Now that I have a child of my own, I feel it's my duty as the provider/husband/father to do everything in my power to protect my family.
Absolutely! If you ever make your way down here, you and your better half always have a place to stay! I'm always up for a beer or two but we better not punch the hippies, they bruise easy.The next time I get to NM you and I have to spend an evening drinking beer and punching hippies!
This pretty much sums it up for me as well.I guess my goals aren't near as noble. I figure I was put onto this earth, and I'll struggle to stay here and on this side of the daisies as long as I possible can. If that just dealing with modern life, or if the SHTF, I'll plug along till the good Lord takes me. If someone decides to hurry my exit, I plan on making it very costly on whomever.
I hope that is what happens. But the way society is today, you just don't know how will have power.What do you expect after the crisis is over? Do you think that the country will just naturally turn back to the type of government that you enjoy or is it not an interest that you have?
My feeling is that after the crisis we will have to rebuild the republic to get rid of the abuses of government and return to a free society.
