Hillary Clinton’s election could have disastrous consequences.
Her policies and Nixonian penchant for secrecy and punishing her enemies concern many Americans.
But some are starting to question if her election could provoke even more deadly political action.
Public Policy Polling conducted a survey in Texas where they asked if Texans supported secession.
Only 26% of respondents answered yes.
But when asked if Hillary Clinton wins the election would Texans then support secession, that number jumped all the way up to 40%, with only 48% opposed.
That number was even greater among supporters of Donald Trump — which made up 50% of the survey.
The Houston Chronicle reports:
If anyone needs proof that the presidential race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton truly is dividing the country, they should look to Texas.
According to poll results from Public Policy Polling released Tuesday, three out of five Texans who support Donald Trump said they would support seceding from America if Hillary Clinton becomes president. ..
… According to the polling results from PPP, only one out of four Texans support seceding from America generally. But when faced with the possibility of a President Hillary Clinton, a majority of Texans said they’d rather leave.
And that’s not all.
A woman at a Mike Pence rally asked the Vice Presidential nominee if Hillary Clinton would start another Civil War by taking people’s guns away.
The Hill reports:
“If Hillary Clinton wins the election … and she’s on that Second Amendment, taking your guns away, there is going to be a civil war in this state” or elsewhere in the country, the woman who identified herself as Brenda predicted, to some applause in Albuquerque, N.M.
“But, if President Trump would win,” the woman continued, to hollers from the crowd, “there’s also going to be a war, because Obama is going to pull that martial law on the United States.”
“Brenda, Hillary Clinton is not going to be elected President of the United States,” Pence responded. “It’s not going to happen.”
The Vice Presidential contender spoke of Trump’s crowd sizes, referencing the woman’s earlier point about his standing in polls, and dismissed polling showing Clinton ahead.
“There’s only one poll that matters, and it’s the one they finish up on Election Day,” he said.
Pence continued with the campaign’s theme of swiping at the media, saying the news is “focusing on semantics” with Trump lately and ignoring “misdeeds” concerning Clinton’s tenure at the State Department.
“I have to turn on the TV with a stick these days,” Pence said.
Gun owners are afraid of Hillary Clinton’s position on guns because she has made it clear her goal is to disarm Americans.
She favors a so-called “assault weapons” ban.
Her website lists creating a national gun registration database as one of her “gun safety” reforms.
Hillary has also been recorded telling supporters the Supreme Court was “wrong” in the landmark Heller case, which held for the first time that the Second Amendment protected an individual’s right to own a firearm.
But most chillingly, Hillary has spoken favorably about Australia’s gun confiscation program.
Many gun owners are worried a Hillary victory will lead to her putting her plan of gun databases, gun bans and, ultimately, confiscation of firearms into action.
