“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” Thomas Jefferson

Preparing for the Coming Depression
I really hate to sound so negative, but if you haven't realized by now our economy is collapsing and heading toward a full scale depression. What will be worse about this depression is that there are so few that are self sufficient. In the 1930s, the majority of the population was in agriculture. Now agriculture has been deemed a thing of the past and most of the population lives in urban settings covered with concrete and steel. So while in the 1930s farmers could at least feed there families and most farmers in a community shared what they had with those in town that didn't have as much, nowadays nobody has anything to share. Most people today don't know how to fend for themselves and rely on their own self sufficiency. They rely on the grocery trucks, the power company, the gas company, etc. to be there and provide the modern day conveniences they have come to rely on and need. What happens if the power goes out, gas supply interrupted, and grocery stores stand empty? For those who haven't started, start learning now. Visit some of the other blogs in my blog list, check out the articles, and read the posts. Your families survival depends on your learning what you need to know. Oh, I am sure if times get really bad the government will help a little, the bread lines will be very long though. And then are you willing to sell your soul to the devil for a slice of bread and a bowl of watered down broth. I am not. Be prepared, learn now, and survive.
