Did The Donald Kill Prepping? Don’t Count On It.
Now hear me out on this one. I am breathing the same sigh of relief that the Hildabeast didn’t become POTUS as much as you, but I’ve noticed a somewhat disturbing trend as of late. It seems that some folks have closed the chapter on prepping in light of President-elect Trump’s recent win. Don’t do it. Here’s why:
Firstly, the President, while powerful, is not in charge of monetary policy. That’s the Federal Reserve’s job. This unelected, non-governmental group of private bankers controls the money’s interest rate, printing presses, and pretty much every aspect of how our dollar is valued. Of course, the President and Congress agree on a budget and other nuances of how that money is spent and saved (or NOT!). But the reader must understand that the ceaseless printing of money under the pleasant moniker of ‘quantitative easing’ is a major factor in the looming debt bubble’s imminent burst. The Donald may reform the budget, but there are still trillions of extra dollars floating around that will have their eventual reconciliation with reality. When that happens, you’re going to wish you had been more diligent in saving supplies and acquiring skills.
Secondly, our nation is irreconcilably divided. Strong words? You betcha, but they are accurate. These great United States have vast chasms of difference in the way they view gun rights, taxation, moral issues, and the appropriate role of government in the lives of its citizens. In short, we have starkly contrasting and deeply oppositional cultures within the gridlines of this land mass called America. Can the Donald unite them all? Doubtful. Not saying his intentions aren’t there. The real test is this: Do the Mountain People of East Tennessee really want to continue living under the consequences created by renegade states like New York, California, and New Jersey? Do the farmers of Southern Illinois, Nebraska and Iowa really want to tolerate being lectured on their environmental sins by cityfolk in New York, Chicago, the Beltway and San Francisco? Nope—don’t think so.
