How to prepare your family to survive and thrive in todays uncertain world

A Voice Crying In The Wilderness

It should be readily apparant at this point that nobody who is currently in power in this country takes the economic train wreck that’s on it’s way seriously.

Nobody who WANTS to be in power takes it seriously either.

Obama, Romney, Santorum … Democrat, Republican. None of them have the intellectual honesty or flat out integrity to admit reality.

Being elected and maintaining power is more important. And they’ll throw each and every one of us under the bus to get it and keep it.

If you went to middle school, you understand how an exponential equation works, and what an exponential curve looks like. And we’ve all heard the fable of the chess board and grains of rice.

We know that exponential systems MUST collapse, based on natures laws. We understand implicitly that things can’t continue the way they are. But who else does?

How does it feel to be the lone voice crying in the wilderness?

As I grow more and more pessimistic about what’s going on here, and how circumstances will be manipulated to entrench the power mongers that already direct things, I feel led to reach out to more and more people.

But I can’t talk to everyone.

Luckily, dear reader, you can talk to people. I don’t care if you tell them about me, or other people who write about prepping. It doesn’t matter.

What matters is that you begin educating others about what could happen. They need to know, in a truthful and paranoia free way, that life can change for all of us, and they too can be prepared, just like their grandparents were.

Over the next few months I’ll be writing about things from a beginners standpoint. We’re all good in some areas, and less good in other areas. Hopefully we can all learn from each other. ┬áTake what you learn, and pass it on.

Many of you have written to me saying thank you for what I do, and have offered any assistance possible.

I’m going to call in that favor today. I’m going to challenge you to go out of your comfort zone.

Next week, and every week for the next two months, reach out to three people that are in your life, and share the vision of true paranoia free preparedness.

Educate them in a non preachy way. Teach them that the media vision of us, paranoid survivalists that live in a bunker, is wrong.

Share the mindset of self sufficiency and hope, and explain how even a few simple steps toward getting prepared for an emergency will help smooth over the random bumps we encounter in life’s road.

And let me know how it goes.

Never forget, the only way to rebuild this country into what it could be is not through the ballot box. It’s over a cup of coffee with someone in your life.

Have a great weekend, folks.

  1. I would take issue with one small thing. Ron Paul is taking it seriously. He is the only one currently in the field. I finally began reading what this man has to say for myself instead of listening to the filtered news and conservative pundits. I am convinced he is our best hope. Unfortunately, there is such a concerted effort to block him (by Republicans) that his true, in context statements are not getting out very well.

  2. I would like to know what the statistics are for how many people actually are preppers. We all know every Mormon is but from aside of Utah how many of us are out there? I’ve approached people Rudy and I agree with you that it’s a given duty of preppers to reach out. I have four old brothers and sisters and they laugh at preppers.

    I stockpile a little away in a corner for them…..

  3. You are right on Rudy! Sounds like me. As each day and week go by I grow more concerned, much less positive, and more determined that a crash will occur. It may be 6 months it may be 10 years – it is just a matter of time.

  4. Thanks Rudy for your encouragement. We all need it. I was just reading on a topic called the “Normalcy bias” which explains, or trys to, why people will just not move or act, even in light of an emergency. I have been and will continue to help people along the way. I still need your type of encouragement though. And Carol, while i do like Ron Paul and his policies, i also like some other candidates from other parties as well. BUt in reality, our system will not allow them to win. I”ve just had to face that fact.

  5. There IS hope in the election of Ron Paul. I pretty much agree with Gymno, our current system would never allow a Ron Paul to win – unless they wanted to use him as a fall guy. The thing is, even with rescinding destructive executive orders and issuing JUST ones, how and by whom would they be enforced? Our government is run by people who have been employees of the system for decades. They ignore some legislation while blowing others into huge, costly programs.
    The people who haven’t prepared (mentally as much as materially) and are accustomed to living off the government largess (employed, contracted or entitled) are going to be just as ‘active’ regardless of who is in office when the monthly checks don’t get delivered. I find it amazing how many people don’t even have a clue as to what is going on in Greece. It’s a lot harder to convince people there’s something to prepare FOR.
    You are so right, Rudy, it’s a job that’s best done one friend at a time over a cup of coffee – or a beer.

    P.S. Dinah – ALL Mormons are not prepared materially, by a long shot. But they have a very strong church community that is prepared to assist their own. It’s a shame all denominations don’t teach and practice the same family / community relations behavior. You are doing the Christian thing by considering your brothers in your endeavors.
