Top 10 Reasons America Depends on Survivalists and Preppers

Posted on the 25 July 2011 by Jc_refuge

Nice piece on preparedness posted at Bob Livingston's Personal Liberty Digest.
My two cents: 
I’ve been in the preparedness business for 10 years (www.prepared.pro). What I have seen and experienced throughout that time (and for the decades prior when I was in related activities) is that there are two key “deliverables” to a serious preparedness avocation that are not necessarily apparent on first blush …
1. Peace of mind. There comes a balance in life when one has a solid foundation of “life” insurance. Bad things happen out there daily, to some degree or another … from personal setbacks to community catastrophe or worse. Knowing that you personally are well situated for most anything life can throw at you means you sleep well at night–even when the headlines are at their most frightening. To say the least, folks who are at peace are not a problem for their neighbors or for the authorities.
2. Responsibility. Not only are folks who embrace readiness not a problem, they are often part of the solution when issues do arise due to natural or manmade disaster. But even before disaster strikes, citizens who put forth the effort to personally mitigate risks are also extremely likely to take their sense of community and responsibility to others and as citizens very seriously. They are often active and materially involved in initiatives of real value– politically, socially, commercially, and professionally.
