RE: Are we headed for a civil war?

Whether or not we choose to unite or divide on any given issue is a decision by the individuals. You and I choose whether or not to get behind a given program or candidate, they do not unite us or divide us.

For example, was Abraham Lincoln a uniter or a divider? Would the uSA have been better to have chosen Douglass, who ran as a uniter?

RE: Are we headed for a civil war?

George Bush is not considered by his detractors as a uniter largely because he has failed to support and put forward policies that are supported by "the people", but rather has chosen to put forward a divisive agenda that is only supported by about half the people. While the division is ultimately caused by personal choice, it is driven by the personal choice of multitudes. President Bush has divided our country and divided the world during his presidency throught the choices he has made, so IMO it is his fault. We are worse for it.
Apparently, Bush supporters aren't for government responsibility and accountability, since NOTHING is ever Bush's fault. Now the division of the country over Bush's policies isn't his fault but our (the people he's supposed to be representing) own fault instead. Makes sense[:p]

Bush, uniter not divider, has managed to divide us to the point where people are talking about civil war.

Division in this country has been going in that direction a LOT longer than Bush's predidency.

Current:
1995 E-320, 163*** miles
1987 190-E 16-valve, 150*** miles

Former:
1980 300-D, approx. 225*** miles, donated to the National Kidney Foundation.
1980 240-D, 297500 miles, totalled when hit by innatentive driver. Missed dearly.

Right Sflori. And in that respect KVining and his multiple personnas are wrong. People are in control of themselves. The unite/divide only goes so far.
