You know, when you are afraid your empathy for others goes down. You just care about

you and your your family. I know. I was stalked for years. Maybe all this GOP/NRA push is not just to sell guns but to sell fear, reducing empathy across the nation. So they can get people to vote against helping their neighbours or the poor.

3. Oh yeah. And lack of health care too. All of it to make people less

rich in their hearts and minds. More afraid. With a much lesser capacity to care about the welfare of others outside of their immediate loved ones.
