Pentagon: Russian Troll Farm activity increases 2000%, Spread propaganda, disinformation and instill paranoia in Western Democratic institutions. In another forum that has an OT Politics CR I frequent Admins removed 4 Russian Trolls that were operating 55 accounts.They had attempted to register another 22 accounts but mistakenly didn't disguise their IP. Luckily the website is owned and operated by a very large blue chip company- they had the tools, resources and, most importantly, the intent to identify and remedy the problem.
Once again the common goal of Russia= Chaos, propaganda and wear, break down our Democratic institutions with the intention of eventually once again being a world power.

Re: The biggest threat to major upheaval in the US is immigration. A major civil war took place in this country in the 1860's for the exact same dynamic facing the country now. That's why it baffles me as to why Russia would try to influence the election toward a Trump victory. Seems like a Hillary victory would have led even more of a breakdown in this country.

The Dynamic is the same. Fear. Remember most people in the south didn't own slaves, nor had any say on the matter. You needed to be wealthy to own slaves. The attitude was that since the Govt was responsible for bringing slaves here, the govt should be responsible for bringing them back, not dump them on their communities. They feared what the freed slaves might feel justified to do to their communities if the US government decided to just place them in those communities in the south. This fear is a major reason why southerners took up arms on this issue. And right now, many are afraid of what Middle Eastern immigrants, many whom have been victims of US military aggression in the middle east, might feel justified to do to their communities if allowed to freely roam in the US. Its the same dynamic.

"The biggest threat to major upheaval in the US is immigration. A major civil war took place in this country in the 1860's for the exact same dynamic facing the country now."

My post was about Russian Trolls. Why do you detract from the topic and ignore the facts?

I suggest you research further as you couldn't be further from the truth.
Pulitzer Prize-winning author James McPherson writes that, "The Civil War started because of uncompromising differences between the free and slave states over the power of the national government to prohibit slavery in the territories that had not yet become states. When Abraham Lincoln won election in 1860 as the first Republican president on a platform pledging to keep slavery out of the territories, seven slave states in the deep South seceded and formed a new nation, the Confederate States of America. The incoming Lincoln administration and most of the Northern people refused to recognize the legitimacy of secession. They feared that it would discredit democracy and create a fatal precedent that would eventually fragment the no-longer United States into several small, squabbling countries.

There are other reasons (economic, state versus federal "right to rule", etc) but I've yet to see anything about Slavery being a part of democracy.
I know 3 recent immigrants from the ME and they would love to go back home but can't for fear of starvation, death, disease and war.

I was moreso responding to this part of your message "Once again the common goal of Russia= Chaos, propaganda and wear, break down our Democratic institutions with the intention of eventually once again being a world power."

"The Dynamic is the same. Fear."
Hate is almost always aligned with fear and Trump has propagated that theme. LMAO to see all these lemmings running off the cliff in fear of their lives. GROW some Nads for Gawd sakes.

"You needed to be wealthy to own slaves."
By 1860, there were more millionaires (slaveholders all) living in the lower Mississippi Valley than anywhere else in the United States.

"The attitude was that since the Govt was responsible for bringing slaves here, the govt should be responsible for bringing them back."
Where do you get this stuff? The first slaves were brought over by the Dutch and slavery was largely run by the wealthy businessmen and not the Govt. although certain states did support slavery.
