling them to mobilize.

I also think blacks are largely emotionally spent w Bama because they thought their lives woluld get getter under the messiah and it’s worse now.

Provides fertile ground for unrest.

Foreign intelligence services in their analytical divisions, looking at the US from afar, would come to that conclusion and would indeed have that in their scenarios. In fact, I would not be surprised if there were not already internal cables to their staff in Washington, D.C. and other diplomatic missions, such as consulates near large minority communities, warning their employees and having evac plans in case of widespread American national political/social violence and SNS-generated entitlement mob rule, particularly in the massively dispondent period of early November 2012 to New President Inauguration (inner city disgust at "White America" for voting in droves to remove "Our President), whipped up by many rabblerousers--maybe even Obama himself--seeing as it is no secret he is a narcissist who truly wants the United States destroyed.

Yes, it can and it will get ugly. Very ugly.

I hang out with the Tea Party and consider them VERY smart and tuned to the issues,Oops another lefty theory going down the Toilet! Of course we could look at high school graduations and see who has a problem.

My personal estimate, ~ 2015
The clock is ticking...

If we are lucky only about 20,000,000 people will die
over the years between 2015-2020
About that many will be unable to survive
when the medical system fails

It can be as high as 1/3 our population
That does not include the possibility of
biological warfare, smallpox comes to mind...

The population wide suffering will be egregious

It's kind of sad to realize how profoundly blind most Americans really are.

People talk about uprisings and the like as if it's something that might start in some misty future. Just what the hell do you think the flash mobs are? Psst, don't look now but the revolution started without you. Sure, it will eventually crescendo to unimaginable levels if they perceive passivity on our part, but it's already underway

Depends on your timeframe of "verge", but I completely agree. I'm not the biggest Ayn Rand groupie, but it is creepy how much we are heading down the Atlas Shrugged path. Producers are targets. This has the potential to be a violent Atlas Shrugged scenario.

It might during the time between the November 2012 election and the January inauguration. I suspect that the sore losers will be in the street screaming “racism” and “stolen elections” while a lame duck president attempts to executive order the country into the express lane to hell. Be prepared for a shit-storm like you've never imagined.

Anyone living in a state with either a Dim or pantywaist RINO governor needs to begin making plans NOW to spend next November with friends/family elsewhere.

Reason being: It's the State governors who are responsible for deploying National Guard troops.

Is there anyone here so naive/blind/in denial as to think that when the various shades of looters gang up to incite SHTF before/during/after the election (or sooner) that any spineless Ø-ass-kissing Dim or PC-neutered RINO will have the balls to send boots to the streets with orders to drop these f'n maggots in their tracks ?

I'm now 95% sure we're headed to some kind of civil war.
I don't want it, you don't want, but barring some kind of miracle in keeping with our founding principles, it seems to be coming regardless.

I want very much to be wrong about this.
Having to look back at this post in five years and acknowledge that I'd had too little faith in our fellows would be a huge relief.
That particular meal of crow would taste just fine.

I read an article that said as a percentage of the
population the number of dead in the Civil War today
would be 6 million people.

Of course we have better ways of killing people
now a days.

I can’t understand why? Except, perhaps, that the progressives are calling for Obama to lead a coalition of labor, communists, blacks, academics and welfare recipients “into the streets” to take control of the country. (see Richard Wolffe) Other than that and the flash mobs and union protesters and Islamists demanding Sharia, I can’t imagine any discord.

How do race riots help Zero get re-elected?
