Stocking up on food and supplies before the worst part of the forced shutdowns could turn out to have been good practice for what may be coming after the presidential election. Especially considering the new vacancy on the Supreme Court.
A “police officer” is a person who commits the act of policing; of enforcing legislation for political bullies in exchange for stolen money. “Police” is not the person, it is the set of behaviors the person commits. This is why it isn’t “collectivist” to admit there are no good cops.
Am I bothered that Donald Trump only “paid” $750 in taxes in some specific years? That’s like asking if I’m bothered that some billionaire only donated $750 to ISIS, Antifa, or to the KKK.
It’s about cops being out of control. It’s about the evil and destructive policy of “qualified immunity”. It’s about the evil practice of no-knock raids, and the expectation that people sit quietly and allow violent intruders to invade their homes without opposition. It’s about the demand that you sit and die peacefully instead of shooting back at bad guys who are kicking in your door with guns drawn. And it’s about prohibition.
The people who refuse to control themselves and the people who refuse to defend themselves from those individuals who refuse to control themselves are a real problem.

I don’t need a president, so I don’t support presidential candidates. However, from observation, I have a suspicion about the future based on how I expect the followers of those candidates to behave in case of a loss. Or a “win”.
