1. It won't be a 'civil war' but more accurately, it will be a second Revolutionary War where a hostile government wanting control over the new settlement(s) dispatched regulated troops to disarm the populace to accomplish their goal. It was after being at war for over a year with Britain, the Declaration of Independence was written and ratified in 1776 which contains one of the most succinct and powerful statements ever written, apart from the Bible of course:

Quote
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Eleven years after, the Constitution was written which formed a government that was responsible to protect the citizens from any one who would deny the inalienable rights given to them by either "natural law" or "divine law", depending upon who of the original signees you asked. The Constitution more fundamentally limited the government and the amended "Bill of Rights" enumerated the freedoms and rights which belonged to all citizens and of which the government had no power to infringe upon.

2. Thus, biblically when Jesus said to give unto Caesar what is Caesar, and Paul wrote that Christians were to obey those over them (government), those who refused to bow down to the British King and pay the incredible burden of taxes put upon them stood upon solid ground since the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution established their government and the citizens thereof as free men under God. In the days ahead, the Socialist/Communists who have now cheated their way into power will have full reign to trample upon those two documents more than they have ever been able to do before. And those citizens who recognize ONLY the true government which is established and bound by those two documents will not allow their rights to be diminished, destroyed or denied. The means by which citizens can resist such tyranny is provided in the Second Amendment:

Quote
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

The Supreme Court has ruled in the majority of cases that citizens of this country have the inalienable right to 'keep and bear arms' for several purposes, e.g., to fight against tyranny both from without and within the country, for self defense, hunting, recreation and competitive sports. The line to be crossed by most which will surely end in war is this Second Amendment. For, it is the last resort means of defending those freedoms and rights guaranteed to its citizens. This is what makes the United States so unique and so clearly different from every other country in the world both in the past and until now. Many of us are deeply thankful for the freedoms guaranteed to us and enjoy. And, of course, those few of us who are genuinely Christian know that it is God's mercy and providence which has granted us those rights and freedoms. To us, they are most certainly worth fighting for and dying for... God, family and country. The Gadsden flag and the American flag go before us and we are proud to be Americans. grin
