Not so much a "civil war', but rather a "banana republic struggle".

The very constitution, and thus THE Constitution, must be made "a lie", at least in the "important parts". This will be done by redefinition of the language itself.

Any "assuagement" will be taken as weakness, and repaid with greater ferocity than before.

Each side will retrench and bulwark when they have power. Friendly territories will be carved out and walled off.

"Safety Committees" will claim "extraordinary powers" in their territory to maintain "the peace".

A demand will be made to "hold onto elected power" past the "spoil date" of that elected power.

...not sure what happens after this point.

Should be quite interesting.

Aloha! :) <shaka nui!>

Cold as in the Cold War of 1945-1991, and not Hot like the CoC WWIII would be.

I'm not sure how a "civil war" could BE a "cold" war.

..it just seems an utterly oxymoronic "definition", or description.

That which allows a "cold war" to continue to exist is (physical) distance between the "combatants". There is no real distance between "civil war" combatants, which allows a "critical mass" to develop and get crazy hot.

My (probably flawed) basic argument is that without an actual "hard" border between the combatants a cold war can't truly exist, and I don't see enough of a "hard border" within the US to allow for the aforesaid "cold" conflict.

And by "hard border" I mean an actually "difficult to traverse" territorial demarcation.
