I'd hope, after so many years, that every single patriot/Constitutionalist/freedom lover has the precious metals, the ability to purify water, the defensive weapons and no debt. I know those of us who have been financially challenged have done their best.
Partriot wisdom, just a few months or short years ago held that we should shoot for 6 months of long-term food in storage. At least 500 rounds of ammo for each of your 2 or 3 primary weapons. At least 20 ounces of silver and at least 3 of gold.
I achieved or surpassed these marks years ago. Got myself set up with 2 months of food but the woman and 2 kids had 6 months. A few months ago. Now there's space appearing on the shelves.
With long-term storage we've largely been immune to food inflation. Up till now. If Helicopter Ben and Tax Cheat Timmy allowed the economy to correct and junk assets to be marked to market, our 6 months of food and our metal and trade items might have been enough.
As it is, we're slowly eating our survival future right now. In about 6 months to a year, about 33% of patriots will be eating their fingernails for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
However, these are mostly hard-working salt-of-the-Earth types who actually know how to do things. To build structures and wire them for electricity and plum them. To actually till the soil and grow food. To actually master the rifle and know how to defend with it. Because not all survivalists or survivally-minded people are patriots.
Some of them are just thugs with guns awaiting the right opportunity. I know. I've talked to some of them. They think the ONLY survival tool required are guns and ammo, because they FULLY INTEND to prey upon the weak and defenseless. And a quite word is circulating among these, words that have not been uttered in a long, long time: ALL THINGS BELONG TO THE BRAVE.
It's an acient Celtic saying. It means "you have what I want and I'm going to take it from you". Leading to the very medieval reality that the man who has much in coming times will need help to maintain it.
To all those who have the nice, rustic "used to be a farm", you know that tax-shelter thing where you run a few geese and ducks across the land every now and then and call it a farm: it takes a couple or few YEARS to bring fallow fields back into production. Tillage doesn't happen overnight. So start now by forming relationships and GET THAT LAND BACK INTO PRODUCTION NOW. THERE IS NO MORE TIME TO WAIT.
