I disagree with your post OP.
Let me break it down this way.
I appreciate the response.
A. Both parties are selling fear. Clinton is selling fear of Trump "We have to defeat Trump at all costs" and Trump is selling fear of ISIS and
Illegal immigration etc. We know that selling fear is never a good thing. It's taking advantage of people and a way of not talking about the real
problems we face.
Clinton is selling far more fear than just that. The OP shows fear of Russia, the wealthy, climate change, guns, and treatment of blacks and
immigrants. Why do you give them a pass for this?
As far as fear never being a good thing, that is also shown in the third section of the OP. Fear allows us to get prepared for problems. Why do
people save money, for fear a situation may come up when they need it. Why do we have a military, for fear that someone may attack us, why have fire
fighters, for fear that a fire may occur, etc.
And talking about real problems, what like the economy? Well Obama and Hillary say that just talking about the economy being bad is fear
B. Talking about fear...did you know that your more likely to die from eating McDonald's "food" or walking up and down your stairs than
getting killed by ISIS. Why don't we talk about those two more pressing problems?
People do talk about these things, and fear them. Why do so many people exercise, for fear that the will get ill or die if they are in poor shape.
Yet you say all fear is bad.
These are problems that we live with that are inevitable, and within our personal control. Terrorism is increasing in the US and the west, and to say
we should just love it and not fear it is a joke. Should we not attempt to stop a terrorist from getting a WMD then? I mean, to even think of that
is fear mongering, so just let them go. I would contend to you that if we didn't have agencies like the police, military, etc, agencies that exists
because our fear of not wanting to be harmed, there would be much more violence and terrorism.
C. Love, Empathy, caring for your fellow humans is the way to conquer all of this. In the old days it was called being raised in a village
where everyone did their part FOR the village and each other. These days it's every man for himself.
The old days huh. Sounds like you are trying to make America great again...
I am sure, but this is juvenile. Love does not conquer all. How will love solve terrorism? How will it solve the economy, or veterans health
issues? The entire last three posts from the OP shows how ridiculous this is for each situation we see. No money to feed your kids, just give them
love! Have agonizing pain from a wound in Afghanistan, just love it!
Warm and fuzzy phrases like love conquers all do nothing, and allow real problems to continue on un challenged.
D. All of this fear mongering is really only a way to divide us. Watch FOX news. NOT the news shows but the pundits like Hannity and
O'Reilly...there only job is to divide us with fear...Obama is stepping on the constitution. Liberals are doing this to you. There is a war on
Christmas. Radical Islam is our greatest threat. All lies of course.
You are taking situations of possible over fearing and using that to say no fear is ever justified. War on Christmas, I could care less about.
Islamic terrorism, yeah I care. Good for you you don't live in Europe. They shared your love, and look where that has gotten them.
I like how you just point out Fox, but don't mention that the vast amount of the media is liberal, and they not only do this, but according to the
leaked emails, they do so at the behest of the DNC.
Let me pose this question to you, if Obama is stepping on the Constitution, are we allowed to call him out on it, or is this dividing us?
Also, Isn't you calling out Fox just another extension of dividing us, especially because you ignore the other side? So congrats on dividing us
E. Do as I do. Hope for the best and prepare for the worst. My whole family knows hand to hand combat. We have dogs. We have months of
food, Solar power, Bicycles, motorcycles, Tools, books and skills and items to barter. The result. We aren't scared of anything and live our lives
But your original fear led to that preparation. So Trump talks about the increase in violent crime in the past year, and strained race relations for
example, and this is fear mongering. Yet how are we able to take the steps to solve this if we can't address the problem without it being considered
fear mongering? If you had no fear of running out of food, why would you have ever stocked up?
F. People that peddle and believe the fear mongering are cowards. They should go hide in a corner and stop spewing their fear and negativity
to the rest of us.
Right, that is the second point in the OP. Lets start with this then, you believe that anyone who discusses of fears climate change or guns are
cowards, right? That means you think Hillary and Obama and almost all of their supporters are cowards.
You fear nothing, what a big man you are! A parent fears that if they lose their job they won't be able to provide for their family. What a coward,
The left like to rag on bullys, but what you and they are doing here is no better than a bully yelling "Chicken! Bwock bwock bwock!"
Well you go on being a real man while us cowards deal with the real world. I hope though you never find yourself in a sitaution when you are in fear
and need help, you may just get the karma you deserve.
