Where do we go? What do we do?
A friend if mine, @PoedPatriot really served the meat and potatoes:
First I would prepare for economic collapse for at least two reasons:
#1 No country can withstand the kind of reckless spendin
g that this country has been doing for the last five..History shows it has to come home to roost if it is not stopped.
#2 There are those (many) in Government who wish to see the Capitalist Market (I would say free market but it hasn’t been that in a long time) collapse here in the United States. They are doing everything they can to over load the system and force it to collapse…and now for the next four years there isn’t much that will prevent them from doing just that. (Excessive taxation, high unemployment and reckless government spending is going to collapse the system nicely.. since it all feeds into each other like a snow ball rolling down a hill.)
Second, I would prepare to defend certain important areas of the country. Now yes I do mean stock up on firearms and ammo and no I’m not a nut job. Here is why..
The Communists (Aka uber Progressives) have a long history of violently taking over nations in times of crisis. When a nation collapses (financially or otherwise) chaos reigns as people realize their ‘normal’ lives are no more and the leadership that was in place becomes (usually) useless. The Communists actually have plans in place to step into that void left by the previous leadership (Or at least be teamed up with the uber progressives that do). Now they aren’t going to call themselves “Communists” Hell it will prob be lead by a well known politician and or they’ll do it ‘peacefully’ by having the President issue “orders” so that they will get control of the country (As in “Oh Capitalism failed so now we have to do this etc etc…”). Either way history has proven this is how drastic and radical change is forced on a country by Communists…(Granted the past 100 years they have done a good job in pushing the country their way gradually but historically that is new for them.) And after reading and watching the Communists for the past 5 years..I know for a fact that they are hoping and praying for such a collapse. (By the way this is not a push for civil war or some kind of threat.. it’s just observations based upon historic facts and it needs to be said. No law against preparing to defend yourself.. this is not a call to arms.. So DHS bugger off..)
Third thing I would do is get involved as a citizen journalist or something in that realm. As it stands right now the Internet is our last “Free” place on the planet for ideas. Besides we can do the most good by not only researching and informing ourselves but sharing what we have learned with others. The internet is our Front Lines and right now we are in dire need of reinforcements. Btw..Don’t expect to make money doing this because it’s not going to happen. You do this because it needs to be done..
Fourth.. don’t give up on the Future and make sure you educate your children.. what I have written above may not happen in our lifetime (I know I’m dreaming) but it is imperative that we train our replacements. Looking to the future is where we have failed and the Communists have not. We think it’s our job to fight so our kids can live “normal” lives.. that is a crock.. normal is about defending your Liberty and training those future generations to defend theirs. It is NOT about watching TV, going to Disney World or buying the latest new “gadget” … without Liberty none of that is going to mean squat since you will be too busy doing the Governments bidding. Besides if you do not teach your children your values.. someone will teach them theirs….and the Communists are more than happy to teach them theirs.
Anyway.. that is my short answer.. “shocking” as it maybe.. honestly I’m tired of people not saying what needs to be said. Am I violent.. No.. do I wish harm on others.. No.. but only a fool fails to prepare for what history teaches us will probably happen.
And if it doesn’t happen then we will all laugh about it later.. and you can call me quack for the rest of my life.. a name I will gladly wear with pride.
In otherwords, prepare yourselves. There is nothing silly about stocking up on non-perishables. Canning and jarring is simple and smart. (tutorial to come)
It is easy to stock up on a three week supply of food, water, and toiletries…including a makeshift toilet. Think about this…what if a quake hit, a perfect storm, unrest, whatever. Food on your shelves rotates out, so you never lose the investment. Even better, if you are like me, I hibernate-ish in the cold of winter. That food supply allows me to shop if and when I choose. It really is nice to have your own private grocery store. It doesn’t matter if it is a cultural, social, economic collapse. What matters is you be prepared for anything. Remember Hopkin? What about Superstorm Sandy?
Another point, keep books…not only to pass time, but more importantly, to educate your children. Curriculum are cheap…and you avoid indoctrination.
One final diamond in the rough…stock up on booze and tobacco, as well as small toiletries…great battering items.
Lastly, most importantly, trust in the Lord. He is our refuge, He is our strength. All things are Him (even if it is to press into him in the wake of a tragedy). THAT is the key to survival. Trust in God and speak to Him daily. Open your ears. Gird your loins!
And never, never forget who we are, what we are doing and why we must.
Godspeed and Shalom.
