I guess what you say makes perfect sense, if you ignore a Truck driving through a crowd in Germany and France, and an airport attack in Belgium, and a night club attack in Orlando, and the Jihadist Couple.....
Yep - totally unfounded fear.
Nothing to see here.
Do you know how idiotic you are being Baby Hitler?
Afraid of Trumps unbridled power, but silent about Obama's overreaches.
I guess you are just afraid he might be Conservative.
Don't worry - he isn't.
I don't want to upset BH too much so, I'll say this rather indirectly. People who have seen the nasty side of human beings first hand and some of things they do, usually come away from it with a whole new outlook in life and politics. It sort of changes you forever, and its something you never escape. You cannot flee from it, and you just never feel the same sort of naive sense of innocence again.
Its easy to role our eyes and sneer now, but if you haven't experienced that, you never know how you will react. Yes I know words are easy, until you experience it for yourself. I know I always consider the "Whatif's"
where ever I go, and especially if I'm out alone or with my family. I think like a survivor and want to be wherever I have the greatest advantage in the event something unexpected occurs.
In those critical situations you can panic like sheep and die like sheep, or stand and fight.
That particular idea (stand and die or die fighting)
is profoundly important in military and LEO circles as it is still part of fundamental training today.
Some of the greatest minds understood this from our Native American Chiefs to arguably the greatest tactician and battlefield strategist - Sun Tzu, an ancient Chinese strategist who's works were published titled: The Art of War
. I believe some of the material in our own War College has excerpts from that expose because they are so meaningful.
One of the things I always carry with me is my old Army unit motto, "Lead, Follow or get the Hell out of the Way," and "Stay ready to keep from having to get ready." That is something that has stayed with me all the time I served overseas and throughout my career.
