Can an atheist not also have a point of view? If one does not believe in God/higher power, then they can have no opinion? And are you suggesting that I take up drinking also, in addition to a double dose of prozac?
A rosy outlook is fine, even with a head tucked between the legs, buried in the sand. No wait, in the bunker. We are already, well into the demise of our own empire as we know it. Look around, it's happening from within. Are you one who belives that God and/or government will see you through. There is nothing that can be done, so do not do anything. I have people close to me who believe this way and it pisses me off. Like smitty said, if it actually comes to drastic times, I and most others would not accept someone with no skills, abilities and supplies into a self sustaining group.
"I would gladly do my part to assist my fellow citizens from my quarters below Wright Patterson or below Denver airport, depending on what part of the country I was in."
Are you one of the privledged?
"Do not worry. America's secret weapon to aid her citizens is helicopters. You don't see many being used in the movie but as always throughout literature and history,"
That's the problem. America is not self sufficent anymore. To many are looking for their handout from the government. Expecting someone to take care of them if a something bad happens. Have you noticed we are not helping our own very much? You pretty much have to live in another country to "get the good stuff" Or be a baby mak'in welfare recipient.
Wait, I sorry, Meds just kicked in. I'll help everyone
As my fellow Rainbows say "Welcome home brother" I will take your idle posterior in with me and fill up your bus too.
