Islamists detonate bombs in downtown New York!
500,000 refugees flee the city as refugee camps are overflow and government resources fail!
These are terms that Americans have never heard in context. Oh, sure, we've had refugees before - New Jersey recently and New Orleans not that long ago, but those were minor disasters. Imagine if you would, what would happen if Saudi Arabia decided that we were no longer fit to sell oil to. Imagine what it would be like if you picked up the telephone to call 911, and there was no dialtone. Imagine the waffles not making it to your local Publix. You've lived a life where the meat shelf was always full, where the waffles and bread was always on the shelves, and where batteries were always available. How could it be otherwise?
Egypt is not a backwards country, nor was Syria. True, they have high populations of Muhammadans and that does play a heavy role in everything, but they have grocery stores like us, and paid their electric bills, water bills, and mortgages, just like we do, until they woke one morning and the services were not there. Neighbors they had known all their lives decided to fill their pantries from their neighbors houses, and rape became that little thing that happenes on the way to the store and back - overnight.
What is why we prep. You can be a survivor or you can be a refugee or a victim. No country is 100% secure, and ours gets worse every day. Could Syria happen tomorrow? Could you see your family and friends lying in a muddy storm drainage channel, left to rot? Most would say, "Never!" But that was how it was in Syria a few short months ago. That was how it was in Egypt, Russia before the fall, and every other country that has seen their government fall.
So we prep. The Liberals don't, they have the idea that the electricity will always be on, and that the water will always come out of the tap when you turn it on. They say, "this could never happen in the USA," but even as they claim it can never happen, their own policies hasten it's arrival. They forget 911 and chalk it up as an isolated event, and I'll bet that the people in Egypt said the same. I'll bet the Hews said the same. I'll bet nearly every group that has ever suffered a pogrom has said the same. Liberals go further, though. They are the ones that will not fight, and when the fighting starts, they are the first to try to surrender.
"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
- Samuel Adams knew Liberals even in his day.
