You're asking us if we would support something which just wouldn't happen. No one would be put into any internment camp. Stop being such a drama queen.So, just got done arguing with my relatives who are upset we're leaving the US.
I told them the rhetoric concerning "New War on Domestic Terrorism..." is the writing on the wall.
I said: "Imagine if jihadis launched another attack on the US, and Biden/Mitch/Cheney/Clinton and the MSM started up the war drums to invade the Middle East AGAIN, and conservatives like us, real conservatives, who stood up to obstruct and protest such a war were labelled as "jihadist sympathizers," and thrown in to concentration camps/gitmo, would you support the establishment in going to war to throwing your country men into camps for protesting/obstructing such a war?"
"I will do and go along with whatever MY PRESIDENT SAYS," is how she responded.
And I said..."That's exactly why I am bringing my family and business to Brazil. And btw, your husband (my brother) will now how to pay his own car leases (two leases that I've been paying for a several years). Good luck to you Catherine...by the way, did they ever find those weapons of mass destruction?" Then I hung up the phone.
To answer the question you asked in your title, and not the fanciful, sky-is-falling scenario you seemed to dream up:
If we were attacked and the President wanted to retaliate? I would support him 100%. But here's the thing: I would do that knowing that my neighbor who might not support it isn't going to end up in a cell.
Two things: First, your thread title is misleading. Second, severing ties with family over a political difference is stupid...
