He’s an old man by now. Wiki lists him as being 66 years old. There’s a progression that all old folks go though. Relative good health and mobility – then an accident. The recovery defeats them. First a cane, then a walker, then a scooter, then a wheelchair. After the wheelchair, they never stand on their own again. They die in bed, unable to bathe themselves, unable to control their bladders. Invalids, objects of pity.
As a green beret, Randy pulled triggers and did the system’s dirty work. After he finished serving them, they killed his wife and …one of his children. He was right to retreat to Northern Idaho – a hostile Zionist occupied government did come to oppress him.
It would be tragic for Randy to die in a bed, waiting for death to come, with his business unfinished. His fight with the USG in 1992 was the pinnacle of his life. He can beat that peak by ending well.
The system won their encounter with Randy – not because he gave up, but because his surviving daughters lived ordinary lives. They went from survivalist to ordinary American.
You’ve got to take your shot when you’ve got it. Wait too long, and it disappears. I don’t know if Randy has the spirit anymore to take what’s his.
