Could it be ...
Fewer Americans fear terror attacks cause more Americans are armed to the teeth?
Thanks to the actions of police SWAT teams and to the actions certain police officers themselves,, Americans are being conditioned to terror attacks.
where’s the poll asking if people fear this government?
Indeed sir. That is correct.
Everything this administration does is a terrorist attack.
And no doubt, even fewer fear Judgment Day. That doesn’t mean it won’t happen.
With Obama in the White House and Holder running the Justice Dept. for almost five years we found out we can withstand just about anything the jihadi and racist terrorists can throw at us.
Where the people fear the government you have tyranny.
I didn’t think much of George W. Bush, especially after he let the far left stampede him on the “financial crisis”, but at least I was far more afraid of terrorists than of Bush. With Obama in office, those terrorists who do not hold power over our lives and our future are not a major concern.
Bush joined with the far left when it came to the financial crisis; that was a willing move.
Because the next Islamic terrorist who tries anything on a plane is going to be beaten to death by his fellow passengers before he can spit out the last syllable of “Akhbar”.
Does anyone honestly believe 30% of Americans (and their families) are in danger of a terrorist attack? This is not to say it is a major concern, just statistically, if anything the number is too high. It is not to belittle terror or anything, but we’re not talking the USSR or China here - those are vastly greater threats, yet we hear little concern from our pols.
