If that is your real name. Excellent point about fear. I would also say that the current administration is successful due to the large amount of fear they portray us living in. I am sure they view it as a "realistic" view, however, won't this become the President that called wolf?
First of all, what is the government doing putting their nose into this family business. A late night session? Seriously... WTF?
Some fear can be good, and keep us alert. However, living in fear is a completely different argument.
