It’s one thing to plan for the worst, it’s quite another to be an unthinking pessimist ready to roll over in submission.
One of the tenants of conservatism is understanding human nature and history. I qualified this with the word mostly and hope for the exemptions.
BUT, I have experienced standing up for what is right and I STOOD ALONE, and I thought I was surrounded by men of like mind.

But you seem to forget American history. Do you recall how our nation was formed?
I've stood alone myself. I'm prepared to do the same thing again if it comes to it. That is all I can do after all.
