Something to Consider in Whether You Should Prep or Not

I have read things similar but Michael Snyder put together a pretty good post with all the reasons in one place.

So just how big is the U.S. national debt in 2010? Well, according to the U.S. Treasury Department, on June 1st the U.S. National Debt was $13,050,826,460,886.97. For those not used to seeing such big numbers, that is over 13 trillion dollars. To give you an idea of just how much a trillion dollars is, if you had started spending one million dollars every single day when Christ was born, you still would not have spent one trillion dollars by now. And yet somehow the U.S. government has accumulated a debt of over 13 trillion dollars. This is a debt that we have callously placed on the backs of future generations of Americans. Somehow we have the gall to expect our progeny to pay off the biggest mountain of debt in the history of the world. What we have done to future generations is beyond sickening.


It is really getting close to crunch time. Perhaps you feel that nothing has happened, therefore why prep? Folks please re-read the link I have added, and take in the fact that we- are reportedly the wealthiest nation on earth. If this is true, then we as a nation have the farthest to fall when things go bad. The farther you fall, the harder it will be~right? Prepping will not exempt one from those around you crashing hard. The time is now to learn the skills as well as prep, as we can share our skills.
