“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but, when you want to test a man’s character, give him power”
This where modern Democrats fail so miserably, so consistently, so completely, and oh-so predictably!
And that is why we can’t, and (as yesterday shows) don’t, trust them.
I’m not sure I trust most Republicans either, but now at least they have their chance to persuade us that they are worthy of it.
What we can expect is a very angry BHO:
> Amnestizing all illegal aliens, and flat-out encouraging more to join them.
>Continue to openly promote voter fraud
>Turn loose from custody more violent criminals, as many as he can
>Continue to otherwise punish his perceived “enemies” with restrictive legislation, executive orders, and specific targeting from politicized federal agencies, like the IRS. Doctors, gun-owners, business-owners, private-sector employers, Christian and Jewish entities beware!
The effect of this will be a sharp increase in violent crime (particularly in anti-gun states like NY, CT, et al) and more predictable calls from cynical leftists to disarm (punish) everyone who doesn’t commit crimes. However, with Republicans in control of both Houses, federal anti-gun legislation is unlikely over the next two years. Unlikely in most states too.
Operators, both LEOs and non-LEOs, must continue to train relentlessly, must continue to go armed, must continue to practice all-around alertness.
The next two years will be exciting, even absent major events in the rest of the world. None of us have much of a chance of influencing world history in any grand way, but we can keep our heads up, be good people, manage our personal affairs with dignity, righteousness, and honor, and continually strive to be competent Operators.
“Safety” is a word we’ve invented to describe a non-existent phenomenon. Our lives need to be a daring adventure, as they all end the same way!
