|New Civil War|
Is it time for another civil war?
How much freedom are you willing to give up to be protected by the big bad boogie man, err terrorists?
This will come to an end when America wakes up. I see this happening today. It's a slow process. It will take more time to reach critical mass. How much time I don't know. There are a lot of fence sitters who are just waiting for the right things to happen. I implore you to be one of those people. Be ready when the shit really starts to fly. It may not be long now.
Being prepared does not mean you have to radically change your current lifestyle. It only requires doing a few little things that you should already be doing anyway. Here is a short list of things you can do to be prepared.
1. Read up on basic survival skills.
2. Study basic medicine.
3. Own a firearm and know how to use it.
4. Keep a large stock of food on hand. The kind that doesn't spoil.
5. Prepare and keep a bugout bag.
6. Don't live in heavily populated areas.
Doing these simple things will greatly increase your chance of survival.
Our current food distribution system is very fragile. It wouldn't take much for it to stop working. Grocery stores will be empty in less than a day. Without a constant influx of food large cities will destroy themselves very quickly. You do not want to be a part of this.
Our power systems may only hold up a little better. Be prepared to deal with a total lack of power for an extended period of time. Gas heat? You still need power to operate the furnace blower and thermostat. Be prepared to use other fuel sources for heating and cooking. Also have another source of clean water as you taps may not work. Those pumps tend to be electric.
Fuel? Don't expect to drive your car much. There will be a rush on that too. Don't try to horde it. As you may well know, refined fuels like gasoline have a rather limited shelf life.
In the end it's going to be a real mess. The longer the wait for something to happen the worse it's going to be.
