The Next American Civil War is Upon Us - Our Politics are Out of Control

One of my articles, “The Next American Civil War is Upon Us” has been growing in popularity on my blog – So much so, I decided to do this shortened podcast version here. Please check out the full version and subscribe to my blog while you’re at it. I will appreciate it. 

Here begins a short preview of what you will hear in this episode, "Yesterday, the media declared Joe Biden as President-Elect of the United States. People celebrated. People lamented. It was the very spark of a new civil war. You see, many are under the impression that the media calls out the winner of the election. They do not. When George Bush ran against Al Gore for the US Presidency, the media declared Al Gore as the winner. Yet, there were recounts and indeed George Bush was the winner, much to the chagrin of Al Gore supporters. Today, history is repeating itself before our very eyes. However, this time, I think the effects will be far worse for our country."
