If you've been following my posts on the American Insurgency and how you need to Prepare Yourself Now, then you know I believe that there are some serious things we are facing in the future.
Am I being a conspiracy theorist? Judge for yourself. In the past few months we've seen:
And that's just going off the top of my head.
As we go into the next 90 days before the election, let me ask you this question:
Given the dismal performance of our leaders on both sides, do you think things are going to calm down before the election?
If the marxists, anarchists, and other groups are free to burn down our cities under the guise of social justice now, what do you think will happen if Trump wins the election?
Ah yes, and then there's Biden. What does your world look like if he wins the election?
Some of these marxist groups are on record saying they are building a "New America." They want a total destruction of the old order to bring about their vision. Will Biden save the Republic from this threat?
So what now?
Well, I'm not going to tell you to buy 10,000 rounds of ammo, food, and water to last you an entire year. It's too late for that. Yes, you need to be prepared, but supplies alone are not going to be enough.
Frankly, I don't know what the future holds, but I do know this: you are better off going into these times of uncertainty as part of a team, rather than as an individual.
I didn't make that up. That's ancient wisdom. In the book of Ecclesiastics, the writer says:
"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up." Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
If you're not working as part of a team, you're just storing up supplies for the next guy.
Right now, you should be building your own network - a team of like-minded individuals you trust who will have your back if things go south.
This isn't just a good idea for now, it's a good idea for always. Natural disasters, crime, and other threats are always in play. It makes sense to have a group of people you can rely on in tough times.
Be thoughtful about who you bring into your group. Being likeminded is not enough. The people you draw into your circle must to be trustworthy, faithful, and well-rounded.
You don't need ten "gun guys" in the same group. Shore up your strength and deficiencies based around these factors:
What are you missing or lacking? Who's a good fit to fill the gaps?
90 days isn't a lot of time. Be realistic about what success looks like. If you're starting out, maybe just forming a group, making sure that everyone is supplied, and has a communication plan is enough.
If you've been at it a while, maybe you should reevaluate your PACE planning regarding your supplies, communications, and other contingencies.
Either way, we all have work to do.
Now is not the time to fear. Don't buy into the gloom and doom of the media. Fear and hopelessness is not a virtue.
There is still good in the world - your friends, your family, and our country. They are worth fighting for. Now is the time for action!
