With out a doubt, this is a make or break year for us. For humankind for that matter. This Grand Experiment we call The United States of America is at stake. Isolate this thought in your mind. Never in the History of man's existence on this planet has a Country like this existed.
Never has the opportunity to rise from nothing to opulence like this existed in all the history of Man.
On a smaller scale, never has the opportunity existed to rise from poverty to a comfortable living in which you don't have to dodge bullets or dig in the mud with a stick for survival existed.
I've read numerous posts by my fellow bloggers about how they would vote for Obama simply because they don't like any of the Republican contenders. Simply to bring it to a swifter end. Or, how they are just going to sit this one out entirely and not vote.
Go ahead, give up.
Don't bother to vote in all the local and state elections, nor for the dismal choices we have for President. Sit home and collect ammo and prep for the Zombie Apocalypse. Build your bunker.
How long can you hold out?
You will slip on the muddy bank of the livestock tank eventually and impale yourself on a stick. Infection will set in, and you will die.
You will get a cavity which leads to an abscessed tooth, and you will die. A feral dog will bite you and you will die. (you get the point by now I'm sure)
No matter how fortified your environs are, no matter how much ammo you've stockpiled, no matter how much food you have stockpiled, your life, and more importantly, your children's lives will be shit.
Fight the political battle. Tap into your fight or flight response and fight the political battle.
Otherwise, your children will be digging in the mud with sticks.
