Civil War

How do civil wars happen?

Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can't settle the question through elections because they don't even agree that elections are how you decide who's in charge. That's the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.

By many estimates — including one issued by the White House in 2015 — that’s the number of backlogged rape kits stacked and hospitals and police stations around the country

For many in Congress, including Republican U.S Rep. Ted Poe of Texas, the 3rd District’s Jeff Duncan and New York Democrat Carolyn Maloney, that statistic is an outage. They’re among a bipartisan group of lawmakers pushing for more stringent measures not only to reduce the outstanding number of rape kits, but also tamp down on sexual violence in general.
