Does fear make Americans stupid?

Win your personal war on terror. Tell Congress you’re NOT afraid. Retweet.

Media Alert: Friday (tomorrow) November 20, Tuesday November 24, and Wednesday November 25, Jim Babka guest-hosts the Gary Nolan Show. It airs from 9 AM to Noon Central time, in Columbia and Jefferson City, MO. But you can listen at — click on “Listen Live,” on the top right side of the page.

Action Item

Terrorists strike, people feel fear, and the terrorists win. This is foolish. Please consider…

More Americans are killed by their cars or bathtubs, but you don’t fear those things. You shouldn’t fear terrorism either. Please realize…

Fear has been bad for America.

Every time the public feels afraid the politicians do something stupid. For example…

  • We felt fear about 9-11 so we imposed the Patriot Act and the TSA on ourselves.
  • We felt fear about supposed weapons of mass destruction, and so we invaded Iraq. That invasion was the petri dish for ISIS.

Now we’re afraid of ISIS. So that means we must be on the verge of doing something else idiotic.

Please refuse to participate in the stupidity. Instead, actively oppose it.

It’s easy. The logic is simple. When you feel fear the terrorists win. That’s what they want. If you don’t believe it, see this short, emotional, and informative presentation by Waleed Aly. This logic implies something stunning…

You can win your personal war on terror instantly, simply by refusing to be afraid.

That’s step one. Step two — tell Congress to NOT feel fear on your behalf. We have a campaign for that purpose, our “I am not Afraid” campaign. The hardwired message for that campaign reads…

I am not afraid of terrorism. Please do NOT be afraid on my behalf.

You can copy or edit the following sample letter for your personal comments…

Take no actions that violate the Constitution. Send no troops or bombs to foreign lands. Such actions have created more enemies than they killed. Give no more weapons to foreign groups, lest they continue to fall into the wrong hands. Protect refugees. Make America a sanctuary for the oppressed. In short, take no extraordinary actions to combat terrorism. Do nothing beyond normal police work practiced in obedience to the Bill of Rights.
