Risking Everything For Power

The assasination of Popular American President John F. Kennedy in Dallas summer of 1963 revealed the vulnerablilty of modern political leaders.
Less than 20 years later John Warnock Hinckley Jr. attempted to assassinate U.S. President Ronald Reagan in Washington, D.C., on March 30, 1981, as the culmination of an effort to impress actress Jodie Foster.
Considering the massive rallies modern candidates like Donald Trump hold and the growing violence of Social Justice Warriors, will history repeat itself soon? Turns out the wait was short as a young misguided anti-Trump protester tried to take a gun from a police officer on Jun 19th, 2016 at a Trump rally in Las Vegas. Luckily, he failed and was arrested without further incident.
With the choice of Mike Pence for VP, Trump was clearly speaking to that fear. It was a sober and thoughtful choice, one that many found unusually well made. As with any gambit we'll all just have to wait and see if it pays off. He seems to like playing close to the edge; part of the fun and danger.
