I’m afraid that we’re not. I’m not prepared for what will happen if – God forbid – Obama is reelected. I think we are less likely to see conservatives take to the streets in that case. Conservatives are much more civil than leftists. But if Romney wins, we are more likely to see rioting.
Based on the article I read this morning on Infowars.com via Drudge, it sounds like we could see some dangerous deeds after the election. Some of the tweets reproduced there are pretty disarming, as well as pretty illiterate.
My sister-in-law Dena has stockpiled light bulbs and food. I haven’t, at least not to any major extent. Certainly not like she has. I have lots of rice. LOL But I’m not prepared like most people seem to be. We have not gone out and purchased guns or additional ammo for the one 22 that we’ve had for over 35 years. Although I admit that we’ve been to the pawn shops and looked.
On the other hand, I’m not anticipating riots in my little Arizona town either. If they occur, I envision those in our cities and urban areas. Therefore, the best thing for us is to stockpile food and money and prepare for shortages due to high gas prices and some possible rioting.
We planted a survival garden this year and we ate everything out of it. Well almost everything. I was able to dehydrate peppers. But we ate all the tomatoes. Our fruit trees are too young to produce enough fruit for canning or freezing. Hopefully next year we’ll have some kind of crop.
But being prepared is not a stupid or looney idea. Natural and unnatural disasters occur all over the country and the world and shortages of food and products could easily happen. We’ve seen that in higher cotton and peanut butter prices just this year.
There are countless websites and videos all over the internet to assist and instruct on this topic. Take advantage of the internet – while we still have electricity.
