N.R. Most of us really arent as paranoid as we seem. Most patriots I know take care of themselves and are watchful and mindfull of those who may
wish to infringe on our rights, not just our 2nd Ammendment, but any part of our Constitution. Yes, there are the fanatics looking to usurp any
preceived threat with force, but for the most part, we are peaceful but mindfull.
Alot of the fear you see is perpetuated by our media, China is coming, guns are evil, the economy is doomed, gas prices will force you to starve. Its
a bunch of retoric that the sheeple here believe and help to create this hysteria.
My take on the whole thing is as simple as the Boy Scouts, Be Prepared. Sure the economy may collapse, the Chinesse may come, civil war may break
out, but who knows really? Just as long as you have a good head on your shoulders and pay attention, you should do fine. However, thats my take,
sadly, there are simply too many people and not just Americans feeding into this McCarthy era fear.
As for a civil war in the US? Sure, it could happen. Some think it would be a UN force coming in to create a NWO which I can see the reasoning for
that, some think it could be a class war with the the poor hammering the rich (recent economic troubles lend credibility to this) also others think it
could be a race war. Minorities angry with the whites, whites angry about special benefits for minorities, I could see that as well.
Only time and the powers that be can answer these questions. But for those on the other side of the pond, know there are alot of good Americans who
believe in freedom and honor who arent scared, only prepared to deal with whatever threat comes calling.
