    Meanwhile, a third significant conservative voting bloc are the gun rights activists. Many of them are explicitly seeking to be better prepared for a breakdown in the social order, whether temporary or systemic. These are the people who firmly believe that if only they had been in that fateful theater in Aurora, Colorado, that they would have ended the killing spree singlehandedly because they are badasses. They believe that their arsenal will preserve them and their property against invasion from without or insurrection from within, as well as riots engendered by the aforementioned parasites.
    As the now discredited Bob Greene wrote in an early column, in the choice between being a survivalist or a looter, the latter might be the more viable role in an apocalypse.
