I’m sorry, and please take no offense when I say this, but your response is shortsighted, for significant events elsewhere in America (and around the world) can and sometimes do directly affect (or good or ill) every community in America. Whether it’s in the form of terrorist attacks, racial violence, natural disasters, wars outside our borders, boycotts…you name it. Yes, such can affect your community in economic, social, and even physical ways. Concerning the present discussion, if there is significant violence by Trump supporters if he is unwillingly pulled from office, such can have a deleterious effect on the economy of the nation as a whole, and even if yours is a small community way out in the boonies (like where I spent nearly the first third of my life), it can have a real and painful effect.

It’s nice to think that your particular community is immune…but no community in America is immune to such effects. A particular community may be much more resilient than other communities…but no community is immune.

As the man said, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
