Are Politics and Preparedness Related?
Yes. Yes they are. Several months ago I stated I would not write about politics again. I have not held up to that and in fact, I plan on doing a lot more. Some of you have expressed that this is a preparedness website and politics should play no part in it. At the risk of loosing some readers – it’s my site and I believe politics SHOULD play a vital role here at ModernSurvivalOnline. “Why?”, you may ask – because one of the largest threats to our existence and way of life is directly influenced by our government.
Poll after poll on this site as well as others state that most preppers and survivalists are concerned about the United States having an Economic Collapse. Regardless of the specific criteria of what an economic collapse is….the primary cause will be irresponsible governmental fiscal policies. The bottom line is for years and years – but especially worse recently – the United States government has spent MUCH more money than they take in. Our debt has grown to the point that it is very likely that we have literally gone past the point of no return. The is no fixing it.
Over-regulation and intrusiveness set to the side – our current political system has led to the devaluing of our dollar and reduction of Freedoms. The country which I grew up in and looked to raise my children is WORSE now and continuing down a path of immorality, anti-religion(Christian religion, that is), and creating generations of entitlement.
Government is NOT the cure all for everything, however they are within the roots of so much evil and literally are pushing us over the edge in so many ways. The progressive policies of this administration and many of those in Congress – on both sides of the political sphere – are tearing this country down.
To give you a heads up – I am very Conservative in my beliefs. I am a Christian. I am no fan of this Administration nor the liberal/socialist/progressive conglomerate. I try to look at problems and situations dealing with facts, with logic, and with a sense of what is right…..not just what is politically correct or will gain votes at the polls.
If you have different beliefs than me – great! That is not a problem. We can be respectful to each other and in the end as long as you know I am right we will get along just fine. 😉
Take care all –
