There is increasing talk about civil war. Keep in mind that Civil War one was caused by taxes.
Abraham Lincoln said war was over taxes, not slavery - al.com

Jun 26, 2015 - Abraham Lincoln repeatedly stated his war was caused by taxes only, and not by slavery, at all.

Civil War one (the war of northern aggression) was caused in large part by the northern bankers.
"The President thus took great satisfaction in signing into law the National Currency Act, which created the national banking system and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency as its supervisor. Although promoted partly as a wartime measure (the new national banks were required to purchase government bonds as security for the bank notes they issued),"
Once again, we see the Central Bank issuing currency instead of the treasury.

Civil War One used a geographic divide, ie, North vs South.
The coming insurrection won't be near so clearly defined / divided.
Civil War one pitted the hard-money followers of Jackson against the flexible money people like Treasury Secretary Salmon P. Chase.

Lincoln argued that the hard money taxes just sat in government vaults until the government was ready to spend it. The flexible money argued that this tax money could be multiplied many times over and, used to finance all kinds of productive enterprise.
The previous War of 1812 was strictly an attack by England to bankrupt America and force open the economy to big European bankers. Andrew Jackson resisted.
English born Richard Lawrence shot Jackson but, did not kill him.

Eventually, the European bankers got control of the American economy through the Federal Reserve. They have siphoned off many $ trillions and fomented many expensive wars.
