It is a time of great strife in America, which is having long-reaching effects across the world. America elected a new president. There was no right choice or wrong choice. The outcome is what it is and people are angry. Riots and protests have already started. Threats of dire consequences and circumstances are being predicted and it is hard not to feel a little anxious about the future. This isn’t about a political party, race or anything else. This is what preppers have been preparing for. This change of hands in the White House that could be good or it could be bad. One thing is for sure, it has divided the country and the world as a whole.
It doesn’t matter who you voted for or who you did or didn’t want. It is about preparing for the fallout. Our lives are going to change. We can all hope it will be for the better, but is that a realistic outcome? It is truly hard to say. The media in general thrives on the drama. The more that is stirred up, the more they have to report on. The more they report, the antsier and angrier people get, which is where preppers come in.
You all need to be ready for the changing tide. Now, more than ever, you need to get your stuff together. Get your food stockpiled. Get some water stored. And yes, store some guns and the ammunition to make them effective. It may not be the newly elected president that poses the threat. It could be your neighbors or another country. The changing of the guard so to speak is always a vulnerable time.
Start stockpiling these things now;
- Non-perishable food items i.e. canned meat, dried beans, grains, freeze-dried foods
- First aid supplies
- Guns and ammo
- Basic construction supplies i.e. hammer, nails, saws
- Pandemic supplies i.e. face masks, gloves, Tyvek suits, plastic
- Personal hygiene items
- Entertainment items i.e. books, board games, cards, pen and paper, crayons for the kids
- Communication devices i.e. 2-way radios, HAM or CB radio, satellite phone
- Backup power source—solar is great option
- Prescription medicines
You know what your family needs. Stock up on what you need to stay alive should you have to stay in your home for weeks at a time to ride out civil unrest or a terrorist attack. Don’t get caught off guard.
