When people discuss Sarah Palin why do some on the left describe her as scary?
Recently while discussing politics with someone I had known for years made the statement that Sarah Palin scared him. I was dumbfounded,I suddenly realized what he was saying. I asked him why she scared him so. I might add he is part of the younger generation.
He didn’t have an answer.
Sarah Palin is part of the tea party, the tea party only wants the country to follow the constitution, protect our borders, stop terrorism and believe in God. What is so scary about that?
She believes in the second amendment and hunts. Is that what scares people,hunting and carrying a gun?
Has the younger generation been so overprotected they are insecure about their ability to protect themselves and been taught to believe the government is the only one who has the ability and right to protect them?
Many in my generation grew up with guns. Ours were stacked in the corner of the kitchen and the ammunition was in the kitchen drawer. No one touched either,we knew better.
Many kids today have never seen a gun up close and personal much less fired one.
Today kids are supposedly protected from every hazard imaginable. In many cases they aren’t even allowed to climb a tree or bounce on a trampoline. Has this made them so paranoid that when someone like Palin starts talking about self responsibility and defending oneself does it make them uncomfortable because it seems unnatural to not have someone else protecting them and looking out after their welfare?
They have been conditioned to believe someone else, in particular the government has their best interests at heart, nothing could be farther from the truth. There isn’t anyone who will look after your interests like you will.
Bureaucrats have no ones interests in mind but their own. Sitting at a desk in Washington they have no idea what goes on in the hinterlands or how anyone feels and could care less.
When did we come to a point in time when the common sense of yesteryear would strike fear into the hearts of men of today?

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world,not only today, but looking back in history, this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said,”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.”
As obvious as it may seem, many seem to totally oblivious to it. Most if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to over complicate the issues, when a easy and simple solution should be obvious.
I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.
Their teachings have become convoluted and are no longer sensible. Because so many have lost sight of the basic universal truths ,they think these truths no longer apply. Mention age old values and many people would have no idea what you were talking about.
