which side do you think would win militarily assuming all the military from both sides sided with their region???  Nukes don't count.

I have no stats but think that most of the important bases are located in the south and the south would win.

Are we assuming the same division as the last time?
If so, why?
What are they fighting about this time? (obviously not slavery again)

Details....need some

I don't know what we'd fight over, but something tells me it would have to do with NASCAR

I have problems even considering it seeing as the country dividing along the lines it did in the 1860s would be insanely improbable.

Interior, Rockies, and the South versus the West Coast, Great Lakes region, and Northeast would be far more workable in today's America.

In which case, the former would win overwhelmingly despite a population disadvantage.

The next civil war will not be between the North and the South.

It will be the Socialists vs. Conservatives, the ones who earn vs the ones who "need", or the People vs. the Govt.

In your scenario I would go with the South though.

It would be East Coast and West Coast vs the rest of the country IMHO.

HOWEVER given the large number of rednecks in the USMC, I would wager that both Camp Lejeune and Camp Pendleton would rise up against their new overlords.

And the Conservatives are WAY better armed than the Socialists.........but the Socialists are more vicious........conservatives need to learn that!!

East Coast above, say, Virginia - yes.

NC, SC, VA, GA, FL, TN, AL, MS, LA, TX all have too much in common for their to be a meaningful split.

Most of you have the "sides wrong".

One side would be from Texas, north to oklahoma and west to the middle or so of California.  

One side would be mid california north to washington and east to roughly the rockies.

Once side would be North of oklahoma to the bcanadian border and east to the mississippi.

The last side would be the whole east coast to the mississippi river.

The truthful, no bullshit answer?

We'd ALL lose.

A significant portion of both populations and infrastructures would be destroyed and we'd devolve into a 3rd-world shit hole in no time flat.

Sorry to shit on everyone's fantasy fest, but any other answer isn't realistic. Modern Civil war is bad news for the country it happens in.

Nobody here is looking for no shit answers to this. You're correct, however.

Too bad so many here don't have anything against a lot of dead Americans.

In your scenario, if the War between the States were fought again, neither side would win. The first War decimated the young men of fighting age. Too many men died.

If that were to happen today, since the US is such an important part of the global economic and political fabric, all mayhem would break out. US economic, technological and military power would be weakened for decades, and the likelihood of countries like China surpassing the US in terms of economic and military might would be accelerated by ten years (current projections are 2020, if that war happened today they would probably surpass us in 2-3 years, even WHILE we were fighting such a war).

The technological, manufacturing and military might of the US would be depleted against itself, instead of leading the GWOT. This would lead to a big WIN by the terrorists and drug czars.

If there was a "winner" it wouldn't be anyone American.

The sun shown bright and clear that day
We all left Washington
To lick the Rebel boys in grey
At the Battle of Bull Run
They came from Pennsylvania and some from Maryland
To see the Rebel boys get spanked by Honest Abe’s broad hand

We said we’ll run ‘em to Atlanta and to Galveston Bay
But they ran us back to Washington and Philadelphia
And Philadelphia

The ladies wore their brightest shawls
The gentlemen were gay
They came to see their Yankee boys whip old Virginia
I held my momma’s hand and skipped
When a soldier said to me
Would you rather have Jeff Davis’ hat or the sword of Bobbie Lee

We said we’ll run ‘em to Atlanta and to Galveston Bay
But they ran us back to Washington and Philadelphia
And Philadelphia

And then the general doffed his hat and said let’s rest a spell
And for the first time we all heard that awful rebel yell
The waters of MANASSAS creek became a ruby red
and many a Reb and Yankee boy lay in the willows dead

We said we’ll run ‘em to Atlanta and to Galveston Bay
But they ran us back to Washington and Philadelphia
And Philadelphia

A fight locked in the chest of time too horrible to tell
Virginny’s true green countryside became a lake of hell
Don’t count your chicks before they’re hatched
Or you work until it’s done
Remember, yes, remember long the Battle of Bull Run

We said we’ll run ‘em to Atlanta and to Galveston Bay
But they ran us back to Washington and Philadelphia
And Philadelphia
