Toilet Paper

If we all go back into time. .. two years ago.... when toilet paper was the biggest commodity on the shelf... actually the biggest commodity lacking on the shelf. People will not let the idea of going without toilet paper.

Why I am posting this.....

If the deplorable decide to do a civil war... those supply lines will be cut and toilet paper will not be on shelves.....

Neither would food, medicine....electricity... gas and fuel...


War is brutal! It took decades for the south to get back from reconstruction....

If deplorables are wanting to fight for the orange man... then, they need to rethink what they are doing...

1. There will be no civil war like the one in the 1860s.

The divisions in this country are not defined by state lines; entire states will not get together to form a government and an army and try to secede. I can imagine targeted assassinations and small outbreaks of armed attacks on government properties and officials, more along the lines of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, but not a civil war as in 1860-64.

6. Wouldn't corncobs be a bit harsh?

At least until we get used to them, I suppose

4. The next "Civil War" will be rural enclaves defying Federal and State authority

Red state counties will establish "local control" as the Bundy's did at Malheur, but on a county level. Oath Keeper Sheriffs will support them.

The difference is that the roadblocks they establish will isolate the populations from outside services, supplies, and medicines. The rebels will discover that the hegomony they assumed within these enclaves will not be as robust as they predicted. Their fantasies of self-reliance will melt under the pressures of economic reality.

People can't eat ammunition. They will tire of the freeze-dried cashe of food in that plastic bucket that they bought from Jim Bakker. There will not be enough to go around. The National Guard has the means to defeat these fools, and after losing patience, they will to do it. The Nazis, Redout nuts, Klansmen, survivalists, secessionists, and all the red hat nuts will wither and retreat. Guerilla warfare will continue for some time, but the reality of the movement's futility will set in, and the "real people" will move on.

They like the spoils of being part of a larger nation.

5. If supply lines are cut, toilet paper will not be the only

thing in short supply.

I do a very small amount of stockpiling of basics these days. When I open up the large (for me) package of toilet paper -- I typically buy the twelve roll pack -- I then purchase another such package. I live alone, so that much tp lasts at least a couple of months.

I do the same for a few other things.

I'm sure it's possible that some who might want to see us desperate for toilet paper currently have a three years supply stashed away, but not very many. They will suffer just as much from cut supply lines as the rest of us.
