An economic decline is just one disaster that preppers seek to prepare for. When the economy falters, unemployment and poverty can run rampant and crime will escalate.  Desperate people will be forced to do desperate things in order to survive.  As the prices of necessary commodities rise, the buying power of the dollar shrinks.  As central banks the world over print more currency, and introduce it into the economy, the purchasing value of that currency goes down.  As the national debt increases the dollars value decreases.

Additional reasons for economic decline include debased currency, inflation, declining credit rating, failed stimulus plan, unwieldy entitlement programs, unions and lobbyists, pork barrel projects, government subsidies, over-regulation, illegal immigration, the complexity of derivatives, and escalating debt which results in higher taxation and a lower standard of living.

America; that once great promised land is currently in decline.  Here are the most troubling indicators that reflect this.

  1. Full scale assaults are currently underway on our rights as guaranteed under the Constitution.  The 2nd amendment is the most noticeable; but others are being ignored or trampled on by those in power as well.
  2. Unemployment.  When you have to use faulty statistics to lie to the public; something is indeed wrong.  an unemployed person whose benefits have run out is dropped from the unemployment numbers; what kind of proper statistical analysis is that?  The real unemployment numbers if all the unemployed were actually counted would approximately be about 30%.
  3. Lack of accountability.  Liberal politicians can lie all they want and make backroom deals without fear of consequences; as they are partnered up with the lame stream media that covers up their misdeeds, unless of course you are a Conservative; then you are vilified.
  4. Laws are currently designed to protect criminals and hinder law abiding citizens.  Why else would prosecutors go after law abiding citizens in court; who use a legally purchased firearm to defend themselves against armed thugs.
  5. Racism.  Whenever there is a philosophical difference in legitimate policy issues; leave it to liberals to play the race card.  Racism is at an all time low in this country; but not if you listen to the liberal pundits who want to have Americans continue to hate each other, instead of focusing on the political issues that really matter.
  6. Liberal judges who make their own laws or make rulings based on emotion or what MSNBC tells them to do; rather than follow the strict interpretation of the existing laws.
  7. The city of Detroit.  The perfect model for liberal policy and financial failures.

As many of you have no doubt experienced; ammo in many places is in short supply these days.  The following are the reasons why.

  • 2 billion rounds have been purchased by the government; in many instances by departments that one would not normally expect to be stockpiling ammunition.
  • Panic buying is happening by law abiding consumers; as they try and get ammo before it is either banned, restricted or subject to high taxation.
  • Demand is currently outpacing supply; which is why as soon as certain calibers of ammo hit the store shelves they are sold out almost immediately.

This is an important lesson in why ammo; like other commodities should be stocked up on using a preparedness philosophy.  If you stock up on any necessary commodity when times are good and supplies are plentiful; you won’t be scrounging and scrambling when times are not so good and supplies are scarce.  Good luck and stock up wisely and safely 🙂
