Yes. Most Americans believe that the threats to freedom and liberty are made by meatpuppets on domestic turf only, and that their guns will save them. However, the attacks don’t need to be on domestic turf now, and the firing range of their AR-15s and semi-automatic rifles is far from adequate to meet the tyranny the US citizens now face. The weaponized anger and despair from the citizens IS a threat to personal freedom and liberty to the other citizens.
I would guess that you are not an American citizen nor resident given the thread title. So I won’t ask these questions of you directly. I have asked questions about the voting stimuli for white Americans on another thread, an American woman of colour responded. You understand my words; the sole respondent understood my words; therefore, I am writing at a broadly accessible reading level of English, not in any racist dogwhistle secret code.
How would a US citizen explain to an immigrant how it was evident to most people outside the US that one candidate was clearly unfit for the role, had no public service, yet close to 102 million adult US citizens with televisions, radios, smartphones, computers did not think they needed to cast votes to keep him out of the White House?
How would an American explain to a Canadian, whose country has a population just smaller by two million than California State’s and has about 338 federal electoral districts, that California gets two senators, the same as Wyoming’s, and 55 electoral votes, just 6x that of Alabama, yet California has 8x Alabama’s population?
How do Americans explain to a feminist that a physically unfit, demented, misogynist, racist old man with no public service is preferred by the electoral voters to a woman who’s sane, competent, in Senate and Secretary of State roles, and that most white women went for the idiot rather than one of their own?
Why is it not all American women are outraged by how many strings are pulled to make sure an alcoholic misogynist with rage issues sits on the Supreme Court?
How do Americans imagine that under a Clinton Administration ICE would be working to deport legal residents, residents who served in the US military, and unescorted asylum seekers under the age of 5?
How do Americans even entertain voting Republican in 2018? How can the approval rate for someone so odious, and obviously manipulated by foreign state leaders be so high?
How would an American explain to a woman who drove 370 km round-trip to participate in her 2015 federal election that Americans like to talk about (or be told about) Democracy but, when put to the test, usually find voting an ‘inconvenience’ in the "land of the free, home of the brave?
How do Americans not see how compromised many of their legislative representatives are? (Yes, I do believe some Dems are compromised, but the ratio of D:R is about 6:94 in my estimation.)
Does anyone know absolutely the electoral voters were not coerced or bribed in the November 2016 election?
I asked two American female citizens, one Eurasian so effectively a person of colour, and they have not responded. I HAVE seen on other political threads answers to SOME of these paraphrased questions: lack of critical thinking, gerrymandering, distraction, reliance on solely American corporate news media and entertainment channels MASQUERADING as news channels but licensed only for entertainment, fear of being outnumbered.
