Hi JibbyJedi, I fear you are right relevant to the way some folks will back down when the SHTF scenario unfolds and militarized LEO's start kicking
down doors. I know so many folks that are so enthralled with "Dancing With The Idols" or whatever or some unreal "reality" show, sports, soap
operas and talk shows that exploit people....and filling their snouts with junk food and swill while in front of the boob tube, they either don't
have a clue, don't care until it affects them personally and even then, will they stand up for their freedoms?
You are right, this all started a long time ago. There should have been folks raising heck over "roadside stops/checks", the seat belt laws/rules,
helmet laws, no smoking laws and such. The vaccination pressures brought to bear on parents...they say they aren't mandatory yet but folks who try to
opt out are often hassled for their choices. Little by little, our freedoms have been slowly tinkered with...like that "frog in a pot of water til
boiling scenario"... more and more and slowly the system has been working to take away our choices/freedoms.
Youngsters that join the armed forces literally sign away their rights, their bodies, to govt. They are "owned" from the day they take their
oath....yet, when they arrive home, they have to fight for medical help and now they are hassled relevant to owning firearms. What kinda crap is
Hubby and I are both in ill health because of PTSD and Gulf War Syndrome so we WILL stand up for our rights when/if the time comes. Even if we were
well, we would stand up and defend ourselves. Freedom is a lot to loose...in fact, it is everything! Freedom isn't just another word for nothing left
to loose. Thanx for listening.
