ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE?

ARE YOU READY?
ARE YOU READY?

AWD had a conversation last weekend with Wayne Allyn Root. We talked about a lot of things but one thing that struck me was he said the economic collapse of America IS going to happen. It cannot be stopped at this point. I guess 5 years of printing $85 billion per month might not really be that great an idea! Then again, following Zimbabwean monetary policy never was a good idea! Maybe the Fed will simply run out of paper.

I was discussing my conversation with WAR today with a friend here in Dallas and he asked me what I thought we needed to survive when the dollar collapses? Should we purchase gold and silver, guns, food, etc? All of the above? Should we have a bug-out location to head to should the world as we know it come to an end?

I gave him these wise words and I hope you will all take them to heart: “Hell if I know!”

One thing I would be very nervous about would be any money in the stock market. Companies have been benefiting from artificially low interest rates while cutting labor and production costs for years now. Interest rates WILL rise. AWD read an article at Ulsterman Report where supposed Wall Street insiders are getting out of the market in preparation for the collapse. All of this jives with what Wayne told me last weekend.

What I really told my friend is we will need food and the means to defend ourselves and families. Gold and silver might be nice but, when the lights go out, guns and ammo will most likely carry much more trade value. This is not discounting the need for something with trade value. Gold and silver are probably the best solutions. Food will also be important in an economic collapse as the transportation industry will be as screwed as everybody else. Shelves will probably be empty. It would be wise to have several months of food supply stored while Americans start figuring things out.

My buddy and I discussed that there would initially be burning and looting in the welfare-dependent mooching areas. These types are totally dependent on the taxpayer dollars for their sustenance and will be the ones least prepared to deal with an economic collapse. In Texas, the looting will largely be contained to the ghettos. I wouldn’t want to live in Philadelphia or Detroilet!

I don’t see middle class people killing their neighbors to steal their food or belongings. I believe people will pull together to help and protect each other. Think of the aftermaths of floods in Iowa vs New Orleans post-Katrina. Americans are a kind and generous people, certain classes excluded. Red States with self-dependent citizens will get a handle on the mayhem much faster than Blue State hellholes filled with violent moochers.

One thing we both agreed is the federal government cannot survive after the economic collapse in its present form. The federal government must be pared to a sliver of its bloated present form if the republic is to remain intact. No more Departments of Agriculture, Education, Labor, Energy, EPA, etc. Those days will be over. If not, look for Red States to pull away and form a separate country that follows a proven formula for economic success and individual liberty….the Constitution. We are in our present situation because we have moved so far from the vision of the Founding Fathers. Time to get back to basics!

Personally, AWD doesn’t care if I go to Delaware again. Ever. I would prefer to not have socialists from Blue States having say over my money and freedoms like I currently suffer with the likes of Barbara Boxer, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Charlie Rangel, Nancy Pelosi, John McCain, etc. I would prefer to see them all wearing stripes to atone for the destruction of the United States. Lifelong corruptocrats in office are a certain recipe for disaster.

So it wouldn’t really bother me to see a dissolution of the United States. We’re totally divided already. Red States from the Carolinas to Arizona could form the Constitutional States of America with the Capital in Texas. Preferably, not Austin. California would probably split and conservative Southern California would likely join Red States giving the new CSA port access from sea to shining sea with freedom from legacy business-killing regulations. The old USA filled with socialist Blue States could live their big-government, high-taxes, low-freedom lives to their little communist hearts extent. And yes, the CSA would enforce our borders. North and South.

Will any of this happen? Who knows? It would take a major catalyst to enrage every-day American citizens to revolt like we saw in Ukraine and Venezuela. The collapse of the dollar might be just the thing. When there are no more food stamps and welfare checks, moochers will riot, loot and burn. When gas goes to $12 per gallon and bread is $8 a loaf (if you can find it), every life will be affected. There will be great anger and liberal control mechanisms like political correctness and name-calling will no longer fly. No one will care about being called a racist for criticizing Obama when their child is starving. Millions don’t care already!

Would the federal government impose martial law? Maybe. But who would abide by it? Certainly not Texas! They could send every single employee from Homeland Security to Texas but they wouldn’t be able to secure Waxahachie! Texans don’t like the federal government and everyone has an arsenal. Would the military fire on Americans? Probably so, in some cases. But this isn’t Venezuela or China. We WILL fire back if fired upon. There are too many patriots in America to allow ourselves to be made slaves (more than we already are) by corruptocrats in Washington.

