As bad as things are...they aren't that bad yet. I am the ast mngr of a farm supply store and I have plenty of customers laying down $100 dollar
bills and buying stuff...fencing, feed, gates, equipment...that means they are planning for the future...that means they see good times ahead....
Trust me, you aren't fencing in pastures and feeding cattle without a payday somewhere...
Further, all of the adjoinig business in sight are doing well...the restuarants are busy, have a new store opening up beside us...I see new cars and
trucks in the parking lot.
There are challenges, but life is full of them and we all struggle to overcome them. BUT, life is pretty good overall.... it will have to get a lot
worse for people to seriously rebel. Remember, even in the American Revolution, only 30% of the colonists wanted independence from England.
Most of the people I talk to want to resolve the problems in a civil and civic fashion...voting, calling and writing representatives, civil protests
and demonstrations...we actually had a couple here in town and one in our parking lot...I get invited to planning and protests about once a
month....all by concerned citizens.
That is the American way...town halls and in a civil fashion. HOWEVER...
Once those options are exercised and closed...let me assure you, Americans will fight.... the reason we hesitate is once you go down that road, there
is no going back. Many people here in the southern US have relatives that served in the last Civil War and we all have the stories and letters and
recollections and history books and pictures to prove how terrible it was...
In Europe, there are very restrictive gun laws. Not so in the US...can you imagine riots on the scale of those in Europe with semi-auto rifles in the
hands of the protestors? It would be absolute carnage...we know that. So first...let's see if we can fix this without shooting.
