Tis question is not exactly but largely analogous to the question : 'Do we self insure or purchase insurance'? The risk evaluation is complex and the answer is dependant on the a number of weighty factors not least of which is the amount of liquid assets available to address a catastrophic failure. Hire a risk analyst.

Whoop-tee shit! It's a stupid and desperate strategy precisely because most people will react as you did but nobody is trying to threaten or intimidate you, though they may be trying to shame or coerce you into engaging with your friends and neighbours in order to encourage them to engage in the political system. I think they are frustrated and grasping at straws because political discourse in the US has deteriorated to such an extent that the process has become mostly dysfunctional.
