Another divisive election is coming to a close today in America. Well maybe. Let’s hope so anyways. No matter how you voted, I think we can all agree that a long, drawn out political mess with thousands of lawyers arguing over votes is not in our country’s best interest.
Whatever the outcome, it’s clear to those who are paying attention that America faces some tough times ahead, regardless of who wins. To that end, you can expect more preparedness posts and reviews in the coming months, but it’s important to pay attention to what happens with the election.
Post-Election Protests and Riots
In certain parts of America, depending on the outcome of the Presidential election, tonight and tomorrow could get ugly. I certainly hope that it doesn’t, but the potential is there. If you live in an urban environment, I encourage a little extra vigilance. Hopefully all goes well and Americans remember that we are Americans first and foremost, but it’s best to be prepared.
Most bad situations can simply be avoided with a little situational awareness. Pay attention to what’s going on both nationally and in your area. If one side feels like it was cheated in the election by the other side, things could get dangerous. We have already had reports of people calling for riots if their candidate loses. This could, of course, be nonsense posturing, but let’s face it – people these days don’t need much of an excuse to riot.
Keep your eyes open and your head down.
