So people are to busy enjoying good lives without anybody bothering them and you want them to revolt against what again? Just what terrible thing has
the Gov done that would justify a civil war that would slaugter millions and leave the nation starving and in chaos ruled by petty dictators who
coninued to battle out who would be in control. That is what you wish for?
Good God almighty dude, I was replying to a comment that was made in the article. No need to get bent out of shape and take my words to heart.
No, I don't wish for anything to happen.
BUT...at the same time....
I don't think our citizens have what it takes to stand up against the government in a SHTF type scenario.
[except the ones demanding their free handouts...]
Many yes, will act in their own best interest but not all.
Many live in a glass bubble and wouldn't even begin to know how to defend themselves if need be.
To be like Egypt, Greece, Syria, etc with all the turmoil and chaos, hell no, of course I don't want that.
But who is to say that it can't happen here in the US............you?????
Just because you don't like what some one has to say does not make you right and superior.
But reality is, things are looking bleak for the US and until this administration along with the senate/congress get their azz in gear and do some
thing substantial to maintain stability and confidence in our country, it's not going to get better any time soon.
And the foreign countries know this and are watching our downfall.
So it doesn't hurt to talk about the possibilities.
And it does not mean it will happen nor do we want it to happen.
What's the harm in being alert and aware of the goings on around us?.......there is no harm.
And if you can't or don't understand that, I'm sorry.
