Stop buying duct tape and water bottles. You have more chance of dying in a car accident than dying in a terrorist act. Terrorism is a serious problem, yes, but it does not warrant the current hysteria. Some people who have little to no serious threat to fear are seriously scared for their lives due to the scaremongering of the admin and the media and will vote solely based on that fear (a fear which interferes with their rational processes for deciding who and what actions will do the best job to prevent terrorism). It's been going on for a long time, and will continue as such. People in many countries get it much worse than we do.