One thing my friend and I agreed is America would bounce back in whatever form we choose shortly after a collapse if government is not in the way. In America, we do one thing better than anyone else in the world when the government is minimal. Create wealth! There are too many smart and motivated patriots who would spend the rest of our lives building a new country where our children and grandchildren can live freely and prosper without being worried about IRS audits if they criticize the regime in power. It would probably be easier to rebuild from the ground up than to try to fix the disaster zone politicians have created in Washington. Plus, there probably isn’t enough time before the collapse to get rid of the crooked politicians who have destroyed America.

There are a lot of things I can think of to make America better after the collapse but now is not the time to discuss. But term limits and bans on lobbyist money are two of them! Kiss gerrymandered districts goodbye too! There will be no place in government for corrupt idiots like Sheila Jackson Lee in the new America! Ooops, there I go…don’t get me started!

What do you think? Is an economic collapse on our horizon? How do you recommend we prepare ourselves to survive? Do you see total anarchy or isolated areas of rioting? Is AWD’s thought process off on how things might go? It’s a scary time. It may become much worse in the near future. Let’s make sure we are as prepared as we can be.

  1. What do you think the gangs are gonna do in a shtf scenario?

  2. Oh yes, the collapse is coming and unavoidable. As I see it, the biggest trouble will be in the early days. When the EBT cards stop paying out, and the ferals start to riot in their shithole enclaves across the nation, Ovomit and his socialist sidekicks will attempt to appease them by having the military, DHS, or both confiscate whatever is deemed to be “more than you deserve to have”. This means everything from food to asswipe, and everything in between. This will then be distributed to the “needy”, the needy being Holders people. And they will also try to confiscate any and all firearms to protect the public. (Remember Katrina?). This will lead to armed insurrection and/or civil war.

    To prepare, if you don’t have acreage that will grow food, you need to stock up on food with long shelf life, medical supplies, toilet paper will be a high demand item, as will batteries, shampoo and soap. Gold and silver are good to have, but the main currency will be .22lr ammo. Unless you have a good well, you had better have a way to filter/sterilize water, a Berkey filter with spare filters will be a lifesaver.

    Count on raids by groups of ferals (of any color/nationality), when unprepared people see their kids starving, it will be the fault of the prepared, in their eyes, so be ready to defend yourself at any time, day or night. Always be within arms reach of a firearm, and remember that handguns are what you use to fight your way to a rifle.

    Those that have and can keep possession of land, will stand the best chance, they will have people willing to work and protect the land in return for a place to stay and food. A warm place to sleep, and a safe place to shit is not to be underestimated.

    Those that live in surburbia will have to band together to survive by blocking off neighborhoods, and using yards to grow food.(again, water is paramount). Those who live in urban areas will be able to stay in place for a while, but once the power goes out you’ll have to move to where food and water are, otherwise you’re screwed.

    Ultimately, the government will try to take/keep control of everyone, by force if necessary. Regions that band together such as the areas AWD noted will need to defend themselves against the dying thrashing of an overbearing government unwilling to surrender it’s power

    Eventually, when order is restored, damn near all politicians who survive, will need to be tried and sentenced for treason to the United States, and causing/contributing to its downfall.

    • I seriously need to move to America. And by America, I mean Texas. What with Texas being one of the few states worthy of being called a part of the good ol’ U.S. of A..

  3. those who have food will survive…those who can produce food will prosper.
    food water, lights and heat(the electricity may or may not be available),
    and the means to produce more.
    that means seeds, land, tools, a strong back and the will to work from sun up to sun down…water purification methods…alternate heating means, and the fuel necessary for them(more hard work..fire wood dosen’t split itself)
    don’t sell community short…if everyone helps the one in front of them, the one behind, and the ones to the left and right of them, things will be better quicker.
    good luck and we’ll see you on the other side

  4. anyone who is worth their salt is saying this fiat economy can not be sustained……printing Obama bucks without any regard for what is to come…..it’s insane……no country has survived with this sort of economic policy……every country that has tried this has failed and caused more misery than I can convey here……yes, I fear this…..I don’t know when it will happen but if this continues it is inevitable….the collapse will happen……no bullsh!t intended….the collapse will happen…………

    I don’t know if this collapse can be prevented with some sort of emergency austerity restrictions imposed on this bloated, out-of-control spending by idiots in the congress refusing to face this impending disaster………..if the economy goes south, and it will, we need to hold those responsible for this…..and I mean hold them responsible…….summary executions is the only solution……

    I’m not sure what’s going to happen, but something has to give. Luckily I live where there is much wood for fire, animals to hunt and fish to catch. Although, everyone will do the same. Hell, I’ll fry up my wife’s frickin cat if I get hungry enough. I wish I had more money to buy a pile of ammo, but will have to just buy what I can and hope it’s enough. God help us all.

