Being truthful is, my opinion, a trait I strive for every day. Loyalty (trust) will not happen unless you are telling the truth. lying, in a group or marriage will corrupt anything it touches. Being practical I know that not everyone will tell everything. I always hold back on fully trusting someone until I have known that person for some time. In our group there are several new people but they have been supported for membership by people I would trust with my life.
So far our group has had to kick out two members. One could not keep his mouth shut and the other was a “Drama Queen” that only wanted to be like the “Preppers” on TV.
