It’s been said that a lot of preppers have stopped prepping all together as they believe many of the threats they feared have been reduced or eliminated. Yes, the economy is booming, unemployment is at the lowest level in 50 years, the US is now the largest producer of oil in the world, wages are rising, over 3 million new jobs created in 2 years, and North Korea is actively negotiating with the US on eliminating it’s nuclear program. But, and that’s a really BIG but, all is not well in the world.
France is burning as thousands have taken to the streets to protest new environmental taxes on fuel. Europe as a whole has been willingly over run with so-called ‘refugees’ and as a result their crime rates are soaring out of control. Germany has proposed a new European Army to stand against the US. The Russian Navy has captured 3 Ukrainian Navy ships following a firefight in what threatens to spark even further conflict in the already hotly contested territory. The US military just released a disturbing report on the devastating effects that would follow an EMP attack on the US. Thousands of ‘refugees’ are massed at our southern border demanding entrance and of course all the welfare programs that draw them here. Alaska was just pummeled by a nasty 7.0 earthquake that damaged important infrastructure. California wildfires, again, devastated thousands of acres, destroyed thousands of homes and killed at least 88. Record cold and snow slammed the East Coast and Midwest in what’s being called the harshest start to winter in the US in history. The political left in the US, along with a subservient media, are still attempting to overturn the 2016 election. The 2018 midterm elections were fraught with fraud, crooked lawyers, compromised election officials, and then of course, the biased media. Yes, and the list goes on and on; do you really believe all is well?
If you aren’t prepping now, then when? The world is still a very dangerous place with disasters, both natural and man-made, possible at any given moment. Will you put your family at risk by relying on the government to take care of you, or will you make the conscious decision to become better prepared. Failure to plan, is a plan to fail. I hope you will start you own journey (or get back to it) and prepare for what is clearly an uncertain future.
Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