  6. For some the economic collapse has already happened. No job, no savings, foreclosed homes, repossessed cars, and broken families. It’s only a economic depression when it happens to you, otherwise it’s labeled a economic downturn.

    When it happens on a national scale the collapse won’t be as violent as the reset.

    Buy Bic Lighters now. Lots, and lots, of Bic Lighters, they were the hottest trading commodity in the Siege of Sarajevo

  7. I worry less about our Army firing upon us, and marauders then I do others nations coming into help quell the violence. That is something to honestly think about. If things hit the fan, I imagine the UN would be stationing European and Far Eastern troops on our door steps to “keep the peace.”
    That is saying it got that bad though.

    Third time’s the charm, right? Wutta guy. Check out our conservative hero putting the Tea Party (mentality) in their right place.

    You go Mittens, in your bouffant coiffure and your $3,000.00 Italian silk suits.

    When the Marxism finally hits the fan I’m happy to know that our Fuhrer Obama and his will be safe and warm.

    White voters are strongly against the law, with 33 percent supporting and 62 percent opposing it.

    Luckily, nobody gives a damn about white voters.

    By the way, earlier this month Mr. Emanuel wrote a piece in the New Republic entitled: ‘Insurance Companies as We Know Them Are About to Die And here’s what’s going to replace them.’

    In that article Emanuel celebrated the end of private insurance companies. In fact, his piece ends with the line: “So be prepared to kiss your insurance company good-bye forever.”

    I take the poor man’s path I must refuse your test
    push me and I will resist

  10. Just for the record, as a recent escapee from Southern California to the Birthplace of the Greatest State in the Country (Texas) Southern California IS NOT CONSERVATIVE. North Eastern CA is. Southern California consists of San Diego, West Hollywood, all the way up to Orange County. Don’t make the mistake of thinking Orange County is this hot-bed of conservatism, most are RINO Republicans. Just like everyplace else, Unions Run the Ports in all of CA. Most in Southern CA openly welcome government control of their lives, so don’t count on that port. The few that are liberty minded are looked at like space aliens.

    Besides, with all of the Nuclear Radiation in the Pacific from the Fukushima Plant, who wants anything to do with the Pacific Ocean anyway? BTW, that’s not a joke about the nuclear radiation in the Pacific, if you know what’s good for you, you will stop eating Tuna and anything else that comes out of the Pacific Ocean……that plant hasn’t stopped dropping radiation into the Ocean, they’ve only stopped reporting it.

    My buddy is an AWD and I hope everyday he gets out of that hell-hole known as S.C. … but I think he’s stuck.

    • Finally, someome tells it like it is about SoCal. It’s silly to think it’s this bastion of conservatism. I’ve been in OC for five years and you would never guess it’s a Republican county. That’s why everyone assumes it’s a liberal hellscape. Newport Beach is suppossedly the most “conservative” city in California, but when you go there you see these ultra glamorous hot chicks, botox, fake boobs, high narcissism, exactly the types from all the recent dystopian movies like Hunger Games, Divergent etc. Southern California is a lot like The Capitol from The Hunger Games imo. Nothing like friendly, liberty minded Texans.

  11. The good thing about the economic collapse is that all of the liberal scum will die a slow agonizing death.

  12. Well looks like its hitting Louisville Ky pretty hard finally. We had our first roaming gang of domestic terrorist (ie young black individuals) attacking everyone they came across this weekend.
    It was reported no serious injuries and the police refused to take any information.

    56 y/o handicapped man, beaten by 20ish people, 3 skull fractures.
    61 y/o beaten in front of his 2 grand daughters 4/7 and wife.
    13 y/o black girl and white male who tried to protect her beaten.
    Along with others.

    I guess we are going the way of Milwaukee and other lovely cities.

  13. I have heard that there are FOREIGN troops (Russian, Chinese) on our soil, have been for some time. They will not hesitate to fire on Americans.

    And get ready for looting courtesy of the hoodrats.
